Leaders in litigation and employment law, with a wide variety of insurance and human resources practice areas.

The firm’s recent success and growth has stemmed from our litigation practice. When other firms are quick to settle or hesitate to take on cases, our attorneys rise to the challenge and thrive in the courtroom. For a listing of our recent trial successes, click here.

FDAR is committed to providing high-quality, affordable legal services. Our private sector client base includes publicly traded and privately held companies in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, food processing and distribution, shipping, hotel, janitorial, finance, development, milling and sales.

FDAR also represents well over two hundred public sector clients throughout the State of Ohio, including municipalities, boards, commissions, agencies, and office-holders across the state. Our client base varies from state office-holders to rural townships, from large metropolitan cities to villages, and from rural areas to the suburbs. FDAR’s broad understanding of public sector law creates a more thorough and efficient representation for clients.

Our attorneys serve leadership roles in, and are active members of, their churches and temples. They volunteer in a wide variety of community activities including public and private school programs, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, assisted living communities, numerous youth activities, humane societies, museums, art galleries and community centers. This diversity allows us to successfully interact with a wide range of individuals as well as to analyze and address legal issues and problems from many perspectives.
