about The Firm

You Need a Lawyer. Make It Us.

No one wants to hire a lawyer. But if you’re in a fight - fight to win.

Unless you have support and advice from a capable attorney, a legal issue in Northeast Ohio can upend your life. That’s where attorneys like Thomas L. Erb Jr. and Wesley C. Buchanan come in.

We are not the lawyers you’re used to. Other area law firms like to talk big, but our record in court and years of experience speak for themselves. We are not shy about our ability to resolve the most complex divorce or custody case, and we’re eager to stand up to a criminal charge if you’re record is on the line.
