He researches and provides opinions on no-fault coverage issues and lectures at seminars on New York’s no-fault law and its ramifications when either an automobile accident occurs to a New York resident outside the state of New York, or when an accident occurs inside the state of New York to a driver that has an out-of-state insurance policy.
