He serves on numerous church and private school boards and continually volunteers his time to many charitable and civic causes. As a responsible and involved family man, Mr. Lallo's respect for the family unit brings a warm and embracing human aspect to Lallo & Feldman.
Born and raised in Cleveland, Mr. Lallo graduated magna cumlaude from John Carroll University in 1976. He went on to receive his Juris Doctorate degree from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Mr. Lallo has been practicing law with his partner Michael Feldman since 1979.
Mr. Lallo's work in the area of Workers' Compensation illustrates his special concern for these types of cases. He has testified and lobbied on behalf of claimants' interests in the Ohio Legislature. He has spoken widely on Workers' Compensation to many organizations. Mr. Lallo is also a state board certified specialist in Workers' Compensation, a testament to his experience and knowledge in the field.
I see our responsibility as attorneys to first protect the rights of our clients. We must try to maximize the client's benefits and expedite the legal and administrative processes, which can become quite cumbersome and time-consuming. I try to handle my cases with compassion because clients in these situations are at a difficult point in their lives. This can be very frustrating for them.
Mr. Lallo, like his partner Michael Feldman, stresses the importance of treating clients with respect and decency. I try to personalize our services and bridge the gap between the individual and the administrative system. Our job is to humanize this whole process.
