Clint is first and foremost a father and husband. He and his wife, their three children, and their dog Lyla, are long-time residents of Worthington, Ohio. Clint and his family enjoy spending quality time together, attending community and school events, participating in local sports programs, and hanging out with their wonderful family and friends.
Clint graduated Cum Laude from Indiana University, Bloomington, IN in 1995 with a B.A. in Telecommunications and a minor concentration in Theater.  After college, he worked for Enterprise Rent-A-Car Company in Chicago, IL, Savannah, GA, and in his home state of South Carolina. Clint's time with Enterprise impressed upon him the value of hard work and taught him the importance of effectively managing people.
In 2001, Clint graduated Cum Laude from The Valparaiso University School of Law in Valparaiso, IN, and thereafter immediately went to work for the law firm of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP in Chicago. During his six years with Hinshaw, Clint's practice focused on defending companies and individuals in all forms of litigation with an emphasis on representing insurance companies in insurance coverage disputes. In 2007, Clint and his then growing family relocated to Central Ohio where he went to work for the firm of Chester Wilcox & Saxbe, LLP.  There, he continued to hone his litigation skills in Ohio's state and federal courts. 
Most recently, Clint served as in-house counsel and Associate General Counsel at Crawford Hoying, Ltd., a leading real estate development and management company in Central Ohio. His career at Crawford Hoying included handling all aspects of the company's legal work from real estate development, sales, purchases, and leasing to corporate litigation and contracting matters, employment-related issues, and risk management.
