I have been practicing law in the Greater Cleveland area for over twenty-two years. During this time, I have developed and grown as a professional and have learned a depth of empathy often not found in my profession. As my client, you will always come first. You will never be sold anything you don't need or want. I want you to feel free to call, e-mail or text me with questions or concerns. Truly, your satisfaction and peace of mind are my priority. You will always be respected by both myself and my staff.
I am licensed to practice law in the State of Ohio, and routinely provide representation in litigation, mediation, alternate dispute resolution, negotiation and appeals in Northeast Ohio. I provide legal services in estate planning, probate, pet trusts, civil litigation, juvenile criminal representation, domestic relations including divorce, dissolution, child support, and much more.
