Information is power, this firm fights for transparency within government and corporate entities to empower individuals to monitor, investigate, and hold them accountable. We accomplish this by helping citizens use Freedom of Information Act Requests and Ohio’s Sunshine Laws along with websites, social media, and traditional media to inform the public.

Accountability

We hold corporations and governments accountable.  We accomplish this task through the False Claims Act to make corporations, NGOs, and municipalities pay when they defraud the US Government and US taxpayers.  We use taxpayer actions under state law to fight government corruption and abuse.

Persistence

Democracy

Effective democracy depends citizen activists.  This firm advises those who seek to enter public service, circulate petitions and referendums, and fight corruption.  We have assisted candidates and issue campaigns obtain ballot access and and defended those wrongfully denied political rights.
