I have been engaged in the private practice of law since returning to Columbus from military service in 1972. During most of that time I practiced with the firm of Britt, Campbell, Nagel and Sproat. At one time three of the four of us were members of the collaborative practice group now called COACDP. The firm dissolved a few years ago when one partner had to retire with serious medical problems, but the four of us are still good friends and cooperate to take care of legal matters for 35 years of past clients. I am currently in a solo practice sharing space with a couple of other collaboratively trained lawyers.

I have been for many years a member of the Ohio Supreme Court's Admissions Committee, interviewing young law graduates who plan the take the Ohio Bar Exam on behalf of the Court. I have also served on the Columbus Bar Association's Judicial Screening Committee for one term.

For several years I wrote and edited the chapter on Enforcement of Child Support and Spousal Support in Bank's Baldwin's Domestic Relations Law manual, at the behest of my colleague Beatrice K. Sowald.

Currently I am working to bring the local Probate Law bar into the collaborative law arena. My colleagues Elaine Buck and Rosemary Pomeroy have hosted a series of meetings on that topic in the last year.

AREAS OF PRACTICE: Domestic Relations and Probate

PROFESSIONAL LICENSES: Licensed in Ohio since 1971; admitted to the Ohio Bar, the US District Court for the Southern District of Ohio and the US 6th Circuit Court of Appeals

PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION: Ohio State University College of Law, cum laude 1970

UNDERGRADUATE EDUCATION: Ohio State University, B.A. cum laude 1968

I have been a member of the Central Ohio Academy of Collaborative Divorce Professionals since it was founded in the 1990's, and was chair of the group for one term early on in the development of collaborative family law practice in Central Ohio. More recently I have written a series of articles for the Ohio Bar Association on the subject of collaborative family law and collaborative practice in probate court, which the OBA then made available to Ohio newspapers.

I am married with two adult sons; my wife and I have lived in the historic Victorian Village neighborhood since the early 1980's. I am a member of Sierra Club and also a local RC soaring club. Radio control soaring is the perfect lawyer sport: you have to be good with hot air, and you have to be comfortable spending most of your time going around in circles. Collaborative family law is the exception to that.
