About me

My 13 years of experience as a prosecutor in the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office and the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General's Drug Strike Force Legal Services Section enabled me to understand criminal investigations and prosecution from the inside out. That experience in the "enemy" camp is  invaluable to my criminal clients in almost all instances. Every effort is made by me to impart my understanding of the system and how each of its component parts intersect, so that each client fully understands the "rules of the game" and the potential consequences of the decisions my clients make after thorough consultation with me. I practice criminal defense throughout Western Pennsylvania.
