Jann Washington Lawyer Profile

Biography

About Me
I began my career in the law as a paralegal. I worked for a medical malpractice attorney for over ten years. Then I became a paralegal for a creditor's rights attorney for four years, working my way up the firm to become the controller and office manager, all the while attending law school and offering part-time paralegal services to a personal injury and general practice attorney.

Upon graduating law school and passing the bar, I worked as a general practice attorney for a small law firm in Chardon, Ohio. It was in that practice that I began concentrating on foreclosure defense, creditor/debtor law, and landlord/tenant law. In addition to being admitted as an attorney in the State of Ohio in May, 2011, I also was admitted to the federal court in the Northern District of Ohio, practicing in the Bankruptcy Courts. I am a member of the Ohio Bar Association, Geauga County Bar Association, and Westshore Bar Association.

Why Me?

Twenty years ago, prior to my entering into the field of law, my husband and I lost our house to foreclosure and we filed a bankruptcy. I know how people facing foreclosure and bankruptcy feel because I've been there myself. I know what the burdening crush of debt feels like. I can empathize with my clients while I represent them.

Clients across Northern Ohio come to see me for the level of attention I provide. I work personally with every client to ensure that they have a voice in resolving their problems, and strive to incorporate their thoughts and concerns into my legal strategies. From my background in law for the past 20 years, both as a paralegal and an attorney, I know that the best way to find solutions is to be open and honest, let clients know exactly what options they have and explain their likelihood of success.

Please contact me if you need assistance in the areas of:

Debt Relief
Bankruptcy
Foreclosure Defense
Landlord/Tenant

I also work with another attorney in handling personal injury matters.
