About Me

I am an experienced workers’ compensation, social security, and employee disability benefit attorney who has handled cases throughout Pennsylvania. In 2013, I became one of the first lawyers certified as a specialist in the practice of workers' compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association's Section on Workers' Compensation Law, as authorized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.  A leader in the field of injury and disability law, I routinely give presentations and teach other lawyers, injured workers, insurance professionals and medical professionals about these constantly changing areas of law. I have  helped thousands of clients with workers’ compensation, social security (SSDI and SSI), and disability insurance claims.
