About Me

I am originally from Toledo, Ohio.  Born and raised in the Toledo area, I attended undergraduate school at Lourdes College in Sylvania.  After Lourdes I attended the University of Toledo College of Law.  While attending UT, I participated in the Criminal Law Practice program.  This is where a student will intern in a local prosecutor's office.  I worked in the Bowling Green Prosecutor's office for a semester.  This has given me a greater understanding of the criminal justice system, and prepared me for criminal defense work.  Additionally, as a member of the Law Review while at law school, I was the assistant managaing editor. Wanting to stay in the Toledo area, I opened my practice in Sylvania, Ohio in 2008. 


 


In 2013 I joined the law firm of Handwork & Kerscher, LLP.  We practice in real estate, taxation, probate, estate planning, commercial litigation, business law, domestic relations, and criminal.
