I am proud to state that I satisfy each client's needs in a personalized manner. There is no "cookie cutter" solution to legal needs. I have concentrated in my area for over 30 years but have experience in a varity of fields of law, which perspective I use to help my clients. I also donate my time to improving the practice of law: I am a former Treasurer of the Philadelphia Bar Association and am in the House of Delegates of the Pennsylvania Bar Association.
