I was chosen to the 2015 and 2016 Super Lawyers lists for Criminal Defense and as a Top Lawyer by Columbus CEO magazine in 2015. I have an AV Preeminent rating by Martindale-Hubble which is defined as "a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence." Now entering my 21th year of practice, my clients receive the benefit of my many years of trial experience. I am dedicated to, and prepared for, each client.
The focus of my practice is DUI / OVI, traffic and criminal defense in Columbus and Central Ohio. I work every day to protect my client's Sixth Amendment right to counsel and to zealously defend my client's interests in court.
I practice criminal law. My clients benefit from my varied legal experience, which includes 23 years in the prosecutors office, 3 years as a judge, and 13 years in private practice.
