About me

Barbara worked her way through law school as a court-appointed public defender. After law school, Barbara became a volunteer AmeriCorps attorney with the Appalachian Ohio Domestic Violence Project advocating for and representing indigent victims of domestic violence in four counties through the Southeastern Ohio Legal Services field office in New Philadelphia, Ohio.

After her service with AmeriCorps, Barbara worked at a small boutique law firm in Sandusky, Ohio for four years before founding her own law firm in Cuyahoga Falls in 2003.
