About Me

I'm an Allentown native with a broad-based practice, focusing primarily on civil litigation throughout eastern Pennsylvania at the state and federal levels. I am  President Elect of the Lehigh County Bar Association. I also serve as a court-appointed arbitrator in Lehigh County.  I previously served as the judicial clerk for the Honorable Robert Freedberg, retired President Judge of Northampton County and the Pennsylvania Superior Court.  I also served as the case editor for the Lehigh Law Journal. For the past several years, I've been recognized by Pennsylvania Super Lawyers as being in the top 2.5% of attorneys state-wide in my practice area.
