When businesses find themselves in trouble in Ohio and elsewhere, they turn to me for assistance. With my experience and breadth of knowledge of not only Ohio law but various consumer protection statutes, I work closely with my clients to tailor a legal strategy to not only resolve their issues in the most cost-effective manner, but to also ensure that the issues that caused a lawsuit to be filed in the first place are remedied on a company-wide basis.
