Practice of Law now limited to service as mediator in civil matters other than domestic relations.


As a partner in the Northern Kentucky law firm of Busald, Funk, Zevely, P.S.C., I represented plaintiffs in personal injury, medical malpractice, FELA and product liability for over 14 years, and also defended cases for insurance companies and several Kentucky counties. Subsequently, I have worked in-house for The Cincinnati Insurance Company for 11 years defending and trying lawsuits for doctors, dentists, small businesses and individuals. During the last 25 years I have participated as an attorney representing my clients in mediation and negotiation of hundreds of cases and claims. I have also completed intensive mediation training at the Capitol University Law School in Columbus, Ohio.
