Attorney Profile

At his own firm in Cleveland, Ohio, Bradford D. Zelasko focuses his law practice on civil litigation with an emphasis on personal injury and insurance law matters. Working primarily for plaintiffs, he has dedicated more than three decades to helping individuals and families throughout northeastern Ohio navigate the legal aftermath of catastrophic injuries, and he is well acquainted with the complexities inherent in insurance coverage disputes.

A Cleveland native, Mr. Zelasko also regularly takes on cases involving negligence, employment-related intentional torts, wrongful death claims and motor vehicle accidents, deriving considerable satisfaction from helping injured individuals and their families to win just compensation and reclaim their lives. His firmly established reputation as a steadfast and diligent advocate for his clients is reflected in that fact that the majority of his cases are the result of referrals from other attorneys and past clients. On account of his firm ethics and exemplary record, Martindale-Hubbell has honored him with its AV-Preeminent* peer-reviewed rating.

After earning his B.B.A. from Notre Dame University, Mr. Zelasko obtained his J.D. from Case Western Reserve University School of Law. In 1978, he was admitted to practice before Ohio state courts. He is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of Ohio. Prior to opening his private practice in 2011, Mr. Zelasko was a partner at Jeffries, Kube, Forrest & Monteleone, where he worked for more than 11 years.

Mr. Zelasko keeps up with the latest developments in Ohio trial law through his membership in the Ohio Association for Justice. He is a former board member of the Ohio Academy of Trial Lawyers (now Ohio Association For Justice).
