As the owner of a small business myself, I understand the issues, pressures, and concerns faced by any business. Although I have represented national corporations regarding their operations in central Pennsylvania, my focus has, and always will be, on local small to mid-size businesses, and all of their contract, employment, corporate governance and other day-to-day legal needs and matters. Recognized as a “Best of Harrisburg” Business Attorney, I can bring both legal and practical know-how to any business or corporate law issue.

Business disputes

Recently recognized by my peers in the legal community as a “Select Lawyer” in Commercial and General Civil Litigation, I have litigated cases throughout central Pennsylvania and in Federal Court. As an experienced litigator, I can recognize and address potential disputes before they arise. In the event litigation is necessary, we address issues promptly and aggressively, yet look towards alternative avenues of resolution if available.

Business succession

Small and family-owned businesses make up the majority of our business community. Succession plans for these businesses require a pro-active approach, with coordination of all legal, accounting, estate and other matters. My experience in estate matters is invaluable in addressing long-term succession plans.


The rate of new start-up businesses continues to decline. I value the entrepreneurial spirit, and therefore work closely with new business to provide the proper legal advice, while also recognizing the financial burden all new businesses endure.
