I've represented creditors, trustees and debtors during my years of practice. In my bankruptcy practice, my greatest satisfaction comes from coaching the person who is in despair over finances to a fresh start and a more promising future. In my family practice, it's helping folks with children build new futures for those children that are as safe and nurturing as possible. Both practices require patience, knowledge and a strong ability to take many puzzle pieces scattered hither and yon and put them back together to achieve the optimum outcome - and I DO that!

Estate Planning
Ohio Northern University
I am often asked “Why don’t people seriously plan their estates?” I’ve heard many different reasons over 40 years as an Estate and Trust Planning attorney. The most common reason, I believe, is at one time or another, we tend to PROCRASTINATE. Why?

As I explain to clients, look at estate planning as LIVING PLANNING – just as you would plan a vacation, retirement or wedding. In fact, it is your attempt to use...
