Before joining the Temple faculty, he was an expert on disability law with the Civil Rights Division, U.S. Department of Justice. For several years, he chaired the National Catholic Partnership on Disability, established four decades ago to implement the 1978 Pastoral Statement on People with Disabilities of the U.S. Catholic bishops.
