Bad NEWS! This guy is so bad I ended up negotiating my divorce with my Ex-wife and her attorney directly. This guy could not negotiate visitation terms or even win a simple case involving transportation. He would NEVER return phone calls, never return e-mails, and never consult with you about your case, strategy, or anything. He's horrible at answering our questions (HUGE ego problem - God Complex). He would never call you to let you know what happened in court when he would represent you in your absence. He is a rogue attorney who goes off and files things (whenever he gets around to it - When he feels like it) without your knowledge or permission. He even screwed up my custody case wherein my daughter had been sexually assaulted in her home by waiting for months too long to file any paperwork. The Judge yelled at him about this in court! This guy could not win his way out of a wet paper bag let alone ANY case in court! He's a useless waste of Oxygen! Please do not waste your money on this Bad, Bad, Bad Lawyer!!! Needless to say, I ended up firing his butt after I had finally had enough. I'm considering reporting this clown to the state ethics board and the Allegheny County Bar Association for his clearly demonstrated poor ethics, misrepresentation, misconduct, manipulation and theft by deception. At times during my divorce, I believed he was possibly working for apposing counsel. That should NEVER be the case. I always felt as though my case did not matter to him. All he was ever interested in was money, and how he could get more out of my pocket. Slick talker when it comes to getting you to pay him but once he has your money, he turns into a ghost in the fog. If you hire this guy (even to wash your kids bicycle) you will end up regretting it!!! Trust me, I've Been there, Done that (over a few years), and glad I fired him!! He does NOTHING honorably!

Phone calls never returned . Over priced .Thinks he works for the head of the estate not the estate . Caused family problems for not properly instructing head of there duties and that they may in no way have a personal gain in an estate.
Pa estate return not filled out correct . Family settlement agreement was closing estate before house was sold . Leaving rest of family to hire there own lawyers to get questions answered because he or the rep. will not answer them . Leaving estate still open for many years .

I was a client, but was never able to get my phone calls returned in a timely fashion. This attorney, while extremely knowledgeable, never kept me informed concerning the status of my case.
