Ivan was born in Zagreb, Croatia where he spent the first part of my life. His family moved from Croatia to United States during the late 1990’s, and settled in Northeast Ohio. Ivan attended Baldwin Wallace University (then called Baldwin Wallace College), where he earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice . Soon after Ivan began a decade long career working as a probation officer for the Medina Municipal Court. While serving as a probation officer, Ivan was exposed to a variety of situations dealing with criminal and civil laws and procedures.
Even though working as a probation officer has been rewarding, Ivan always knew his true passion was in legal work. He enrolled into the part time evening program at The University of Akron School of Law while continuing to work full time at the Medina Municipal Court. While in law school, Ivan participated in various clinics and programs which sought to provide legal advice and solve various problems for people in the community. Now, he is looking to provide his services and knowledge, gained throughout my diverse background, to people in need of legal assistance.
