Ron has acted as Bond Counsel to school districts, specialized schools, water and sewer authorities, a turnpike commission, industrial and commercial development authorities, colleges, universities, retirement communities, counties, cities, boroughs and townships with their bond financings. He has also served both governmental and nonprofit entities as their regular counsel giving him a unique perspective into the business, functions and needs of those entities.
