I earned my undergraduate degree from Indiana State University (B.A. Criminal Justice) and my law degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law (J.D., Civil Litigation Program). I focused on civil litigation during law school and was a founding member of the Civil Litigation Program. During law school I worked as a law clerk for my current law firm and became a partner in 2005 at Eddy DeLuca Gravina & Townsend. I have extensive experience in complex litigation in both state and federal courts. Routinely I facilitate and speak for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute on a wide range of topics, educating others in the legal community on new and ever-changing laws and regulations.
I sit as on the Board of Directors for Riverside Center for Innovation, which opened in 1992 to promote and foster the growth of entrepreneurial enterprises. RCI consists of strategic synergies among our businesses to provide a virtual company including accounting, public relations, risk management, research and real estate ventures. I also help form the Veteran’s Court in Allegheny County. This program was one of the first of its kind in Pennsylvania.
I have practiced in several areas of law but I have devoted the majority of my practice to the Criminal Defense. I am a Criminal Justice Act attorney for the Western District Court of Pennsylvania.
When you call my law firm for help in a criminal matter, you will meet directly with me and I will personally handle your case from start to finish.
I am a member of the following organizations:
I am licensed to practice in:
Contingent (5-40%), Retainer (sometimes), Free consultation (60 minutes)
