About Me

Personal Injuries can be life altering. As a result of negligent conduct innocent victims are forced to seek medical attention, lose wages, stop regular life activities. When this happens you need an experienced legal advocate. I am an attorney that other attorneys hire when they are injured. I have 30 years of trial experience, I am a Governor of The Pa. Trial Lawyers Association, and a frequent lecturer at Personal Injury Seminars.
