After my 32 years of practicing law in Beaver County, I have decided to run for judge.
My years of experience and commonsense approach to handling cases has helped me succeed in private practice and has earned me the respect of my peers. I have spent my life dedicated to my clients and the community that I have made my home for 58 years.
I have represented thousands of clients over the years in personal injury actions and have litigated cases before juries, judges and arbitrators. I have worked diligently to represent each and every one of my clients. Family law is a difficult area of law to practice and requires patience, compassion, attentiveness and dedication; qualities that I possess due to my years of experience as an attorney in Beaver County.
Apart from my legal practice, I have volunteered for numerous charitable, non-profit, educational and community organizations. I currently serve as the vice president of Penn State Beaver Advisory Board and have worked to promote higher education in our county. I was on the committees for the Central Valley Road Rally and Project Graduation -- even after my children graduated. I have also volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, the Heart Walk, the Salvation Army, Manna and many other charitable organizations.
Finally, I was previously elected Beaver County Bar Association President (2012-2013) and am currently on the Board of Governors for our Legal Journal Committee. I was also instrumental in establishing the Beaver County Bar Association Charitable Giving and Fundraising Committee and have served as both the chair and as a committee member. I am most proud to have received both the Judge James E. Rowley and Joseph S. Walko awards from my fellow attorneys for my commitment, dedication and service to our community.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and learn about me. Over my 32 years as an attorney in Beaver County I have strived to practice law with dedication, distinction and integrity. When considering who should be elected to serve as our next judge, I would suggest that there is absolutely no substitute for experience.
I look forward to meeting Beaver County residents on the campaign trail and discussing my qualifications and vision for serving as your next judge on our Beaver County Court of Common Pleas.
