a Flexibility in defining the role

Acting as local counsel, we will report to counsel or a corporate client. We provide regular reports and welcome client input. In Ohio, many courts, including the federal courts, and the common pleas courts of the largest counties, Cuyahoga (Cleveland), Franklin (Columbus) and Hamilton (Cincinnati) have electronic filing, so it is easy to communicate with up to the minute developments in a case.
It is also easy to combine appearances, so that the electronic filing systems include the host attorney and/or client on all filings in real time.
We are pleased to assist on a single matter, or on a continuing basis if there are continuing needs.
