Rittgers & Rittgers is pleased to announce the merger of the former Shea Hartmann law firm, including senior partner Joseph W. Shea and some of his staff, and the addition of highly respected Lindsay Lawrence, daughter of attorney Richard Lawrence. Joseph Shea and Lindsay Lawrence will manage the firm's medical malpractice group. Both Mr. Shea and Ms. Lawrence are licensed in Ohio and Kentucky and have represented individuals and their families in complex medical malpractice matters involving traumatic brain injuries, birth injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis and death.

Mr. Shea is one of the most successful and experienced trial attorneys in the Midwest. Over the past several decades, he recovered record breaking verdicts in several local counties for victims of medical malpractice and their families - including verdicts of $8.3 million in Hamilton County, $6.5 million in Butler County, and $5.4 million in the Eastern District of Kentucky Federal Court in Kenton County.

Ms. Lawrence is an AV rated attorney* who has committed her practice to helping individuals and their families who have been injured throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the State of Ohio. Her area of practice focuses on medical malpractice, birth injury, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and paralysis, and wrongful death. Ms. Lawrence serves on the Board of Trustees for the Ohio Association for Justice. She also serves on the Executive Committee of the Salmon P. Chase Inn of Court as treasurer and currently American Association of Justice's Board of Governors.

They will join an injury team at Rittgers & Rittgers that has already achieved record setting recoveries for clients over the past three years including settlements of $7 million, $5 million, and $2.1 million and jury verdicts of $3 million and $600,000.
