    28 years, 200 cases

As an attorney and mediator approaching three decades of trial experience, I am pragmatic and efficient in solving my clients' problems.  I  use a "team" approach to litigation and personally handle your case - no associates being trained on your dime.  I am a good business and executive consultant and coach for both start-ups and established business people.  I practice extensively in rural Ohio and represent farmers, landowners, and small business people.

Professional and top notch
Mike handled a personal injury case for me a few years back and did an excellent job, handled the case with the best possible outcome. I would also recommend Mike for any firearms cases; he's quite knowledgeable and is one of the nation's premier Second Amendment attorneys.

Hands down one of the best attorneys I've ever hired. Not only won the case but got my gun back.
