Realtors, lawyers wrap up first year at shared location in Mount Carmel
MOUNT CARMEL - Realty World Molesevich and Associates and the law offices of Wiest, Muolo, Noon, Swinehart and Bathgate will mark their one-year anniversary Friday, Aug. 1, together at their shared location at 18 E. Fifth St.
The law firm, initially established in 1966 by Roger V. Wiest, with its primary offices being in Sunbury, had a branch office in Mount Carmel from 1981 to 1985.
Realty World Molesevich and Associates, established in 2007 by Dennis Molesevich Jr., was originally located in The Plaza at Coal Township. In 2013, Molesevich moved his team to the new location at the corner of Fifth and Oak streets. The building has served many purposes over the years and required several months of renovation to make a modern and professional office.
Along with the new address, Molesevich, broker of records, and Realtors Peggy Delorso, Lynn Kufta and Jana Horn, gained some new friends with the law office.
The Realtors have a combined 40 years of experience in real estate sales. Their goal is to make their clients' dreams of home ownership an easy and quick experience.
As the broker, Molesevich has worked to develop a professional office that puts the well-being of the community first, and looks forward to the revitalization of the entire region. The Realty World team is focused on positive change for local communities and to "bring the area back," he said.
When Robert J. Muolo joined Wiest in his law firm in 1981, the pair opened an office in Mount Carmel and maintained it for four years. After its closing, the firm maintained a presence in the Mount Carmel area, but worked primarily out of Sunbury.
Since then, the law firm has gone through several transitions, adding four new partners. Today, the partnership consists of five partners and the founding member, Wiest, who was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar in 1965. In addition to practicing law, he has been an integral part in the evolution of First National Trust Bank, Second and Oak streets in Mount Carmel and 400 Market St. in Sunbury, into what is now Susquehanna Bank. Wiest recently retired from the board of directors of Susquehanna Bank.
Muolo has represented at varying times the borough of Kulpmont, Mount Carmel Township and the Kulpmont-Marion Heights Joint Municipal Authority. Muolo's areas of practice include negligence, real estate and business law.
David Noon and William Swinehart joined the firm in the late 1980s. Noon joined after his previous position as assistant district attorney under then-District Attorney Robert Sacavage. Noon's practice concentrates on criminal and domestic law.
Swinehart joined the firm after serving as a law clerk in Mercer County. His area of practice includes banking, estate planning and social security disability.
In 2001, Wiest's son, Roger V. Wiest II, joined the firm. His area of law practice includes real estate, domestic and criminal law.
It was 2004 when James Bathgate joined the firm. He maintains a generalized civil practice with emphasis on municipal zoning and negligence law. Bathgate is a U.S. Navy veteran and a Penn State graduate.
