Why Law?

The laws of our nation impact our lives every day…I truly enjoy helping people understand that our system of laws is set up to promote the general welfare of our country, our Commonwealth, our communities, and our lives. Imagine the chaos we would have without our system of laws! I love to research and find the buried old case that can still define someone’s future tomorrow….and the way brilliant minds in the United States Supreme Court and the appellate courts of our Commonwealth reason through using recent developments in the law to reconcile the old with the new and weave logic out of chaos! Also, there’s nothing better than a tear of gratitude in the eye of a grateful client.
