Ohio's First Choice for Birth Injury and Medical Malpractice Cases

Get an experienced Cleveland birth injury attorney who gets results

You trust your doctor to provide safe, effective medical care for yourself and your family. Unfortunately, that’s not always what happens. When birth injury and medical malpractice cases in Ohio happen as a result of negligence, the doctors, surgeons and other medical professionals who cause life-altering injuries rarely admit they did anything wrong. Instead, they often hire a team of attorneys to defend their actions and deny your injury claim.

He always made me feel my daughter
was more than just another case,
she is a human being.”
– Amanda G.

This is why you need a birth injury lawyer or medical malpractice attorney with the skills and persistence to build an effective legal case and go to battle on your behalf. You need someone with a passion for justice and an in-depth understanding of Ohio’s laws. You need Cleveland medical malpractice lawyer John A. Lancione and the entire legal team at The Lancione Law Firm in Rocky River on your side.

The Lancione Law Firm
Meet John Lancione

A lifelong resident of Ohio, Attorney John A. Lancione has been practicing law since 1988 in the Cleveland area. He founded The Lanicone Law Firm in Rocky River with his father in 1999. More than two decades later, our firm’s focus remains the same – we only handle birth injury and medical malpractice cases in Ohio.

An award-winning lawyer nationally recognized in the field of birth injury and medical malpractice, Attorney Lancione frequently lectures nationwide about these topics for national health care organizations. He always knew he wanted to be a lawyer. His father instilled his passion for justice and inspired him to become a lawyer at a young age.

“From a young age, I would go to my father’s law office. Watching him work, I saw the impact he made in people’s lives. I knew right away I wanted to be an attorney like him. I wanted to help people, to fight for the underdog and to help make right situations involving an injustice, a catastrophic injury or catastrophic harm.”

– John

Thanks to years of experience, The Lancione Law Firm is familiar with Ohio’s medical negligence laws and how the legal system works.
