The firm’s national wage and hour/overtime practice is dedicated to the fundamental principle that working people should be properly paid for all of their labor. We represent employees in individual and class action litigation. Our attorneys have recovered wages for tens of thousands of employees who have been unlawfully denied their right to overtime pay.

Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP represents individuals in serious personal injury and medical malpractice cases. Our trial attorneys have been handling complex injury cases for decades. Despite changes in the law that have made it more difficult for victims to obtain the compensation to which they are entitled, our attorneys continue to succeed in obtaining judgments and compensation for those who have been injured by the negligence of others.

Our firm’s workers’ compensation practice has successfully assisted tens of thousands of injured employees in recovering workers’ compensation benefits. Workplace related injuries and illnesses could have a devastating consequence for an employee. Our workers’ compensation attorneys represent clients throughout the entire litigation process and work with other highly skilled workers’ compensation attorneys in Ohio and all fifty states.

We also manage a successful Social Security Disability Insurance practice. A disability may permanently prevent an individual from performing any work. Our Social Security attorneys have won disability awards for tens of thousands of clients and have been recognized for their professionalism and compassion by their fellow practitioners across the nation.
