About

When it comes to the law, I like to think on my feet.

When I worked in the United States Senate, I learned that I loved making arguments. The rush of having to make quick decisions on how to proceed was a natural fit, and when my time there was finished, I knew that presenting facts and a case was the next natural step for me. After attending the University of Pittsburgh for law school, I hit the ground running and started working with some bigger law firms. But something didn't feel quite right. So I decided to put myself closer to my clients and their needs, opening Allegheny Attorneys at Law in 2005.

As a lawyer, my natural habitat is the courtroom; it’s where I’m the most comfortable. That’s why when I take cases for clients, I can’t wait to get in front of a judge or jury and fight for them, no matter what their legal situation looks like.

Facing any kind of legal situation is scary, but it doesn’t have to be. No matter the case, my job is to help find the right approach that works for you.


Available When You Need Me

Your legal questions don't just happen during regular business hours, and the law doesn't just stop during the weekend or on holidays. You can call me to ask questions about your case when they come up, and I'll do my best to answer them quickly.

Clear Communication

It doesn't matter what the case looks like, you deserve to know how your legal issue could impact your life. I believe that understanding your case shouldn't be a mystery. From the very beginning, I'll make sure you have a clear picture of your case. I'll explain where you stand, what your options are, and find out what your long-term goals are. Then I'll create a strategy to work through your case, keeping you informed about the process every step of the way.

A Passion for Trial

Every single day, I'm in the courtroom working on behalf of my clients. It's my greatest passion as an attorney. I'm not in the business of seeking a fast resolution or a settlement just to move on.  You can count on me to approach your case from every angle, constantly looking for new evidence that could help reach the most optimal outcome.

Free Consultations and Affordable Payment Plans

Hiring a lawyer is stressful enough without having to worry about paying for it. In our free in-office consultation, we'll look at your case and determine the best course of action. We can then set up a payment plan to make sure you get the representation you need at an affordable rate.
