About Me

Trial Lawyer since 1978. My focus has been Criminal Defense and Wrongful Death and Personal Injury.

My office is located just west of the Hamilton County Court House. I practice in all Ohio and Federal Courts.

I handle all criminal cases as well as appeals.

I am honest, hardworking and my client's best interests are always first.

I am available 24/7 and am happy to provide a free consultation.

My fees are dependent upon the complexity of the matter. Contingent fees are available for injury matters.

I am listed in Best Lawyers in America, Who's Who in American Law, and top peer review rated AV Martindale Hubbell.

I have been married for 30 years, and have raised 3 great sons.

I am also an Ohio Magistrate and preside over Mayor's Courts.

My law office is available to handle most legal matters.

Your case is important to me.
