Summary

I am a trial attorney who takes on hospitals and other medical corporations when they choose to put their own profits ahead of their patient’s safety. My practice is focused on medical negligence and wrongful death, primarily delayed diagnosis and treatment of heart attacks and strokes, as well as birth injuries. My residence is in Ohio, but I handle cases throughout the United States. When people experience trauma and grief, their world can begin to unravel. I get a tremendous amount of satisfaction knowing that I am helping people and standing up for them when they feel like no one else will. In fact, that’s why I became a lawyer, and I’ve been blessed to help many great people and clients. I’ve remained close with many of my clients long after their case ended. While I’ve won many awards and honors for my accomplishments in the courtroom, it’s knowing that I’ve been able to help people through their most difficult times that gives my job meaning. I remember one of my first cases as a young lawyer was an incredibly challenging case that involved a young woman who suffered a brainstem stroke following head trauma. The injury left her with little use of her arms and legs. I remember meeting her and telling her that I could not guarantee that I would be able to win her case, but promising her that I would devote everything I have to trying to help her. Fortunately, we were successful, and the compensation from the lawsuit allowed her to restore her life. Since that day, that’s a promise I make to everyone of my clients. I am from Flint, Michigan and attended Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio where I was a running back on the football team. While I was in college, I met my wife, Hilary, who was a singer in the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. After college I attended Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio. Hilary and I live in Lakewood, Ohio. When I’m not in trial or busy working on a case, I love to spend tim
