Bar Association Ratings: 

(1) List your judicial experience (courts and years) 
No experience as a judge.

(2) What about your non-judicial legal experience qualifies you to be a judge?
I have a wealth of legal and leadership experience. I am an Army Combat Veteran, having served in Korea and Operation Iraqi Freedom. I attained the rank of Sergeant, was awarded the Army Achievement Medal twice.

Before I became an attorney, I worked with several law firms. I also have experience working as an intern-prosecutor with the Wayne County Prosecutor in Detroit Michigan and as a law clerk.

After law school, I served at the Ohio General Assembly as a Senior Legislative Aide. Then I moved to the private sector where I represented hundreds of Ohio’s municipalities as Legislative Advocate for the Ohio Municipal League. During this time, I began my private practice, representing clients in complex financial matters. I now work full time as an attorney, representing clients in a wide array of matters, including general litigation, bankruptcy, bankruptcy litigation, and estate planning.

(3) Why are you running for this particular court seat?
My experience makes me particularly well-suited for dealing with difficult parties in resolving disputes. In fact, I’ve built my reputation on this skill set. The parties before the courts, and our community, need someone who is both a great judge and a great leader. I have proven to excel in both areas. After a number of negative stories in the media, the community is looking for new leaders to rebuild faith in the justice system. I will take the lead on communicating with the community and being a leader they can trust and believe in
