About me

I represent publicly-traded and privately-held corporations, entrepreneurs, property developers and property management companies in complex commercial and litigation matters, including insurance, real estate and transactional issues. I am admitted to practice in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I was recently selected by my peers in Philadelphia Magazine as a Pennsylvania "Rising Star Super Lawyer" and by American Lawyer Media / Legal Intelligencer as a "Lawyer on the Fast Track."
