About Us

My Story:

My company is founded on the principle of providing straightforward answers to all questions.


I wanted to form a company that coupled my business experience with the certifications I have earned. The result was forming a company which offers these services:

  • Business valuations are provided for the sale and purchase of businesses, family law (divorce, mediation, and arbitration), gift & estate tax purposes, insurance, and litigation.

  • Asset tracing (forensics) completed for divorce and litigation purposes​​.

  • Fraud prevention focusing on establishing preventative measures and improving controls.

  • Advisory services include (my) third party review of others' business valuations, litigation consulting, and business consulting.

Offering specified services for these areas correlates well to the needs within the northeast Ohio community. I take pride in being compassionate and understanding as we work toward solutions. Finally, I want my clients to feel engaged throughout the process.
