I’m one of the few (approximately 100) attorneys in Ohio designated as a Certified Family Law Specialist by the Ohio State Bar Association. I am a member of the Collaborative Lawyers of Cincinnati, the Southwest Ohio Collaborative Law Association in Warren County, the Collaborative Family Law Association of Butler County and the International Association of Collaborative Professionals. Currently, 11 of the Certified Specialists in Ohio are located in Hamilton County; I am the only Certified Specialist with an office in the Butler/Warren county area.
I served as the Chair of the Cincinnati Academy of Collaborative Professionals (CACP) from 2006 to 2008. The Academy gave me a wonderful plaque that quotes Mohandas Gandhi: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” It was presented to honor my service in changing Collaborative Law Practice in Cincinnati.
