Recent Class Notes

Chad McQuade ’99, a wealth management advisor with Northwestern Mutual, was awarded membership to the company’s 2015 forum group, which recognizes individuals for an outstanding year of helping clients plan for and achieve financial security. McQuade, a resident of Elmhurst, Illinois, is affiliated with The McTigue Financial Group based in Chicago and Oak Brook, Illinois. This is the fifth time that McQuade has received this honor. Only 5 percent of Northwestern Mutual’s more than 6,000 financial representatives are invited to attend each year.
Michael Stinziano ‘07, an Ohio state representative, was elected to Columbus City Counsel in November. He is currently completing his fifth year in the Ohio General Assembly and serves as the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee. Since first being elected to the General Assembly in 2010, Stinziano has received numerous honors and awards, including the “Legislator of The Year” award from the Central Ohio Association for Justice in 2014.
Sara Sampson ’97, assistant dean for information services and director of the Law Library at the Moritz College of Law, has co-authored a new edition of Ohio Legal Research with Carolyn Broering-Jacobs \'94 and Katherine L. Hall (who spent many years working in the Moritz Law Library). The book provides a concise introduction to primary authorities and research tools for readers new to legal research or new to researching Ohio law. The updated second edition incorporates recent changes to the major electronic research platforms, while maintaining a process focus that will help the reader no matter which platform is available. Ohio Legal Research includes a fully revised chapter on citation that teaches basic citation form using the major citation manuals and, perhaps most significant to the Ohio practitioner, the recently overhauled Ohio Manual of Citations.
