About me

I have been an insurance defense attorney for the majority of my time as a lawyer. Most recently, I worked for nine years at a large insurance company defending its policyholders in auto accicent, slip & fall, homeowner's, and general commercial liability cases. I am now accepting all types of personal injury cases on the plaintiff's side. If you have been injured, I would like to help.

I am also accepting family law cases, including divorce, shared parenting issues, child support issues, domestic violence, and other domestic matters.

I have been a litigator for the majority of my time as an attorney. I am available to discuss any general litigation needs, as well as other general practice work.

I am licensed in all state and federal courts in Ohio and West Virginia. I primarily practice now in the northern panhandle or West Virginia and surrounding area. In the past, I handled cases throughout all of northern West Virginia down to Parkersburg and over to Clarksburg.

Give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to helping you.
