    About Jude:

    As an experienced litigator I’ve counseled hundreds of clients through complex commercial disputes, insurance disputes, civil rights claims and more. Throughout each case my objective has remained consistent: deliver on my promises and exceed my clients’ expectations.


    For 25 years I’ve represented northeast Ohio businesses and individuals both in and out of the courtroom. I know how to aggressively defend my clients at trial and through appeals, and how to successfully keep my clients out of court when it’s in their best interest.


    It is an imperative part of my practice to always remain accessible and responsive so every client has a positive experience with me despite their often difficult circumstances.
