Attorney Profile
Law School

Case Western Reserve University
1994 - 1997



I have spent my career developing a diverse background in innumerable litigation matters. I primarily concentrates my practice in the representation of companies in employment disputes, including litigation with terminated employees and disputes over trade secrets and non-competition agreements. I supplement my employment practice with complex commercial matters, such as fiduciary and shareholder litigation. His representation extends beyond the courtroom, into various state and federal administrative agencies.

Complementing my litigation practice, I also advise individuals and companies on a wide-range of employment, human relations, and labor-relations issues. I serve an “outside in-house counsel” role for businesses that lack an in-house labor & employment attorney. In this role, I draft policies and handbooks, audit HR practices and procedures, and advise companies on day-to-day HR issues such as employee discipline and terminations and workplace investigations. This role also frequently requires my service as an author and speaker on myriad employment-related issues. 

I am the author of the Ohio Employer’s Law Blog, where I writes daily to provide timely and practical employment law information for businesses in Ohio and beyond.  The blog is located at

I have also been extensively quoted in the local and national media on employment matters, including recent interviews in theWall Street JournalNational Law JournalBusiness Insurance MagazineCrain’s Cleveland BusinessInside Counsel, andLawyer’s USA.
