Yardley attorney Scott Fegley’s debut novel, “The Meaning of Home,” is now available on Amazon in paperback and ebook versions

Yardley attorney Scott Fegley’s debut novel, “The Meaning of Home,” is now available on Amazon in paperback and ebook versions.

https://www.amazon.com/Meaning-Home-Scott-I…/dp/1731374437

Publication of the novel has been bittersweet in that Scott’s wife, Carolyn, passed away on November 11, 2018, just over a week ago. She did not get to read the final version or see the book in print, but of an earlier draft she told Scott, “I love it” – three words he will always cherish.

Heartwarming, humorous, and thought-provoking, “The Meaning of Home” takes the reader through the life journey of Charlie, a rescue dog, part Pomeranian and part fox, in his quest for the peace of a permanent home. He survives harsh and dangerous living conditions – from domestic violence to a homeless camp, where Charlie touches the residents’ lives and gives them his abundant comfort, friendship and hope. When the camp is forced to disperse, Charlie is yet again uprooted and faced with finding new shelter.

“The Meaning Of Home” expresses the fundamental hope that we can always get back up again no matter how many times we may have fallen. It reminds us that a home is not defined by the structure, but the spirit within.

High Swartz, a law firm located in the Greater Philadelphia Area, proudly sponsors a local Montgomery County organization—Montgomery Child Advocacy Project (MCAP).

On Saturday, November, 17, 2018, MCAP held its’ 8th annual Salute to Heroes Dinner Dance & Silent Auction, which honored Sarah Klein, the first known gymnast victim of former Olympics Women’s Gymnastics Team doctor Larry Nassar.

MCAP fights to end and prevent child abuse and neglect in Montgomery County through legal services, advocacy, and education. Volunteer attorneys, called “MCAPs”, represent children and are trained by the organization to meet with them, investigate their case, explain the process, and so much more, but most importantly, making sure their voices are heard.

One of these attorneys is our very own, Melissa Boyd, who has been a child advocate for MCAP since 2011 and currently serves on the MCAP Board of Directors after her 2015 nomination.

Boyd is a family law attorney in our Norristown, PA office that focus on multiple areas of practice within family law, but has dedicated much of her professional career to preserving the rights of children and their families.
