Cary has collected multiple millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for his clients over his 28 plus years of practicing law. He has tried 25 jury cases to verdict and has arbitrated over 500 mandatory and uninsured motorist cases.
During the first two years of his legal career, Cary worked as a criminal defense attorney and was involved in the trial of many major criminal jury cases, including 1 death penalty case. He came to the conclusion that he wanted to spend his career in personal injury where he could fight for the rights of those who were injured and help them obtain justice. He first joined a mid-sized plaintiff’s firm where he learned a great deal while second chairing construction accident cases and handling many of his own files. After two years there, he left to join a high volume plaintiff’s firm where he developed the skills that make him the successful trial attorney that he is today.
His practice areas include auto accidents, slip and falls, bicycle accidents, medical and nursing home negligence, and work related injuries. Currently, many of Cary’s cases involve uninsured motorist arbitrations. His background as a trial attorney has allowed Stein & Shulman to flourish as an attorney referral destination for uninsured and underinsured motorist claims as well as hit and run cases.
