Life Beyond the Law

I love spending time in Philadelphia’s Wissahickon Valley Park, whether it be trail running with my dog or mountain biking.  I also enjoy indoor soccer, family road trips, and following NCAA Hockey.  But most of my free time these days is spent with my wife just trying to keep up with our two young sons as they discover the world around them.
