Personal Injury & Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Cleveland, Ohio
February 20, 2002, Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Sarah Crump wrote that attorney Chris Mellino and his former partner “set the standard for big medical malpractice lawsuit payouts in Ohio. In a single year, 1997, they won judgments totaling $30 million.”
In fact, the two made the cover of Ohio Lawyers Weekly‘s supplement “Largest Verdicts & Settlements 1997″ after being awarded the largest verdict in the state. Today, Chris continues that tradition of success with partner Tom Robenalt.
This law firm was founded on the basic premise that clients and their family deserve nothing less than the highest level of individual attention and professionalism. We believe that personal injury and medical malpractice attorneys should answer clients’ questions, not case managers.
Since we don’t advertise, our success depends on word-of-mouth testimonials from clients such as the Radovanics, who wrote, “[We] would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did for us through the ordeal of the trial. You knew we were afraid, and you guided us through the process from beginning to end. You were always available to answer any concerns that we had. During the trial, your expertise, knowledge, and professionalism made you stand out in our eyes as ‘the best’ lawyer out there.”
What Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Cases Do You Accept?
For nearly thirty years, each of us has litigated cases involving medical malpractice, defective products, wrongful death, car and commercial truck accidents, and birth injuries such as shoulder dystocia, Erb’s palsy, and cerebral palsy. We not only have the resources and skill necessary to take on big hospitals, corporations, and their insurance companies with exceptional results, those insurance companies know that we will take a case to court if necessary.
“The insurance companies use that information to evaluate their risk,” Chris Mellino states in his free book. “One of the first questions some adjusters will ask when a serious personal injury claim comes in is, ‘Who is representing the plaintiff?’ Since this information is important to the insurance company, it should be important to you.”

Why Did You Become Personal Injury Lawyers?
Every day, patients place their lives in the hands of physicians, surgeons, nurses, technicians, and hospitals. Those patients trust their doctor to deliver their baby. To ease pain. To diagnose and treat a disease or infection. When that healthcare provider breaches the expected standard of care, patients and their family are left wondering how such a mistake could’ve happened, how they will pay mounting medical bills, and what they should do next.
We’re lifelong Clevelanders. Those injured patients are our friends, neighbors, extended family members, people we attended school with, and, more importantly, people who didn’t deserve what happened to them. With that in mind, we file claims to effect change, to help build a safer health system, and to prevent other innocent people from being injured.
