About Me

     After graduating from Case Western Reserve University with a degree in Psychology, I spent a year performing stand-up comedy.  After successfully defending myself against a speeding ticket, I decided to go to law school at The Ohio State University College of Law.  In 1992, when I still didn't have my own late night talk show, I dedicated myself to my legal career.

     Since then I have represented thousands of clients in nearly every aspect of law.  I take a personal and sincere interest in every case I handle and I strive to provide quality service at affordable fees.

     I provide a free no-obligation in office initial consultation.  Call today to let my 20 years of experience work for you.
