I consider it an honor to stand before a jury and talk to them on behalf of my client.  I have been doing it for nearly 40 years and it is still a profession that challenges me today as it did at the start.  And I even enjoy the preparation!  I am not a litigator.  I am a trial lawyer.

First Admitted: 1974, Ohio
