He has served in a number of professional positions including: Former President of the Kentucky Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA); Former Treasurer of the Kentucky Chapter of ABOTA; Former Member of the Board of Directors of the Kentucky Justice Association; Master of the Bench in the Potter Stewart Inn of Court in the Southern District of Ohio; Member of the Mass Tort and Class Action Litigation Committee appointed by the Kentucky Supreme Court; and as an Adjunct Professor of Law, Trial Practice, at Salmon P.
