Attorney Messer was working as a probation officer when she realized her dream of becoming a lawyer. She felt her true calling was to counsel and advocate. In law school, she travelled abroad to Italy to study the European legal system and the International Sale of Goods (CISG in Comparative Perspective). She also trained under Jurist Chief Judge Anthony Scirica of the Third Circuit while studying comparative constitutional law and international business transactions. She graduated earning concentrations in both International Law and Business Transactions. In the years since law school, she has gained over a decade of working experience in federal and state civil litigation.

Attorney Messer does not believe it is hard to become a lawyer and represent someone; but, becoming a good lawyer takes years of dedication and the commitment to go the extra mile to meet the needs of each individual client. She is proud to be part of like-minded attorneys at Weinman and Associates.
