Practice Areas

  • Adoption
  • Adoption Subsidy Matters
  • Child Welfare/Juvenile Court Matters


Adoptions are emotional, sensitive, and intensely complex matters. The process is laden with rules and laws and, is a paramount life decision. I strive to provide compassion while advocating through the process. Each client and case is unique.  I aspire respectfully meet the individual needs of each client. 

I am a Solo practitioner focusing on Adoption and Child Welfare Law.  I was an Assistant City Prosecutor from 1993-1998, with a brief stint as a defense attorney.  I was a Staff Attorney from 1998-2004, where my responsibilities included counseling and representing the Adoptions Department. I opened my law practice in 2004, and have focused on adoptions and child welfare cases. My clients are varied, in that I represent prospective adoptive parents, expectant/birth parents, and some adoption agencies. A portion of my practice involves adoption subsidy negotiations.

Having my own practice has afforded me the flexibility to be available for my family, while still caring for my clients. 

I travel the entire State of Ohio to represent clients.
