LITIGATION & EXPERIENCE:   I am an AV-Rated Attorney with 25+ years of first-chair trial, litigation and appellate experience. I have concentrated my practice to largely complex matters involving wrongful death, personal injury, product defects, and professional negligence. I have successfully litigated and tried cases in the civil, probate, and criminal divisions of Ohio’s state courts; and complex pharmaceutical and medical device matters in U.S. Federal District Courts and the United States Court of Federal Claims. I have briefed and argued many appeals at the state level including one case in the Ohio Supreme Court, reported as Carpenter v. Consolidated Rail Corp. (1994), 69 Ohio St. 3d 259, where the Court unanimously held in favor of my client on a first-impression federal preemption matter.  I have briefed and argued dozens of appeals in several district appellate courts; prepared and filed original actions for writs of mandamus & quo warra
nto; prepared and filed petitions for certiorari in the United States Supreme Court. I have actively participated in high profile multi-district litigation involving pharmaceutical and medical device cases.
