Overview

He is licensed to practice in Ohio and Colorado, as well as in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, the United States District Court for the District of Colorado, the United States Bankruptcy Appellate Panel for the Tenth Circuit, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.  He is a member of the Colorado and Denver Bar Associations and, until recently, served on the Colorado Mortgage Lenders Association Legislative and Regulatory Affairs Committee.
