Columbus Trial Lawyer

"As the child of a Holocaust survivor, I have committed my life and professional career advocating for every person to always have a voice. I am a lawyer to protect the needs of others. I believe that a system of laws is truly the hallmark of a civilized society and that the law is more than a commodity; it can and should be a force for good. In my practice, I stand for the highest ideals of the legal profession, transcending class and individual interests to do so. I apply my intellect, education, and energy to ensure that no one faces the injustices that my family suffered when their voices were silenced during the Holocaust. The practice of law has armed me for the battles that must be waged every single day to advance the noble goals of liberty and justice".
