5
Practice areas
  1. Estate planning
    15%
    This is my primary practice focus and I love it.

    15 years

  2. Probate
    15%
    I worked for the local probate court for over five years as its Court Administrator, and have done probate since my admission to the Bar in 2001.

    23 years

  3. Contracts and agreements
    10%
    I enjoy transactional law, such as contracts and agreements and the "dry" side of law.

    23 years

  4. Elder law
    10%
    Elder law, estate planning, powers of attorney, advanced directives, and wills/trusts/probate all go hand in hand in my practice.

    15 years

  5. Trusts
    10%
    Elder law, estate planning, powers of attorney, advanced directives, and wills/trusts/probate all go hand in hand in my practice.

    15 years

  6. Wills and living wills
    10%
    Elder law, estate planning, powers of attorney, advanced directives (healthcare power of attorney and living will) and wills/trusts/probate all go hand in hand in my practice.

    15 years

  7. Landlord or tenant
    7%
    I represents many landlord clients, and will assist with not only the front end of renting (application and lease) but also the back end of eviction and collection.

    23 years

  8. Business
    5%
    I focus my practice on LLC formation and operating agreements; I do not do much with S or C Corporation formation.

  9. Debt collection
    5%
    I do quite a bit of debt collection, and will tell you straight whether it is worth trying to collect, based on the debtor information you provide me. It doesn't make sense to throw good money after bad if the debtor is very unlikely to ever pay.

    23 years

  10. Guardianship

    I have represented guardians and wards, and my time spent working for the probate court exponentially enhanced my understanding of guardianship.

    Primarily stableman's liens and horse boarding.

    10 years

  14. State, local, and municipal law
    1%
    I represented townships and other local authorities for several years while working for the prosecutor's office; I also represented the City of Wooster performing income tax collections for many years.

    18 years

I do my best to treat my clients the way I want to be treated when I am someone's client, customer, or patient. I expect kindness, honesty, compassion, and thoroughness, with unflinching toughness when needed. I want my doctor to speak to me in terms I understand, and to trust that my car mechanic isn't ripping me off. My clients should feel entitled to clear communication, sincerity, and professional service. I strive for my clients to feel comfortable and well taken care of, while receiving a good price for quality legal services.
