Book Cover 2021 Front.jpg

“[T]here is no other book on Pennsylvania Evidence as insightful and ‘reader friendly’ as yours. From the standpoint of a trial court judge, who was once a trial lawyer, the numerous comments which follow the rules are invaluable… [I]f I were teaching Pennsylvania Evidence, I have no doubt that I would be using your book.”

                         – Montgomery County Judge 

“As one of the newest judges, I can’t begin to tell you how invaluable your treatise has been. No matter what evidentiary question I have encountered I have found the answer.”

                         – Lancaster County Judge


“[B]ristles with post-it notes from use.”

                         – Western Pennsylvania Judge

“[T]he best work of its kind anywhere.”

                         – Allegheny County Judge

"This book is a must-have for any litigator’s library… Counsel will find answers quickly, and with plenty of authority to cite, no matter on which side of the aisle they stand... Its real value, however, comes from the fact that nearly every Common Pleas Court judge in the commonwealth uses the book.”
