The Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ are an objective indicator of a lawyer’s
high ethical standards and professional ability, generated from peer evaluations.
Reviewers assess their colleagues’ general ethical standards and legal ability. The ratings
appear in all formats of the Martindale-Hubbell® Law Directory, on martindale.com®,
Lawyers.comSM, on the LexisNexis services and mobile apps.
The General Ethical Standards rating denotes adherence to professional standards of
conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities. Legal Ability ratings are based on performance in five key areas:
The Behal Law Group
Legal

Lawyer’s
familiarity
with the laws
governing his/
her specific area
of practice(s)
Robert J. Behal
Analytical
Capabilities
Lawyer’s
creativity in

issues and applying technical
knowledge
Judgment
Lawyer’s demonstration of the
salient factors
that drive the

given case or
issue.
Communication Ability
Lawyer’s
capability to
communicate
persuasively
and credibly
Legal
Experience

of experience
in his/her
specific area of

Carol A. Sheehan
Why did you become an attorney?
I have always had profound respect
for American Constitutional history.
The study of law seemed a natural
next step given my interest in the
Constitution. Once in law school, I
was entirely bitten by the litigation
bug and have never lost interest in
the strategy and procedural elements
that initially piqued my interest in
litigation.
What’s your biggest challenge?
I see change management as not
only my biggest challenge, but a
challenge for all organizations. Both
the pace of change and its frequency
seem to be growing exponentially
year over year.

How do you measure success?
I’ve embraced in-house practice
because of the opportunity it presents to support a business whose
mission I believe in, and to become
intimately involved in the business
and its future direction. This company provides needed services to its
customers and we know customers
like and appreciate those services.
I consider it a privilege to advocate
for the company and its customers’
continued access to those services.
Leon Friedberg
What trends do you see in your
area of law?
In the in-house world, a trend that
I both see and embrace is the early
involvement of the legal team in both
long-term and even project planning.
There is increasing recognition that
lawyers bring a unique perspective
and analysis to business issues, not
just legal issues.
Dennis J. Concilla
If not law, what would be your
dream job?
I cannot imagine more of a dream
job than the one I have but if I had to
walk away from it, I would have to
find something as equally challenging and exciting that would give me
an opportunity to use my problemsolving and analytic skills.

Two notable cases
Why did you become an attorney?
The first reason: Watching Perry
Mason reruns when I was seven years
old and thinking it looked like fun.
The second reason: I love competition and thinking on my feet, both of
which are qualities you need to be a
good trial lawyer.
I was counsel in the Ohio Supreme Court case
establishing grandparent visitation, and in a
more recent case where we obtained custody
for a father who had been denied regular
parenting time for eight years.
What’s your biggest challenge?
Dealing with high-conflict cases
and very emotional people, and helping clients to make decisions in their
own best interest.
A-V rated
More than 15 years
50 ColumbusCEO l April 2014
How do you measure success?
My favorite definition comes from
Emerson (paraphrasing here): To
leave at least one life a little bit better
because I was here.
Practice areas:
Business Litigation,
Employment Litigation,
Governmental Defense
What trends do you see in your
area of law?
There will be more forms of alternative dispute resolution, as well as
outsourcing of some legal services.
Practice areas:
Bad Faith, Business
Litigation, Construction
If not law, what would be your
dream job?
I dreamed of being a trial lawyer,
and here I am. Other dream jobs:
Starring in a Broadway musical or
owning a charming and successful
bookstore.

Q&A
Why did you become an attorney?
As a kid, I saw my dad practicing
law and decided I wanted to follow
in his footsteps. Being able to assist
clients with important issues that impact their success was something that
I thought would be very rewarding.
What’s your biggest challenge?
The biggest challenge in my
practice is adapting to ever changing tax law. Staying current with
these changes and understanding the
impact on clients requires a lot of
time and effort, but it is an essential
component of being able to deliver
the highest quality tax advice.
How do you measure success?
Success is measured by the satisfaction of our clients and the growing
demand for our services. Essentially,
our success is measured by the success of our clients. If we help them to
be successful, and do so in an effective and efficient manner, clients will
reward us with more opportunities to
help them meet their interests.
What trends do you see in your
area of law?
In a tough economic climate,
greater importance is being placed on
tax planning for businesses, whether
with respect to operations or transactions, in order to maximize net profits
and gains. Tax lawyers are serving
an increasing role for companies and
are becoming more involved in all
aspects of their planning.
If not law, what would be your
dream job?

