About me

I have been practing criminal law for 22 years and personal injury for 17 years. I have represented clients charged with homicide, sexual assault, firearms violations, felony drug offenses and, of course, DUI. I have instucted other lawyers on "DUI Strategies". I have handled criminal cases in at least 20 counties. I am licensed before the United States Supreme Court.

I have handled personal injury cases from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia and I have settled a case for $1 million.

My firm charges reasonable fees, accepts all major credit cards and the consultation is always free.
