About Me

My experience has prepared me well for life as a solo practitioner.  Following law school, I worked for three years at a small, general practice firm in Lancaster that focused on real estate, land use and development.  Thereafter, I practiced in and around Philadelphia with various defense firms representing insurance carriers, Fortune 500 companies, and municipalities.  This background will serve me well as a solo practitioner.
