He studied law and was admitted to the bar in Washington County, Pennsylvania in December 1783, in Westmoreland County and Fayette County in 1784, in Allegheny County on December 16, 1788, and in Bedford County in 1791.

He practiced extensively in those counties, and assisted in laying out the city of Pittsburgh in 1784. He was a member of the Pennsylvania Senate in 1797, and was elected as a Federalist to the [[14th United States Congress
