Summary

I began practicing law in 2002. I spent over 13 years with the Cleveland firm of Gallagher Sharp, primarily as a litigator, before venturing on my own and then landing at The Gertsburg Law Firm in 2017 before choosing to restart my own practice in 2020. Before becoming an attorney, I worked as a financial manager for a small business after earning his MBA. My experience allows me to understands the challenges facing small business owners, allowing me to advise, as well as provide valuable legal information. With over 20 years’ experience in the business and legal worlds, I strive to find timely cost-effective solutions rather than spending valuable resources to win at all costs. In the past, I have represented a diverse array of clients from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and individuals. My practice includes litigation, business advising, non-profit consulting, and probate. My business background and legal training offers a unique set of skills to help protect and grow businesses, ensure contract proposals are properly drafted and current contracts are fair, mitigate risks and analyze the cost/benefit of new endeavors. Beyond the practice of law, I am the proud father of two active children. I remain active in several non-profit organizations including being a board member of Open Doors Academy and legal advisor for Third World Books. Having played hockey my entire life, I currently coach youth hockey in Cleveland Heights and still takes to the ice competitively myself.

Legal Answers
15 Questions Answered

Q. What do i need to do to ensure upon my grandfather's passing that I can transfer a car title into my name/ownership ?
A: I agree with Attorney Williams. Having a Transfer on Death placed on the title of the vehicle is the best way to ensure the transfer of the car to you. Alternatively, the title of the car could be changed to have you as co-owners with right of survivorship. (WROS). Either way will avoid issues.
Q. What restrictions are there for disclosing confidential business information if you feel it may not be accurate?
A: In general, you should not disclose settlements, either that they happened or the amount to anyone outside of the investors of the privately held company. It is highly probable that the settlement agreement itself has a confidentiality/non-disclosure provision that prohibits the disclosure of the settlement. If you, as an investor, disclose that information you may be breaching the confidentiality clause of the settlement agreement which can cause any number of problems. If you are concerned that the settlement amount listed on the financials does not match the amount of the actual settlement amount you can ask for a copy of the settlement agreement. Depending on the company's policies and by-laws, you should be entitled to a copy, especially if the amount of the settlement is material to the company's financials. Remember that the amount of the settlement may not be all "out of pocket". The settlement amount may include insurance proceeds or direct payments from individuals or others outside the company
Q. Is it legal in Ohio for retailers to refuse cash payment? All US monies have "Legal Tender" on them...
A: Yes, it is legal for a private business to accept only some sorts of payments and to refuse cash payments. A governmental institution or chartered bank cannot refuse cash.
