About me

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio.  I earned a B.S. at the University of Cincinnati and I earned my J.D. at Case Western here in Cleveland.  My focus and my passion is disability litigation.


My primary work is on cases involving litigation before the Social Security Administration.  My law firm can help people with the initial filing all the way through Federal Court litigation.


Since early 2015 I have been learning about Deaf culture and the discrimination of Deaf people.  I am eagerly learning American Sign Language.  I have some experience working with apartment complexes that have refused to install visual fire alarms and I also have experience with making sure Deaf people are provided sign language interpreters when necessary in accordance with Title III of the American with Disabilities Act. 


If you have a question, just call.  Please feel free to email or Facebook me as well. 


Thank you for reading!
