Family Law

Disentangling the shared family and financial commitments that define a marriage is a painful experience. For most of us, very little in life is as profoundly disturbing as the ending of what was once a happy marriage.

The lawyers at McMillan & Sobel have over 100 years of combined experience in representing clients in family law matters. We can and will promote and protect your rights under Ohio law as you go through this trying process.

Business Litigation

As the primary focus of the firm, we offer quality litigation services to entrepreneurs, small and medium sized business clients. In fact, most of our business clients came to us as referrals from lawyers or other professionals for representation in a specific lawsuit – but have stayed on as long-term clients because of their satisfaction with the results we achieved for them.

The areas in which we provide business litigation services are as diverse as our client list. We represent clients in manufacturing, wholesaling, and retailing. We represent professional corporations, financial services firms, title agencies, and realtors. All may find themselves in litigation dealing with contracts, employment matters, insurance coverage issues, unfair competition, or government regulatory action, to name just a few.

If you are overwhelmed by the constant harassment of creditors and you would like to move past this difficult time in your life, Attorney Kevin R. McMillan can help you through the maze of filing bankruptcy under the new bankruptcy law to emerge with confidence. We represent clients throughout Northeast Ohio including the counties of Cuyahoga, Summit, Lake, Geauga, Lorain, and Ashtabula which includes the cities of Cleveland, Akron, Mentor, Painesville, Chardon, Lorain, and Ashtabula.

The new bankruptcy law that took effect in October of 2005 was portrayed as a change that would make it impossible to file bankruptcy. However, that is not the case. In fact, less than 10% of the cases filed as Chapter 7 bankruptcies have been affected by the new law. You can still file for Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy, but it is now even more important to have the assistance of an experienced bankruptcy attorney to guide you through the process and to meet the detailed requirements of the law.
