Paul Willison draws on the experience gleaned during his year-long federal district clerkship and his internship at the Case Western Appellate Clinic as he builds his general litigation practice. Dedicated to client success, he provides thoughtful guidance and develops creative strategies to attain client objectives.

Paul augmented his cogent writing abilities and probing research skills during his clerkship and internships. He also argued before the Ohio Eighth District Court of Appeals seeking to uproot a mechanistic treatment of client rights in favor of a more modern, adaptive approach.
