Tiffany is a full-time clinical law professor and experienced litigator with over 16 years of courtroom experience. She is committed to ensuring a court system that centers on hearing all voices relevant to each court matter. Tiffany has the combination of deep system experience in both practice and policy, as well as compassion and empathy that will make her an outstanding jurist in Allegheny County.
Over time, Tiffany understood that her work in the courtroom was not enough to see the reforms she wished for in the juvenile and criminal legal systems. As a result, she began to engage in policy and advocacy work outside of her individual casework. She sits at many policy tables – both locally, statewide, and nationally related to juvenile court reform.
Tiffany is now ready to transition to a new way to serve: as a judge on the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas. She will bring with her a wealth of courtroom and policy experience. She understands the importance of listening to all perspectives and coming to a decision that is thoughtful, right , and just.
