About Me

     I have been an attorney for over 30 years and have practiced in all areas of employment discrimination and harassment law.  I have also practiced in the areas of personal injury, products liability, and worker's compensation.  I operated my own 5-attorney firm for 20 years and merged with Hill Wallack in 2006.  I continue to practice mainly in the field of employment law.  I lecture at continuing legal education seminars and publish instructional material in the field.


     I have had million dollar verdicts/settlements in both employment and personal injury cases.


    I am active in the Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and Bucks County Bar Associations and the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce.

    I have known Joanne for many years. She maintains a wonderful reputation in the legal community. I can still remember years back when I would see her at workers' compensation hearings with her clients, I would always think to myself..."that client is well represented!"
