I started Cramer Legal, LLC to help entrepreneurs, small businesses, and those struggling with the effects of the current economy. Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs, I experienced the many challenges and rewards of running a small business. So, I formed Cramer Legal, in part, to help other entrepreneurs on their journey.
My practice focuses on forming and advising small businesses, tax disputes, business and appellate litigation, and bankruptcy. I have had the pleasure of working with clients in the web development, high tech, manufacturing, packaging, education, professional services, retail, non-profit, and e-commerce industries, among others.
Prior to starting Cramer Legal, I worked as an associate in the litigation practice group of a large firm in downtown Cincinnati where I focused my practice on appellate litigation, government law, and business disputes.
Prior to this, I have had a lot of governmental and judicial experience. I spent a year clerking for a federal trial judge in Washington, DC, and two years with a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
I previously taught appellate practice as an adjunct assistant professor of law and I am admitted to practice law in Ohio and the District of Columbia, along with a number of federal courts.
I am a member of the Cincinnati Bar Association, the Ohio State Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the National Association of Tax Professionals, and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. I am also an active volunteer with the Cincinnati Volunteer Lawyers Program, where I help to provide pro bono legal services to low income members of the community.
