Attorney Casey Cerreta-Cramer is the owner and creator of Cramer Law Firm LTD.  Attorney Cramer formed a law firm which focuses on compassion for its clients.  

 

 In 2015, Attorney Cramer was recognized for her commitment to domestic relations clients and was awarded "Top 10 Under 40" by the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys. "The National Academy of Family Law Attorneys is an organization devoted to recognizing the top family law attorneys in the nation. With over a million attorneys in the United States, choosing the best lawyer is difficult. However, through a stringent selection process, the NAFLA awards the best family law attorneys in each state with our most prestigious honor of being named "TOP 10". The very few attorneys (less than 1%) that are good enough to make our list have demonstrated an extraordinary amount of knowledge, skill, experience, expertise and success in their practice of family law.

The attorneys that make our list have to first be nominated by a licensed practicing attorney. Second, our research staff verifies that they meet the minimum requirements of membership. Then they have to be one of 50 attorneys chosen to advance to the final selection stage by our processing committee. And, finally they have to be selected by our Board of Governors as the "TOP 10". We know it is a tough process but we wouldn't have it any other way."

 

In 2014, Attorney Cramer was recognized for her commitment to clients and was awarded "Top 40 Under 40" by the National Trial Lawyers.  "Membership into The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 under 40 is by invitation only and is extended exclusively to those trial lawyers practicing civil plaintiff and/or criminal defense law. Invitees must exemplify superior qualifications, trial results, and leadership as a young lawyer under the age of 40. Selection is based on a thorough multi-phase process which includes peer nominations combined with third-party research." from National Trial Lawyers, Top 40 Under 40.

 

Attorney Cramer gained 4 years of legal experience in Domestic Relations and Criminal Defense while working for law firms under the guidance of well-known Ohio attorneys.  During her employment with Weisenburger Law Offices, Attorney Cramer had the opportunity of defending criminals charged with Murder, Rape, and many other felonies and misdemeanors.  She began her Domestic Relations practice at Weisenburger Law Offices as well, representing clients with Child Custody, Divorce and Dissolution cases.  Attorney Cramer was an associate of The Jeffery S. Watson Law Firm where she practiced Criminal Defense and Worker's Compensation law.  

 

Attorney Cramer is a graduate of The University of Toledo where she received her Juris Doctor from the College of Law and a Bachelor's of Science in Criminal Justice with a Minor in Forensic Science Investigation. 

 

In her free time, Attorney Cramer is active in her local community.  She is a member of the Akron Bar Association where she is the chair of the Foundation Gala fundraising event and a member of the inaugural class of the ABA's Leadership Academy. Attorney Cramer is a member of the local alumni chapter of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority.  In addition, Attorney Cramer proudly supports NAMI (National Alliance of Mental Illness) as well as The Safe Zone Project (LGBTQ awareness).

Attorney Ceretta Review
Attorney Cerreta is very professional. She responds to you in a timely manner and takes your best interest into account to get what you want/deserve. I have had nothing but positive experience in working with her. I highly recommend Attorney Cerreta.

This is the lawyer that you want on your side!
I was facing serious criminal charges for 6 month jai time. Casey took on my case at the last minute. She kept me well informed and worked hard to protect me. At the beginning, I was very upset, but it was her confidence that calmed me down. On the day of the final trial, she did a fantastic job in front of judge and was very well prepared, the case was dismissed, thanks to her hard work. She is a lawyer who truly cares about the people she represents. I highly recommend Casey!

HIGHLY RECCOMEND
I HIRED CASEY TO TAKE CARE OF AN EXPUNGEMENT FOR ME. SHE WAS THOROUGH, THOUGHTFUL AND VERY HELPFUL. SHE WAS WELL-KNOWN AND HIGHLY REGARDED BY THE STAFF AT THE STOW COURTHOUSE. I WOULD HIGHLY RECCOMEND HER.

I would recommend!
She handled a case for my juvenile son and we were very pleased with the outcome, which was not guilty. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We met with her on many occasions and she was up front and explained everything from the very beginning.

Very happy with Ms. Cerreta!
I was facing very serious felony drug charges and requested a public defender. After spending almost a week in jail and not speaking to any attorney I met my court appointed counsel the day of my pre-trial. Ms. Cerreta was a complete professional from the time she introduced herself. She was direct and to the point gathering information about my case. She didn't give me any false hopes of what to expect or what would happen, she explained a very complicated situation to me in a manner that made me feel better about the proceedings...but honestly... I was still scared and skeptical. Then Ms. Cerreta went to work. In a short time she had me in front of the judge and prosecutor and I was 100% satisfied with the results Ms. Cerreta had negotiated for me. The only reason I have not rated her all 5 stars is because I have only had the limited dealings with her. But if you are in need of a zealous up and coming defense attorney....5 stars all around!!
