Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

For the better part of the last 18 years, I have focused my practice on the representation of individuals and their employment situations.

Whether it is a work injury, discrimination or wrongful termination, I enjoy helping people protect and enforce their rights.

I am one of very few attorneys in Pittsburgh certified as a Specialist in Workers' Compensation by the Pennsylvania Bar Association, and who also has an active employment practice. Over the years, I have acquired training and experience in many different areas to ensure that I have all the tools necessary to help my clients resolve their cases and resume their lives.
