I've been a sole practitioner for 39 years in PENNSYLVANIA. I CAN ONLY DIRECTLY REPRESENT CLIENTS IN PENNSYLVANIA and in FEDERAL COURTS. My assistant/paralegal/secretary has been with me for over 34 years. I concentrate in civil litigation, personal injury, domestics, i.e. divorce, custody, equitable distribution, wills, estates, non-violent crimes, business matters, real estate, landlord tenant, and matters focusing on individuals. If I don't handle the area of law that you need, I'll refer you to another lawyer who I would hire and who does. (Pennsylvania recognizes and permits referral fees from lawyer to lawyer.) I work either on a gross contingency plus costs basis or on an hourly rate plus costs basis. (I rarely work on a fixed fee basis as that is rarely fair to the client.) I am fully computerized. My strength is client service, working with the client in developing strategy and tactics, and in organizing and structuring the client to fully participate in and understand the legal process so that the client can making knowing, intelligent, and voluntary decisions. Clients receive pdf's of virtually all communications and pleadings. "Ethical personalized Service". A lawyer who listens to you.
