ABOUT THE AUTHOR
This is the first book by David Miraldi, a civil trial attorney practicing in northeastern Ohio for almost forty years. David grew up in Lorain, Ohio and has lived in Lorain County for most of his life.
After graduating with honors from law school, he returned home to practice with his father and brother. For most of his legal career, he represented everyday people in battles against insurance companies and large corporations.
Writing and reading have always been important parts of his life. Some of his favorite authors include Ian McEwan, Ann Patchett, Pat Conroy, fellow Lorain native, Toni Morrison, David McCullough, James Lee Burke, Abraham Verghese, John Updike, and Richard Ford.
He has always loved to write. His home office is filled with volumes of journals detailing events in his family’s life. As a lawyer, he enjoyed writing briefs and struggling to find the right words to be persuasive with trial and appellate judges. Now semi-retired, he finally has the time to take on more significant writing projects. The Edge of Innocence is the first book in a series involving legal themes.
Besides writing, David also finds creative expression through photography and playing the piano. His photographs are frequently exhibited locally with the sales proceeds donated to charity. His tastes in piano range from classical to ragtime to popular music. He continues to compose music for the piano, including a collection of classical ragtime pieces. He is also an avid tennis player and enjoys bicycling, swimming, and gardening.
David and his wife, Leslee, also an attorney, reside in Avon, Ohio and have three adult children.
