As a litigator, I focus my practice on preventing and resolving business disputes for my clients in need of employer defense, workers’ compensation defense and OSHA/safety guidance.
For over 30 years, I have successfully protected employers and small to mid-size businesses throughout Ohio with consistent, steady advice aimed both at avoiding and minimizing problems. Because I understand that results matter, when an unavoidable issue arises, I offer measured advice and an aggressive, proactive approach to litigation.
I believe in presenting an early and thorough defense for each client that will save you time and money, and produce the best possible results.
