I am proud to currently serve as Secretary and look forward to serving you as Treasurer. I have served multiple terms on the board as a representative, and as past-president of the Young Lawyers Section and the Legal Aid Society Board of Trustees; I intend to put that experience to good use in helping steward the resources of the Bar on your behalf. My background is that of an appellate and trial litigator. I am a Board Certified Appellate Lawyer, rated AV-Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell and have assisted many of you with regard to answering your appellate or attorney’s fees related questions. Appellate attorneys are all about the details, a skill set that should prove useful when I’m working with the OCBA staff to ensure our books are balanced and our budgeting is planned and followed in a manner that supports our Bar both now and into the future. I appreciate your support and look forward to serving you next year.
