Please see the Fox43 News interview with Rachel Yonkunas featuring Thomas McCabe, Esquire from OWM Law, regarding landlord tenant laws and landlords’ and tenants’ rights during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, as many people continue to work from home and practice social distancing, you may finally have time to have your Will, Power of Attorney, and Advanced Directive completed. You may also want an attorney to review your Will and Powers of Attorney if you already have such documents. OWM Law is offering free initial estate planning phone conferences. To schedule your phone conference, please contact our office at 610-323-2800 or you may schedule via email by contacting Melanie at [email protected]. We look forward to working with you.

  • Principal


Although born in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, I was raised in Pottstown, Montgomery and Chester Counties, where I attended Pottstown Schools and graduated from The Hill School, Pottstown, PA, with the class of 1961.

The entire OWM staff is encouraged to be civic minded and to participate and support the community with its many projects and activities for the enhancement of the tri-county area and the greater community at large.

We are dedicated and determined to maintain a high level of professional competence and community involvement. As a cohesive member of the professional community, OWM is privileged to serve the many individual, non-profit, corporate and institutional clients who have sought our assistance for more than fifty (50) years. OWM legal services range from estate and family matters to corporate, banking, municipal, real estate and transactional matters generally.
