About Me

EFFECTIVE, CREATIVE AND CARING.  Dennis has been a trial lawyer since he began practicing law in 2001.  His practice focuses solely on Domestic Relations matters. Dennis has extensive trial experience and has the reputation for being an aggressive advocate who seeks to protect his clients’ legal and financial interests.  From Dennis’ experience, he has learned how to guide his clients through the stressful time of life that divorce brings.  Dennis has been recognized by his peers as one of the top young lawyers in Ohio.  He has been listed in Ohio Super Lawyers magazine as an Ohio Super Lawyer Rising Star in 2005, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 which recognizes Ohio’s top young lawyers.  Dennis has also been selected by The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 under 40 in Ohio which is by invitation only and is extended exclusively to individuals who exemplify superior qualifications and leadership as a trial lawyer. While Dennis has earned recognition as one of Ohio’s top lawyers, what sets him apart from other lawyers is his genuine concern for those who suffer the pain of divorce and he strives to make a difference in the individuals he represents.
