What I Can Do For You

I’ve been practicing law in Ohio for over 45 years. With all those years of experience, there isn’t much I haven’t seen. That’s a huge advantage for you.

When you contact me, I’ll listen to you and offer you perspective and guidance that can only come from someone who has been practicing law for nearly five decades. I will walk you through every step of the legal process applicable to your case and help you understand how things should be done, why they need to be done this way and how long it will take. While I can tell you all these things, please know that you are in charge of your case at all times. We will be a team and act with your best interests as the priority, not ours.

We’ll discuss things you may never have even thought about and I’ll answer all your questions. If you decide to hire my law firm, we will get to work immediately and I’ll see to it that your case is given all the resources it needs to be successful. I’ll also make sure you are kept updated and informed on the progress of your case.

While I may not be the attorney who is directly handling your case, you will have access to me at all times. I will give you my cell phone number and we can speak anytime you like.
