Attorney Profile

I am a third generation attorney in practice for 39 years.  The law is in my blood.  My father and grandfather taught me integrity.  

As my father did for years, I follow in his footsteps and volunteer and participate in the Philadelphia Judge Pro Temp Program.

I am passionate about my business, however, it is not just a job.  My firm is a small firm with a small firm mentality.  From the smallest to the largest cases whether handled directly by myself or one of my associates, I oversee each case.  I have litigated over 200 trials. 

My firm has been AV rated for 10 plus years which is the highest rating with the Pennsylvania Bar Association and Martindale-Hubbell. We have received numerous honors and awards from various organizations and peers.  We continue to provide the best possible service that can be offered to our client base.
