Chad Tuschman

Attorney Tuschman’s career began with his advocacy of OB/GYNs in birth trauma cases, before he transitioned into defending physicians across the country, as well as product manufacturers. However, he quickly realized his true passion lay in fighting for the rights of patients who have suffered at the hands of a defective product or medical malpractice. As a top Ohio medical negligence attorney, he finds it truly rewarding to pursue justice on behalf of those who are deserving of compensation due to the tragedies they have suffered.

Inspired by his father’s work as a trial lawyer, Attorney Tuschman applies an aggressive, determined, and relentless attitude when it comes to his work ethic. He refuses to back down from a challenge, which is why he will never delay a case as a defense tactic. Instead, Attorney Tuschman takes cases head-on, fighting for a resolution as expeditiously as possible so clients can move on to the next chapter of their lives. It is thanks to this sincere dedication that he is able to maintain close relationships with his clients for years to come.
