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 conducting 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.
Because I enjoy helping people prevent and solve their legal problems, I have operated a private legal practice for the past 25 years, concentrating in 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 done extensive pro bono work with Legal Aid of the Bluegrass for low income and elderly people as well as for my church. I received a BS in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech and earned my JD from Salmon P. Chase College of Law. I am a member of the Kentucky and Northern Kentucky Bar Associations.
