About Me

I am a consumer rights attorney who has used State and Federal laws to provide cost-free legal representation to thousands.  I have been featured on numerous television and radio programs regarding consumer issues, and have been honored for five years running as a Rising Star by Law & Politics Magazine. 


 


To contact my firm for Lemon Law help, call 1 800 LEMON LAW.  If you are a victim of debt colleciton harassment, call 1 800 NOT FAIR. 


 


One of my crowning achievements was authoring an ammendment in the Chrysler Fiat sales agreement guaranteeing that Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep consumers would continue to have Lemon Law and Federal Warranty rights when the car company was sold.  See http://www.lemonlaw.com/articles/chrysler-lemon-law.html for more information.


 


I am a graduate of Drexel University, holding dual Bachelor of Science degrees in Political Science and International Area Studies. Following graduation from college, I earned my law degree from Widener University School of Law.


 


Since law school I have practiced in various areas of civil litigation including real estate, commercial, personal injury, and bankruptcy. My current practice area involves representing consumers in Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Pennsylvania Fair Credit Extension Uniformity Act, Truth in Lending, Lemon Law, breach of warranty, and consumer fraud cases, as well as, representing consumers in debt defense cases, bankruptcy and foreclosures.

In addition I am admitted to practice before the District Courts of New Jersey, Eastern and Western Districts of Pennsylvania, Eastern, Middle and Western Districts of Tennessee, District of Colorado, Eastern, Southern, and Western Districts of Texas, Southern, Central and Eastern Districts of California, Eastern and Western Districts of Arkansas, Northern District of Ohio, Eastern District of Michigan (pending), as well as, the before the United States Supreme Court and Third Circuit Court of Appeals.

    Amy is an exceptionally gifted litigator. She has been a senior associate at my firm for the last 7 years, during which it has been my absolute pleasure to supervise her. Whether it's Fair Debt Collection Practices, Lemon Law, Dealer Fraud or other consumer claim, Amy can and has done a remarkable job for our clients, from trying a jury case to settling before suit is filed and everything in between. A voracious researcher, gifted writer and keen strategist, her strengths lie in an ability to assimilate information at breakneck speed, and to then use what she learned like an authority on the subject, to secure the best outcome for the client. Amy can do it all.
