I have been a general practice attorney since I began practicing law in New Jersey in 1983. Since 1991, I have been a solo practitioner in State College, Centre County, Pennsylvania, primarily practicing in the central Pennsylvania counties of Centre, Mifflin and Huntingdon. My practice encompasses civil and criminal matters, including personal injury, malpractice and driving under the influence, with a focus on family law matters such as custody and divorce.

I emphasize problem solving whenever possible as advised by Abraham Lincoln in a framed quote hanging near my desk; he discourages litigation and urges attorneys to use their abilities as peacemakers. I believe this is particularly applicable in family matters and especially in custody disputes. Except in emergencies, my philosophy is generally to litigate as a last and not a first resort. In so doing, my clients usually maintain more personal control over the outcome of their disputes and are more likely to achieve a result which is in the best interests of their child.

In addition to my legal experience as a family law attorney for the past twenty-five years, I also have had the experience of raising three children and having been married for twenty-eight years to Jill, who is my office manager and secretary and an attorney herself.

Additionally, I bring a unique perspective to personal injury law. At eighteen I was involved in a very serious automobile accident and sustained numerous orthopedic injuries resulting in traction, long-term hospitalization, multiple operations and years of recuperation. As a participant in litigation regarding this accident I was personally involved in various phases of the legal process, including answering questions under oath orally and in writing and also being examined by medical experts. Obviously, these experiences enhance my ability to successfully represent my clients.

On a personal note, I swim a mile almost daily as a physical hobby and as an intellectual hobby I write poems, short stories and novels. My most recent novel is currently being considered for publication.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
