Why did you decide to be a solo attorney participating in Columbus Bar inc?
The support and resources available to Columbus Bar inc. participants provide an incomparable advantage for new attorneys seeking to lay the foundations for a successful solo practice. I am extremely grateful to the Columbus Bar Association, the Columbus Bar Foundation, and program sponsors for this opportunity.
What area(s) of law does your solo practice focus on?
Commercial, criminal, estate planning, and family law.
What made you choose your primary area of law?
Although I realize my practice may become more focused in the future, I am starting a general practice because I want to gain experience in broad range of legal areas, to work with a wide variety of people, and to discover which areas I find the most rewarding.
What will make your law firm unique?
I’m not sure how unique it will be, but I intend to grow a practice where clients will feel they have gotten quality personal service at a good value.
Summary of previous employment.
Before enrolling in law school, I worked as a staff writer for The Daily Reporter and ThisWeek Community Newspapers. Throughout law school and since graduating, I served as a law clerk in the Franklin County Municipal Court’s legal research department.
Describe your personal interests and hobbies.
When not working, I enjoy running, bowling, and playing guitar in local band (The Intercontinental Champs). These days, I am spending time with my lovely wife Dilara, preparing for the July arrival of our first child.
