About me

Thank you for viewing my profile. The information will provide insight into my history and qualifications as a trial attorney. I consider representing those facing life altering criminal charges a privilege, as such I strive to achieve the best outcome for my clients. The focus of my practice is criminal defense in the Northeast Ohio area.  Additionally, I am licensed to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office and assist those seeking to protect their intellectual property rights.  I welcome the chance to discuss your case, provide you answers as to what occurred, and the legal remedies available.
