How I Work

 Free Initial Consultation

If you would like to discuss your situation or question, get in touch.  I always offer free 30-minute consultations to explore your issue.

Please note:  For ethical reasons, I cannot provide you with any legal advice until a fee agreement is signed.   Contacting me does not create an attorney-client relationship.


Busy nonprofit professionals have multiple personal and professional obligations, so I will work around your schedule to make sure that your organization gets the services it needs. My office has free parking and is within walking distance of the East Busway, or we can speak by phone or Skype.


If we enter into an attorney-client relationship, I will provide you with an engagement letter that lists individual tasks stated in detail, so that there are no billing surprises.  You will receive an itemized billing statement for your records.


I am sensitive to nonprofits’ budgets, so I minimize my overhead and provide a very competitive rate for the Pittsburgh area.  My regular fee is $160 per hour and I bill in tenths of an hour.


Hiring a lawyer can be an intimidating process, but I want to make it as comfortable and friendly as possible.  I aim to provide legal services that are both personalized and personal.  I will be sensitive to your organizational beliefs, values, and mission
