about The Firm

The Lawyers You Seriously Need

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 Akron or anywhere in Ohio can upend your life. That’s where hard-hitting attorneys like Thomas L. Erb Jr. and Wesley C. Buchanan come in.

We are not the lawyers you’re used to. Other firms talk big, but we let our record in court and years of experience speak for themselves. We are not shy about our ability to resolve your divorce or custody case, and we’re ready to stand up so a criminal charge doesn’t follow you forever.
