Henry T. Zale
I was born and raised in Shenandoah, Schuylkill County, in the heart of the hard coal region of Pennsylvania, the grandson of a coal miner and the son of a teacher and school administrator. However, since 1976, my family and I have made Pottstown and the surrounding tri-county area our home.
A lawyer has the responsibility and privilege of serving as a representative of clients, an officer of the legal system, and a public citizen. As a lawyer with O'Donnell, Weiss & Mattei, P.C., as well as a resident of and practicing attorney in the Pottstown tri-county area, I endeavor to satisfy and exercise that responsibility and privilege by not only providing competent legal representation but also being involved in various community activities.
