About Me

 


I was born and raised in Carroll County, Maryland.  Immediately after high school, I served in the United States Air Force for four years and then the Hawaii Air National Guard for three years. 


 


I graduated from St. Leo College with a B.A. in Criminology, Summa Cum Laude, and from The Dickinson School of Law of the Pennsylvania State University with my Juris Doctor. 


 


During law school and for many years after, I worked as a clerk and then as a contract attorney for Richard L. Bushman, Esquire.  Immediately after law school, I worked as a law clerk for two years for the Honorable John D. Kuhn in the Court of Common Pleas of Adams County, Pennsylvania.  I then was hired as an associate attorney for McQuaide Law Office and worked for Robert L. McQuaide, Esquire, for approximately seven years.  McQuaide Law office is located in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.


 


 I moved to Indiana County, Pennsylvania in 2008.  My husband has three beautiful children who attend school in Indiana County.  Before opening Eshelman Law Office, LLC, I worked as an associate attorney at Silverman, Tokarsky, Forman & Hill, LLC from February 2010 until March 2014.  My main practice area is family law and includes adoption and estate planning.  I currently practice in Westmoreland, Cambria, Indiana and Somerset Counties.  I am a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, Family Law Section; the Cambria County Bar Association and the Indiana County Bar, with a social membership in the Indiana County Bar Association.  My membership application for the Westmoreland County Bar Association is pending.
