I graduated from Temple University School of Law in 1992. Since that time, I have practiced solely in the areas of workers' compensation, social security disability, and related state and federal disability law. This was further limited to just Pennsylvania workers’ compensation matters over the last several years. In addition to Pennsylvania licensure, I am also licensed to practice in the state courts of New Jersey, and am admitted to practice in Federal District Courts in both states. On various occasions, I have been a speaker at public information seminars, as well as seminars sponsored by The Bucks County Bar Association and National Business Institute, on workers' compensation topics. I have also participated in The People's Law School curriculum, teaching a class on workers' compensation. Most recently, I was invited to join the faculty of LawLine.com, a prestigious legal education provider. I am an active member of the Bucks County, Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Bar Associations. Away from the office, I serve as President of the homeowners’ association of a 400-residence development.

- Q. if I accept $ from workers comp for facial scar, can I get a lawyer later on and sue employers insurance?
- A: Generally, no. Once an issue is decided by law, it cannot be challenged again. This is called "collateral estoppel" or "issue preclusion." So, if you get an award for your facial disfigurement, and it is not appealed, then that determination will be final. However, if you have any disability from the injury, you may still be able to receive those benefits (since that would be a different issue).
- Q. As a delivery driver, I was robbed at gunpoint. Do I qualify for workmans comp?
- A: You need to contact an experienced attorney, especially one certified as a specialist in PA workers' compensation law (as both attorneys with my firm are). It is (unfortunately) common for these types of cases to be denied by the insurance carrier, and force litigation. We have handled cases like this in the past and would be happy to help you. Basically, if a doctor feels that you have suffered a mental injury from the incident (assuming there was no physical injury), we can win if we prove the incident was an "abnormal working condition." Feel free to contact my office, or another qualified attorney, but do not delay!
- Q. Is sever asthma cover by worker's compensation?
- A: Yes, if a doctor says that the condition you have is related to the exposure at work, workers' comp would be responsible for treatment related (this would be known as an "aggravation of a pre-existing condition"). If you are out of work more than seven days as a result of this aggravation, you may also be entitled to wage loss benefits.
