PROBLEMS IN PHILADELPHIA AND MY PERSPECTIVE

NeuwirthLaw In the News, Sue The City

How you look at the world is colored by your background, education, race, politics, etc. Many of my clients initially see me as an overfed (meaning the diet is not working) white lawyer and think I am a trump fan, which I am not.
