We give you candid advice at the outset of a matter, outlining the range of possible outcomes and the probable costs associated with achieving those outcomes. We work diligently for you to settle your case. We are licensed in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and regularly represent Pennsylvania clients with respect to their New Jersey legal affairs. We are experienced in federal and state court, arbitrations, administrative hearings, professional license hearings, jury trials, and mediations.more…

Our Practice Areas:

Estate Administration

We help with the necessary legal steps when you have to administer the estate of a family member or friend, including advertising, notices, distributions, paying taxes, etc. more…


Call us to provide legal representation and administrative assistance in probating the estate.  We are capable of handling every aspect of the probate process for you, and, if you prefer, we are willing (not all law firms are) to participate with you in the process, providing counsel only where needed, and dividing responsibilities. more…


A legal guardian is a person who obtains the legal authority (and corresponding duty) to care for a person and/or the property of another individual. Guardians are typically used in three (3) situations – guardianship for an incapacitated adult (due to old age or infirmity), guardianship of a minor and guardianship for developmentally disabled adults. Our firm can assist you in obtaining the right Guardianship. We are familiar with the Orphans’ Court proceedings from filing the necessary petition to attending the incapacity hearing. more…

Employment Law

Within the employment law context, we regularly litigate employment contracts (especially for senior management or professional employees), professional license hearings, unemployment compensation, issues arising under the Wage Payment and Collection Law, and employment discrimination or matters arising under federal labor law statutes. We litigate Age Discrimination, Disability Discrimination, Gender Discrimination, Race Discrimination and FMLA claims where the facts warrant a lawsuit.  We counsel clients on Non-Compete Agreements and Restrictive Covenants. We have litigated in the area of security clearance denials.


In difficult times, we are available to counsel and represent you in considering whether or not to file for bankruptcy protection, and if you make that decision, what type of bankruptcy will be most effective.  Bankruptcy is intended to be a ‘fresh start’ and we will work diligently on your behalf to provide counseling that will bring you through the process. more…


Drunk driving is a serious charge. Legal counsel is needed as soon as possible if you’ve been charged with driving under the influence.  You want to have counsel to navigate the legal system.  We will work to assist you in lowering your fines or reducing your penalties where that is possible.  In many cases, we can guide you through the ARD process (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition), which is a special type of application and plea which reduces sentences and penalties on those who meet the program’s requirements. more…

Criminal Defense

We understand the serious nature of these charges and offer our clients a thorough, aggressive approach to your defense.  Where motion practice may result in dismissal of all charges, we pursue it.  We advocate zealously for you in plea negotiations. We are candid with your chances of getting charges dropped or reduced to a lesser charge. more…

Real Estate

This includes representation of homeowners and condominium associations. We review, draft and litigate homeowners’ association and condominium documentation, commercial and residential agreements of sale, the acquisition of commercial property and commercial leases, zoning appeals, express and implied deed restrictions, etc. We represent clients with respect to sheriff’s sales, foreclosures, tax sales and landlord-tenant matters.

Wills and Estates

We handle routine estate planning and estate administration manners, including estate litigation. Prepare your will.

Business Law

Within the category of business law, we draft and review business contracts and agreements, employment contracts, franchise and loan agreements, purchases and sales of businesses, and related transactional documents. We form limited liability companies and corporations and provide operating agreements. We litigate with respect to all manner of business conflicts, including breach of contract, restrictive covenants, commercial debt collection, intellectual property disputes, and certain aspects of corporate law. more…

Construction Claims

Construction litigation is a regular part of our practice and we regularly represent contractors and construction professionals in construction disputes, which often take place under the auspices of the American Arbitration Association.


With respect to insurance coverage, we handle insurance coverage issues pertaining to casualty insurance (which often overlaps with construction litigation), errors & omissions coverage, claims for employment benefits arising from workplace coverage (ERISA), unemployment compensation, and automobile and homeowner coverage claims including bad faith insurance claims when the insurance company unreasonably denies benefits to its insureds.

Caring for Your Pets in the Event of Your Death

There are many things to consider when planning your estate, not the least of which is what will happen to your pets when you are gone. Who do you want to take care of the pet? Does that person agree to take care of the pet? What instructions does that person need? What resources does that person need? Every so often these issues become national news. Leona Helmsley left $12 million in trust for animals, including her dog Trouble, which the court later reduced this to $2 million. Maybe more practically, actress Lauren Bacall recently willed $10,000.00 to her son to care for her dog. more…
