The Advantage Of A Solo Attorney

As a sole practitioner, I have the flexibility to provide the hands-on criminal defense representation you deserve. I will stay in close contact with you so that you understand the process and what to expect next. You can rely on me to work hard for you, providing the individual attention you deserve.

Many of my cases are referrals from past clients because they know and trust me to do an outstanding job for their family and friends.

All Cases And All Courts

I handle all kinds of criminal cases in Ohio state and federal courts. A major part of my practice involves DUI defense and expungement cases. Because I focus solely on criminal defense, I have the in-depth knowledge you need to fight serious charges.

Professional Involvement: Rooted In The Community

I am well-known and respected in the Cleveland area. I give back to the community in many ways, including serving as a volunteer juvenile magistrate to help keep kids out of juvenile detention. I have volunteered as chairperson of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association’s Ethics Board, and I serve as vice chair on the Lawyer-Client Fee Dispute Resolution Board, investigating disputes between clients and their attorneys over the fees that they have been charged.

By serving in volunteer leadership positions, I have gained credibility as a respected professional – a reputation that also benefits my clients.
