WATCH: Meet Michael Matasich

"Because I understand my clients’ businesses, industries and goals, they trust me to take care of their issues efficiently and effectively. As a trusted advisor, I will often handle matters in the boardroom. As a litigator, I will settle matters in the courtroom when necessary. The clients I represent work around the clock. Their businesses are on their minds all day, every day. I bring that same level of commitment and care to their businesses. I will do the same for yours. Your issues become my own, and I work zealously until they are resolved."

Michael J. Matasich works with business owners and commercial real estate professionals to solve the problems that arise while running their businesses, from disputes with other businesses, other owners, or current or former employees.  He has experience resolving matters relating to contracts, corporate governance, employment agreements, business torts and other types of business disputes. On the commercial real estate side, Michael handles disputes relating to leases and purchase agreements, boundary disputes, trespass, eminent domain, oil and gas, ODNR, EPA and other real estate matters.
