Attorney Representation

One caveat, legal practice in all courts is restricted by law to attorneys who are licensed by the Supreme Court of Ohio. If an individual chooses to file legal documents without counsel, this will be permitted. Due to the complexity of the law and desire to avoid costly errors, most individuals who have a matter pending before the court are represented by an attorney. Deputy clerks are prevented from practicing law and therefore are not permitted to give advice. They are only authorized to determine if forms and other legal documents are appropriate and acceptable for filing.
