Legal Experience That Stands Out

Aimee has extensive experience in litigating contract disputes, business torts, shareholder litigation, class actions, and diverse business litigation, including a variety of employment discrimination, wage claims, ERISA, and civil rights matters.

Aimee earned her J.D. from Temple University Beasley School of Law, was a Beasley Scholar, served as Senior Note/Comment Editor for the Temple Political and Civil Rights Law Review, and was also a member of the Rubin Public Interest Law Honor Society. Aimee served as a law clerk to Judge Joel H. Slomsky of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

Aimee has served in several leadership positions in the Montgomery Bar Association, including as an officer in the Young Lawyers’ Section, and as an officer of the Association’s Trial Lawyers’ Section. She initiated the Association’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. She was also a graduate of the inaugural class of the Montgomery Bar Association Leadership Academy. Aimee volunteers her time, along with other firm attorneys, representing victims of crime and abuse through the Montgomery Child Advocacy Project, where she has successfully protected child victims in the Montgomery Court of Common Pleas and the Pennsylvania Superior Court. She also serves as a frequent presenter of continuing legal education programs, including on topics relating to health care litigation, federal and state civil practice, and electronic discovery.

Representative Matters

  • Winning a federal unanimous jury verdict for a hospital against claims of age discrimination.
  • Successfully defending a health system in an extended medical staff dispute with an individual physician.
  • Successfully defending attorneys who were sued by their former law firm after they formed a new firm, defeating the former firm’s requested special injunction.
  • Defeating class certification and successfully defending that decision on appeal.
  • After receiving an unsatisfactory order of protection on behalf of a pro bono client that Aimee represented through the Montgomery Child Advocacy Project, Aimee successfully pursued an appeal, was awarded a new trial, and obtained the maximum available protective order on behalf of her minor client against her abuser.
