He received his juris doctor (JD) degree from the Columbus School of Law at Catholic University of America in 1983, where he continues to serve as an adjunct faculty member, lecturer and principal member of the Board of Visitors.
Paul has over 35 years of healthcare, corporate governance, finance, securities regulation and legal experience.
