Summary

I have been practicing as a Columbus, Ohio Bankruptcy Attorney for over 28 years from the same location. I'm a lifelong resident of Columbus, Ohio. I attended Eastmoor High School, The Ohio State University, and obtained my law degree from Capital University. I take pride in meeting all of my clients personally. In 2007, I tried one the biggest cases in the country pertaining to bankruptcy. I tried it for free because I believed it was the right thing to do and now it is Federal Bankruptcy case law. I fight hard for my clients.
