I have been an attorney for 47 years, with concentrations in complex commercial litigation, municipal law, appellate practice as well as estate planning and administration. I was president of Strassburger McKenna Gutnick and Gefsky–the law firm founded by my grandfather–for almost 25 years. I am the third generation of lawyers on both the paternal and maternal sides of my family. My son and nephew represent the fourth generation in the firm. I am a past president of the Neighborhood Legal Services Association, the Academy of Trial Lawyers of Allegheny County, Jewish Residential Services, Jewish Residential Foundation, and the Greater Pittsburgh Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. For many years, I have been an active volunteer for the Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh, and am a past member of the Board of Rodef Shalom Congregation, and was a member of the August Wilson Center Recovery Committee. My wife and I live in Squirrel Hill. We have two grown children and two grandsons.
