Elite Legal Representation In Your Own Backyard.
I am an attorney, who resides in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. I hold a Juris Doctor from Widener University School of Law in Harrisburg and was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar in April 2009. I practice in Columbia, Schuylkill, Carbon, Northumberland, Berks, Dauphin, and Luzerne counties.
I am widely recognized as one of the best trial litigators in northeastern and central Pennsylvania. My passion for the law is unmatched and the compassion by which I serve my clients is unrivaled. Unlike many of my colleagues, I look at and treat each of my clients as human beings, not dollar signs.
I am also the subject matter expert on the Probate, Estate, and Fiduciaries Code in my capacity as the former Solicitor for the Register of Wills and Clerk of the Orphan's Court of Schuylkill County for over 10 years.
Prior to becoming a lawyer, I proudly served as a 19D Cavalry Scout in the United States Army. I managed a group home for abused and neglect teenage boys. And, I worked as a supervisor for various residential treatment facilities for the better part of a decade.
I pride myself as being a leader in my community with active participation in a variety of non-profit organizations.
