This year marks my twenty-sixth year in the practice of law. It has been a great journey, and I have been honored to assist many individuals and businesses along the way. I am grateful to be able to return my practice to Philadelphia, which is where I first began the practice of law and learned how to be a litigator.
Licensed since 1988
A few years ago, Joyce drove a few hours one way to join a weekend morning trial workshop I had organized at my law firm to prepare for an upcoming trial where my client was going to testify. That by itself says a lot about Joyce and her commitment to helping other lawyers obtain justice and in improving herself as a lawyer. Her participation in that workshop was with her whole self and was right on the money. Not long after that, Joyce co-organized a weekend continuing legal education retreat that included a great exercise in setting the scene during storytelling at trial. That also speaks of Joyce's devotion to improving the service that clients receive from their lawyers. Deeply thanking Joyce.
