Bartash is the managing partner of the Delaware County office; Ronald was the first attorney in the firm to base his practice outside of the Philadelphia office, and he, thus, founded our first branch office.

Just to the south of the city, I-95 intersects with I-295 and indirectly (via I-295) with the New Jersey Turnpike, facilitating connections with Southern New Jersey. The recently reconstructed Wilmington Station provides mass transit links to Philadelphia via the Wilmington / Newark SEPTA Regional Rail line and to Washington and Baltimore to the southwest and Philadelphia, New York and Boston to the northeast via the Northeast Corridor of Amtrak's national rail network.
Given the state of Delaware's advantageous pro-business tax laws and Wilmington's status as the largest city within the state, many large credit companies have their headquarters in the city; additionally, many retail banking and insurance companies are represented in Wilmington - making the city a national hub for financial activity. The office is staffed by Michael J. Follett who practices with the firm's General Liability department; he focuses his practice on premises liability, products liability, construction liability and insurance defense.
