About me

As of May 1,2013, I am a Pa. Workers' Compensation Law Certified Specialist. I am certified as a specialist in the practice of workers' compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association  Workers' Comp Section and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.


I offer a unique perspective to representing the injured worker in Pennsylvania. I have 25 years experience representing employers and insurance companies. I know how they think. I know their strategies. I know their tactics. I now can offer the Pennsylvania injured worker my experience and knowledge to fight against these big companies and for the rights of injured workers and their families.
