I'm a small-town kid from DuBois, PA, whose parents instilled in him the values of hard work and
honesty. The oldest of four children, I saw how my mom and dad worked hard to provide for us. I learned from their example, and graduated from Duquesne University a semester early with two degrees, and earned a full scholarship to Dickinson Law School. Since passing the bar in 2006, I've brought that same work ethic to my practice to obtain the most successful (and economic) results possible for my clients. I've learned from many quality lawyers during my time in practice, both how to and how not to handle a variety of matters. I have extensive experience in the courts of Central PA, and know how to get results both in and out of the courtroom. So what do I think sets me apart from other attorneys? I think my ability to empathize and identify with a client gives me an advantage. When you come to me with your legal problem, you're not just a number or a case name. You're someone who has trusted me with helping you resolve a situation that is often very stressful and consuming. That trust is paramount, and frankly, humbling. Your importance as a client isn't based upon the value of your case or how much time I'll need to invest to reach its conclusion. You're important to me because you've placed a very significant part of your life in my hands, and are asking me to help guide you through it. And I enjoy doing so, and get a great fulfillment from it. So if you think I can be of service, get in touch. If I can't help you, odds are I know an attorney who can.
So practicing law's what I do, but who I am? I'm a father to three amazing children that keep my wife and I on our toes at all times. I enjoy playing outside with them and helping them with homework (though Common Core can be infuriating at times). I'm an avid reader currently working on a sendup of, and a tribute to, the unreliable female narrator genre (think The Final Gone Girl in the Window on a Train). I enjoy scouring flea markets for vinyl records and watching z-grade horror movies. And I look forward to hearing from you.
