Ever since I was a little kid, I have been completely captivated by the Constitution and the U.S. Supreme Court. Anything related to either of those would grab my attention, and as I got older I realized that I could actually do something with that interest. So while getting through my regular schooling, the natural progression for my education was to go to law school. 

My Background

I had the opportunity to take a trial advocacy class and was hooked. After that class, I was accepted to the mock trial team and did very well there. As a law student at the University of Akron School of Law, I was blessed to be part of one of the top trial advocacy groups in the country. 

Once I became part of that team, my passion reached new heights and I never looked back. Participating in mock juries, getting to travel around the country, and really experiencing a lot of trial work was invaluable to my education and career preparation. At times, I felt scared to death that I would fail but continued to grow in every situation outside of my comfort zone.

I’m here to offer justice to anyone in need, as it has always been my dream to be an excellent trial attorney.


I graduated from law school in 1994 and began my career in criminal defense law. That was the fastest way to stand at a trial with a jury, and for me, it all just clicked. I was confident in my representation skills, especially after the first three trials I handled resulted in "Not Guilty" verdicts for my clients. After building my knowledge, skills, and confidence for six years working with other law firms, I had the opportunity to open my own firm. While there was some back and forth between being a solo practitioner and serving as in-house counsel for other firms, I ultimately came back to private practice and the doors of TCM Law Group have been open ever since.
