About the Author
The author is a classically trained musician. He served in the U.S. Navy for four years as a musician, graduated from The Navy School of Music in Washington, D.C. and played first chair trumpet in the Navy Symphony Orchestra at the time. While conducting doctoral studies in classical rhetoric under a fellowship granted by the University of Pittsburgh he was appointed Assistant Director of the Pitt Debating Team, which won regional honors that year.
Following his doctoral studies in classical rhetoric the author entered the practice of law as a medical-legal trial attorney, specializing exclusively in the representation of clients injured in auto, bus, train and plane accidents as well as those sustaining injuries from pharmaceutical products, defective products, medical malpractice and hospital negligence.
In each case-regardless of the type of injury sustained-the author had to battle behemoth insurance companies that represented the responsible party. While litigating against powerful insurance companies possessed of awesome wealth and power the author employed classical rhetorical principles when drafting legal briefs, presenting arguments to the court and delivering final summations to juries.
Adopting rhetorical principles from his doctoral studies the author developed a new methodology of language-usage he called "Linguadynamics" in order to become more persuasive in his legal arguments and summations. He coined and trademarked his methodology "Linguadynamics," which means "language power." In the course of his internecine litigational warfare with financially-powerful insurance companies
"Linguadynamics" proved that "Language power eclipses financial power," as it enabled the author to win precedent settlements and awards for his clients. Using the author's new methodology of language-usage, "Linguadynamics," readers can now impress, bond and persuade in order to "win" what they desire and deserve, but not previously possible or just beyond reach.
