The founding member of The DiCello Law Firm, Robert J. DiCello went to college at John Carroll University, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1966. While working as a safety director for US Steel, Corp., he attended the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in the evenings. Mr. DiCello was published in the Cleveland-Marshall Law Review in 1969.
In 1971, Robert graduated from law school, receiving the degree of Juris Doctorate, and was admitted to the Ohio State Bar Association. Shortly thereafter, Mr. DiCello served as Assistant Prosecutor for the Office of the Lake County Prosecutor in Lake County, Ohio. In 1972 he was admitted to the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio and to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1977.
Mr. DiCello has an impressive list of seven figure (or more) verdicts and settlements for his clients.
Robert lives in Kirtland, Hills, Ohio, with his wife, Christine. They have been married for 42 years. He has three children, Robert F. DiCello, Mark A. DiCello, and Anne (Thacker) and six grandchildren.
Attorney DiCello exemplifies the very best attributes of an active attorney and displays a high level of professionalism, confidence and skill we should all aspire to. Honesty, dedication and a love of the law, which means. giving back to others who lack our understanding of the law and a benefit from our inherent desire to provide solutions to problems. The thousands years of combined legal experience of professionals activity participating in this forum represent some of the very best of our profession, which is after all, at its base is desire to help those in need. This Attorneyâ€™s experience and knowledge, I believe, demonstrates that there is a desire to provide accurate advice and obtain appropriate results for clients. Most importantly, this Attorney is willing to help complete strangers (as is the case in this forum) with their legal problems. As a former Staff Attorney I encountered Mr. DiCello multiple time and highly endorse him.
