Litigation from local court to WIN at Ohio Supreme Court
Paul represented our family (12 households) in a Dormant Minerals litigation brought by surface owners against us, heirs who had inherited oil and gas rights under 83 acre farm, retained by our grandparents in 1953. Dealing with 12 households could have been a nightmare, but Paul recommended we choose one representative to reach consensus among family and be the spokesperson. The family stayed united under this approach. Paul led us through a loss at the county level, a loss at District Court to be reversed in our favor at Ohio Supreme Court. Paul openly communicated with me every step of the way. His communication was easily understood and logical. I believe that aided the family to avoid becoming fractured in viewpoint. A lack of unity would have meant a sure loss at any level.
