I began my legal career in 1998, starting out as a paralegal. I went on to law school and upon completion in 2006, continued practicing in Ohio. In 2009, I purchased my own firm with a partner. In 2016, I moved to Florida and began to practice in Manatee, Hillsborough and Sarasota Counties.

I have a holistic approach to the practice of law. When a client comes to see me, they are most likely facing a stressful legal matter, which can affect many areas of their lives. My goal is to try and solve the legal issue you are facing and reduce the stress that comes with the issue.

I believe in spending quality time with a potential client from the very first consultation. My first consultation is FREE and I will spend the time to gather all the information I need and answer every question that arises. Every client deserves respect. I will promptly return phone calls and emails keeping high levels of communication with my clients regarding their case.

My years in the legal field, combined with continued legal education and seminars, have provided me valuable experience in the areas of probate law, estate planning, bankruptcy and general litigation. I believe that a lawyer never stops learning. I represent all of my clients’ needs to the best of my capabilities and I always take time to research new matters.

I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio. I moved to southern Florida to join my high school sweetheart, reconnecting after 20 years. I absolutely love the sun and warmth Florida has to offer. During my free time I enjoy traveling, scrapbooking, reading, cross-stitching, golf and spending time with my family and friends. I recently became a certified diver and have enjoyed spending time taking in the sea life under the water. Anna Maria Island is currently one of my favorite local beaches! I have two children, both of who stayed in Ohio. My daughter has an amazing three year old son, making me a first time grandma, and my son recently finished college and is headed to the Navy!
