Commercial Litigation, Labor and Employment Law
Abby brings a fresh perspective to the practice of law. Like all attorneys at Pillar+Aught, Abby’s practice is dynamic and not limited to just one area of the law. She provides clients with a wide variety of legal services on both litigation-related matters and transactional issues, including drafting loan agreements, ensuring compliance with SEC and UCC requirements, defending against allegations of discrimination, and assisting in the negotiation of collective bargaining agreements (to name just a few).
Before joining Pillar+Aught, Abby worked as a legal intern for the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry. In that role, Abby worked alongside the Department’s Deputy Chief Counsel to help enforce a range of labor and employment laws and regulations, including unemployment compensation regulations, occupational and industry safety standards, right-to-know laws, and wage and labor laws.
Abby graduated from East Stroudsburg University and thereafter obtained her J.D. from Widener Commonwealth School of Law with academic honors. During her time at Widener, Abby was a member of the Moot Court Honor Society, which successfully argued its case in Washington D.C. as part of the National Telecommunications and Technology Competition. Abby was also a Research Assistant during her years in law school, which involved extensive research into areas concerning loan approvals and authorization of foreign banks. Additionally, Abby enjoyed pro bono work with Pennsylvania’s Civil Law Clinic.
Abby was the 2022 recipient of the Commonwealth Court Historical Society – Judge Alexander F. Barbieri Award, an award that honors law students who demonstrate excellence in the field of Administrative Law. During her time at East Stroudsburg University, Abby ran cross country and track, and she was a recipient of the PSAC Women’s Track & Field Champion Scholar Award, which recognizes the student-athlete with the highest grade point average competing at the PSAC’s championship finals.
Abby is admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Middle District of Pennsylvania, and is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association.
