I was born and raised in the Ohio Valley in a small town near Steubenville, Ohio. In 1991, I made Columbus my home when I moved here to attend The Ohio State University. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Ohio State in 1996, double majoring in political science and criminology. Throughout my undergraduate years, I worked at the Ohio State College of Law assisting law students and attorneys find jobs in the legal community.
I attended Ohio State College of Law and received a Juris Doctor degree in 1999. Throughout my law school years, I clerked for a prominent criminal defense firm in downtown Columbus. This experience assisted me in starting my own practice upon being licensed in 1999.
Since then, I have built and maintained my practice, earning a reputation as a excellent lawyer who works hard for his clients. In my years of practice, I’ve represented thousands of clients with varying backgrounds and diverse legal issues. I take my clients interests seriously and endeavor to provide them with effective, responsive legal help.
I am affiliated with several professional organizations, including:
- Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (OACDL)
- Ohio State Bar Association
- Columbus Bar Association
- Central Ohio Association of Juvenile Lawyers
- American Bar Association
