    Education: J.D. University of Cincinnati

    Work Experience: Trial Attorney since 1988

    In June of 2016, I was appointed to the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas, General Division, by Ohio Governor John Kasich.  My over twenty-eight years of experience as a former Hamilton County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney and private sector litigation practitioner have allowed for a smooth and seamless transition to the bench.

    I have been a practicing trial attorney in Hamilton County for 27 years. I began my career as an assistant prosecutor. I have prosecuted cases in Juvenile, Municipal, and Common Pleas courts. In 1993, I went into private practice. As a partner with my brother at the firm Heekin & Heekin, I have appeared before and litigated cases in front of every Common Pleas Judge in Hamilton County since 1991. I have tremendous courtroom experience. I served as the Chairperson of the Judicial Selection Committee for the Hamilton County Republican Party for approximately 5 years.
