Review David Zoll

About Me

I am the founding partner of the law firm of Zoll, Kranz & Borgess, LLC, with a practice in civil litigation. In recent years my practice has focused on representing injured people in pharmaceutical and medical device cases and complex securities and anti-trust matters.  I have built my practice and reputation by seeking justice on behalf of the injured against the powerful.


I am certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (“NBTA”) as a Civil Trial Advocate.

The National Board of Trial Advocacy is authorized by the Ohio Supreme Court to certify specialists in the field of trial advocacy. I am also on the Board of Examiners of the NBTA. I wrote and graded the Commercial Law (2005), Civil Ethics (2007, 2009, 2010) and Evidence (2008) questions for the nationwide examinations for board certification.

I am a designated “Ohio Super Lawyer” and listed as one of the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” by the American Trial Lawyers Association.

I am admitted to the bars of the United States Supreme Court, the Sixth and Seventh Federal Circuit Courts of Appeals, the Federal District Courts of Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Arkansas, and the United States Tax Court, as well as the Ohio Supreme Court. I have been a member of the American Association for Justice since 1981, and is a member of the Ohio Association for Justice as well as the Toledo and Ohio Bar Associations.  I am a 33 year “Stalwart” and member of the Leaders’ Forum of the AAJ.

I have spoken before the American Association of Justice, the Ohio State Bar Association, Ohio Academy of Trial Lawyers, Lucas County Bar Association, Toledo Bar Association, Construction Financial Managers Association, Ohio Society of CPA’s, Association of General Contractors and at numerous continuing education seminars.

I have handled a number of cases before the Ohio Supreme Court, including the landmark case of Anderson v. Ceccardi, 6 Ohio St.3d 110, 451 N.E.2d 780 (Ohio 1983), in which the doctrine of assumption of the risk was merged into the statutory tort scheme of comparative fault.
