What made you choose your primary specialty focus of law?

My focus is on Estate Planning, Business Law, and Probate.

I help families protect what they earn, avoid unnecessary risk, and plan for the future. This includes the creation of a Will, Power of Attorney, Living Will, or a Trust.

I advise business owners, directors, employees and officers of businesses ranging from start-up ventures to large privately held companies.

What makes your law firm unique?

We are a suburban Cincinnati firm that has been serving the legal needs of both corporations and individuals throughout the Greater Cincinnati area for over forty years. We are committed to providing legal representation that is both personal and of the highest quality.

Our firm is large enough to handle complex legal issues, yet small enough to provide the personal attention that our client's expect.

Describe your personal interest and hobbies.

Currently, I serve as Treasurer on the Gamma Xi 21, Inc. board and scholarship committee. Outside of the office, I enjoy travel, photography, and working within the Cincinnati community.
