When you are facing a sensitive legal matter, your attorney’s legal experience matters.
In 2018 I will celebrate my 40th year in practice.
I am certified by the Ohio State Bar Association as a Specialist in Family Law.
My specialty includes Divorce and Legal Separation, Dissolution and Annulment.
It also includes the following:
- Parenting Time
- Child Support
- Spousal Support (formerly called Alimony)
- Parentage Actions
- Contempt of Court
- Civil Protection Orders
- No Stalking Orders
- Qualified Domestic Relations Orders.
I handle trials and negotiation in these areas and appeals to the Court of Appeals when that becomes necessary.
Although my practice is almost exclusively in Family Law, I am also required to be familiar with other areas of law that affect my clients. These areas may include:
- Debt Collection
- Real Estate
I must be knowledgeable about psychological evaluations, business evaluations, pension evaluations, property appraisals, vocational evaluations and to know when to call upon experts in these other disciplines.
My practice is limited to Lake, Geauga and Ashtabula Counties in Ohio because I believe it is more important that I be very familiar with the Courts in which I practice law, than it is to practice law in many courts.
