About me

Mike has achieved winning outcomes for criminal, civil and domestic relations clients in statewide courts, the Second District Court of Appeals and the Ohio Supreme Court. Mike brings a practical, outcome-driven approach to serve his clients’ interests described as “a personal connection like no other lawyer” and an “aggressive representation with personal service”. Injured victims have recovered well over $1 million through Mike’s representation in auto accident; dog bite; product liability and discrimination claims. He has successfully litigated a variety of complex business cases, ranging from partnership disputes to successfully defending a non-compete agreement. Some of his biggest wins, though, have come by representing people at their most challenging moments, such as when he was successfully had a criminal conviction reversed by the Ohio Supreme Court in just his second year of practice.  Mike can formulate the right game plan to best fit his individual and unique clients in an efficient manner. However, if litigation is necessary, he draws on his experience in the courtroom to produce outcomes worthy of his clients’ trust.  Mike uses his legal experience in the community, as well. He is the legal counsel for homeowner associations, condominium owner associations, and housing cooperatives.  He teaches the real estate law classes for those seeking their real estate license through the Dayton Area Board of Realtors and he is an adjunct professor of business law through Sinclair Community College. He is Secretary to the Board of Trustees for the Dayton Bar Association Foundation and serves on the Board of Trustees for Friends of the Castle. Mike regularly wears the hat of advocate; teacher; coach; trustee & mentor and applies the tools gained in each capacity to serve his clients.
