Luke is a trial attorney in the Litigation and Health Care groups. In his career, Luke has already represented clients in more than 100 cases throughout Pennsylvania in both state and federal court. He prides himself on applying strategic litigation planning and methodical case preparation to obtain favorable outcomes for his clients. Luke is experienced in all stages of litigation from resolving disputes prior to the filing of a lawsuit through taking cases to trial and the appeal process. He is also adept at resolving matters through confidential mediations and arbitrations when advantageous to the client’s goals in any particular case.

Luke devotes a substantial portion of this practice to defending doctors, hospitals and other health care professionals against medical malpractice claims. While collaborating with some of the most highly respected medical experts in the country, Luke has developed a keen understanding of the medicine underlying malpractice claims in a variety of specialties, including:

  • Obstetrics and gynecology
  • Neurosurgery
  • Cardiovascular and thoracic surgery
  • General surgery
  • Cardiology
  • Neurology
  • Emergency medicine
  • Primary care medicine

In addition to medical malpractice litigation, Luke has been involved in products liability litigation, class actions, regulatory prosecutions and various personal injury matters in the health care sector.

Luke also maintains a wide-ranging commercial litigation practice.  As a commercial litigator, he frequently represents clients in contract and business disputes, including those involving governmental entities, and provides guidance to clients regarding potential claims or liabilities. In addition to pursuing and defending actions in Pennsylvania, Luke has been granted special admissions to practice in other states where necessary to litigate cases on behalf of clients. In handling complex litigation, Luke has experience conducting multistate and transnational discovery as well as coordinating electronic discovery.

Before going into private practice, Luke honed his craft working for judges in the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. By working for both state and federal judges, Luke gained first-hand experience in a wide array of matters including employment and labor disputes, municipal claims, state regulatory prosecutions, land use litigation and constitutional law challenges at both the trial and appellate level.

At Penn State University Dickinson School of Law, he was a member of the school’s national trial competition team and an associate editor of the Penn State Law Review. Luke also participated in a medical-legal colloquium in conjunction with the Milton S. Hershey School of Medicine.  

A Lancaster County native, Luke lives just outside Lancaster with his wife, Ashley, and their two young daughters. 

Some of Luke’s successful representative cases in his practice:


  • Defense verdict in a case involving alleged malpractice in performing a da Vinci robot-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy. The litigation also included products liability claims against the manufacturer of the robotic surgical platform.
  • Defense verdict in a medical malpractice case involving alleged delayed diagnosis of bacterial meningitis in an infant resulting the permanent brain damage.
  • Defense verdict in a wrongful death suit involving the alleged delayed diagnosis of leukemia in a young girl. The high exposure matter included a series of cross-claims and adversarial settling defendants. 
  • Granted appeal by Pennsylvania Superior Court and reversal obtained in a matter involving a trial court decision to strike a non pros judgment. The court decision dismissed this litigation prior to the parties conducting any discovery.
  • Defense verdict in a medical malpractice case involving alleged failure to diagnosis spinal compression resulting in paralysis.
