About me

Hi! This is my opportunity to let you know a little about me. I was born and raised in a small, rural town in southern Ohio. I can hardly remember a time when I did not want to be a lawyer, so I always worked toward making that dream happen. And now it is a reality. I enjoy being a lawyer because I get the oppurtunity to work with people and help guide them through difficult situations. The secret to being successful is loving what you do.


On a more personal note, I have a lot of hobbies and interests that I enjoy pursuing. I love American History, current events, movies, and sports. Namely following my beloved Cincinnati Reds. I am also very active in my church and community. it is very rewarding to be involved and give back.


I hope you've enjoyed learning about me and thank you for visiting my page. If there is anything we can help you with do not hesitate to let us know. We are here to serve you!
