About me

I am an associate at Caroselli, Beachler, McTiernan & Conboy, L.L.C.   I  earned my Bachelor of Arts from the University of Pittsburgh in 1987 and my law degree with honors in 1990.  


Named as one of Woodward & White's list of Best Lawyers in America, Workers' Compensation practice in 2007, 2008 and 2009 and to Pennsylvania Super Lawyers 2010, I have also received the Pennsylvania Association for Justice's George F. Douglas Jr. Amicus Curiae Award for  appellate advocacy. Admitted to practice in Pennsylvania in 1990, I was also admitted to practice in the United States Court of Appeals, Third Circuit in 1996, and the United States Supreme Court in 1998.  I am a member of the Allegheny County Bar Association, and the Pennsylvania Bar Association where since 2003 I have been a Faculty Member, Course Planner and currently is Chair of the Workers' Compensation Section. I am also a member of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice where I continue to be a member of the Board of Governors since 1998, and a member of the Amicus Curiae committee since 1999.  


My practice areas include Workers Compensation Law, Civil Litigation, Civil Appeals, and Personal Injury Appeals.  


I have presented and authored Continuing Legal Education programs for the PA Bar Institute, the PA Association for Justice, and Bureau of Workers' Compensation on topics such as Handling the Workers' Compensation Case, Tough Problems in Workers Compensation, Annual Updates for Civil Litigators and Ethics.    


In addition to my work for the firm and my clients, I have also served the community in which he resides: As the Mayor of Avalon Borough, Allegheny County, from 1994-2005, and since 1995, as a member of the Allegheny County Air Pollution Control Advisory Committee where I continue to serve as its chairman since 1998.
