This past Fall, after a lengthy application process, Steve Voudris was approved to join the American Arbitration Association's Roster of Arbitrators. An arbitrator is selected by parties who have a dispute and have decided to by-pass the judicial system. Instead, they decide to arbitrate their dispute with an arbitrator, who serves as a private judge. Steve is looking forward to serving the community in this new aspect of his practice.
In December 2019, attorney Brad Levine gave a presentation to the Cleveland Employment Lawyers Association (CELA). CELA is a group of employment attorneys who represent employees who have suffered discrimination, unpaid wages, retaliation, and harassment from their employers. Brad's presentation discussed discovery disputes, which are arguments that frequently arise from the collection of evidence during lawsuits. Brad was chosen to give this presentation because of the great amount of experience that he has handling lawsuits and the disputes that often arise during litigation.
Congratulations to Brad Levine, who was recently selected to the 2017 Super Lawyers Ohio Rising Stars list, which is an honor reserved for those lawyers who exhibit excellence in practice. Only 2.5% of attorneys in Ohio receive this distinction. He is a 2012 graduate of the University of Toledo College of Law, where he earned a Certificate in Labor & Employment Law. He also graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ithaca College, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Communications and a Minor in Writing.
