For as long as I could remember, I've known two things about myself: one, I relish a good argument; and two, I've been passionate about defending those who need help, and helping those in need. These drew me to a career in the law. And since passing the bar in 2012, I've been fortunate to have pursued these two passions, earning significant experience providing legal counsel to businesses, families, and individuals.
During my time as an undergraduate philosophy student at the University of Akron, I honed my love for critical thinking and studied the theory and art of formulating an argument. It was one of my insightful professors who suggested that I take up law. It goes without saying that I heeded his advice and embarked on a career that has been one of the joys of my life.
I attended The Ohio State's Moritz College of Law, and after graduating early, I went on to work at a high level in both the public and private sectors covering a range of issues. These include handling criminal matters as a senior law clerk in the governor's office, advising Fortune 500 companies complex regulated transactions, managing and overseeing a $300 million business development program for the State of Ohio, and compassionately advising individuals and families through estate planning and probate matters. The breadth and level of my experience affords me a unique perspective on a range of legal issues, giving me an ability to effectively counsel business clients, families, and individuals through any number of legal issues.
