While I write books with the intent to educate, I hope you’ll learn a little about my personal philosophy on the practice of law and life.

The purpose of these books  is to provide you with a broad understanding of criminal justice and criminal defense. If you would like to explore these topics in further detail, I encourage you to review the texts, the statutes, and the judicial decisions cited within it. While most of the concepts and terms focus on matters within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the core principles are applicable to other state jurisdictions as well as the federal criminal justice system. 

I have committed my professional life to representing people charged with crimes. It is a lifelong commitment that requires continuous education, training, and self-improvement. This book and the knowledge it contains reflect my personal and professional core values:
