About me

I have had my own law practice, located in Coventry Township just south of Akron, since 1989.  Most of my practice involves estate planning, everything from a simple will to a revocable living trust, as well as the administration of estates and guardianships, and litigation in Probate Court.  I recently served as chairman of the Probate Law Section of the Akron Bar Association.  I am married to Kathy, and between us we have six children.  I am a member of Christ Community Chapel.  I am a former Springfield Township trustee, and former director of the Summit County Board of Elections.  I enjoy following the Cavs, Indians, Buckeyes, and Browns.
