Litigation is the process of taking a case through the judicial system. And our attorneys have a wealth of experience in litigation. Managing Director Matt Markling has been awarded both the “NITA Advocate” and “NITA Master Advocate” designations by the National Institute for Trial Advocacy, in recognition of his dedication to trial advocacy.
Matt and his team have an exemplary record in representing clients through all aspects of the litigation process, from state and federal trial courts, to state and federal appellate court, and all the way to the Ohio Supreme Court.
When defending a lawsuit on behalf of a client, our goal is to have the case dismissed. When bringing a lawsuit on behalf of a client, our goal is to obtain a successful judgment. In either situation, we strive to reach an amicable settlement which benefits our client.
If, as sometimes happens, a case must be resolved before a jury trial, we have successfully represented many clients in those situations, as well.
Insurance companies, risk management pools, and self-insureds have appointed McGown & Markling attorneys to represent Ohio public entities, public officials, and employees in over 200 lawsuits since our law firm was established. This ongoing trust and support has ensured that McGown & Markling remains among the select few law firms selected for inclusion in the Best’s Directory of Recommended Insurance Attorneys® for every year since the firm was established.
