About Me

A lifelong resident of Western Pennsylvania and a partner at Raizman Frischman & Matzus, P.C. I received my bachelor's degree (with honors) in 1983 and my Juris Doctorate degree in 1986 from the University of Pittsburgh. I have extensive experience handling a wide array of personal injury cases.

As an invited member of the Academy of Trial Lawyers in Allegheny County and a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, the Allegheny County Bar Association, the Western Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association, the Pennsylvania Association for Justice, and the Association of Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America, and was recently invited to join the prestigious Million Dollar Advocate Forum. I have been privileged to be named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer by Philadelphia Magazine, an honor bestowed on the top 5 percent of attorneys in Pennsylvania. I currently serve on the Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice. If you are seeking a personal injury lawyer in the Pittsburgh, Cranberry Township, or Greensburg area, I can help you pursue a personal injury settlement or verdict that will compensate you for your losses and expenses.

Over the course of my career, I have been privileged to represent hundreds of individuals who were injured in automobile collisions, by medical malpractice, by defective products, in industrial site accidents, and by hazardous conditions on property.

I have served on the boards of a number of civic and non-profit organizations. My community service includes a term on the Board of Directors for The Family Trust, a non-profit organization whose purpose is to enhance the lives of individuals with special needs. I am also active in the community, serving the past 10 years on the Board of Directors and as co-commissioner of the Squirrel Hill Baseball Association, an organization that has more than 850 participants.
