Beth’s practice focuses on complex commercial litigation with an emphasis on white collar compliance and defense work, as well as media, defamation and privacy law. She also represents attorneys in disciplinary proceedings and hearings before the Pennsylvania Board of Law Examiners.
Beth has significant experience with pre-trial and trial proceedings in both state and federal courts, as well as alternative dispute resolution. Recently, Beth drafted a successful motion to dismiss a complaint asserting complex contract and due process claims in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Beth briefed those same issues when the plaintiff appealed and the Third Circuit affirmed the trial court’s decision dismissing the complaint.
Beth also recently defended a case in Pennsylvania State Court where damages in excess of $1 million were sought against her client. The bench trial resulted in a complete defense verdict.
While she represents clients in a variety of industries, Beth spends considerable time representing clients in health care and higher education.
