About me

My practice involves complex estate planning and administration, business planning, succession planning, tax planning and real estate. I was licensed as a Certified Public Accountant in Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia and previously worked in the Tax Department of the Washington, D.C. office of Deloitte & Touche. I have also served as a Judicial Clerk to the late Arnold Raum of the United States Tax Court.


I am licensed to practice in Pennsylvania, New York and D.C. and am AV Preeminent® Peer Review Rated.  I am a member of the Erie County, Pennsylvania, and American Bar Associations, as well as the American and Pennsylvania Institutes of Certified Public Accountants.


I am on the Board of Corporators at the Hamot Health Foundation and serve as an Assistant Coach at Cathedral Prep in Erie, PA.
