The Project

I provide legal services to Ohio’s low-income, senior veterans. By focusing on this narrow population of veterans, I am able to explore a wide range of issues including consumer, healthcare, housing, and public benefits law. My work is driven by the client, not the subject matter. I assist clients on various levels, from short-term advice through Pro Seniors’ statewide hotline to long-term representation through administrative appeals.

Serving Ohio’s senior population has been a growing passion of mine. Seniors deserve to live in dignity, which is oftentimes difficult while healthcare and financial difficulties increase and societal assistance and respect decrease. Working with Pro Seniors’ veteran clients is helping me understand more about the needs of our seniors.
