How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

As a practicing attorney and having had the opportunity to be involved in various types of businesses as an owner and operator, I understand the stress and demands placed on individuals when starting and running their business. I also recognize the importance that small and mid-sized businesses play in our society creating jobs, growing the economy and strengthening their respective communities. However, I realize that many individuals avoid the services of an attorney because of exorbitant fees that are often charged in relation to services provided. On the other hand, many individuals have utilized what appears to be cost saving online quick and non-interactive services, which, quite frankly, can be a disservice and end up costing the individual more in the long run. Not only is there a void of critical legal communication to ensure all areas are covered, many individuals come to realize that they are also confronted with additional fees and costs. I have formed Ohio Legal Solutions to provide ultra-responsive, interactive and continuing superior service that will cost far less and up to 1/4 the cost that others charge and there are no hidden fees or costs. My goal is to help take the stress out of your venture and guide you through the formalities so that you can properly plan and focus on what is important, which is building a business, having fun and ultimately making money.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

I graduated from East Tennessee State University with BA and MBA degrees. I continued my education at Capital University Law School, earning a JD degree. Thereafter, my initial legal experience began as a Staff Attorney for Justice Andrew Douglas with The Supreme Court of Ohio where I gained valuable experience at the highest state appellate level dealing with numerous substantive and procedural areas of the law. Following my employment with the Court, I had the opportunity to become a part owner/operator, with my father and brother, in a specialty tool manufacturing business. Along with being the company’s Chief Legal Counsel, I was the Director of Marketing/Sales and was also involved in product development. I attended to the care of all legal policies and issues, provided advice to minimize risk, drafted necessary legal documents, and helped with employee issues. I also designed, implemented and managed all marketing/sales strategies and distribution channels, launched an e-commerce website, and was directly involved in developing numerous new products from concept through design and final sale. In 5 years, revenues increased from $2,000,000 to $9,000,000. Along with manufacturing experience, I also have franchise experience as an attorney and owner/operator. I launched, ran and sold a very successful retail restaurant franchise, as an owner/franchisee. This included handling all legal and business matters from company formation, day-to-day matters, and the necessary negotiations and document preparations to complete the final sale. Today, my focus is helping my present clients, helping new and existing business owners/entrepreneurs with their operational needs, and providing a service for attorneys who could use help on a project, case or other matter.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I would be glad to help in reviewing documents prepared by clients. Ohio Legal Solutions will work to protect you and help you minimize your risks in an ulta-responsive and cost effective manner.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

I strive to resolve all matters prior to the need of seeking redress in the courts. Lawsuits are often times neither time efficient or cost effective.

Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

I will do what ever is needed and in the best interests of the client.
