Description of Practice

Let’s face it—sometimes things don’t go as planned. Mistakes are made. Misunderstandings arise. Someone doesn’t do what they promised. When these things happen, your first step will probably be to pick up the phone and try to work something out. If that succeeds, great. If not, give me a call. I have successfully helped parties resolve their disputes as a mediator, and have served as a court-appointed arbitrator. I have also successfully represented parties as an advocate in mediations and arbitrations before FINRA, AAA, JAMS, and others. Whether you need an arbitrator to decide your dispute or a mediator to help you reach a settlement, I can help.

Professional Background

In 1982, after earning a Bachelor of Science degree from the College of William and Mary, I served as a commissioned officer in the United States Coast Guard. I competed Officer Candidate School and spent the next three years on active duty, serving at search and rescue stations on the North Carolina coast and as an officer on the USCGC Hamilton, a 378-foot cutter based out of Boston, Massachusetts.

After completing my Coast Guard service in 1986, I earned a Masters of Business Administration from Northeastern University and spent the next several years working for entrepreneurs and small business owners. I also met and married my wife Debra, she established herself in her career, and she and I started a family. When I graduated from law school in 1997, we moved to Northeast Ohio and I began practicing law.

I started my legal career in the Cleveland office of Jones Day, one of the world’s top law firms, where I worked on behalf of some of the largest corporations in America. I later joined Ulmer & Berne, which is widely and deservedly recognized as one of the best law firms in the Midwest. As a partner at Ulmer & Berne, I represented large corporations and major financial institutions throughout the country.

In February, 2016, I left Ulmer & Berne to start my own practice. As a mediator and an arbitrator, I help people resolve their disputes without the costs, burdens, and uncertainty of litigation. When you are ready to resolve your dispute, give me a call.
