You Need a Lawyer. You Want Erb Legal

Hiring a lawyer is probably the last thing you want to do. But when it’s time to fight, choose an attorney who can win.

Without an experienced lawyer, you’re at a disadvantage when complicated legal issues arise in Portage County. From divorce to criminal charges and everything in between, that’s where the tough-as-nails attorneys Thomas L. Erb Jr. and Wesley C. Buchanan can help.

As award-winning litigators and successful trial attorneys, Tom and Wesley have spent more than a decade getting results across Northeast Ohio but saw the residents of Ravenna, Aurora, Kent, Streetsboro, and all the villages and townships of Portage County, Ohio, lacked the quality legal representation they deserved. They formed Erb Legal to speak for and stand with you by offering the attention you expect, the professionalism you demand, and the favorable results you need.
