About Me

 


Having a competent defense attorney involved in your case as early as possible can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. As a former Assistant Prosecutor in Lake County Ohio, I have experience with the strategies used by prosecutors to pursue their cases. As a member of the Ohio Bar Association, Lake County Bar Association and a member of the Board of Directors of the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, I take my profession seriously and constantly stay up to date with the latest case law and trial strategies. I can put my skills and experience to work for you.


 


I would be happy to meet with you to discuss the details of your case. There is no commitment on your part, and my initial consultation is always free. Feel free to call my office at (440) 241-4237 and speak with me directly to set up an appointment.
