About

I was born and raised in Columbus. Upon graduation from Worthington Christian High School in 1984, I was fortunate enough to earn partial athletic and academic scholarships at Judson University (Elgin, Illinois) where I studied communications and played four years of varsity soccer. 

After college, I returned to Columbus to study law at Capital University Law School during the evening while during the day, I worked at the Franklin County Probate Court where I served as a law clerk to former probate judges Dick Metcalf and Larry Belskis. Since my graduation from law school and admission to the Ohio Bar in 1993, I have practiced exclusively in the areas of probate, estate planning (wills, trusts, powers of attorney), guardianships and long term planning for seniors, including planning and applying for Medicaid eligibility. I also have significant experience as court-appointed counsel for individuals who are allegedly mentally ill and subject to possible court-ordered psychiatric commitment. 

In addition to having my own office in Clintonville, I also enjoy an “of counsel” relationship with the law firm of Manos Martin & Pergram in Delaware, Ohio.

Hope, my wife, who I met at college, does her best to keep me and our three teen-age sons in line. Although I continued playing soccer for about fifteen years after college, I’ve since retired my cleats. However, I’ve enjoyed coaching through the Northwest Kiwanis youth soccer program for the past ten years. Occasionally, I play guitar or bass with the praise and worship team at church.
