About. Dedicated medical malpractice attorneys in Cleveland.


Everyone who needs a lawyer wants a professional with extensive experience and knowledge, proven success in the courtroom, and the respect of peers, courts, insurance companies, and hospitals on the opposing side. Our lawyers have consistently demonstrated their excellence not just by the honors and awards we received but, more importantly, by the results we’ve achieved for our clients.

Clients first

At The Mellino Law Firm, the clients’ needs always come first. By limiting the number of cases we accept, our attorneys are able to give all medical malpractice cases the unique attention they deserve. We pride ourselves on relentlessly advocating for those who have been injured. Our clients always get our best efforts and are kept well-informed.

A focus on medical malpractice

At The Mellino Law Firm, we focus on medical malpractice and do not try to cover too many practices areas, which often means our clients get better results. With medical malpractice lawsuits, this detailed focus is absolutely critical. Our Cleveland-based medical malpractice attorneys are passionate about helping you secure the fair financial recovery you deserve.

Why we stand out in our field

At The Mellino Law Firm, we have the knowledge and experience to represent clients in every type of case involving medical malpractice, catastrophic injury, and wrongful death. But we don't make empty promises. Our skilled legal team will review your unique situation to determine if you have a valid case, calculate damages, negotiate for the maximum possible settlement, and fight for you in court if a reasonable settlement cannot be reached. When we take on a new case, it's because we believe the client has been wronged and deserves justice. Let us fight for your rights and best interests so that you can focus on healing.
