Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Richard gained a vast knowledge from experienced trial court lawyers who handled Workers’ Compensation cases.

Since the start of his career, Richard has advocated for victims injured due to negligence and has been trying cases in both federal and state courts. He understands how injuries greatly impact victims’ lives and strives to gain maximum compensation for their injuries. Richard handles many different cases, including car accidents, medical negligence, slip and fall accidents, defective products cases, and other personal injury cases. Richard also handles numerous Workers’ Compensation cases and has experience with helping clients who have suffered from disabilities. Work injuries often involve companies and individuals, and Richard has the compassion and comprehension in both areas, which allows him to further enhance claims for victims.
He was certified as a civil trial specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, which is a prestigious certification that is awarded to select few for their extensive trial court experience. He was recertified in 2004, 2009, and 2014, and is extremely proud of these achievements.
