Ed’s ties to Philadelphia began with schooling and have been cemented over the years with participation in various local institutions and the friendships made along the way. After a half dozen years at the School of the Holy Child in Rosemont, he attended and graduated from The Haverford School. His educational journey went on from out of town, Harvard College, back to Philadelphia, the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and away again, a judicial clerkship in Washington. He has since lived on the Main Line and worked in Center City. His years of practice in the trust and estate area are complemented by service as a mutual fund independent trustee. He is a biographee in Who’s Who in America.
