Our Principles

As a civil litigation firm, the attorneys of W&F practice in a wide variety of legal areas including insurance defense and insurance related matters, business and construction law, and domestic relation issues.

With over 100+ years of combined legal experience, our legal experts have a proven track record of successfully defending large national insurance carriers and their insureds, businesses and non-profit organizations, municipalities, and individuals in the state and federal courts, as well as in alternative dispute resolution proceedings, and we are committed to doing it with honesty and integrity.

The professionals of W&F have an extraordinary amount of experience and a deep understanding of the litigation process equipping them to manage a wide variety of complex legal matters. Our attorneys stay on the cutting edge of the ever-changing law in order to provide our clients with concise legal opinions and guidance.

Our highly experienced family law attorney has been serving Franklin County and the surrounding areas managing a wide variety of domestic and juvenile related matters. Since 1996, Attorney Laura M. Peterman has practiced exclusively in family and juvenile law. She has successfully represented countless individuals in divorce and dissolution proceedings, custody disputes, child support matters, the modification of parental rights and responsibilities, and is routinely appointed by the Franklin County Domestic Court to serve as guardian ad litem representing minors in complex and high stake domestic disputes.

At W&F, we appreciate that each of our clients’ legal matters are unique and important to them, and because of this, they expect high quality representation from beginning to end. At W&F, we are committed to building a strong and lasting rapport with each client so that we can fully understand their individual needs and concerns in order to provide superior legal services to accomplish our shared goal of achieving favorable results and client satisfaction.

We also understand that far too often do individuals and organizations hire an attorney only to be kept in the dark and left uninformed. At W&F, the attorneys and staff are committed to providing our clients with exceptional and consistent communication so that they remain informed and engaged throughout every step of the legal process.

As experienced legal professionals, we recognize that when seeking the advice and services of an attorney can often be confusing, overwhelming, and costly. At W&F, we are committed to working closely with our clients of all backgrounds to ensure that they understand every aspect of the legal process and all available options and possible outcomes to achieve favorable results in the most cost efficient and effective way.

Throughout the firm’s 20+ years of existence, our attorneys have successfully defended a countless number of clients in Trials, depositions, examinations under oath, and mediations and arbitrations. Additionally, our attorneys have significant experience at all trial and appellate levels in the Federal and State courts of Ohio and familiarity with local practices. The firm’s motion practice division has a history of successfully disposing of claims against our clients using dispositive motions and third- and fourth-party pleadings.
