Ray concentrates his litigation practice in the health care industry. He defends physicians, medical practice groups and hospitals/medical centers in malpractice claims involving orthopaedic surgery, neurosurgery, general surgery, oncology, gynecology and obstetrics. Ray works up the entire defense from pleadings, conducting discovery and depositions, preparing witnesses for depositions, hiring of experts and coordinating their review and preparing for trial.

Ray likes a challenge. He specifically became a civil defense attorney because he enjoys defending fellow professionals. He has experience in all aspects of litigation, including arbitration, mediation, jury trials and appeals, and has represented clients throughout Pennsylvania, in state and federal court.

When not working, Ray enjoys spending time with his wife, who is a registered nurse, and their five children. As a passionate soccer fan, he has coached all his children in soccer and he is currently coaching his daughter’s U10 travel team for West Mont United. Ray is also an avid movie lover; some of his favorite films are Star Wars and Harry Potter.

Some of Ray’s more notable cases include:

  • Successfully defeated plaintiff’s request for a new trial after a defense verdict in favor of a physician in the Court of Common Pleas of Chester County.
  • Successfully defeated plaintiff’s request for a new trial after a defense verdict in favor of a physician in the Court of Common Pleas of Chester County.
  • Following a defense verdict in the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County, successfully defeated plaintiff’s request for a new trial and appeal alleging multiple judicial errors at trial in a matter alleging failure to diagnose a carcinoid tumor.
  • As trial counsel for the Hospital, obtained a hung jury in a medical malpractice matter against Emergency Room personal for alleged failure to diagnose multiple internal injuries following the plaintiff’s crush injury between a delivery truck and loading dock (matter later settled by co-defendants without Hospital payment).

For four consecutive years, Ray was selected to “Pennsylvania Super Lawyers Rising Stars”. He has also had several appellate victories in the Superior Court of Pennsylvania.
