I Am Here To Help You Resolve Your Legal Problem Efficiently

If you are like most people, you probably hoped you would never find yourself needing a lawyer. I understand that. Now that you are facing a serious legal problem, though, it makes sense to rely on one whom thousands of others have trusted in the past.
From the moment we sit down together to discuss your case, I want you to feel comfortable. I will take the first step by listening to your concerns. Then, I will discuss my experience as a trial lawyer and explain my credentials. By the end of the consultation, you will have a very clear idea of the services I offer; exactly how I propose to help; and the fees I charge.

Helping You Make The Right Decisions

I am Richard C. Lombardi, and as an attorney, I am often asked whether it is better to resolve family law matter through mediation or litigation. The family court in Ohio expects parties to do everything they can to resolve their disagreements and create settlement agreements outside of trial, if possible.

I will work aggressively to help you resolve disputes through mediation and skillful negotiations, but it isn’t always possible. When going to court is necessary, I am a family law attorney with a proven record of skillful trial work.

After more than four decades of practicing law, I have helped people face nearly every kind of serious legal problem and almost always come out of it with hope for the future.

Definition Of A True Professional

“Richard is the definition of a true professional. I needed help with a disastrous financial situation along with an embarrassing criminal record that needed attention. Richard treated me with dignity and respect no matter the situation. He put me at ease as if I could get through this with this help. He finalized the bankruptcy with attention to detail, and I am planning on using his services again soon on another matter.”
– Brent H., Ravenna, Ohio

Feeling Good About Our Choice

“Wanting to share the fact that my husband and myself had a very pleasant experience in having Mr. Richard Lombardi represents us in court. He and his office staff (Donna) were very informative during the process. He communicated with me when anything came about that I needed to know, or if I needed to get documentation for him. We plan on seeing him for other issues as well without hesitation.

After we left court and had a final moment to talk, we laughed, shook hands, thanked each other and walked away feeling very good about our choice. We also felt that he as well enjoyed us as clients.
Thank you, Richard, for everything!”

– Paula and Jim J., Ravenna, Ohio

Maintaining A Reputation For Legal Excellence

You probably know that many lawyers get a bad rap. It seems that everyone knows an attorney who never returned phone calls, passed their case off to a young associate or simply didn’t provide the vigorous representation required for the case. At my law firm, you will never have that experience.

I am Richard C. Lombardi, an able attorney in Ravenna, Ohio. I have been practicing law for more than 40 years. My father practiced law for decades before me and was appointed by the Governor and elected as a valued Judge of the Court of Common Pleas. Both my brother and my son are respected attorneys as well. I am proud of the professional recognition the Lombardi name has earned throughout the region.
