Three Ibold & O'Brien Attorneys Named to 2018 Super Lawyers lists

The law firm of Ibold & O'Brien is extremely pleased to announce that attorney Dennis Ibold has been selected to the 2018 Ohio Super Lawyers list and attorneys Brian Bly and Scott Kuboff have been selected to the 2018 Ohio Rising Stars list.  

Each year, no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in Ohio are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive the honor "Super Lawyer" and no more than 2.5 percent of Ohio lawyers under the age of 40 are designated "Rising Stars."   

Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

This is Dennis's 13th selection (2008 -2018) to the Super Lawyers list and Brian's 5th selection (2012 -2013, 2016 - 2018) and Scott’s 3rd selection (2016-2018) to the Rising Stars list.  

Drive Safe This Holiday Season

“It’s not you that I worry about,” said my mom when I received my driver’s license, “it’s the other drivers that concern me.”   She is right.  To a great extent, every time we get behind the wheel of a car we are putting our safety (and lives) in the hands of thousands of other people we encounter driving on Ohio’s roadways.  Even the most cautious and careful driver can fall victim to someone else’s carelessness.  

As the holiday season is upon us, many of us will be traveling to spend time with friends and family throughout the country.  According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, there were 36,392 motor vehicle accidents in the months of November and December last year; the majority of which – 29,678 – was in December.   And for 11,578 people, an accident resulted in some type of injury. 

So, what can we do to protect ourselves this holiday season? Simple, control what you can and, hopefully, others will too:

  1. Don’t drink and drive
  2. Don’t text and drive
  3. Don’t drive if you’re tired
  4. Maintain appropriate speeds and distances in inclement weather
  5. Report unsafe driving
  6. Wear your seat belt

Enjoy your holidays and I wish you safe travel!
