Published in 2017 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers Magazine — June 2017

My nickname is … MAM, The First.

I can’t go a day without … coffee.

If you were in my office, you’d … be shocked by the number of stuffed monkeys that I have.

When I was a newbie lawyer I … didn’t know what I didn’t know.    

The quality I most like in a lawyer is … honesty.

My pre-trial routine is … listening to “Lose Yourself” by Eminem. 

When I started, I wish I knew … that the practice of law is not as black and white as it is taught in law school.  

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … a dentist.

When I win a case, I celebrate by … having a Crown on the rocks.

I can do a pretty good impersonation of … Bullwinkle and Elmo.

On weekends I … coach youth soccer year-round for my son and daughter.

My most bizarre talent is … before I got old and inflexible, I could put my legs behind my head, and, in fact, had to do it at my sixth grade graduation.

I get angry when … opposing attorneys are unprofessional and disrespectful.   

My favorite song lyric is … “Opportunity comes once in a lifetime.” 

I wish I had invented … the zipper.

The last TV show I binge-watched was … 24. Now it’s Nickelodeon and Disney all the time.

My guilty pleasure is … ‘80s heavy metal, especially Guns N’ Roses.

If I won the lottery I’d … relax, relax, relax.

My courtroom walk-up song would be … “Real American” [by Rick Derringer].
