About me

I am an attorney who will fight for your rights and for the outcome you desire.   I have experience in not only drafting legal arguments, but also in litigation.   I have been to the Appellate Court on numerous occasions when we feel justice has not been granted to us.   

I have litigated cases in personal injury, car accidents, divorce, trespass, criminal law, traffic issues, and school liability.   I have a BA from Baldwin Wallace College, an MA from Kent State University and a JD from the Cleveland Marshall Law School of Cleveland State.  

Please contact my office for a free consultation to discuss your issue.   I look forward to meeting you.
