When you have a legal concern that affects your future or your family, you want the help of an attorney with the experience to meet your needs. You deserve an attorney who will take those needs to heart. At Schroeder, Blankemeyer and Clinton, LLC, you can have both.

Our firm has been a fixture in the Ottawa, Ohio community since 1954. Our clients are our neighbors, and in many cases, we are serving the second or third generation of a family the firm has been working with for decades. Whether buying a home, addressing the needs of an aging parent, making an estate plan, or administering the estate of a loved one, our clients are much more than case files to us. We take your concerns as seriously as we would those of our own families, and we take the time to listen, inform, and advise at every step of the legal process.

Our attorneys are natives of the Ottawa area who have years of experience practicing law in big cities. We have the skill and sophistication to handle complex legal matters, and a commitment to serving the people and community we care about. We invite you to learn more about our team, our practice areas, and how we can help with your legal needs both today and for years to come.
