Thank you for taking the time to explore my website. I graduated from Case Western
Reserve University School of Law in 1999 and became licensed to practice law in
Ohio that same year. I began my career at a national accounting firm where I concentrated
on employee benefits and executive compensation for various Fortune 500 companies.
I later discovered that I really enjoyed working with individuals and local businesses
so I joined a local law firm focusing on complex business issues, business formation,
probate, insurance and real estate matters. In 2009, I opened my own practice in
order to better assist my clients. Based upon my expanding client base and my love
of Asheville, North Carolina, I obtained a license to practice law in North Carolina
in 2010. While my office is physically located in Westlake, Ohio, I am available
to meet with potential clients in either Asheville, North Carolina or Westlake,
Ohio by appointment.
Prior to starting my career, I worked as a legal extern for a Federal Court Judge,
where I gained valuable experience in all aspects of litigation and procedural matters.
Since starting my own practice, I have taught a college level business law course
and sat on the Board of Trustees for a non-profit organization in Southern Ohio.
My firm will work zealously to represent the client.s interest in any matter in
which it is retained. Each client matter is handled with integrity, honesty and
with an understanding of how the matter impacts the client. I generally strive to
resolve disputes without resorting to litigation, if possible. However, I recognize
that in some cases, an acceptable resolution cannot be reached and the matter must
be resolved through litigation.
