Providing Legal Service
After graduating from Marietta College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, I completed my graduate studies at the University of Akron’s School of Law and received my Juris Doctor (also known as professional) degree. I live with my family in Olmsted Falls and maintain my practice there as well.
While I provide a range of legal services, I have chosen to focus primarily on estate planning and elder law. I enjoy connecting with people and helping them as we work together to achieve their goals, whether it be in my office or at their kitchen table. I have practiced law for a little over a decade and have provided legal services to almost 4,000 clients to date.
I am responsive to my clients – Phone calls are usually returned the same day, typically within a few hours. I don’t let documents sit for days at any point in providing my legal services.
I make myself accessible to my clients – If a client is physically hindered from accessing my office, I am more than willing to meet with them in their home, care facility, or even their hospital room. I make myself available to my clients on evenings and weekends by phone or in person for appointments, especially in emergent situations. I have worked with clients as far west as Sandusky, as far east as Youngstown, and as far south as the Akron/Canton region.
I won’t recommend legal documents that don’t meet the needs of your personal situation. I make sure my clients have a full understanding of the legal documents I recommend we customize to achieve their personal goals. I am always happy to answer questions and/or explain legal terms. I want my clients to feel comfortable about the steps they are taking to address their needs, regardless of whether they are immediate or long-term in nature.
I understand. It’s unfortunate that some of the circumstances under which I come to work with my clients are not ideal and may cause a lot of emotion and stress to be felt by them. I recognize that clients may be dealing with their situation for the first time. You can count on my professionalism and compassion, as I help you to navigate and resolve issues.
My fees are reasonable and affordable. I have been told by my clients that my fees are usually less than those of other attorneys with whom they have consulted for their legal needs.
I hope you find this information helpful. Additional information specific to my services is available on this website for your review. I welcome the opportunity to consult with you and look forward to hearing from you.