58 ColumbusCEO l April 2014
Why did you become an attorney?
Out of a genuine interest in the
various aspects that law intertwines
with the business world, and a desire
to fulfill the key role as an attorneyadvisor and advocate for the needs of
business clients.
What’s your biggest challenge?
It’s the ever elusive work-life balance that afflicts all of us (attorneys
and business professionals alike).
How do you build and manage a
successful legal practice, attend to
internal and business/management
issues of the firm, participate in outside endeavors and try to be a good
spouse and father?
How do you measure success?
Professionally, it is measured
by the successes of our clients, by
providing or contributing to that
“successful” result of a transaction
or finding a solution to a challenging
issue. Personally, it’s enjoying time
spent with family and being a part of
their accomplishments.
What trends do you see in your
area of law?
Locally, it will be a continuing
focus on Downtown development
and seeking further solutions to
mesh/intertwine living and lifestyle
issues with workplace settings and
the challenge of transportation
infrastructure (both mass and
individual transportation). More
broadly, I see challenges for the
commercial retail development
sector, and possibly office/work
space.
If not law, what would be your
dream job?
Probably something involving
education, teaching possibly. But,
medicine and health, exercise and
wellness issues have always been issues that I’m passionate about, and I
could as easily see myself involved in
something promoting better quality
of life through a mix of those.

Q&A
Why did you become an attorney?
As far back as I can remember, my
family has viewed service to others as the strongest calling for an
individual. I knew I wanted a career
that focused on helping others and in
making a difference.

Two notable cases
Served as lead counsel for a Fortune 500

60 ColumbusCEO l April 2014
What’s your biggest challenge?
We tend to be problem solvers. As
is the case with most problems, if you
get to it early, you have a much better
chance to control it, limiting its potential impact and ultimate damage.
How do you measure success?
Personally, it’s about my wife,
Susie, and I being great parents to
our children and providing a home
that is not only protective, but also a
source of strong learning so that they
are prepared to make good decisions.
For my business, I measure success
in our ability to obtain the results
for our clients that they deserve and
providing a supportive atmosphere
for our team of professionals at Hahn
Loeser.
What trends do you see in your
area of law?
Because of the information now
available on the Internet, every
business executive has to be aware
constantly of all facets of their business. From a litigation perspective,
my clients are much more aggressive
about taking a case to trial where they
have not done anything wrong. I’m
more than willing to help a client
pursue every recourse available to
find the right resolution.
If not law, what would be your
dream job?
Tell Urban Meyer not to worry, but,
like a lot of us, I’d love to be head
football coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes. A more genuine and realistic
dream job is to be a high school
football coach. I truly enjoy helping
young people maximize their talents
and helping them grow and mature
during their formative years.

Labor and employment; litigation
Types of clients represented
Businesses of all sizes, and executives needing
employment and other agreements. Industries I
have worked with most include manufacturing,
education, nonprofits, construction, and health
care.
Previous jobs
Squire Sanders & Dempsey, 1993-2009 (partner
2000-2009); Associate, Jones Day, 1989-1992;
Project Manager, Harvard Business School
library, 1984-1986
Family
Married to Alicia Nolan since 1986. Twin sons
Chris (University of Miami) and Thomas (Case
Western) are college freshmen.
Two notable cases:
• Getting my first injunction in a non-compete
case as a senior associate.
• A particular investigation of alleged highlevel wrongdoing—which I can’t say much
else about! Both were critical to the client, had
a good result, were fast paced, and involved
great colleagues. They are memorable not only
as individual matters, but in retrospect they
were foundations for two kinds of work I have
done a lot of since.

