About This Firm

With a strong desire to help individuals, I have limited my areas of practice to Family Law, Bankruptcy, Probate and Estate Planning. These are the areas of the law which most individuals will need an attorney for during their lifetime.

I started practicing in 1989 with a large portion of my practice being dedicated to Family Law. Which includes divorce, dissolution, paternity actions, child support, custody and post decree filings in the Domestic Relations Court.

Soon it became apparent that after a divorce most clients needed Estate Planning to insure that their assets are passed to the intended beneficiary and out of reach of their ex-spouse. Additionally, even their parents needed Estate Planning. For one does not want to leave monies to a grandchild and then have their former son-in-law or daughter-in-law controlling these funds. This resulted in me adding Estate Planning and Probate to my practice.

Unfortunately, these current economic times have resulted in large number of individuals being forced to file bankruptcy. Once prosperous clients have found themselves with no other option. In order to meet the expanding legal needs of my clients in 2005 I added bankruptcy to my practice areas. I can analyze your financial situation, advise you if you qualify to file a bankruptcy, which type of bankruptcy to file, and if this is the best option for you.

I have located my office in Independence, Ohio, near the intersection of Rockside Road and I-77. I chose this location due to the convenience and easy access it provides to most of Cuyahoga and Summit County. With the widening of Rockside Road and additional access roads, traffic has not been an issue for many years. Further, clients find the accessibility and ample free parking a major convenience.

Case Experiences:

With over twenty-three years of experience I am able to advise you immediately as to what you are entitled to under the law. As well as what a fair settlement to your case would be.

It is claimed that 95% of all cases are settled prior to trial without leaving the decision up to a Judge or Jury. Since a fair and just outcome can often be reached by negotiations between the parties. However, if a case cannot be settled, you can be assured that I can and am willing to litigate your case. I do not hold the belief that it is best to settle all cases and avoid litigation at any expense.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
