Personal Background

Tiffany grew up in Millville, a small town in Central Pennsylvania which still has one flashing red-light at the square.  Her grandfather, Clyde, started the family-owned auto parts business out of the trunk of his car after completing his service in the U.S. Navy during World War II.  Over time, her father took over the business where she worked during high school and college, learning business basics and the value of a strong work ethic. Tiffany’s mother was a gifted Spanish teacher who traveled internationally and was dedicated to learning other cultures and sharing that knowledge with others.

Strong work ethic, dedication to clients, and achieving excellence are values that have been instilled in Tiffany from a young age, thanks to her parents and the small community she grew up in. Combined with her 25+ years of legal experience, she brings a personal connection to her cases while zealously advocating for the best interest of her clients.

Tiffany relocated to Wilmington, DE area in 1995 to attend law school and became a Chester County resident in 2003.  She and her husband live in Chadds Ford with their 2 children who attend college, their 2 cats, and 2 dogs.  She is an animal lover and has volunteered at local facilities and has adopted through local rescue agencies.  Tiffany enjoys trail running, visiting the Delaware beaches, playing the guitar, and eating out at local restaurants.
