As a law student, I served as a law clerk at the Franklin County Common Pleas Court for former Ohio Supreme Court Justice Craig Wright. The experience gained in watching attorneys practice before the Court was invaluable. I have used this experience over the past 30 years in developing my own practice. I have represented several statewide trade associations in the insurance, engineering and surveying professions and my interaction with members of these professions has been very gratifying. I work closely with many small business owners and have extensive experience in business succession planning and acquisition matters. I also represent school districts, property owners, and political subdivisions on tax valuation, tax exemption, and abatement related matters. I give back to the legal profession by serving as a Bar Examiner for close to 20 years and as the Vice Chairman of the Board since 2014.
