Attorney Profile

Bart lives to help people, families, and small businesses find answers and hold wrongdoers accountable.  For more than ten years, Bart has been handled numerous personal injury, wrongful death, abuse, civil rights, wrongful conviction, medical malpractice, and business disputes from beginning to trial or settlement.  Whether Bart's client is a seriously injured or abused person, grieving family, or business owner, Bart's experience in the courtroom gives him the insight to advise them about what to expect and how to position their case for the best possible outcome.

Bart recognizes that in some cases, the money involved in a verdict or settlement may not be the only value a client is looking for.  In those cases, Bart is dedicated to finding creative ways to solve a problem.  In addition to monetary settlements, several of Bart's cases have resulted in business transactional solutions or changes in policies or protocols to prevent the same type of harm from happening again.

Bart is a partner at Cooper Elliott.  He is admitted to practice in the Ohio Supreme Court and all Ohio state courts, the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Northern Districts of Ohio, and the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Sixth and Fourth Circuits.  He attended college at Case Western Reserve University and law school at Ohio State.  Bart grew up in the Cleveland area but is proud to call Columbus his home since 2005.  He lives here with his wife and their three children.
