At The Mellino Law Firm, our primary goal is to help injured individuals and families get back on their feet. We focus on cases involving severe bodily injury, wrongful death, and medical malpractice. Because we only accept select cases, we are better able to provide each of our clients with personalized attention and the one-on-one legal guidance they need and deserve. We are proud to have earned numerous positive reviews from our past clients. We believe in helping injured victims throughout each stage of the legal process, offering compassionate, honest legal counsel and aggressive representation in trial. Led by our founding attorney, Chris Mellino, our team has successfully recovered many million- and multimillion-dollar results for our clients. Chris’s work on several landmark cases, including Moskovitz v. Mt. Sinai Medical Center (1994) and Watkins v. Cleveland Clinic Foundation (1998), have helped change state law in Ohio to afford better protection for victims of negligence.

Mellino Law Consultation
Chris Mellino and his associates did a fantastic job handling my personal injury case. Mr. Mellino and his staff are very responsive, have a wealth of knowledge, exceptional analytical capabilities, and excellent communications skills.

It is a genuine pleasure for me to recommend this law firm to anyone who is seeking legal help.

I would like to sincerely thank you for all your help and hard work you put into my case. I am honored to have been able to be assisted with such competent and diligent attorneys through Mellino Law Firm.

They were always knowledgeable and very professional, as well as kind and considerate. Everyone was always so kind and I was always kept up to date in all happenings with my case. I was notified of every step being taken and all avenues available to me as well as being consulted on all decisions.

I feel that the best possible outcome was obtained in my case and I will definitely be using this firm for any legal issues and will be recommending you all to anyone in need of legal services. This is a dynamo team!

I found everybody there to be extremely professional and very caring and very friendly, and I was particularly impressed by the expertise of Chris Mellino. He did excellent work and was entirely realistic about our chances. I saw him interacting with the lawyers on the other side, who were definitely not pushovers, and I was very impressed by the way he conducted himself.

A number of people told me that I shouldn’t choose a small firm – that I should look for a bigger firm to take on [such a big hospital system] and, in fact, I was extremely happy with Mellino Law and the way they handled things. It was clear – and, again, I have a law background – they were handling things exceptionally well.

I think I was a real pain as a client because I always wanted to know what was going on. Not that I was rushing him, but I wanted to know what was happening – because my legal background is not in malpractice – and I was curious about it all. Chris was extremely patient and always explained things very, very clearly. I really can’t say enough good things about that group of people.

My mom passed away at [_____] hospital due to septic shock from a kidney stone and a urinary tract infection. The doctor performing the surgery failed to give her an antibiotic before surgery.
She developed septic shock at [_____] hospital, and they rushed her to [_____] hospital in Cleveland, and she passed away 15 hours later.

I thought there was something odd about that, and I didn’t know anything about this staghorn kidney stone until I read her death certificate. At that point, I thought something didn’t make sense, so I contacted Chris Mellino, who did some research for me. He is very, very good. Always returned my calls, answered all my questions. The staff was wonderful, and we won our case. It didn’t bring my mom back, but I got justice for my mom.

Cathy S.

I couldn’t be happier with my experience at the Mellino Law Firm. Everyone in the office took great care of us and went above and beyond.

The knowledge that Margo and Chris possessed was outstanding and the work they put into my case was unbelievable. They did a really great job with finding a very knowledgeable expert that helped us win the case. He knew things that I would never have even thought to ask about. Even the Judge said that I was in great hands.

If I know anyone that even needs a medical malpractice lawyer I would tell them to reach out to the Mellino Firm, they did a great job.

I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate ALL you and your law firm did for me. As I look back over these past 3 years and review them, I am so grateful that a past client had recommended you. I had looked at more than 7 different lawyers and no one seemed to know much about the process or was informed enough to make me feel comfortable.

Upon meeting you, I knew that you would fight for me and do all you could under the law to see that a wrong is righted. I must say, I had no idea how hard the insurance companies would fight. HOW can there be any question about what happened when I walked into the hospital and came out with my right leg paralyzed for life over a simple test they did; and in a BIG way, three years and all uphill. Without your vast knowledge of the law and who to choose for expert witnesses, I know I would have lost.

I truly was amazed to watch you work at trial. It was a work of art and I was thankful that you were on my side. You are a very organized person and everything was orderly and easy to understand. Please know I will be happy to talk to any future clients and tell them what you did for me.

Our family was extremely fortunate to have Mellino Law represent us. Chris and his staff worked tirelessly to make sure justice was served. The compassion they showed helped our family find some solace in this tragic event.

We truly appreciated the honesty Chris used throughout this process. His knowledge and professionalism are second to none. It is very rare to find an attorney with as much flexibility as Chris. He and his staff went out of their way to make sure our meetings were convenient (Judy even met me at my job).

In short, they took something very complex and turned it into a simple, seamless process. They allowed my family to grieve and offered an ear to listen. They made it their number one priority to truly understand who my father was, no matter how many people they had to talk to.

The W Family

My family and I were very pleased to be represented by Mellino Law. They are extremely professional, experienced and conscientious. But, most of all, the entire staff is very caring, compassionate, understanding, and wonderful people, and that is what you need when you have suffered the loss of a very precious loved one.

At the time that I hired the firm to represent my family, I was literally in a state of depression. Mellino Law showed me that they not only cared about our case, but they actually really and truly cared about me and my family. I appreciate everything that they did for us and I want to say thank you and God bless you.

Jewell Renee S.

Richard and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did for us through the ordeal of the trial. You knew we were afraid, and you guided us through the process from beginning to end. You were always available to answer any concerns that we had. During the trial, your expertise, knowledge, and professionalism made you stand out in our eyes as “the best” lawyer out there.

Again, Rich and I thank you and would highly recommend you. You are “The Best.”

Rita and Rich R.
