Anna Petronzio

About Me

Anna M. Petronzio, who co-founded the firm in 1993, is a graduate of the Catholic University of America (B.A.1990), John Carroll University (M.A. 1999) and Suffolk University Law School (J.D. 1993). She concentrates her practice in the areas of Family Law, Estate Planning, and Probate administration and litigation.


Anna is a member of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar and Geauga County Bar, and has been admitted to the Bars of the State of Ohio and the United States Supreme Court. Anna practices in Cuyahoga, Geauga, and Lake counties.


With Petronzio Schneier Co., LPA, you may choose between a traditional court-directed divorce and alternative resolution methods, such as Collaborative Divorce and mediation. Anna is a co-founder of Cleveland Academy of Collaborative Professionals, a non-profit organization which educates attorneys and promotes non-traditional alternatives to the resolution of family law matters. Anna is a certified divorce mediator. Her goal will be to resolve your divorce or other family law issues, such as child custody and visitation or child and spousal support, with minimum stress to you and your family. She represents clients in a variety of family law matters, including dissolution of marriage, divorce, custody and premarital agreements.


At Petronzio Schneier Co., LPA, we are committed to providing family law services that will meet your family’s legal needs, even as your family changes over the years. After all, family law issues are not just about resolving your legal issues today. Anna will strive to help you in every way to maintain the integrity of your family during an emotional and legal process, and will be with you as you build a solid foundation upon which you can resume your life.


Estate Planning consists of putting your personal and financial affairs in order in contemplation of your death. Anna can prepare a plan that will be right for you and will provide for your loved ones as you direct. These services include all types of Wills and various types of Trusts, including simple Wills, Living Wills, Power of Attorney, Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts, and Living Trusts. Many people who think they need expensive, complicated Trusts really only need a simple, inexpensive Will. Anna welcomes the opportunity to discuss your Estate Planning goals with you.


Probate and estate administration services include assisting your loved ones in carrying out your wishes when that time arrives and assisting and advising the Executor and Trustee as to their duties. It is Anna’s goal to reduce the burden of administering an estate to those grieving over the loss of a friend or family member. Anna is also experienced in representing families who have issues concerning estates in probate court or where an action needs to be brought in probate court.
