Tell us a little bit about your history and how you came to be at Wickens Herzer Panza.
My hometown is Cuyahoga Falls and I graduated from Walsh Jesuit High School in 2002. I went on to Kent State where I earned a B.A. magna cum laude in Philosophy. While at Kent I was a ROTC cadet, student newspaper columnist, president of the College Republicans, and a member of Theta Chi fraternity. After college I served four years on active duty as an officer in the 82nd Airborne Division and served two tours in Iraq and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for meritorious service. After the Army I married my wife Erin (who I met at Kent) and went to law school at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University, where I was Editor-in-Chief of the Cleveland State Law Review. I came to Wickens Herzer Panza by way of Dan Urban, who I met while still in the Army and considering law school. Dan and I kept in touch throughout my time in law school; he gave me an opportunity to clerk at the firm during my third year and, later, extended an offer to join the firm as an attorney upon passing the bar. I graduated from C-M and was admitted to the bar in 2013, and have been working at WHP ever since. I live in Avon Lake with my wife and two boys.
Why did you begin practicing this area of law in the first place?
One summer I had the opportunity to work in the legal department at Eaton Corporation and worked on Eaton's $12 billion acquisition of Cooper Electric. It was an exciting, fast-paced deal with a lot of money at stake and the opportunity to work with some of the top M&A firms in New York and Europe. After that, I knew I wanted business transactional work to be my focus.
Why do/should people want to and choose to work with you?
I feel like I’m a very approachable person who can work with anyone from any background.
What else should we know about you?
I'm a huge Browns, Indians, Cavs, and Notre Dame football fan. I was part of a panel for an MTV news special when I was in college (it's how I met my wife actually). I met Bubba Sparxxx in the Atlanta airport once.
