I have been continuously practicing law in Ohio for over 28 years.  Durinig my career, I have essentially practiced in most areas of the law. In the past 10 years I have focused on business law, criminal defense, OVI/DUI/DWI, personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death. I have recovered large awards for my clients in my years of practice from auto injury accidents, medical neglect, other personal injuries and wrongful death. I have a reputation as being honest, fair, very diligent and aggressive.  I also normally work very late into the evening and am always reasonably available to my clients.

upfront and honest
Two things you cant say about most attorneys is they are upfront and honest. Jeff is very good at what he does and doesn't give you the run around.
