Meet Our Attorneys

Choosing the right firm to represent you in business and personal matters are critical to achieving the best possible outcome. At Dworken & Bernstein our attorneys share a dedication to personal integrity and ethical practice.  Each works to build trusting relationships while strategically representing their client’s interests.  By getting to know you, your family and your business, our attorneys are in a position to help you manage legal issues as they come up.

Our Law Team is Here for You

The days when a solo practitioner was able to skillfully provide legal representation in all areas of law are long gone. Our law team represents clients in a wide spectrum of personal, professional, corporate and communal matters.  Often a legal issue touches on more than a single area of law.  With over thirty skilled attorneys in our two northeast Ohio offices, there is always expertise on hand to comprehensively address issues that come up.  

As the biggest firm in Lake, Geauga and Ashtabula counties, with offices in Painesville and downtown Cleveland, we have the resources to handle complex matters.  

As a local northeast Ohio firm, our fee structure is reasonable, with lower overhead than most downtown firms.  

Whether you are seeking a knowledgeable visionary to help you plan for the future or an aggressive strategist to see you through an adversarial matter, Dworken & Bernstein’s attorneys are responsive and thorough. We are poised to advise you, your family and your business through growth or transition and help you overcome hurdles and seize opportunities.

A Winning Team

Our winning team consists of AV-rated attorneys, Super Lawyers, Rising Stars, certified specialists and rankings in the top 75 Trial Lawyers in the U.S., as well as listings in Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.
