Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, located in Centre County, is the county seat and boasts a population of over 6,100. Bellefonte is located 12 miles northeast of State College and is home to five of Pennsylvania’s governors as well as two other governors.

Bellefonte is home to the Bush House Hotel, built in 1868, which was one of the first hotels in the country to have electric lights. Shopping in Bellefonte is ideal for collectors because of the many antique shops. Every third weekend in May, Bellefonte hosts the “Big Spring Festival” which offers entertainment, crafts, food, music and more. Bellefonte also hosts JazzPA which is their annual summer jazz celebration.

If you live in a small community like Bellefonte, you may not feel comfortable using an attorney from the same town. I am not implying that your local attorney would not do a good job. However, if privacy is an issue, please give me a call. Altoona is not far from Bellefonte, and I practice regularly in Centre County. If your accident or claim occurred near Bellefonte or State College, I have practiced before the judges in Centre County.

Whether you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident, or a car crash or truck accident, my experience can pay off for you. I am very experienced in Pennsylvania motor vehicle law, and general negligence law for other personal injury claims. See my website at, and read about some of my case results, or see the testimonials of satisfied former clients.

If your claim has merit, I will work very hard and strive to obtain compensation for your injuries and damages. Call us at (814) 946-4100 or email me. When you call my office, one of my staff members will do an intake interview. Thereafter, I will review the information and call you to further discuss your claim. I will schedule an appointment with you if I feel that I can obtain compensation for you. We will take care of your other claims problems such as handling your insurance needs, arranging for payment of your medical bills, and obtaining documentation of your lost wages. Your claim will be investigated thoroughly and I will aggressively pursue this claim on your behalf against the other party’s insurance company. You and I will agree on a fee percentage before I begin the work, but you will not be responsible for any payment unless we obtain a favorable settlement or verdict for you. My staff and I will return all of your calls and copy you on all correspondence that we send out on your behalf. You will feel like you are my only client!
