See my Reviews

I was raised in Cleveland and attended public school, culminating in my graduation from Midpark High School. Through my participation in wrestling and achieving placement in the Ohio State finals, I gained invaluable lessons in discipline and hard work. These principles have remained with me, driving me to give my all in every endeavor I undertake.

As an attorney, I place great importance on actively listening to my clients. I understand that while dealing with the courts and law enforcement may be a routine part of my life, it is not the case for my clients. I firmly believe in a client's right to have their day in court, and while I offer my professional opinion on matters, the ultimate decision rests with them on how they wish to proceed.

In situations where a state official blatantly violates the rights of a private citizen, I strongly believe in the necessity of safeguarding individuals' rights and ensuring accountability. Consequently, I have chosen to focus more of my professional efforts on representing citizens who have experienced civil rights violations at the hands of overzealous officers.

I take immense pride in being a resident of Cleveland, residing in downtown Cleveland and relishing in all the incredible aspects the city has to offer. Exploring the outdoors and embarking on long journeys with my wife on my Harley Davidson are activities that bring me joy and fulfillment.
