I am a native of SE Ohio where I grew up on a farm. At a young age I learned the value of hard work, creative problem solving, and positive relationships.
I have over 20 years of government/political experience combinded with a career in the US Army Reserve and in the legal profession.
I have been married to my wife for 15 years and have two wonderful children. I am active in my community and church.
I concentrate my practice in the areas of real estate law, land use/zoning law, local and state government relations, and economic development throughout Ohio.
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

Public reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
