Excellent all-around business lawyer
Ezio Listati is a solid all-around business attorney. From commercial litigation to real estate, his judgment and practical approach to solving legal problems makes him a real asset to my company. He strikes the right balance -- he doesn't overlitigate (or overcharge), but at the same time he's detail-oriented and committed to helping you solve your issue.

Excellent Choice for Commercial Disputes
Ezio is a very practical, solution-oriented lawyer. My company has used Ezio on two business disputes in Cleveland. He recognizes what is important to business clients and works diligently to deliver results. We will use him again. Highly recommended.

Co-Defendant's Counsel in Civil Litigation
Mr. Listati and I each represented separate defendants in the same lawsuit. Mr. Listati demonstrated extensive knowledge, diligence, professionalism, and effective advocacy on behalf of his client throughout the litigation.
