 [as-accordion clicktoclose="true" autoclose="false" openfirst="true"][as-accordion-item title="Practice & Expertise"]

My areas of practice include, but are not limited to: governmental and municipal law, civil litigation, commercial litigation, and criminal law. In 2016, I was appointed as the Solicitor for the City of Hermitage and the Hermitage Municipal Authority.

I have experience handling a broad array of cases throughout numerous areas of the law, and since no case is the same, I work with my clients to achieve their individual goals.

[/as-accordion-item][/as-accordion][as-accordion clicktoclose="true" autoclose="false"][as-accordion-item title="Background"]I was born in Coudersport, PA and was raised in the small town of Shinglehouse in Potter County, located in north central Pennsylvania. Except for attending law school, I have lived in Mercer County since 2000, and am a 2004 graduate of Thiel College in Greenville. As an avid sports fan, I spend time throughout the summer months on the area’s many golf courses. In the fall and winter months, I regularly attend Penn State football games in State College and beyond.[/as-accordion-item][/as-accordion][as-accordion clicktoclose="true" autoclose="false"][as-accordion-item title="Associations & Memberships"]Pennsylvania Bar Association
