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.

Richard D Linderman

  • Principal


My involvement in the community has been through many non-profit organizations, my church, and educational pursuits. I have been a board member of numerous business companies and charitable organizations, such as the TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce, Building Industries Exchange, Pottstown High School Alumni Executive Committee, and many more.

Having been intimately involved in church activities for 35 years, I have been on the finance and property committee for 15 years, having served as its chairman for 3 years.

Teaching is a personal passion. I taught civil and criminal law at Penn State University (Berks Campus) from 1988-1998 and have been teaching at the Montgomery County Community College, West Campus, for over five years. My courses include criminal law, evidence and trials. Helping others to become helpers themselves is my biggest challenge and satisfaction. It is what has led me to the law, right from the beginning.
