I have extensive experience reaching resolution to family law matters in and out
of the court room since 1993. I am able to adapt to the situation at hand.
If opposing counsel and/or spouse are being reasonable then we will settle the
matter in a dignified and respectful manner. Should the opposition be
unreasonable then we will seek fairness through the judicial system.
Without a doubt, the type of attorney you choose is one of the largest
determining factors of how your family law matter will proceed. By
choosing a difficult attorney you, and your family, are more likely to have a
There ARE times when an adversarial and
contentious divorce is unavoidable, but this can be the exception. I do have
significant ability and expertise litigating court cases since 1993. However,
my years of experience has taught me it takes much more skill and talent as an
attorney to successfully reach a fair and equitable resolution to a family law
matter outside of the court room than inside one.
I have seen the good, the ugly, and the uglier.
It is my overwhelming experience that those cases which are litigated through
Domestic Relations (Divorce) or Juvenile Court are counter-productive to the
FAMILY UNIT. Litigants may not be husband and wife for much longer, but they
will always be Mom and Dad and Grandma and Grandpa after that.
Families, and especially the children, deserve
a respectful and non-destructive division of their family. I do not care what
the situation, division of the family does not have to be ugly or cause
collateral damage to the children! It is possible to offer families a more
dignified and respectful termination of their marriage. Most of the time, a
healthy parting of the ways between two unhappy spouses will lead to a healthier
family unit; THIS is my ultimate professional goal!
Located in Cincinnati, Ohio I can provide
multiple legal services depending upon your needs, litigation representation,
Collaborative representation, mediator and Guardian Ad Litem (please see further

Warren and Butler Counties, Ohio.
