Just as important as my educational background, I have a strong interest and desire to represent working people who are experiencing problems with the legal system. As a child, I had the privilege to live with a father who was also an attorney.
My father practiced law in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, for 40 years. At a young age, I was exposed to the realities of the legal world, which was very helpful to me throughout the years. However, I was also instilled with a strong sense of helping the less fortunate.
Before my father became an attorney, he was a coal miner in northeast Pennsylvania. He did heavy labor and mined coal to work his way through college and law school. He passed on to me a sense of value for those people who work hard. I dedicate my practice to those who have to work to make a living.
