About me

I have focused my practice on helping those who have been seriously injured, and am the immediate past President of the Ohio Association for Justice. This is the only statewide legal organization dedicated to helping advance the causes of injured people in the Ohio General Assembly and in the Ohio Supreme Court.


When I am not practicing law, i enjoy spending time outdoors with my family. I am an avid runner, biker and hiker. My love for these activities has led me around the country to participate in long-distance events such as charity relays, marathons, and triathlons. So I have a personal passion for road-sharing by motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.


I am also active in my local community, serving or having served as a YMCA Board Member (and Past President), as a Board Member for the Defiance Area General Health District, and a Scout leader and District Chair for the Boy Scouts of America.


It would be my privilege to assist with your civil claim.
