I have been practicing law for over 30 years.  My career began as a Lieutenant in the United States Navy, stationed at Treasure Island, California.  I am licensed in both Ohio and California.  I've been practicing law exclusively in California since 1988.  I have substantial trial experience in state court, federal court and before administrative agencies.  I also handle appeals in both the state court and federal court.  In addition to litigation, I represent clients in both arbitrations and mediations.   As a litigator, I also provide advice to clients on how to avoid litigation and have been succesful in intervening early in a dispute to avoid costly litigation.

I am an active member in the Tort, Trial & Insurance Practice Section of the ABA (American Bar Association).
