About me

Mr. Dickson represents individuals and families in cases involving serious injury and wrongful death throughout Ohio, including cases involving: nursing home abuse and neglect, cases against assisted living facilities, catastrophic automobile collisions, sexual assault, medical malpractice, legal malpractice, products liability, class actions, inadequate security and disputes about insurance coverage.


On February 4, 2009, Mr. Dickson became one of only two Ohio nursing home neglect lawyers to ever argue a case involving the rights of Nursing Home residents before the Ohio Supreme Court. There has been only one other case argued before the Ohio Supreme Court which dealt with the issue of the rights of nursing home residents. Mr. Dickson wrote the Amicus Curiae Brief that was filed with the Ohio Supreme Court, at the request of the Ohio Association for Justice, in that case.
