About me

I started my own practice in 1987 after serving four years as an attorney in the U.S. Army JAG Corps and a one year stint with the Rudnick and Wolfe Law Firm (now DLA Piper) in Chicago. I primarily practice Employment Law, Employment Discrimination, Wrongful Discharge, and Defamation, in both State and Federal Courts. I serve Toledo and the surrounding areas ranging from Fulton and Williams Counties to Sandusky, Marion, and Lima.
