About me

I am a 1983 graduate of Temple University School of Law and a 1979 graduate of Penn State University.  I have been practicing law in Erie, Pa. since 1983 and I have focused my practice on personal injury litigation.  This includes auto accident claims, including claims of serious bodily injuries and death.  I also represent clients in medical malpractice claims involving serious injuries. I represent clients throughout the northwest Pa. region.
