I joined The Gertsburg Law Firm after 13 years as a litigator at Gallagher Sharp. Before becoming an attorney, I served as a financial manager for a small business after earning my MBA. I have represented a diverse array of clients and successfully litigated matters ranging from small business disputes to class actions. My extensive legal and business background results in a proactive approach to law – finding cost-effective solutions rather than spending valuable resources to win at all costs. My practice includes litigation, business advising, nonprofit consulting and probate.
Beyond the practice of law, I ammarried and the proud father of two active children. I dedicate time to several nonprofit organizations including serving on the Board of Directors of Open Doors Academy and legal advisor for Third World Books. I have played hockey my entire life, currently coacheing youth hockey in Cleveland Heights and I still takes to the ice competitively myself.
