LEGAL SERVICES

PERSONAL INJURY
Serious car and other motor vehicle accidents require the guidance of an experienced attorney. I have over 20 years of practice and an impressive track record representing people who have suffered serious personal injuries in car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents.

I work with physicians and other health care providers to assess and review all the short and long-term medical aspects of your auto accident case. My detailed understanding of Ohio’s automobile, insurance and liability laws means I understand the different sources of recovery available to accident victims and their families as well as the various theories of liability that enable those victims to collect from the parties who caused them harm. If you have been injured in a auto accident in Ohio, call me today for assistance with your case.

When your car is damaged from an accident, no matter what some might say, you have freedom of choice when it comes to selecting an auto body repair facility.

Below is your “Consumer Bill of Rights” regarding collision repair:

1. You have the right to choose the repair shop you want to use.

2. You’re entitled to have your vehicle repaired to its pre-accident condition.

3. By law, you’re only required to obtain one repair estimate.

4. Choose a shop that has the proper repair equipment. Make sure it’s a Certified Assured Performance Collision Care Center – meeting the highest industry standards and qualifications.

5. Make sure your Collision Repair Center does not fix your vehicle with used or rebuilt parts without your authorization.

6. Always request a written warranty covering labor, materials, parts and paint. Certified Assured Performance Collision Care repair centers offer lifetime guarantees on all collision repair work performed on your vehicle.

7. Know that it is against the law for any collision repair facility to bury or absorb a deductible of an insurance policy for a covered automobile.

SMALL BUSINESSES AND ENTREPRENEURS
Do you have a business? Are you an entrepreneur starting a new venture?

I represent owners, investors and entrepreneurs in all aspects of business and commercial law, contracts and negotiations, business litigation and commercial real estate. Professional, responsive and aggressive representation is provided to sole proprietors, limited liability companies, partnerships, and corporations and legal strategies are designed with the client’s best interest in mind. I work with small businesses and new start-ups often times serving as general counsel providing services in areas such as buy/sell agreements, franchises, LLC/incorporations and operating agreements, non-compete/non-disclosure agreements and other related business legal services. If your business or venture needs counsel, call me today.

OVI/TRAFFIC OFFENSES
Driving is a privilege. Whether driving to work, school, church, or the park, the freedom of mobility that a driver’s license gives us is an important part of our everyday lives. Occasionally, though, mistakes, bad decisions, and accidents may result in restrictions on that freedom. Major Driving Offenses can result in the loss of your driving privileges and even jail time.

Many people can deal with minor driving offenses without hiring an attorney. Major driving offenses, though, are serious. Driving while your license is revoked or suspended may result in a loss of driving privileges for years, and even could involve jail time. This would have a severe impact on your work and family life. Operating a vehicle under the influence arrest is very serious, and Ohio state and local governments are treating the defendants in these crimes more harshly every year. Meanwhile, lawmakers are reducing the Blood Alcohol Level limits and increasing sentences. Simply refusing to be tested for BAC concentration could result in you losing driving privileges or being charged with an additional crime. Your freedom to drive and your personal freedom from jail are threatened by convictions for major driving offenses. Call me today.

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION
Ohio Workers’ Compensation was enacted by the state legislature to assist injured workers. Somewhere along its history, this process became and currently remains a technical and complex process that requires the help of an experienced attorney.

I have helped injured workers receive the workers’ compensation they are entitled for injuries on the job, short-term or long-term disabilities such as repetitive stress injuries. You can receive money for lost wages, medical bills, and job retraining, if that becomes necessary.

Ohio’s workers’ compensation process should be a simple matter, but if you are facing disagreements about the extent of your injuries, payment of your medical bills and treatments, or the amount of money you should be paid, you need an aggressive legal advocate to protect your rights. My experience will ensure you get the maximum benefits you deserve. Call me today for a free evaluation of your case.

REAL ESTATE
Real Estate issues are complex by its nature. There is no question you need an experienced attorney.

I represent individuals, businesses, and professional groups with respect to ownership, purchase and sale of real estate. This includes assisting in closings, title issues, boundary disputes, easements and zoning matters. My representation of lenders and developers involves negotiating, structuring, and documenting commercial, retail, residential, and industrial transactions and developments, including manufacturing facilities, shopping centers, office and apartment buildings. I have experience in drafting and negotiating commercial leases; in organizing, financing, and marketing residential and commercial condominiums, planned unit developments, subdivisions and in handling mortgage foreclosures. If you or your company is involved in real estate legal issues, call me today.
