He was also the business representative to the newspaper, moving and storage, and entertainment industries, and oversaw new law implementation including a new statute governing personal storage facilities.

  • Fully trained in the Law
  • A persistent activist for Constitutionality in the Courts & Government

Jim has pursued concerted litigation in the Pennsylvania and Federal Courts and Appeals Courts for many years, out of personal endeavor, and out of a patriotic duty to challenge government and other blocs’ infringements on Constitutional rights. Jim has extensive experience with liability, intentional torts and crimes, estate trusts, civil rights, agency and administrative appeals, nursing home and other medical violations, contracts, and warranties.

Jim has also continually addressed municipal departments and the State regarding community-oriented goals such as zoning and land use matters, many of them contentious. He has pursued appeals of municipal decisions, representing himself, when the public interest has been abandoned or violated. This has given Jim experience in Delaware County, Chester County, and Philadelphia County, as well as various Committees of the Pennsylvania General Assembly and Senate and other State Agencies and Boards, many of which are familiar with Jim’s knowledge, professionality, and persistence.

Jim has recently been busy :

  • Opposing the sovereign immunity granted by the legislature to State employees, and the Pennsylvania Courts’ sweeping ongoing granting of immunity even where shown prima facie cases for liability for conspiratorial, intentional, reckless, and/or wanton behavior.
  • Litigating in the Third Circuit Court of Appeals for application of the Constitutions to parties denied suit without opposing parties ever being brought into actions; opposing Judges’ improper use of authority to dismiss unrepresented citizen’s suits.


  • Opposing deprivals of access to the courts and due process, that result from application of the Pennsylvania Rules of Appellate Procedure regulating form of appellate briefs and appendices and other cost-imposing requirements.


  • Fighting the overt unconstitutionality of Pa.R.A.P. 552 and 553 regarding indigent parties, because they deprive poor and unrepresented litigants of: access to courts and appeals, due process, and rights to defend life, liberty, and property.
  • Fighting for enforcement of Pennsylvania and U.S. Laws that direct criminal sentences for infliction of harm or deprivals of Constitutional rights to nursing home patients and the infirm.


  • Ardently supporting and leading post-911 efforts to prevent the stepped-up dismantling of American’s rights and values by unscrupulous politicians and power brokers. Jim helped publicize the true nature of TARP handouts, rewards paid to Fannie Mae executives despite their role in causing the mortgage crisis, U.S.Supreme Court molding of the Constitution into a toothless and morally bankrupt document, and similar travesties inflicted by many representatives in recent history.
  • Fighting for relief and amendment, to eliminate deprivals of rights to life and liberty, free speech, property and due process, to the aged, and the religious, by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Dept. of Health’s policies regarding nursing home incidents, the incident inspectors, and programs like Protective services for the aged.


  • Opposing the introduction of slot machine gambling in Pennsylvania because the enabling act is an unconstitutional legislation and a secret legislation. Fighting for declaratory findings that the tying of gambling legalization to school taxes and college aid is unconstitutional, as is the infusion of gambling by the State.


  • Appealing the issue of constitutionality of recent appellate decisions creating a successively narrower definition of standing for purposes of land use appeals that now consists of aggrievemnent by way of ownership of neighboring property, and no other reason. Constitutionality of artificially high fees for challenges to validity of ordinances is also questioned.


Note: Activists like Jim are frequently accused at some point or other of being over-active, troublesome, or inept. Jim believes that these are code words for knowing too much, and being too adept to be tripped up by legal snares. Jim has never been found to have acted illegally or unethically, in his years of appearing before agencies, governing bodies, and Courts. Jim is known for his even handedness and his ability to favorably manage legal and ethical questions and differences with knowledge and fairness.
Jim has also :

  • Successfully sought amendment of the Pennsylvania Rules of Appellate Procedure so that a wide window causing deprival of appeal to citizens denied participation in sales of estate assets, and related deprivals of property rights and due process, could be shut. Pa. R.A.P. 342.


  • Litigated a concerted effort in New Jersey Superior Court and Supreme Court for an upholding of rights to jury trial as intended by New Jersey law, demanding full rights of access to justice and due process to poor and unrepresented parties.


  • Challenged the Article II eligibility of Barack Obama for office of President of the United States, requesting injunction to remedy State and Congressional failure to screen candidate eligibility under “natural born citizen” clause.


  • Fought deprival of citizens’ rights to due process of law, right to defend, and equal protection, that is unconstitutionally inflicted by sections of Pa.R.C.P. 1042.3, Pa.R.C.P. 1042.6 which govern professional liability lawsuits.
