The focus of my practice has been corporate law and international law. In addition to contract work and client services I have litigated a number of cases, both in court and in arbitration, in Ohio and other states and countries. I currently serve as Chairman and counsel for US Bridge of Cambridge and New Albany, Ohio as well as Chairman and counsel for EWI (Edison Welding Institute, Inc.) of Columbus, Ohio. I am author of articles in the U.S, and Japan regarding U.S. litigation practices, including a booklet self-published in 2013 entitled "Judges for All", which advocates adoption of the retention ballot in judicial elections in Ohio. I was Chairman of the Columbus Bar Association Judiciary Committee and promoted the adoption of its first Bar Poll and Rating System, served on a Governor's Judicial and Legislative Compensation Commission where I chaired the Judiciary Subcommittee and advocated for judicial compensation improvement, a Governor's Operations Improvement Task Force, and in various other appointed positions. Most recently I promoted and supervised the drafting of legislation by the LSC for the adoption of the retention ballot for judicial general elections of judges who, having served a full term in office, are standing for re-election. My primary avocation at the present time is advocating for changes in our election laws to improve voting numbers in judicial general elections.
