What We Offer
Substance

The law is not a stagnant set of rules, but an ever-evolving body of principles that are applied differently to different situations. And the people who make decisions that affect your legal rights - judges and juries - bring with them views that have been formed by experiences in everyday life about everyday matters.

Being an effective advocate requires a combination of intelligence, thorough preparation, competitive spirit, and healthy appreciation of the human condition.

As reflected in individual attorney biographies, our lawyers have earned the respect of their peers and enjoy distinguished reputations in the community. But we have traveled different paths to excellence. We include former prosecutors, public defenders, and many who were trained at some of the nation’s largest law firms. In our younger days we waited tables, tended bar, worked on assembly lines, lifeguarded, and sold insurance. Among us are graduates of the most prestigious colleges and law schools in the country and others from places of lesser renown. Our diverse perspectives and extensive experience as advocates allow us to work effectively with clients to shape strategies and positions that make sense to real people in the real world.

We will apply our collective talents, experiences, and achievements to find practical solutions to your problems.

Computer-Aided Design Does Not Make You a Copyright Cad

Architects, designers and developers in the age of computer-aided design (CAD) are understandably uncertain about copyright protection for architectural plans, criteria drawings, layouts and other instruments of service. A recent decision out of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio found that copyright infringement did not arise from layering another architect's prototype plans into a CAD file and using them as part of a "tool kit" to create new architectural plans because the new plans were not shown to be substantially similar to the prototype plans....
