Mr. Driscoll came to the firm after serving as assistant chief of the Municipal Court Unit of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, the unit responsible for litigating the most felony preliminary hearings and misdemeanor trials in the city. There, he supervised some forty assistant district attorneys and organized and conducted training programs for assistant district attorneys and legal interns. Prior to that, he served as assistant chief in the Trial Division, conducting similar training and supervising approximately fifty assistant district attorneys in prosecuting felony waiver and jury trials.

He also brings the valuable perspective of having worked in law enforcement as a police officer. He is conversational in the Spanish language.
