I am dual certified as an Elder Law Attorney by the National Elder Law Foundation, accredited by the American Bar Association, and as a Specialist in Elder Law by the Ohio State Bar Association. I am one of eighteen attorneys with this dual certification. I devote my practice to those issues uniquely affecting the elderly, the disabled and their families.
Having been raised by a parent with early onset Parkinson's Disease, and having witnessed a grandparent spend over sixteen years in a nursing facility suffering from Alzheimer's, I gravitated early in my career towards the practice of elder and disability law. I established my Law Firm after leaving the Ohio Appellate Court with the goal of assisting those in need navigate the maze of planning options to obtain optimal care while maximizing available resources.
My Firm is now comprised of five attorneys who collectively have over fifty years experience working exclusively in the fields of elder law and estate planning. Each attorney brings his or her own experience and talents to the practice. For instance, Attorney Claudia Rose Brown holds a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Case Western Reserve and has served as case worker for the Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging. Attorney Julie Falter is a former Family Service Director for the Alzheimer's Association. Kathy Cline, LSW, GCM, is a Certified Elder Care Coordinator for our Life Care Planning Services. All of the attorneys in the Firm are accredited by the VA to prepare, present and prosecute claims for veteran’s benefits.
I was the contributing Editor to the Elder Law Handbook published by the Ohio State Bar Association, both the 4th and 5th editions, having authored the Chapter on Medicaid. I am a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, the Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Section of the Ohio State Bar Association, and sit on the Elder Law Committee for the Ohio State Bar Association, where I am the Chair for the State Hearings and Administrative Appeal Sub-Committee. I also am a Board Member of the Ohio Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.
I regularly volunteer as a speaker for the Alzheimer's Association, and am a frequent lecturer to legal, financial, health and tax professionals.
I am an honors graduate of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, and John Carroll University. Prior to entering private practice, I served for three years as a staff attorney for the State of Ohio Court of Appeals.
