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

Class action work is very challenging and rewarding. It can be a great societal benefit in the form of injunctive relief obtained.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I encourage it, so long as there is a clear understanding that there can only be one "captain of the ship."

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am always willing and often grateful for the input.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

There is a danger here. Rarely will I.

The only other employment of any consequence was as a grocery store manager from 1964 to 1974 in Akron, Ohio.

Retail food store manager in 1960s and working with impaired judges and lawyers suffering from substance abuse issues.

Even tempered, friendly, informal when situation calls for it; at nearly 66 years of age, am becoming a better listener.

Personal interests:

Histories, golf, and gardening.
