Mark Defossez Named 2013 Ohio Super Lawyers

The Donahey Law Firm Attorneys Named To Prestigious List

Columbus, OHIO, Dec. 17, 2012 - Attorneys Mark Defossez were recently distinguished as Ohio Super Lawyers for 2013. The inclusion of Defossez acknowledges their remarkable success as personal injury attorneys.

Only 5 percent of Ohio lawyers are named to the Super Lawyers list, an exclusive group determined by a "rigorous, multiphase rating process" that includes peer evaluation.

"I would like to emphasize the magnitude of attorney Defossez's achievement," said Richard S. Donahey Jr., partner at The Donahey Law Firm. "As a colleague, I get to see their outstanding work on a daily basis. I'm not surprised by their inclusion as Ohio Super Lawyers - they definitely deserve it."

Attorney Defossez has as a long history of success representing Ohio clients and families after serious injuries or wrongful deaths. Defossez obtained the largest civil jury verdicts in Franklin County (2000, 2001) Licking County (1998) and Gallia County (2008). While his trial lawyer skills are undeniably elite, Defossez takes a personal approach to his work.

"I'd like to thank both Super Lawyers and my peers for placing me in such prestigious company," Defossez said. "Today, I find it just as rewarding to help my clients as I did when I got into this line of work [in 1985]."

Distinction comes as no surprise, either, after assembling an impressive body of work in 2012. Recently helped an Ohio family reach a settlement in a wrongful death lawsuit against a doctor, hospital and health care organization. The family lost their 20-year-old daughter in 2009, when she was allegedly mistreated for the H1N1 virus.

"When a family is suffering, you need to do all you can for them - they're relying on you,It's a job, but there's a powerful, personal aspect involved. There's nothing I enjoy more than seeing relief on my client's faces."

Both Defossez are part of The Donahey Law Firm. Founded more than 50 years ago in Columbus, the firm is one of the oldest law firms in central Ohio. Today, Donahey Law proudly serves all of Ohio, with its small but strategic network of offices throughout the state. The firm even has a mobile office to visit clients at their home or hospital.
