In 2012, he was selected by The National Trial Lawyers as one of the Top 40 Under 40 Trial Lawyers in Ohio and named by Crain’s Cleveland Business to its 40 Under 40 list of business and community leaders in Northeast Ohio. He has been designated as a Rising Star in Ohio by Super Lawyers® since 2007 and has repeatedly been named one of Ohio's Leading Lawyers by Inside Business. He is a lifetime member in both the Million Dollar and Multimillion Dollar Advocates Forum.
