About me

I was born in Barberton, OH in 1958, graduated from the University of Akron School of Law, and have been licensed to practice law in Ohio since 1985. I have been an officer of Leiby Hanna Rasnick Towne Evanchan Palmisano & Hobson, LLC since 1995 and have devoted my practice to representing injured individuals throughout my career. For over 30 years I have been dedicated to handling complex damage cases, including catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases arising from automobile accidents, truck accidents, work place accidents, defective products and medical negligence. I hold the highest legal, professional, and empathetic standards in my work with clients. If you are faced with an unfortunate and traumatic personal injury, wrongful death, or other catastrophic damage case you will want to be able to depend on your attorney to provide the most thorough legal attention with full respect for the sensitive nature of the circumstances.

I have been selected to Ohio Super Lawyers 2009-Present. I am a member of the Ohio Association for Justice, the American Association for Justice, the Summit County Association for Justice, the Stark County Association for Justice,  the Ohio State Bar Association and the Akron Bar Association.
