Review Thomas Tupitza

About Me

I advise clients in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors, including health care providers, on finance, real estate and governance matters. A past president of the Pennsylvania Association of Bond Lawyers, I am active as bond counsel in tax-exempt financing transactions. My real estate practice includes significant involvement with condominiums, and I am a licensed title insurance agent in Pennsylvania and New York. I have served as President of Knox McLaughlin Gornall & Sennett, P.C. since 2007.
