Criminal Defense Law
Regardless of the crime you have been charged with, at the heart of defense is an evaluation of whether your rights were infringed and whether the evidence collected meets the state's burden of proof.

Civil Rights and Litigation
Sometimes the wrong does not rise to the level of a crime. However, that does not mean you do not deserve justice. There are many possible remedies available from injunctions, to restoration of rights, to monetary compensation for injury, harm, or loss.  Fight for your rights.


Post-Conviction Remedies
Options to challenge or move past a criminal conviction may exist beyond an appeal: post-conviction relief; clemency, pardon, or commutation; and sealing & expungement are all potential avenues of relief worth exploring.

Appellate Law

Sometimes the trial court gets it wrong. An appeal allows an objective review of the facts, circumstances, and applicable law by a panel of judges who have fresh eyes.

Juvenile Law
Kids get in trouble. Juvenile courts play by different rules (literally). Make sure your children's rights are upheld.

After a career in corporate-America working at both Fortune 500 companies and start-up, entrepreneurial operations, I returned to school to gain my law degree. I saw an opportunity to help people in need, and I jumped in with both feet to pursue this passion. I am the former chair of the Akron Bar Association's Criminal Law Section, and am also a member of the Turning Point Advisory Committee where I volunteer my time, pro-bono, as a defense attorney for clients in Summit County's Turning Point drug-court program.

I am proud to have the privilege to represent real people in their real world legal issues.

 

I have studied hard, trained hard, and continue to work hard to achieve and maintain the ability and privilege to represent my clients. Every single client is unique and deserves my full attention whether on a phone call, during my own private study of their case, or in court. Representation of my clients is a responsibility I take very seriously and I will stop at nothing to pursue the best possible outcome for each and every person I have the privilege to represent.

My mind is open.


Though I may not have personally lived my clients' experiences, I hold as sacrosanct the trust and faith they place in me to tell their story where, when, and how it matters most. I strive to see the world through their eyes, to understand their perspective, and to empathize with how they feel - all without judgment or opinion.

I'd like to share with you THE PHILOSOPHY I BRING TO MY WORK.
