I am an active participant and volunteer Cleveland Metro Bar Association's 3R's Program- Rights, Responsibilities and Realities which is a program whereby members of the legal community personally connect with high school students to address fundamental issues facing the students and the City of Cleveland. The 3R's Program calls upon teams of volunteers to go to high school social studies classes to work with small groups of students in the Cleveland School District.
I also participated in the Cleveland Homeless Legal Assistance Program which focussed on eliminating the financial burden of legal fees for individuals in homeless situations.
I act as an arbitrator in Cuahoga County and have lectured at conintuing legal education seminars on various topics such as "Insurance Law", "How to be a Successful Negotiator", "The Art of Settlement" and "How to Start Your Own Law Firm".
