Claimed Lawyer Profile

I am an AV-Preeminent attorney in Cleveland, Ohio, with 28 years experience as a civil litigation and trial lawyer. I focus my practice on discrimination, overtime, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, and employee rights generally. I also represent businesses in commercial litigation matters. I am a dedicated, passionate advocate for people whose employment and civil rights have been violated. I believe that people need a lawyer who will level the playing field in disputes with their employer and the government. In addition to my practice, I am an adjunct Professor Law at Cleveland State University. I received a Bachelor of Arts with honors from Kenyon College, my law degree with honors from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and a Masters Degree in Law from Columbia University. After serving as a federal judicial clerk, I represented Fortune 500 companies in complex commercial and employment litigation. In 2003, I began focusing my practice on helping people, not corporations. Having practiced as a defense lawyer, I have a unique and invaluable perspective on representing plaintiffs. I have wide-ranging experience in the trial and appellate divisions in both federal and state courts and before numerous administrative agencies.
