Our Secretaries & Receptionists

Like any professional business will tell you, a good firm cannot run efficiently without a great secretary. Our secretaries do the work that no one sees – the filings, the paperwork, the phone calls, the data entry – that is vital to how we run our businesses.

Patti Bekavac

Patti is Dan Sr.'s wife and Dan Jr.'s mother; but she truly is much more than the boss's wife.  In 2020, Dan and Patti are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary after being high school sweethearts at Clairton High. She lives in Elizabeth Township with Dan.

Linda Bernardo

Linda is assisting with clerical duties at our Clairton location. Her husband, Ralph, has been one of drivers for years. They reside in Jefferson Hills.
