The Help You Need When You Need It Most
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Suspension stayed means the attorney has been suspended, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements.
John’s comment: “I received a six-month stayed suspension for the period 12/3/08 through 5/3/09 in the case of Cuyahoga Bar Assn v. Drain. The disciplinary violation was neglect of a client matter for failing to file a dental malpractice within the statute of limitations.”

I retained Mr. Drain’s services for a civil case. On the first motion he filed, the judge commented that he rarely granted that kid of motion because “most attorneys don’t know how to proceed properly. Mr. Drain however, did it right “. The judge granted that important motion. Later on, I have seen Mr. Drain succeed were others fail. I have no hesitation recommending him to anyone.

.I have worked with Attorney's for on and off for over 14 years and I have found Michael Drain to be one of the most honest, trust worthy and knowledgeable Attorneys here in northeast Ohio. He always returns all phone calls, my billing is NOT inflated and his advice and guidance is not only knowledge but logical. Michael weights out the situation and evaluates it properly before giving you his legal advice.
