Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ASocial Media

Having represented individuals, families and businesses over 21 years, and having had attorneys represent me in the past, I have learned that clients deserve compassion, vigorous representation, and honesty. My practice areas demand that I provide my clients with these qualities.

I have represented clients who have lost the dignity of work because of errors in their background report or background checks or lost the ability to get a loan because of a credit report error across the nation. Too many times people in these circumstances feel hopeless. I work hard to provide that needed hope and right the wrongs caused by faceless background and credit reporting agencies.

In addition, I have over 21 years of divorce, dissolution of marriage, custody, visitation and other family law practice experience. Having been divorced with children myself, I recognize the ups and downs of the divorce process. I represent Husbands and Wives in Avon, Ohio, Avon Lake, Westlake, Bay Village, Rocky RIver, Vermilion, Amherst, Sheffield, Erie County, Lorain County, Cuyahoga County and elsewhere in Ohio.

Lastly, I represent individuals and businesses in civil litigation, employment matters, non-compete agreements, personal injury cases and other legal matters.

Q. We have had 3 yr old grand daughter for 18 mos. Mom has severe mental illnesses, drug addict, dates inmates and felons
A: In this type of case we use her last address or serve her by publication. I think it would be best to seek the emergency temporary custody and seek either a dependency case or an unfitness custody case. Please feel free to call at 440-213-3184 should you have further questions.
Q. My ex husband and I were ordered to pay off a business loan at 50% each. He has stopped making payments
A: You can file a Motion to show cause contempt of court against him. Then he will be forced to come to court and show cause why he should not be held in contempt.
Q. My new employer pulled the offer the day I started. I already quit my old job. Do I have a case?
A: Do you think the employer terminated you because of your credit report? If the employer used the credit report to fire you, it should have first provided you with a copy of your report PLUS a written statement of your consumer rights (a document which tells you how to contact the reporting company and dispute any errors) BEFORE it made any final decisions on your employment. The law (in this case the Fair Credit Reporting Act) is there to protect job applicants and employees who are declined employment or fired because of the contents of a background or credit report. The FCRA requires that the employer FIRST provide you that copy of the report plus a meaningful opportunity (usually 5 days) to review, discuss and even dispute the contents BEFORE making any final employment decision. An employer that fails to follow these rules may be liable to an employee or job applicant for lost wages or other financial damages. Did the employer give you a copy of the report? ... Read More
