Dear Butler County Voters,
I have practiced law in Butler County for nearly 30 years. I am part of a respected Butler law firm, it is at this firm where I learned courtroom skills and how to practice law from skillful, highly respected, and ethical attorneys. And having served as a law clerk for the Pennsylvania Superior Court, I understand the importance of a Judge's role in 'getting it right' the first time.
I have been honored to have received the “AV-Preeminent” rating from Martindale-Hubbell (since 2012), evidencing that my peers have rated my legal ability and ethical standards to be at the very highest level. I also have a 10.0 AVVO rating. I am a hardworking lawyer and will be a hardworking judge.
In addition to my experience practicing law, I also recognize the value of knowing the community that one serves. I went to grade school at Holy Sepulcher and to high school at Knoch. I received my associate’s degree at BC3 and then went on to Pitt to finish my undergraduate degree and go to law school. I have deep roots in the community. I am honored to serve as the chairman of the Board of Trustees at BC3, my alma mater, and the Passavant Development Corporation, a non-profit organization that helps adults with special needs. I also serve on the board of Future Forward Churches, an organization that helps churches reach the next generation. My wife, Susan, our daughter Julie and I live in Cabot.
While legal knowledge and courtroom skills are important for a judicial candidate to possess, other traits are also important. Character, life experiences and temperament are also key components to a Judge’s ability to serve in this important role. Growing up, I was taught the value of honesty, hard work, commitment and community. I have applied these values to the way in which I do my job as an attorney. If elected, I will bring these values with me to the bench.
