I have extensive experience in the Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) area, having worked over three decades for a Fortune 50 company.
My work in the EHS area has included auditing for legal compliance and program compliance. I have worked globally, conducting legal compliance audits in over 30 countries worldwide and developing new EHS programs in manufacturing and research and development facilities.
I have conducted EHS training in Spanish, Portuguese and in other languages with the aid of translators in Latin America, Europe and Asia and defended regulatory citations in many US jurisdictions and in several countries in Latin America.
I have provided due diligence assessments for property and business transactions and negotiated regulatory permits for air emissions, water pollution and waste disposal. I have extensive technical experience with management of all EHS media, including troubleshooting compliance problems in wastewater, air and hazardous waste management.
Because I enjoy helping people prevent and solve legal problems, I have operated a private legal practice for the past 19 years, concentrating in domestic relations, estate planning and probate, real estate and small business transactions. I especially love working with families to ensure they can pass their wealth along to those whom they most cherish. I have extensive pro bono experience with Legal Aid of the Bluegrass for low income and elderly people as well as for his church.
I received a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech and earned my law degree from Salmon P. Chase College of Law. I am a member of the Kentucky and Northern Kentucky Bar Associations.
