I grew up on Cincinnati’s West Side, attending LaSalle High School and the University of Cincinnati before graduating from UC’s College of Law in 1997. I am serving my third elected term as the Law Director for the City of Deer Park, where I currently reside. In my spare time, I can sometime be found playing guitar with my classic rock trio at any venue that will have us.
I handle a wide variety of family law issues, including divorce/dissolution, child custody, civil protection orders, and adoptions. I also enjoy helping people navigate the often-confusing Social Security Disability system.
When clients discuss their situation with me, I realize that their particular legal issue is probably one of the biggest sources of stress in their life at that time. I will work to achieve the best resolution for the client’s situation so that stressor can be eliminated, allowing them to get back to life as usual. I try to treat my clients as I would want my friends or relatives to be treated by an attorney.
