Biographical

The primary emphasis of my practice was medical malpractice, motor vehicle accident and professional liability defense. I litigated cases on a regular basis in at least eight counties and tried approximately 85 jury trials to verdict.

For the period from 1998 to 2016, I continued to concentrate on personal injury litigation, with a primary emphasis on representing Plaintiffs in State and Federal Courts and injured workers in Administrative Proceedings. During this time I tried approximately 15 jury trials to verdict.

I served as the lead counsel on all of the cases that were tried to a conclusion, including jury trials, bench trials, and administrative proceedings.

I served as a court appointed mediator and judge where I presided over mini-trials for Washington County and was selected, by various litigants, as a neutral arbitrator involving various uninsured and underinsured motorist cases and disputes concerning oil and gas matters.

Approved to serve as a neutral arbitrator by the United States District Court for the Western District.

Appointed by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to serve as a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Washington County, Pennsylvania, 27th Judicial District July 12, 2016 to December 31, 2017.
