LEADERS IN LITIGATION

Serving the needs of Employers, Insurance carriers, their insureds, Businesses, and individuals throughout Ohio. From Lake Erie to the Ohio River, we handle worker’s compensation and insurance litigation in all 88 counties, the Ohio Supreme Court, and all Federal Courts in Ohio.

We are experienced. All of our attorneys have more than 22 years of experience and the legal knowledge to handle customary areas of civil litigation without basic research and we come prepared.  We don’t hire newly minted attorneys to handle your cases; we let them get their experience elsewhere.

We don’t bill for the sake of billing. 

We only put time on a file for activity which will benefit the client.

ABOUT US

Our mission is to protect the rights of defendants in civil suits and workers’ compensations cases to make sure that our clients do not pay for injuries or losses which are not their responsibility.

We consider the cost of an activity and the potential benefit before engaging in defense activities. We will never recommend an action when the cost of the activity outweighs the anticipated benefit of the activity.
