Summary

For fifteen years, I have been actively involved in environmental law, both as an attorney and as a regulator. I am a partner at the law firm of Frantz Ward in Cleveland and head the firm’s environmental practice. I represent businesses in all areas of federal and state environmental law, including laws governing hazardous waste clean up, brownfield redevelopment, solid waste, water, wetland and air regulation.

Prior to joining Frantz Ward, I was in the senior management of Ohio EPA, holding the positions of Director, Assistant Director and Chief Legal Council. I also worked in the Ohio Attorney General's Office handling environmental enforcement cases and administrative appeals. I feel my diverse background provides me an effective skill set to effectively represent my clients.

I am a frequent speaker and writer. I maintain the Ohio Environmental Law Blog (www.ohioenvironmentallawblog.com). My blog has been referenced by other internet publications and profiled in publications such as Cleveland Business Connects. I also have given media interviews to various National and Ohio publications (U.S. News & World Report, Plain Dealer, Columbus Dispatch, and Toledo Blade) as well as trade publications, such as Inside EPA.
