About Me

After over five years of practicing personal injury law in my hometown of Cleveland, I relocated to Portsmouth, Ohio, where I have established my own law practice that serves clients in Ohio and Kentucky. 

I have tried several important cases to juries, including cases that have ranged from serious personal injury to aggravated murder. 


I enjoy rowing, rock climbing, writing and running.  I live in Portsmouth with my wonderful wife, Maddie, and my newborn daughter, Maura.
