She also counsels clients on corporate matters, entity structure and formation, real estate issues and contract negotiations.

Veronica’s experience as a law clerk at the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, Probate Division and the Court of Appeals of Ohio, Eighth Appellate District, has given her a unique insight into the judicial system and advocacy for our clients.
