  1. Civil rights
    20%
    There are limits to what the State--whether through police, courts, prisons, or government officials--can do to us as citizens. If you believe the State has violated your civil rights, I help evaluate the facts and the law to provide meaningful answers to your questions.

    When you are harmed by a manufacturer or re-seller's products, you are left with a lot of questions, concerns, and mistrust. I help you get answers to what happened, and who is responsible.

    Spangenberg attorneys believe we have one of the best medical systems in the world. But when a loved one is injured in a hospital or by a neglectful or careless doctor, I help them get answers as to what happened, and whether someone is at fault. I help navigate complex legal and insurance issues, and provide realistic advice to my clients to help ensure that their needs are met. I work in partnership with my clients, helping them make informed choices in a complicated time in your life.

    I help people who have been abused, neglected, injured, or otherwise mistreated in a nursing home or other type of elder care facility. I help families cope with injuries or even the loss of a loved one in what should have been a safe, trustworthy environment. Together, we help make our elderly safer by holding such institutions accountable for their misdeeds.

    21 years, 160 cases

I joined the Spangenberg firm as an associate attorney in 2004. I graduated "magna cum laude" from the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in 2002 where I served as managing editor of the Cleveland State Law Review. While an editor, I authored and published "No Pain, No Gain, No Compensation: Exploiting Professional Athletes Through Substandard Medical Care Administered By Team Physicians," 49 Clev. St. L. Rev. 507 (2001). The article focuses on medical malpractice issues in the professional sports industries and earned multiple honors in the field. Prior to joining Spangenberg, I served as law clerk to the late Judge John M. Manos of the United States District Court of the Northern District of Ohio.

 

I am licensed to practice law in Ohio in both state and federal court and am a member of the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Bar am an active member of the Cleveland Academy of Trial Attorneys, the Ohio Association for Justice and the American Association for Justice. The publishers of Law & Politics® magazine named me a "Rising Star" in 2006, 2007, 2009 and, 2010.

 

Since joining the Spangenberg firm, I have successfully litigated and resolved a diverse spectrum of matters on behalf of clients like you. In addition to cases involving personal injury, insurance bad faith and civil rights violations, I focus a significant portion of my practice on business litigation, bankruptcy litigation, and serving as special litigation co-counsel on behalf of debtors and unsecured creditors and on commercial insurance disputes. I also focus a portion of his practice on serving as counsel in various class actions.

 

I'm from the Cleveland area and graduated from Hawken Upper School in 1994. I attended Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where I obtained a B.A. in Earth and Environmental Sciences and graduated with honors. As a Division I college soccer player, I earned widespread recognition as a goalkeeper, including Academic All-American honors. Upon graduation, I played professional soccer with the Cleveland Crunch for three years and was a member of the 1999 N.P.S.L. championship team.

High Regard
Mr. DiCello is very professional, consistently looking for the best outlook for me. I have a hearing impairment which he made others aware of many times. He had excellent people in the firm to assist both of us through the case. My over-all experience was very satisfying.
