Our team has the unique ability to try any case—including medical cases, civil rights cases, product liability cases, class action, business litigation, and more. We are trial lawyers at heart. We understand how to win a case in a courtroom. Many attorneys no longer refine their ability to fight a case in court. At Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP, we understand the importance of trial skills and prepare a case for trial from day one. The depth of our trial preparation is unmatched.
We are also able to maximize the value of the cases we take. Our lawyers dedicate themselves to achieving maximum results for clients. As such, we’ve earned a winning reputation among plaintiffs, defense counsel, and insurance companies. We demand and obtain top value in our cases by pursuing negotiated settlements. Our priority, as always, is to achieve the best results for those we serve.
Finally, what sets our team apart at Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP is our passion for what we do. We believe firmly in the importance of our work and view obtaining results and justice for injury victims as the most rewarding aspect of our practice. Many of our clients come to us during the most difficult, challenging experiences they will ever face. It’s important to us that we are able to comfort and assist those whose lives have been turned upside down by an injury. We are prepared to do what it takes to zealously represent them, and we take pride in always acting in the best interests of our clients.

Q:What is the statute of limitations in Ohio?
A:The statute of limitations to start civil cases varies by type of case. For personal injury cases, the standard time limit is two years. This time limit begins at the day the cause of action occurs.
Q:Do I need a nursing home abuse lawyer?
A:Some signs of nursing home abuse include bedsores, broken/fractured bones, dehydration, malnutrition, infection, cuts/tears/lacerations, unusual exhaustion, welts, burns, or bruises. Abuse is also not limited to physical injuries. Emotional abuse, caregiver neglect, and sexual assualt are other forms of abuse. Your loved one may not be able to properly communicate everything going on, so your vigilance to unusual behaviors or injuries can be crucial to a case. If you suspect he or she is being mistreated in any way by nursing home staff, it is a good idea to speak to a lawyer.
Q:What questions should I ask an auto wreck attorney?
A:To get the most out of your experience, it’s a good idea to ask 1) What deadlines are involved? 2) How long will the process take? 3) How can you best represent my case? 4) What damages can I reasonably expect to recover? 5) Can future medical expenses be recovered? 6) What information can I provide? 7) What should I say to the insurance company? 8) What costs are involved? A good auto accident attorney will feel comfortable answering all these questions and more.
Q:How much is a lawyer for personal injury?
A:Some lawyers will charge upfront fees. Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP does not charge anything unless we win the case, so there is no upfront cost whatsoever.
