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.

Supreme Court Affirms Punitive Damages Only Available for Torts

In a recent case, Lucarell v. Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, 2018-Ohio-15, the Ohio Supreme Court affirmed that punitive damages are only available as an award for tort claims under Ohio law.
