I am a civil litigation attorney focusing in the defense of contractors, architects, engineers and other business professionals, as well as insurance carriers in coverage disputes and individual defendants in automobile accident cases. I also represent plaintiffs in personal injury cases, provided there is no conflict, and do some transactional and legal drafting work. Prior to my current position, I was a judicial staff attorney for Judge Michael Jackson in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas. Before that position, for over nine years, I owned and managed a solo practice. At that time, I focused my practice in the areas of plaintiff's personal injury, criminal defense and appeals.
