What is the most fulfilling part of your job?
On the education side, whether I’m on the school side or the parent side, it’s being able to help children with special needs. I’ve been fortunate have success in the municipal world, as well. I was just elected chair of the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Municipal Law section.

Build relationships and a network on a personal and a professional level. It’s the relationships and the connections that you make, whether in your practice area, the bar association or in the community where you’ll find your clients, learn your craft and earn the respect of your peers.
