We are your lawyers for complex, high-stakes cases.
If you’re looking for the type of lawyers most likely to receive a “most liked by opponents award,” look elsewhere. We’re not here to make friends with opposing counsel or be part of “the club.”
WE’RE HERE TO DOMINATE THE LEGAL BATTLEFIELD FOR OUR CLIENTS. THAT’S WHO IS IN OUR CLUB.
Our aggressive, client-centered approach doesn’t get us invited to lawyer parties, but we don’t mind. Those parties are boring anyway. If you are looking for the type of lawyers with dusty shelves of law books, look elsewhere. We are not beholden to tradition.
We are innovators both in how we run our law firm and how we make our legal arguments. As a result, we have created a highly efficient litigation machine that wins for our clients.
We’ve also achieved numerous precedent-setting legal decisions because we have the guts and smarts to look at old laws in new ways. If a law firm’s abstract art logo or the typical “initials” logo appeals to you, look elsewhere. Our logo is a raven. Ravens are smart and ominous, like us.

Our wage and hour practice encompasses all federal and Ohio laws. Claims include unpaid wages or unpaid overtime, worker misclassification, tip violations, un- or under-reimbursed expenses, and other paycheck issues.
We’ve represented thousands of delivery drivers who were under-reimbursed for expenses. We’ve successfully argued that employers must reimburse drivers at the IRS mileage rate (about $.58 per mile) or pay their actual expenses. Because so few employers actually do either, many delivery drivers are being underpaid.Learn About PIZZA DELIVERY DRIVER
We represent restaurant employees like waiters, waitresses, bartenders, and other service industry workers in unpaid wage claims. Restaurants are common violators of wage and hour laws, usually, because they do not follow all of the rules to pay workers tipped minimum wage.Learn About RESTAURANT WORKER &
Some companies require employees to attend mandatory training time. This seems especially prevalent in the growing fitness instructor industry. In most cases, employees must be paid for training time.Learn About UNPAID TRAINING
Mediation can be a great way to resolve disputes. However, typical mediation leaves much to be desired. After representing numerous clients in multi-million dollar mediations, we’ve developed a better way to mediate. Our proprietary mediation system blows traditional mediation out of the water.Learn About PROPRIETARY MEDIATION
If you are worried about being able to afford our services, don’t be. For almost all of our clients—especially the employees we usually represent—we only get paid when we recover money for them. This “contingent fee” arrangement lets us represent individuals who could not ordinarily afford top-notch lawyers. It also puts our financial interests in line with your own.
It is also important to know that most of the laws we work with, including the Fair Labor Standards Act, allow us to recover our fees and costs from your employer. Because of this, we can take on both the big and small cases.
