Additionally, he has advised oil and gas exploration companies on issues related to development of the Utica Shale.

His Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) 121 certificate gives him significant experience in the operating requirements for domestic, flag and supplemental operations. This makes him the ideal attorney for any aviation issue.
