Tasha is a member of Barley Snyder’s Litigation, Health Care and Higher Education groups, concentrating her practice in the areas of civil litigation and medical malpractice.

In her general civil litigation practice, Tasha uses her strong advocacy, problem-solving and leadership skills to effectively and efficiently assist businesses, institutions and individuals in navigating the litigation process. In particular, Tasha handles matters related to employment discrimination, Title IX, civil rights, breach of contract, and landlord/tenant issues.

As a member of the firm’s Health Care Industry Group, Tasha also focuses her practice on the defense of health care facilities and physicians in medical malpractice litigation. Tasha handles a wide range of tasks including taking depositions, preparing defensive pleadings, conducting research for all stages of litigation, and counseling clients prior to testifying in court.

As a member of the firm’s Higher Education Industry Group, Tasha provides counseling for administrators, faculty, and staff regarding student rights and discipline issues arising under a host of federal and state laws including the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act. She has assisted colleges and universities in drafting and implementing ADA-compliant policies and procedures to accommodate students with disabilities. Tasha has also represented colleges and universities in a diverse array of litigation matters.

Tasha continues a longtime firm tradition of former Barley Snyder summer associates returning to the firm. Before joining Barley Snyder, Tasha worked as an intern with the Lancaster County District Attorney’s office and Villanova Law’s Institute to Address Commercial Sexual Exploitation (CSE Institute). She previously worked in Lancaster City as a Finance/Human Resources director for six small businesses, as an Executive Director of a non-profit working alongside women affected by homelessness, and as a refugee resettlement caseworker. She relates to a broad spectrum of people and is comfortable in diverse settings.

A Lancaster native with Amish roots, Tasha has a passion for public service and social justice. She enjoys volunteering her time to represent pro bono those in need of legal services. Her pro bono work involves cases seeking U Visa immigration relief and defending prisoners’ rights. Tasha has volunteered in her hometown with various non-profit organizations including Advoz, Lancaster County Conservancy, Night to Shine, and Church World Services. She is also a former volunteer of The Mix and Clare House. In her spare time, Tasha enjoys anything outdoors, running, and thrift shopping at Goodwill.
