Not unlike the transformation of carbon to diamond, Seeley, Savidge, Ebert & Gourash Co., LPA has come a long way from humble beginnings. The roots of the firm trace back to the practice of a single lawyer, Glenn Seeley, who started his practice in the just awakening town of Avon Lake, Ohio in 1957. Although Glenn’s practice successfully expanded over the years, he recognized the demand for his quality services and moved his office to Cleveland in 1968 in partnership with an eminent business lawyer.

The partnership lasted ten years and was a fortuitous association because it resulted in the hiring of Gregory Seeley, a promising business lawyer from the Ohio Department of Commerce, and Keith Savidge, a litigator from Jones Day. 

In 1978, Gregory and Keith became founding partners in the firm today known as Seeley Savidge Ebert & Gourash Co., LPA. The firm was an instant success, quickly developing a reputation for providing distinguished legal services. As the firm and its client base grew and diversified, Gary Ebert, a long-time City Law Director, joined Gregory and Keith in 1991, bringing with him a wealth of experience serving clients in such areas as public law, land use and probate law.

Seeley Savidge & Ebert continued to flourish into the twenty-first century and in May, 2007 added two new partners, Daniel Gourash and Robert Anderle. Daniel and Robert brought with them a nationally recognized commercial, complex litigation and insurance practice, complimenting the outstanding litigators and practice already existing at the firm, which was renamed Seeley Savidge Ebert & Gourash Co., LPA.

In 2013, the firm added a dedicated criminal defense practice. Seeley, Savidge, Ebert & Gourash Co., LPA now also represents people who have a lot to lose after being charged with a crime. The firm understands that individuals facing criminal accusations are concerned about their families, their jobs, and their reputations. The firm believes that reputation management is an integral part of any criminal defense strategy, and often times can be the most important. 

Fifty plus years of practicing law sets Seeley Savidge Ebert & Gourash Co., LPA apart. The firm’s attorneys bring a unique historic perspective to the practice and our community, including the demonstrated ability to anticipate change—both in our client’s needs and the environment in which they must compete to succeed. Simply put, this experience is the foundation for our ability to continue providing the highest quality representation in an effective and efficient manner.
