Who We Are
We pride ourselves on being the "good guys." Our team is smart, tough, and aggressive when needed; strategic and passionate. When an institution does wrong, we're ready to fight for justice.
What We Do
We represent the underdogs, Davids against Goliaths. We fight for the rights of small business owners, individuals, and injury victims - the list goes on.
Pushing back against injustice and speaking out against those who have wronged you could not only benefit you but generations to come. When we hold others accountable, we keep them in check, which makes it less likely they mistreat anyone else.
Every legal matter is different, but fighting injustice in any form takes a mental and emotional toll. No matter what you're going through, it's important to have trusted advocates on your side. At Mendenhall Law Group in Akron, OH, we are committed to our clients - not just as legal advisors, but also on a human, emotional level. Our general practice attorneys don't want to just resolve your case, we want to provide legal solutions that you can trust. Our goal is to help you get justice.
The outcome of each legal case depends upon many factors, and no attorney can guarantee a positive result in any particular case. Whether you are a watchdog fighting government corruption, a struggling family battling banks, a startup competing against the market giants or a whistleblower exposing false claims, your attorney will zealously advocate for the best outcome for you.
Warner served as a member of Akron, Ohio's city council in the early 1990s. Frustrated by inaccurate answers to his legal questions and fraud in city programs, Warner went to law school to effect change. As an attorney, he exposed fraud in the City's Block Grant Program, fought for citizens' voting rights, and helped pass Charter reforms to keep Akron's utilities from being privatized. In the late 1990s, he filed some of the first federal whistleblower cases in Northern Ohio. For many years, he was a court appointed counsel for indigent criminal defendants and guardian ad litem for abused and neglected children.

He currently serves in the National Guard as a Second Lieutenant.

A small firm with big results
no matter the situation, we stay focused on providing high-quality legal services. Through personalized service, our clients know exactly who their lawyer is and how to reach them. When a university seized a client's property to build a football stadium, we went to trial and the jury returned a $3,000,000 verdict. That's three times what the university was willing to pay before trial. When a medical device company fired its sales executive who courageously blew the whistle on Medicare fraud, we helped recover $20,000,000 for the federal government. When a military contractor falsified manufacturing data on a crucial airplane part, we helped the whistleblower contact the Defense Department to correct the problem and save lives.
