About Me

My suburban Pittsburgh law office offers skilled and compassionate legal services to individuals and families of Southwestern Pennsylvania, Allegheny County, and Washington County.  As a skilled Pennsylvania attorney and mediator, I have over 20 years of legal experience. I also carry previous experience in the areas of tax and accounting and apply this business and financial background to my law practice. This background helps to educate individuals on the complex tax implications associated with divorce, estate planning, and probate and estate administration.


I also hold a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology.  I am a member of the Pennsylvania and Allegheny County Bar Associations, the Pennsylvania Council of Mediators, the Mediation Council of Western Pennsylvania, the Collaborative Law Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania, and the Greater Pittsburgh Counseling Association.


I am a trained divorce mediator and a trained collaborative lawyer - kinder, gentler ways of obtaining a divorce.
