If you have come to this site, you probably need help -- either in getting an answer to a question or in deciding whether you should hire an attorney after you were injured. This site has tons of useful information. If you can't find the answer that you need here, you can always call us or send us an e-mail.
Almost all of our current clients have been referred to us by prior clients. We do not rely on slick television or yellow page advertising nor do we mail out letters to people who were recently in auto crashes. Like you, we find that kind of ambulance-chasing offensive. Almost all of our clients are here because of "word of mouth" or because another attorney recommended that they talk to us. They are here because they want to be treated fairly. It's that simple.
Since this firm was started in 1949, we have helped thousands of people just like you make recoveries that are fair and comprehensive. In the process, we have earned a reputation for results and fair-dealing that has led to satisfied clients and recognition by the legal community. We invite you to see what our clients say about us in their testimonials and examine our verdicts and settlements.
Our clients come from Lorain County, Ohio - and nearby Erie County, Cuyahoga County and Huron County. After we finish their case, they let others know that they don't have to go to Cleveland to find highly-trained, result-driven attorneys. It is former clients and other attorneys who get out the message that we take on insurance companies and beat them decisively. The trial lawyers at Miraldi & Barrett have been fighting for the people in cities like Lorain, Elyria, Sandusky and Norwalk for more than 60 years.
Both Benjamin Barrett Sr. and David Miraldi have been recognized by their peers as excelling in the field of negligence and personal injury law. Both were named Ohio Super Lawyers for the last seven years, 2010 through 2016. This rating is based solely on the evaluations of other attorneys and judges. This honor is limited to the top 5 percent of attorneys in their field. Both Ben and David have achieved an AV rating, the highest category possible from Martindale-Hubbel, again a rating based on peer review.
Fees May Be Less Than Other Personal Injury Attorneys
Most attorneys charge a certain percentage, usually one third of the recovery if the case is settled prior to suit, and forty percent if the case has to be filed. At Miraldi & Barrett, their fees are often less than those charged by other attorneys. They may charge a lower percentage if:
- Fault is not disputed,
- Your injuries are undoubtedly caused by the other person's negligence, and/or
- The amount of available insurance does not fully compensate you.
This firm looks at the totality of the circumstances and arrives at a percentage that is reasonable and fair to both you and the attorney. Before entrusting your case to another law firm, please give them a call.
They help residents of northeastern Ohio in cases of:
Auto, Truck & Motorcycle Accidents
Dangerous & Defective Products
Dog & Animal Attacks
Nursing Home Neglect
Victims of Drunk Drivers
Through the years Benjamin Barrett Sr. and David Miraldi have built a record of success by aggressively obtaining outstanding results for their clients while providing the personal attention that one would expect from a locally owned business. By being selective about the cases they accept, they can insure that your case will receive the individual attention that it deserves.
Building a relationship with their clients is their top priority. If you need an attorney, call them at 1 800 589 3023 for a free consultation. Once they take on your case, they will be with you every step of the way.

Please read our client testimonials:
"My friends told me that I needed to get a lawyer located in Cleveland to handle a serious injury case. My friends apparently were not aware of your firm. Your knowledge, your personal attention, and the result you achieved for me were outstanding. When you add this to the convenience of having an attorney located in Lorain County, I could not have made a better choice. Thank you."
Robert S. of North Ridgeville, Ohio
