I've been practicing in Western Pennsylvania since 2000, after my wife brought me north from law school.
I was raised in Newark, Delaware, attending the Univeristy of Delaware. Prior to college, I worked as a draftsman for a small engineering firm in Newport, Delaware, just outside of Wilmington. After graduating from college, I worked at Kaplan as an instructor for standardized test preparation. I taught courses for the SAT, GRE, and LSAT. I then went to law school at Washington & Lee University School of Law in Lexington, Virginia.
While in law school, I did two internships: one with the Public Defender's office in Baltimore, Maryland, and another with the local Public Defender in Virginia. For each of these I had the opportunity to sit through a murder trial, assisting the Public Defender in the defense. I also worked as a research assistant to Professor Louise Halper prior to my last year of law school.
After moving north to Greensburg, I worked for a year in Pittsburgh for a small plaintiff's firm, suing life insurance companies for fraudulent and deceptive practices. I then accepted a position at Berk, Whitehead, Kerr & Turin in August 2001. In 2014, Berk, Whitehead, Kerr & Turin was restructured into our current firm, Turin & DeMatt, P.C.
I've had the opportunity to try numerous criminal jury trials, which have included an acquittal in Federal Court in a case where my client was accused of selling counterfeit software to the U.S. Army, as well as an acquittal in a homicide case.
