I have been engaged in civil litigation since 1974 in the state and federal courts of Pennsylvania and since 1992 in the state and federal courts in New Jersey. I hold a J.D. from Villanova University School of Law and a LL.M. in Trial Advocacy from Temple University School of Law. In the last 30 years with Devlin Associates, my duties have included theory development, expert consultation, pleadings, discovery, expert depositions and testimony, motions, settlement conferences and negotiations, case evaluation, arbitrations, bench trials, jury trials, and appeals. Over my career, my practice has included personal injury litigation, dram shop actions, fires, product liability cases, building collapse cases, wrongful death, bar fights, construction site accidents, bad faith and insurance contract litigation, dog bites, assaults, motor vehicle and truck accidents, fall downs, and numerous other matters. I believe early theory development is critical to achieving a successful disposition of the case. I enjoy working with clients, claims representatives, and businesses in partnering to secure the best result possible for a given case. Please call for further information.
