He holds a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience and a master’s degree in experimental psychology and before becoming an attorney, he spent several years engaged in academic research in the areas of psychology and neuroscience with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital & Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati Departments of Psychology, Biology, and Neurology. Drew has published multiple peer-reviewed journal articles and presented at national conferences, including the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting.

Before joining PRWK, Drew litigated multi-party product liability actions involving medical devices and pharmaceuticals, commercial transportation and aviation cases, and complex medical injury lawsuits. In those cases, he managed extensive discovery, performed legal and scientific research, and drafted numerous complex motions, including pre-answer motions to dismiss, discovery motions, summary judgment motions, and motions to exclude the opinions of expert witnesses.
