About Us


Helping Pennsylvania educators see the regulatory framework that governs their profession.  

I am a practicing attorney who lives and works in Verona, PA, outside of Pittsburgh in Allegheny County.  One part of my practice is meeting and counseling educators charged with misconduct.   

I am also a PDE Approved vendor of an Act 48 ethics course for classroom educators.  This past summer my  Act 45 continuing education course for school and system leaders was also approved.  

Paul Fox is my co-author and co-presentor on both courses.
