Cincinnati, Ohio Law Firm

High Stakes Litigation.
High Performance.

The lawyers at The Durst Law Firm are devoted to the art and craft of trial lawyering.

Corporate clients from all over the United States (and attorneys in need of local counsel) entrust us with complex commercial and employment matters that must be litigated or arbitrated in Ohio. People who have suffered life-altering injuries or lost a family member hire us in the most serious of transportation accident, products liability and other catastrophic injury matters – often newsworthy cases that most firms are unequipped to handle.

We pursue every case relentlessly, using our battle-tested skills to craft imaginative solutions in and out of the courtroom. Few boutique litigation firms can match our record.

Elec. Merch. Sys. LLC v. Gaal, et al., No. 20-CV-1898, 2022 WL 2176537 (N.D. Ohio June 16, 2022).

“Justice was done.”

The trucking company fought [my] case hard and tried to blame ME for the accident. [The firm’s] lawyers were not going to let that happen. They used private investigators to track down a key witness who was right behind me before the truck hit me who saw everything. Then they got bodycam videos from the police and a recorded 911 call from the truck driver that proved the truck driver was not telling the truth. In the end, I got a GREAT settlement.
