As a personal injury trial attorney who has practiced for over thirty years following my life's passion of only representing seriously injured individuals, I literally live, breathe, eat and sleep my chosen profession 24/7. No one knows this better than my clients.
I was born in Philadelphia as well as both my parents, who were a part of the so called "Greatest Generation", my father having fought in WWII. By example they inspired a strong work ethic in both working full time until retirement while raising three children. My first job in Philadelphia would find me as a food and beverage vendor in the stands at Phillies home games and the Army Navy games during my latter years of High School. While in college I worked in the summers from sun-up, as a house painter, painting interiors, exteriors, climbing high roofs, eaves, using scaffolds, you name it etc. After that part of my day was done, I worked from the 4:00 p.m. to midnight shift as a cab driver in Philadelphia for Yellow Cab and during xmas and spring breaks I drove for cab companies in the outlying suburban counties.
After law school I worked in a general litigation firm handling criminal defense, divorce, insurance defense and civil rights which immersed me in the life of courtroom litigation. While newly married I left my secure position in a firm as a personal injury trial attorney to start my own practice. I figured this was my best chance in launching the practice I envisioned before raising a family came into the picture. On occasion I've been asked by my clients "How did this firm come about, did I inherit it, or possibly take over another firm?" The answer is when starting my practice years ago, I barely had a handful of cases and my wife was making a steady yet modest salary as an early childhood education director/teacher. I treated each case as if it was my only case, because it was! Since I felt my very survival and success were dependent upon my client's satisfaction, I developed the habit and resolve to go for the "home run" with every case no matter how big or small. To me, there is no substitute for the experience of knowing that your hard work and heavy lifting has produced life changing and satisfying results for someone. It also instilled in me what a weighty responsibility it was to be entrusted with another individual's representation, and to this day I remain appreciative for the opportunity to make a positive impact on every client's life that I have the honor of representing.
Quality Representation With The Focus On Results Has Always Been The Firm's Driving Force
The goal and pride in providing quality representation has always been a driving force behind this firm and whenever I am handing my injured client's check to them I feel as though I'm giving them back a piece of their life.
I am proud of the fact this firm was literally built, "brick by brick", one client at a time. I consider it an honor and privilege to serve you and your family. When a person entrusts me and I accept to represent them, I don't take that relationship and responsibility lightly. As a leading Pennsylvania injury law firm, our unwavering mission has always been to treat each client as we would want to be treated if the roles were reversed. As a result of this care, we regularly have individuals coming to this office that were referred by my very first generation of clients.
