About me

Attorney Staten T. Middleton was born, raised, and educated in the Bowling Green community.  After receiving his undergraduate degree from Bowling Green State University, he attended the University of Michigan Law School and attained his Juris Doctorate degree from Vermont Law School.  Upon graduation, Staten went into legal practice with his father as a third-generation member of the team of legal professionals at Middleton Law Offices.  He has been practicing in the Bowling Green community and has been advising families in the area since 1993.

With a zeal for learning and advancing his professional career, Staten regularly exceeds the required continuing legal education requirements and has been included in the Ohio Bar College.  His membership in professional associations includes the Ohio State Bar Association and the Toledo Estate Planning Council.  For his knowledge, skill, and expertise as a lawyer, he has received an exceptional ranking from Martindale-Hubble peer review.

Outside the office, Staten is active in the community, including his determined work to support the efforts of the Habitat for Humanity of Wood County.  He speaks regularly with local groups concerning estate planning and additionally, dedicates much of his available time to serving on local non-profit boards, including Habitat for Humanity and the local Bowling Green Curling Club.  His thirst for adventure takes him to local waterways where he enjoys sailing, kayak or to the ice where he participates in local curling events and leagues.
