About me

Mr. Botnick ensures that each of his clients knows that their trust and confidence in him is extremely valuable and goes the extra mile in order to ensure their satisfaction with their representation. When Mr. Botnick isn't representing his clients throughout the courts of Northeast Ohio he can be found spending quality time with his wife and their two children and dog.
