Richard M. Garner
For nearly thirty years, Rich has been the problem solver that clients turn to with their most difficult issues. His experience has left him with a keen understanding of not only how to solve difficult problems, but also of the limitations and costs of litigation. While a lawsuit, trial or appeal to the highest court may be what is needed, sometimes just some good advice or a well-timed letter is better.
Over the years, Rich has received many awards, spoken at seminars and events around the state and country and won some of Ohio’s most memorable insurance cases. He has handled hundreds of trials and appeals, including 85 cases before the Supreme Court of Ohio.
He has also served as National Coverage Counsel for insurers on subjects ranging from chemical exposures to opioids.
In 2014, Rich became the only lawyer in Ohio certified as a specialist in both appellate law and insurance coverage law.
Rich and his wife, Renee have three children and reside in Powell, Ohio. They are passionate about their community, their church, books, music and Ohio State and Cleveland sports teams.
