About Us

Donald K. Swartz

I graduated from the University Of Akron School Of Law in 1997 with one goal for my practice – to help people solve their legal problems as effectively and efficiently as possible.  My practice began in the City of Steubenville where I was a partner in a small firm for 5 years.  In 2002, I relocated to Cincinnati where I worked for a large firm in downtown Cincinnati handling civil litigation for nearly 9 years.  On October 1, 2011, I established Swartz Law where I can once again focus on my original goal.

Being in practice for over 14 years and handling thousands of cases in such diverse areas as bankruptcy, real estate, estate planning & probate, family law and juvenile law has given me a unique breadth and depth of experience that few others possess.

In addition to my legal practice, I have appeared as a lecturer on real estate matters at Hondros College and at CLE seminars for the Cincinnati Bar Association and the National Business Institute (“NBI”).

I bring all this experience to the table in order to assess all the available options to solve your legal problems.  I am licensed to practice law in Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia[1], as well as the United States Federal District Courts for the Southern District of Ohio, Eastern District of Kentucky and the Northern and Southern Districts of West Virginia.

If you have any questions about what your legal options are, please contact me.  I do not charge for the initial consultation, so there is no cost to you for having an attorney review your situation.

Below is a little more information about me.  Thank you for visiting my website!
