My Focus on Results: Criminal Defense & Juvenile Law

Utilizing my knowledge of criminal law and the various Mahoning County and northeast Ohio courts including the juvenile justice system, the first step is to work with you and your family members to develop a plan to secure the best possible result. The goals of crime punishment are changing rapidly in our society and courts. The correlations between Adverse Childhood Events (ACE), mental health, literacy rates, school truancy, and being caught in the criminal system are now well documented and need to be thoroughly advocated to a court by an attorney who understands and cares about you and your circumstances. In addition to my work as an attorney, I have been a regular and substitute teacher and special needs assistant in Charleston County, Denver City, and Youngstown City schools, a volunteer Child Advocate, and a volunteer for a human trafficking recovery organization. This experience is invaluable when fighting for the rights of the accused and victims.


Securities & Financial Fraud

Securities and financial fraud takes many forms. I have extensive experience, as both an attorney and former stockbroker and securities compliance officer, with financial laws and regulations, the litigation and arbitration process, and the roles of the various government agencies in securities and financial law enforcement. I represent victims and the accused. If you have been wrongfully treated by a stock broker, investment adviser, insurance agent, or financial institution, or are being investigated by Federal or state securities, banking or insurance regulators, you need an experienced attorney.
