Dennis R. Lansdowne joined Spangenberg Shibley & Liber in 1985. Five years later, he made partner.
Dennis has represented individuals in catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases; he has also represented large corporations.
"My background and training have allowed me to pursue cases for both people and businesses that have suffered harm. It is an interesting and exciting practice," he says.
Dennis graduated summa cum laude from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, where he was a member of the Law Review. Cleveland-Marshall will recognize Dennis as Alumnus of the Year in 2013.
After graduating from C-M, he served as law clerk to the Honorable Robert B. Krupansky at both the Northern District of Ohio and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
"Working in both the trial and appellate courts gave me a unique opportunity to see the litigation process, and I was fortunate to observe many fine lawyers from Ohio and other parts of the country. I knew I wanted to devote myself to that process and practice at the highest level," Dennis says.
After his clerkships, Dennis joined Jones Day as an associate. While there, he concentrated on commercial litigation, representing corporations in insurance, product liability, securities, and contract disputes.
At Spangenberg, Dennis has represented hundreds of people who were seriously injured or lost a loved one due to the negligence of a doctor, nurse, nursing home or other healthcare provider. He is well-known for being able to make complex medicine easy for a jury to understand.
His passion about medical negligence led him to create and teach a course on the subject for several years at Cleveland-Marshall.
