  • Michael H. Gruhin

    I endorse John Bucalo as an Ohio Workers' Compensation attorney. I've known him for years, on both a personal and professional level. John is a very knowledgeable, professional, dedicated, and hard working attorney who cares about his clients. John and I both represent injured workers and we are active in the Ohio Association for Justice's Workers' Compensation section and as members of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association Workers' Compensation section. When we get together to discuss the nuances of Ohio Workers' Compensation, it's clear that he knows what he's talking about. John is a Board Certified Workers' Comp Attorney who has been successfully representing injured workers for years.

  • Kurt Matthew Young

    John was my successor at a Cleveland area law firm. He is very highly skilled, compassionate and an excellent advocate for the injured disabled. He is one of a handful of attorneys who cover hearings for our office. I enthusiastically endorse John.
