Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

At the age of 13, I attended a civil rights march to Music Hall on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with my Aunt Megan, who I have had the pleasure of practicing law with for my entire career. From that point, I had more than a passing interest in the civil rights of all people. During my Junior year at Bowling Green State University, where I was majoring in English and History and minoring in Africana Studies, I considered careers as an English professor or an attorney. After interning for a summer at Casper & Casper, I realized my passion for promoting and protecting the civil rights of all people and for providing people with access to justice through the legal process. In 2007, I joined Casper and Casper as an Associate. I focus my legal practice on Personal Injury Law, Negligence Law, Employer Intentional Torts, Employer Violations of Specific Safety Requirements and Products Liability, among other areas. I always handle Workers' Compensation administrative hearings and litigation. Each time I meet with a new client, I explain the team approach taken by Casper & Casper regarding every case, an approach that utilizes the expertise and experience of the attorneys at Casper & Casper and within the practice as a whole and that pinpoints the right experts for each specific case. I tell my clients that I will do everything possible to make sure that they walk away from a trying experience with the best possible outcome for them. I am upfront and genuine in my approach to each case and will listen to my clients’ concerns and questions while clearly communicating the steps in the legal process that can lead to a successful outcome. I reside near Cincinnati after growing up in Ross Township in Butler County, Ohio. I currently serve as the Assistant Coach of the Northern Kentucky Youth Hockey Association Bantam House team. I also actively serve on the Butler County Advisory Board to the American Cancer Society and am active in the American Cancer Society Can
