I have been practicing law since my graduation from the Ohio State University School of Law in 1985. Prior to going to law school I obtained an undergraduate degree in Business Management and an MBA, both from Ohio University. I have extensive experience in representing clients both in a wide-ranging assortment of civil litigation matters and in various business transaction. I am available to handle civil litigation matters ranging from business collections, real estate disputes, personal injury actions and probate litigation. I also handle complex business litigation involving contracts, partnerships and corporate disputes. In addition, I represent a number of construction companies and material suppliers ranging from one person companies to those with thousands of employees. My daughter’s love of horses has also resulted in my not only owning a few but to representing owners, trainers and breeders. In addition, the rapid expansion in Licking County has resulted in my firm dealing with a variety of zoning and variance matters.
I am AV Rated by Martindale-Hubble and on multiple occasions have been recognized by Columbus CEO Magazine as one of the top Civil Litigators in Central Ohio.
I served six years on the Board of the Buckeye Valley BIA, serving as president in 2013. During my time on the Buckeye Valley BIA Board I had the honor of receiving the president’s award in 2012 and again in 2016.
Currently I sit on the Board of the Buckeye Valley Family YMCA. In that capacity, I oversee a program I began in 2014 known as the Heathy Kids Network. That program, through the generous efforts of volunteers and donors, provides food to children on the weekends who otherwise would have little or nothing to eat. The program serves 500 children every weekend in 20 different elementary schools in Licking County, Ohio.
In 2017, I started my own firm after twenty-six years as a partner in a prominent Newark, Ohio law firm, having decided it was time for a new adventure. While I principally practice in Licking and surrounding counties, I frequently represent clients throughout the State of Ohio.
I will be happy to speak with you about your legal problems and look forward to hearing from you.
