Measure of Integrity

While W&S is primarily a boutique insurance litigation firm, the women and men in our office possess the diverse skills, talents and abilities necessary to meet our clients’ varied needs.

Significant experience at all trial and appellate levels in the Federal and State courts of Ohio and familiarity with local practices enable us to guide, advise and assist our clients at every stage of litigation.

Ultimately, we strive both individually and as a firm, to provide each of our clients with the highest quality legal services available, in a manner that reflects both excellence and value.

W&S Legal Milestones

Williams & Petro Co., LLC was formed in 1998 by business partners Richard A. Williams and John P. Petro with the goal of providing exceptional legal services to Ohio businesses and individuals.

The office moves to the heart of downtown Columbus across the street from The Franklin County Courthouse and other prominent legal facilities. Over 20 years later, our Columbus, Ohio location continues to serve as the firm’s home office.

Lorree L. Dendis, Susan S.R. Petro, John J. Petro and Josh L. Schoenberger joins the firm expanding the firm’s ability to provide a wider range of legal services to its current and future clients.

W&S opens a Cleveland and Cincinnati office allowing the firm to provide superior legal services to business and individuals throughout all of Ohio’s 88 counties.

After John P. Petro’s retirement from the practice of law, Josh L. Schoenberger joins Richard A. Williams as his business Partner and the firm changes its operating name to Williams & Schoenberger, Co., LLC.

Robert H. Stoffers joins the firm as Partner, bringing with him a wealth of experience and a successful practice in the areas of construction law and insurance defense litigation.
