Legal Experience That Stands Out

Prior to joining the firm in 2019, Kristyn was a summer associate at a health care law firm based in Mechanicsburg, PA, assisting with Medicare/Medicaid regulations and employment law claims. She also completed a summer internship with the Honorable William H. Amesbury of the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas in the summer of 2017.  Kristyn is a member of the Luzerne County Bar Association.

While earning her J.D., Kristyn earned experiential learning credits as a Certified Legal Intern with the Civil Rights Clinic at the Tribone Center for Clinical Legal Education at Duquesne University. With the Civil Rights Clinic, Kristyn assisted low-income residents  of Allegheny and neighboring counties pardon, seal, and expunge their criminal records. Kristyn also worked with individuals who felt their civil rights had been violated, such as in employment or housing.

While in law school, Kristyn served as President of the Duquesne Italian-American Law Society and Treasurer of Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, Egan Chapter. She was also a member of the Women’s Law Association and participant of Trial Advocacy. During the summer of 2017, Kristyn traveled to six cities in China (Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an, Chengu, Chongqing, Hangzhou) to study Intellectual Property and Environmental Law in a comparative context.

Kristyn is a native of Luzerne County.  She currently resides in Hanover Township, PA.
