I owe a lot to the city of Pittsburgh and am proud that this is the place that I choose to call home. I attended law school at Duquesne University School of Law. Pittsburgh is where I met and fell in love with my beautiful wife, Mary-Ellen. It is the city where I was married and am raising my two daughters, Olivia and Victoria. This city inspires me, and I feel compelled to help those in my community who have been wronged.
Personal Injury Attorney | Litigator | Pittsburgh Proud
Attorneys routinely boast that they are "aggressive, tenacious," or use some other overplayed adjective to describe their legal abilities. I am not going to that. I don't need to puff out my chest and proclaim that I am a fierce adversary.
I would rather stand by my record as a trial lawyer, the reputation that I have built with past clients, lawyers and judges and a simple promise, to work as hard as I can for my clients. I will ensure that every member of my firm is dedicated and gives sustained A-level effort to achieve the best possible outcome for your case. To quote Babe Ruth, "It's hard to beat a person who never gives up."
Experience That Matters
I have always found it odd that many lawyers claim to be "experienced" simply based on how long ago they graduated law school. Some lawyers even take this one step further touting "combined experience" by adding together all the time elapsed since graduation of every attorney at the firm. Experience should not be measured by the number of years that have passed since passing the bar exam and number of grey hairs. Experience should be measured by what an attorney has accomplished since graduation, not when he or she graduated.
To be a truly effective lawyer, you need real world experience. Law school teaches students nothing about practicing law; you must go out and do it. Just like you can't be a great football player by watching instructing videos or reading about playing the sport, you can't be a great personal injury lawyer without playing the game.
Prior to starting my own law firm, I served for years as trial counsel for the catastrophic injury division of a large and prestigious personal injury law firm. I began forging my reputation as a top trial lawyer within 3 months of passing the bar exam. I have spent my entire career representing people injured by the negligence of others. During that time, I have been called on as trial counsel for some of the most catastrophic injury case imaginable. I have represented people suffering from paralysis, loss of limbs, brain injuries, and other life altering injuries.
