Practice Description

I describe myself as a generalist. I retired from the Court of Appeals of Ohio January 31, 2009. My mediation experience to date has been mediating cases already pending in the court of appeals or the court of common pleas (trial court.) My interest is in mediating disputes early enough to keep them out of the court system and in identifying and mediating, in the early stages of litigation, those cases that lend themselves to mediation in order to avoid the time, expense, and uncertainty of full blown litigation.


I have served as a judge of the Dayton Municipal Court (1976-1977), judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Montgomery County (1977-1985), and judge of the Court of Appeals of Ohio (1985-2009.) I have served as the president of the Dayton Bar Association, Chairman of the Ohio Judicial Conference, and Chief Justice of the Courts of Appeals of Ohio. I taught as an adjunct professor of law at the University of Dayton School of Law for twenty years. I am currently a member of the rosters of the Montgomery County Common Pleas Court, General Division, Mediation Program and of the National Arbitration Forum.

Education / Training

Georgetown University, Washington, D.C., A.B. 1964; J.D.1967.Capital University, Columbus,Ohio: two forty hour mediation courses.
