About me

I am a life-long resident of Butler County, Ohio.  I graduated from Middletown High School (Class of 1980) and Miami University (Class of 1984).


After my graduation from the University of Kentucky College of Law in December 1987, I returned to my hometown.


I have practiced law in Trenton, Ohio, since being sworn in as an attorney in May 1988.


I was employed as a part-time Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Butler County from 1990 to 1997, allthewhile continuing with my private practice in Trenton.


I am a member of the Butler County Bar Association and have served on the board as the President in years past.  I am also a member of the Ohio State Bar Association.
