Stark County Based Law Firm Expands to Canfield

CANFIELD, Ohio — Stark County based law firm, Krugliak, Wilkins, Griffiths & Dougherty Co., L.P.A., is expanding its practice to the Mahoning Valley with a new office in Canfield at 6715 Tippecanoe Rd.

“We are excited about this new location which is strategically located in the heart of a business and residential area serving the Mahoning Valley,” said attorney John Tucker, the firm’s president.

The firm provides legal services in a variety of areas such as business, estate planning, family and healthcare law.

“Our firm does basically anything you could imagine in terms of legal services,” said Matthew Onest, the practicing attorney for the Canfield office. “Here, mostly through my practice, is real estate, oil and gas law, and litigation,”

Their goal is to expand and bring new attorneys into the new office. The law firm held a grand opening ceremony Tuesday morning to celebrate their first Mahoning County location.

“When we open up a new office in a new community, we stay. We don’t move unless we’re expanding and even then we stay in the areas where we are. We are a law firm, but we are also part of the community. So we anchor ourselves and we try to expand and grow as needed,” said Onest.

Onest said the firm’s attorneys pride themselves on their community involvement as a practice.

“Like all of our attorneys, it’s one thing we do no matter which office we work at: we balance the work side of it with the community [and] giving back,” said Onest.

Having recently moved to the area, Onest has spent time getting to know people by becoming involved in his children’s school and serving as a board member at the Spano Foundation. Going forward, he has plans to serve wherever he can in the community.

As of now, the office will employ three people. Onest will serve as the practicing attorney with two paralegals. The initial investment to open the new practice was approximately $50,000 according to Tucker.
