About me

Arthur is the Managing Member of Elk & Elk in Cleveland, Ohio. As an Ohio personal injury lawyer and medical malpractice lawyer, he has represented medical malpractice and wrongful death victims for almost five decades. Art, just two years out of law school, was elected Ashland Ohio's County Prosecuting Attorney for two successive four-year terms. After having been the youngest prosecuting attorney in the state of Ohio, Art chose to leave the public sector and enter the private practice of law. Art has found great satisfaction in providing injury victims with quality legal services in all major areas of injury law.

When Art is not representing the rights of injury victims, he spends time with his wife and four children.
