Appointed by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to serve as a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Washington County, Pennsylvania, 27th Judicial District July 12, 2016 to December 31, 2017.

From May 1977 until October 1997

My primary emphasis was medical malpractice, motor vehicle accident and professional liability defense. I litigated cases on a regular basis in at least eight counties and tried approximately 85 jury trials to verdict.

From November 1997 to July 12, 2016

My practice has continued to be concentrated on personal injury litigation, with a primary emphasis on representing Plaintiffs in State and Federal Courts and injured workers in Administrative Proceedings. During this time I tried approximately 15 jury trials to verdict.

I served as the lead counsel on all of the cases that were tried to a conclusion, including jury trials, bench trials, and administrative proceedings.

I served as a court appointed mediator and judge where I presided over mini-trials for Washington County and was selected, by various litigants, as a neutral arbitrator involving various uninsured and underinsured motorist cases and disputes concerning oil and gas matters.

Approved to serve as a neutral arbitrator by the United States District Court for the Western District

Municipal Solicitor:

McDonald Borough 1978 – 1984
City of Washington 1988 – 1992
North Franklin Township 1992 - 1999

In addition to concentrating on civil litigation the past 35 years, I served as an Assistant District Attorney for Washington County. I also handled defense of criminal cases during the first five years of my practice.
