I am licensed to practice law in the State of Ohio and the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.
I am a member of the Ohio Association for Justice (OAJ) and the Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA). OAJ’s mission is to preserve constitutional rights of individuals and protect access to the civil justice system. One of OSBA’s goals is to promote improvement of the law and administration of justice.
Throughout my legal career, I performed extensive research and wrote many briefs for Ohio Appellate Courts and the Ohio Supreme Court, including two amicus briefs on behalf of OAJ. Articles I wrote analyzing various legal issues were published in “Ohio Trial,” an OAJ publication.
In 2013, I became a consultant for QuaeroLex Desktop Organizer, an application used to better organize and analyze my legal research. This results in improved representation and decreased costs.
I graduated with honors from the Ohio State University Moritz College of Law in 1991 after having received my Bachelor of Arts in English from Washington & Jefferson College. I graduated cum laude and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa.
In 1990, I was hired as a law clerk at a firm in downtown Columbus. The firm practiced in the areas of personal injury, medical malpractice, workers compensation, business law and probate. I continued working with the firm in various capacities through 2013 and continue to work with one of the attorneys from the firm who is a solo practitioner.
Now that you have read my pedigree, let me tell you about my passion. I want to see wrongdoers held responsible for their acts. I want people whose lives have been turned upside-down and sometimes completely ruined to be compensated for their injuries. I want fairness in the legal system. These are my goals when I am representing my clients and I strive to meet these goals.
