Continuing Legal Education

I have extensive experience as a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) speaker on the topics of ethics, professionalism, and substance abuse for organizations such as:

  • The Ohio State Bar Association
  • The Supreme Court of Ohio Judicial College
  • The Ohio Attorney General’s Office
  • Ohio Lawyer’s Assistance Program
  • The Supreme Court Board on the Unauthorized Practice of Law;
  • The Ohio Prosecutor’s Association
  • The Stark County Academy of Trial Lawyers
  • Franklin County Trial Lawyer’s Association
  • The Ohio Forum of Estate Planning Attorneys;
  • The Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers; and,
  • National continuing education sponsors such as Lorman, PESI, and NBI.

Additionally, I have presented private in-house CLE programs for numerous law firms and their invited guests. If your firm is interested in hosting your own in-house CLE, please contact me. I will gladly assist you with getting your private CLE program approved for credit with the Supreme Court of Ohio.
