Dennis's Biography

419-624-3126

I like solving puzzles.

Clients come to us with some of the most difficult problems in life.  To be entrusted with representing them and trying to solve whatever they bring to us is an awesome and humbling responsibility.

Most of my cases involve a large number of documents pulled together from many different sources.  After the picture emerges, I get to tell the story.  Anyone who has solved a complicated problem and explained it to someone else understands just how satisfying this work can be.

I believe that calling the powerful to account for their failings ultimately strengthens both the individuals and their respective organizations.

My time in public service - in the Ohio House of Representatives and local government - has enhanced my understanding and appreciation of the judicial system and the role of jury trials in our democracy.  Jury service is that rare opportunity for people to directly weigh in on many of the great issues of the day.

Dennis E. Murray Jr.:  Dennis earned both his J.D. and B.A. with honors from Georgetown University.  He has served in the Ohio legislature and the Sandusky City Commission (serving as President for two terms) as well as on the Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission.  His community service includes the Sandusky Central Catholic Education Foundation and the Sts. Peter & Paul Church Pastoral Council.  He has been recognized with awards from Central Ohio Association for Justice, Ohio Farmers Union, Ohio Environmental Council, Ohio Association for Justice, Ohio Sea Grant and the  Buckeye State Council of the Vietnam Veterans of America.
