About Me

Warren and Young was started in Ashtabula, Ohio in 1921 by Theodore E. Warren, my grandfather.  The firm has been providing quality legal services to businesses and individuals in the northeast Ohio region ever since.


I joined Warren and Young in 1983, after spending two years at Baker & Hostetler, a national law firm headquartered in Cleveland.  My practice consists of helping businesses (both for profit and non-profit) accomplish their mission, and individuals accomplish their goals. 


I have successfully guided businesses from the formation stage, through expansion to ultimate sale.  I represent small companies that have less than five employees, as well as national companies with over 1,500 employees in 10 states.


I have also helped hundreds of families plan and manage their estates and business ventures.  I sit on numerous non-profit and philanthropic boards, and have formed and assisted dozens of charitable organizations.  I often speak at conferences or functions about business, charitable giving and non-profit management.  I have also held statewide office as President of the Ohio State Bar Foundation.


My goal is to provide quality legal services and personal attention to my clients, all at a reasonable cost.
