Washington is dysfunctional. Many issues have reached crisis mode.There is an Opioid crisis, a deficit crisis, a balanced budget crisis, an immigration crisis, and a student loan debt crisis. I will use my vast business experience to solve these complex issues with simple solutions that appeal on a bipartisan level. I want to bring common sense back to Washington.
I am an advocate to solve problems as they arise, not ‘kick the can’ down the road to future generations of representatives. We all want a balanced budget, lower taxes, sustainable healthcare options, more jobs, and a strong economy. As a lawyer who has practiced in the tax arena, my primary concern is job and wage growth. We must maintain a strong economy.
I built a very successful tax law practice over 35 years, representing individuals and small businesses just like those residing in PA 06. My parents, brothers and I also owned and operated a chain of Wendy’s restaurants for over twenty years, which we sold about a decade ago. I was on the team at Quigley that established Cold-Eeze as a national-brand. I have also invested in numerous start-ups and small businesses with similar success stories. I have solid business experience.
I was born and raised in southern Pennsylvania. I attended St. Joseph’s University, Philadelphia, PA and was awarded a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration Management & Marketing. I received a Juris Doctorate from Widener University Law School in Wilmington, DE. I am not a career politician.
I clerked for the Honorable James McGirr Kelly in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of PA. I was an associate attorney at Blank, Rome, Comisky & McCauley- my father’s law firm. I opened my own practice in March 1987. I am admitted to practice before the courts in PA, NY and NJ. I am a member of the United States Tax Court, US District Court, the US Courts of Appeal for the both the Second and Third Circuit, the PA Bar Association and various sub-committees. I have experience drafting law.
I have been an active been a member of the Union League of Philadelphia for the past 38 years and the Richmond Cardinals Rugby Club. I am personally invested in helping the residents of PA 06 maintain the lifestyles they and their families cherish.
