    Christopher has built a solid reputation with clients dealing with difficult personal issues and momentous life decisions by utilizing a not-so-novel method: truly listening to fully understand their needs and deepest concerns. At no time is this perhaps more important than when creating Wills, Living Will Declarations, and Durable Healthcare Powers of Attorney. Christopher's clients often rely upon his attentiveness and experience in these areas when creating or updating these crucial documents.

    Christopher graduated from Denison University with a B.A. in Political Science. During his time at Denison, he interned in the Washington, D.C. office of United States Senator Richard G. Lugar (IN). Christopher received his law degree from the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Cleveland State University, where he was a member of the Jessup Moot Court team. During both college and law school, Christopher spent time in Geneva, Switzerland, and London, England studying foreign affairs and international human rights.

    Since 2007, he has operated as a sole practitioner to provide his clients with the individual attention that you simply cannot receive at larger firms.
