UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital vs. CareSource, 8th District No. 106151, 2018-Ohio-2839: successfully briefed and argued that because CareSource was not a signatory to the facility participation agreement between client and United HealthCare, arbitration could not be compelled on a coverage dispute between CareSource and United HealthCare and instead the court could determine the matter based on the certificate of coverage.

University Hospitals Health Systems, 11th District No. 2018-L-110, 2019-Ohio-1411: successfully briefed and argued that the trial court’s disqualification of patients’ counsel without a hearing was appropriate where the attorney was the patients’ husband and son respectively and had made himself a necessary witness in the matter.
