I graduated from college in 1971. I took a year off to work for Marsh & McLellan in NYC. In 1972 I applied to the University of Toledo for law school. I served a year on the law school governing board. Upon graduation, I relocated to York, Pa., to serve as the sole law clerk for the judges of Pennsylvania’s 19th District. In 1976, I became an associate to Frank B. Boyle. Being active in the Democratic party, I was fortunate enough to be appointed Solicitor to the Block Grant Program of the York County Planning Commission, Solicitor to the York County Transportation Authority, Solicitor to the York County Transportation Authority, Solicitor to the Clerk of Courts Marlyn Holtzapple, and Solicitor to York County Children & Youth. We protected thousands of children.
I always enjoyed school so I applied for an LL.M. degree from Temple University in 1979. I commuted every Monday for 3 ½ years to Philadelphia from York. I graduated in 1983 and then devoted all my efforts to create an employment practice. By 1990, I did nothing but labor law and employment.
