About me

I reactivated the Philadelphia Bar Association's Traffic / Vehicular Law Committee in 2006, and served as its Chairperson for three (3) years.

I have over twenty (20) years of legal experience, and I have successfully handled thousands of cases.

I have a broad based legal practice, and I have handled several high profile cases. Many attorneys consult me for my advise on various matters that they may be handling.

Be assured that your matter will be handled diligently and competently by me.

I joined Avvo on 4/23/15.
(The prior discipline was for a bar application mistake in 1990.)
