    Attorney Profile

    I concentrate my practice in the areas of domestic relations, employment and municipal law.

    In the area of domestic relations, I have special interest and extensive experience in the areas of military divorce and custody, international and interstate divorce and custody litigation, as well as other high conflict divorce support and custody cases. I am also trained as a collaborative attorney and can assist clients who wish to use an alternative to contested litigation.

    In the area of estate and probate, I help individuals craft an estate plan customized to their needs and goals and represent individuals in litigation involving will contests, guardianships and related matters..

    As a municipal attorney, I serve as the law director for the City of Riverside, Ohio, and have served as the assistant law director for the City of Trotwood, Ohio and the law director of the City of Oakwood.
