I have represented clients for nearly 20 years in negotiations, motion practice, trials, and appeals. My litigation practice focuses on defending national retailers and restaurants in premise liability claims, representing lawyers and law firms in legal malpractice claims, and counseling recreational vehicle manufactures in lemon law claims. I’ve presented seminars on premise liability for the Ohio State Bar Association and the National Business Institute and regularly attend national retail and hospitality seminars. I also advise landlords and businesses in lease negotiations and disputes.

Significant Cases

  • McCoy v. Kroger, 2005 Ohio App. LEXIS 6279 (Trial court properly determined that a trench into which an invitee stepped as he was exiting his tractor trailer was open and obvious. The invitee admitted that he was not looking at the ground while exiting and, while it was dark outside at the time, this fact should have increased, not decreased, the degree of care the invitee exercised.)
  • Temple v. Fleetwood Enters., 2005 U.S. App. LEXIS 9992 (Motor home and engine manufacturers were entitled to summary judgment in consumers' action under Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act and Lemon Law, and Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act; there were never more than two repairs for any one defect and no defect remained after warranty period.)
  • Robson v. Allstate Ins. Co., 2001 Ohio App. LEXIS 4193 (The trial court was correct in granting judgment for the insurer. There was no coverage under the main policy by operation of the policy language and the policy provisions were not ambiguous or contradictory. In addition, the appellate court found that the policy's language had properly followed the allowable exclusions of Ohio Rev. Code Ann. § 3937.18 and that it appeared to be the specific intent of the Ohio General Assembly to allow insurance carriers to contractually limit their exposure.)
  • Home Ins. Co. v. OM Group, Inc., 2003 Ohio App. LEXIS 3315 (The court did not err in requiring insureds to prove policy coverage. As the insureds failed to show property damage, there was no coverage for asserted loss and no duty to defend. Summary judgment for the insurers was proper.)
