About me

I have been selected to the Ohio Super Lawyers Rising Stars list numerous times. I became a Superlawyer in 2016.  I was selected by the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys to receive the prestigious Top 10 Attorney Award under the age of 40. I was also selected to be in an elite group: The National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40. I have earned the Client Satisfaction Award three years in a row.  These are only a few of the awards that I have earned.


 


I am known in the community and am a member of many organizations.


 


A native of Cincinnati, I attended McNicholas High School and Xavier University.  I am a 2004 graduate of the University of Dayton School of Law and currently sit on the Alumni Board as a Trustee. I am a licensed attorney in Ohio and in federal court in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.


I concentrate my practice in Family Law litigation in Ohio, focusing in Hamilton County, Warren County, and Clermont County.
