David W. Orlandini
Dave believes that establishing trust is the most important characteristic of a good relationship. That is why he works hard to create and nurture strong bonds of trust with his clients and colleagues. As such, Dave works closely with his clients to analyze their case early and together to successfully resolve their litigation.
Throughout Dave’s career he has represented clients in almost every state court in Ohio and arbitrated before the American Arbitration Association. Participating in more than 30 trials, countless arbitration hearings and mediations, the majority of Dave’s practice is as defense counsel for insurance companies, their insureds, manufacturers, trucking companies, railroads, utility companies, landlords, small business owners, general contractors and subcontractors in such trades as plumbing, HVAC, masonry, concrete, roofing, electrical, excavation, paving, framing, and geothermal. In fact, Dave’s peers have designated him a “Super Lawyer” since 2012 for his expertise in handling Construction, Real Estate and Environmental litigation throughout Ohio. In 2020, he was also honored to be included on the list of Best Lawyers in America® for construction law.
In 2018, Dave received his certification from the Litigation Management Institute (LMI). LMI is the first certification program specifically designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the business of litigation management. The program is designed to bridge the gap between legal theory and litigation strategy, and the business aspects of litigation management.
When Dave isn’t working, he spends time with his family and friends. To relax, Dave enjoys playing golf and tennis, going to the movies, riding roller coasters, and watching baseball.