2010
66 ColumbusCEO l April 2014
Why did you become an attorney?
After college I considered law
school and graduate study in political
science. A poli sci professor arguing
for the latter said that in law school
they say, “Here are the rules, now go
play the game,” and in graduate study
they say, “What is the game?” I guess
it backfired because law school sounded better when he put it that way!

How do you measure success?
Minute by minute: Is everything
we do calculated to help us continue
to build a vibrant and highly coordinated law office and firm? Longer
term: When we stop and reflect at
the end of each year, are we doing it?
Medium-term goals of some metric
by some date are needed for budgeting, but can be limiting if they are
your primary focus.

If not law, what would be your
dream job?
Coaching 8- and 9-year-olds in
soccer and basketball. So many kids
drop out of sports shortly after this
age, mainly because of adults who
aren’t thinking clearly. Many don’t
return and lose the lifetime benefits,
to themselves and the organizations
they are part of, of sports for fun.
Practice areas:
Workers Compensation,

What’s your biggest challenge?
Whether representing a client or
building an office, finding the perfect
balance between aggressive and creative on the one hand, and time-tested nuts and bolts on the other. When
we are able to meet that challenge,
great things can happen.
What trends do you see in your
area of law?
More and more employees who
are protected by discrimination and
other laws, an expanding range of
working arrangements (compared to
the traditional full time/fixed location model), and technology make
the compliance environment more
challenging every year for virtually
all employers.

Q&A
Why did you become an attorney?
I grew up in West Virginia.
Being the first college graduate on
either side of my family, the opportunity to become an attorney was
something that both matched my
perceived skill set and brought honor
to my parents, who had sacrificed so
much for me.
What’s your biggest challenge?
Making sure our law firm remains
small as we get bigger.
IMMIGRATION LAW
How do you measure success?
By the number of extraordinary
clients who count on our firm to represent them on their critical matters.
What trends do you see in your
area of law?
An increasing focus on delivering
quality service at a fair price.
If not law, what would be your
dream job?
Starting shortstop for the Cleveland
Indians.

Military flight teams were
grounded at the time because of
federal budget cuts, so civilian

I was fortunate to capture the

Bubbling creativity
Misty moment
ellow photographer Adam Cairns,
who had passed by this scene on
his way home, called to let me know of
the photo opportunity.
When I arrived, Daniel Faltermaier
was testing a mixture for making giant
soap-film bubbles in a parking lot near
the Columbus Metropolitan Library.
The fact that Faltermaier was
working in front of a black-and-white
mural of silent-film actors Greta
Garbo and John Gilbert added an
artistic flair to the image.
love the surreal quality of the
photo of Parish Weatherspoon,
5, of Columbus, running through
the mist from the fountain at
Bicentennial Park at sunset. Parish
and his family were enjoying the
park on a warm spring day.
Using a telephoto lens to compress the scene, I shot into the
sunset to illuminate the water and
mist and capture the silhouette.
The photo embodies childlike
wonder and playfulness, which
appeals to me.

Helping hand
M
urphy Vetter, 11, is the first
special-needs child to play
football in the Olentangy Youth
Athletic Association, an extracurricular sports league in the
Olentangy school district.
The path to the football field,
however, hasn’t been an easy
one. The Vetters once feared that
Murphy, who is autistic and has
Down syndrome, might have to be
institutionalized because of cuts
ERIC ALBRECHT
in funding for Medicaid benefits.
The Vetters and other parents
sued the Ohio Department of
Mental Health and the
Department of Job and Family
Services in federal court,
arguing that the state was
violating their right to obtain
such benefits. The Parents
League for Effective Autism
Services won the case, and the
state settled in late 2011,
providing coverage to 123
children, including Murphy.
Still, nothing comes easy for the
young man — including football.
Official Don Alexander, however,
lent a helping hand to Murphy —
a free safety for the Liberty Bulldogs — as he set up on defense.
It was uplifting to see others
interact with Murphy, and I think
this photograph helped capture
that.
