I received my bachelor’s degree with academic honors in 1982 from Binghamton University, where I was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. I attended law school at UNC Chapel Hill, where I served as Research Editor of The North Carolina Journal of International Law and Commercial Regulation. I was awarded my juris doctorate degree with honors in 1988.
Following law school, I moved to Pittsburgh and spent my early legal career as an associate with the Corporate Department of a major downtown law firm. In 1993, I left that firm to co-found a successful law practice in the Wexford area. I established my own practice, also in Wexford, in 2013.

I highly endorse this lawyer. I have known Claire for over 30 years. She attended one of the Country's pre-eminent law schools where she was a member of Law Review and thereafter commenced practicing with a highly respected firm in Pittsburgh Pa., building a nationally respected and well deserved reputation, before leaving to start her own practice. She has the highest ethical and jurisprudential standards.
