I have over 30 years of wide-ranging experience. A practical, efficient problem-solver with sound judgement, leadership and management, I specialize in oil & gas, environmental, real estate and general business law with successful experience in business, legal and military settings. I am proud to be "Of Counsel" with the Columbus office of the well-known firm of Steptoe & Johnson. As such, I and my clients have access to first class attorneys with a wide range of expertise. Check out the web site at: www.steptoe-johnson.com. To my clients and prospective clients: "I offer loyalty, confidentiality, competence, diligence and my best judgment. I shall represent you as I should want to be represented and be worthy of your trust. I shall counsel you with respect to alternative methods to resolve disputes. I shall endeavor to achieve your lawful objectives as expeditiously and economically as possible." -- from A Lawyer's Creed adopted by the Ohio Supreme Court, 1997
