His litigation experience includes representation in both state and federal courts throughout the United States and includes jury trials, arbitrations and appellate matters.

He is admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Courts of Appeal for the First and Third Circuits, the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the Eastern District of Tennessee.
