I have 42 years of experience, and specialize in the field of travel, tourism, hospitality with specific knowledge in the areas of risk management, custom and practice and evaluations. I have published on such topics as travellaw, travelers rights,, tourism and hospitality law and independent contractors. I have testified 75 times on topics such as risk management, independent contractors and travel industry custom and practice. Travel and tourism is the number one service industry in most countries and specialists like myself are rare with such a diverse background of supplier and carrier and agents. I helped to form IFTTA an international forum of travel attorneys in 40 Countries to share travel,hospitality tourism,and transportation law knowledge. I have been helpful in analyzing the risk and crisis management issues of a case and suggesting additional theories of responsibility or non responsibility that the law office had not yet thought of.
