About me

My first career was in municipal management, including stops with the Michigan Municipal League and the City of Oakwood Ohio before serving as Manager of Springboro, Ohio.  I decided to go back to Law School at that point and graduated Magna Cum Laude.  I have practiced in Real Estate and Local Government law for 25 years.  I lecture frequently on related topics.  I am proud to have been selected by my peers as one of the Best Lawyers in America for the past 10 years as well as being named an Ohio Super Lawyer.
