I am licensed to practice law in the State of Ohio.
I have participated in litigation in all Northern District of Ohio federal trial courts, as well as in the bankruptcy courts located in the Northern District of Ohio. I am licensed to or have gained admission to practice in United States Sixth and Eleventh Circuit Courts of Appeals, as well as in Federal District Courts in Illinois, Michigan, Arizona, Florida, Indiana and Tennessee - I have also argued appellate cases before the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
