Review Tobias Hirshman

About Me

Hi


I'm Toby Hirshman and thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and my law practice.  I've been practicing law for over 33 years.  In the beginning of my career, I enjoyed working for the people of West Virginia doing public interest work.  For the past 29 years, I have been a trial attorney in Cleveland, specializing in mostly medical malpractice.


My wife of 22 years, Ellen, and I also are law partners at Linton & Hirshman.  We have 3 sons, and enjoy spending time with our family, including our 2 dogs, Wally and Macy.


Please call me if there is an issue you wish to discuss.


Thank you!

    I first met Toby Hirshman early in my career and have known him for nearly 20 years now. Toby is one of the finest lawyers I've ever met. More importantly, he is one of the finest people I've ever met. He works tirelessly for his clients, is honest, fair and modest, and has an unparalleled moral compass.
