About Me

I enjoy being in the courtroom and representing clients in litigation matters; including personal injury, domestic relations, criminal law and business disputes.  I am also a trained mediator and collaboratively trained attorney who can assist clients in appropriate cases to find common ground to resolve disputes outside of the courtroom.  In addition, I represent several governmental entities such as the Villages of Pioneer, Edon and Fayette and am a former County Prosecuting Attorney.
