Chardon Family Law Firm


IBOLD & O’BRIEN was formed by the merger of the law practices of Jerry Petersen and Dennis J. Ibold, in 1980. Since then they have built Petersen & Ibold into one of the largest law firms in Geauga County. In addition, they have added a second office in Ashtabula County to better serve the needs of their growing client base.

Renowned Cleveland Area Attorneys

Ibold & O’Brien established itself as one of Geauga County’s leading law firms by providing outstanding legal advice, representation, and advocacy across a wide range of legal specialties including family law, personal injury, real estate & zoning, criminal defense, wills, probate, estate planning, and elder law, business and corporate, employee representation, worker’s compensation, bankruptcy, school law, and product liability.

We represent individuals, businesses, and government bodies in a broad range of areas. The firm’s practice is based in Geauga County, but its lawyers regularly practice in adjoining counties, Federal Court, Appellate Courts, the Ohio Supreme Court, and before state and federal agencies.

More than just attorneys, our lawyers are committed to helping build a strong community. Members of our firm are former office holders and serve on the Board of Directors of hospitals and banks. In addition, they actively sponsor a variety of community events and community organizations.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
