Luke is a trial attorney in the Litigation and Health Care groups. In his career, Luke has represented clients in numerous cases throughout Pennsylvania in both state and federal courts. He prides himself on applying methodical case preparation and strategic litigation planning to obtain favorable outcomes for his clients. Luke is experienced in all stages of litigation from addressing disputes prior to the filing of a lawsuit through presenting the case to a jury at trial and on appeal. He is also adept at resolving matters through alternative dispute resolution, including confidential mediations and arbitrations when advantageous to the client 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 experience defending malpractice claims in a wide variety of specialties: obstetrics and gynecology, neurosurgery, pediatrics, cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, general surgery, neurology, radiology, oncology, dermatology, urology, anesthesiology, neonatology, infectious disease, emergency medicine, hospital medicine, pathology, nursing care, and primary care medicine.

In addition to defending medical malpractice cases, Luke has defended product liability cases, class actions, regulatory prosecutions and various personal injury matters in the health care sector.  He also supports hospital clients in conducting peer review investigations and medical board adjudications.

Luke maintains an active commercial litigation practice in addition to his medical malpractice docket. He frequently represents clients in commercial cases involving contract and business disputes, including those against governmental entities, and provides guidance to clients regarding potential claims or liabilities. In addition to pursuing and defending actions in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, 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 multi-state and transnational discovery as well as coordinating electronic discovery.

Luke was recently recognized for his experience by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and received an appointment to its Committee on the Rules of Evidence.  The committee provides recommendations to the court regarding evidence matters by monitoring the application of rules and developments in case law as well as identifying areas in which rules of evidence should be revised or clarified. The committee typically consists of a small number of judges and attorneys throughout the state.

Luke also regularly engages in pro bono work.  For example, as part of a project with the Pennsylvania Immigration Resource Center and the Lancaster Bar Association, Luke filed a pro bono suit against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and its related agencies seeking protected immigration status and employment authorization for a victim of domestic violence. Ultimately, to resolve the matter, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services awarded Luke’s client deferred action status, issued her an employment authorization and placed her on a pathway to citizenship.

Before going into private practice, Luke trained under a series of judges, including in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the Pennsylvania Commonwealth 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 levels.

At Penn State University Dickinson School of Law, he was a member of the schools 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.
