Successful Representation

Paul’s knowledge of the law and his ability to think strategically are what sets him apart. Always advocating in his clients’ best interest, he’s extremely skilled at keeping clients out of the courtroom. When conflict is inevitable, this experienced litigator continually delivers results at the federal, state, appellate and administrative levels.

While in school, Paul interned with the Ohio House of Representatives. Before joining Fishel Hass Kim Albrecht Downey LLP in 2006, he worked as an Assistant Attorney General in the Education Section for the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.

On the Personal Side

Paul enjoys spending time with his wife and three kids.
