About Me

     I have been representing individuals, families, and small businesses since I graduated from law school in 1975.  I believe that most people get confused by the legal system especially with insurance questions-- the system turns them around, nobody explains anything,  and that  turns them off.  I want them to know their rights--that's why we're called The Know Your Rights People.  


     Access to justice is why I offer free consultations, and take death and injury  cases on a contingent fee--which means I don't get paid until I get money for the person I represent.  Unlike many attorneys, I don't represent insurance companies to avoid a conflict of interest.  Also, unlike many attorneys, I charge only for costs outside of my office---many attorneys charge for postage, even phone fees--and then charge interest on that!


      I went to the University of Michigan, then to Georgetown University's Law School, and have a further degree, a Masters of Law, from Temple University.  


     I have been in practice for over thirty five years, and have represented people from adjusters to veterinarians,  whose family members have been killed or who have --through no fault of their own-- had to deal with fractures and all manner of other injuries, from many varieties of corporate and individual carelessness. Some lawyers say they only take "serious" cases--I believe that any injury that causes you  limitations, pain, is serious to you.   Give me a call if you have a legal question about any form of injury--if I can't help you, I'll at least try to tell you who can! And it won't cost you a dime --even the call is free--1-888-PA-LAWS-1 (1-888-725-2971)!
