Steven D. Shandor

An experienced litigator, Steve is Chair of Day Ketterer’s Banking Law Practice Group. He has appeared in state and federal courts throughout Northeast Ohio representing clients ranging from large banking institutions to small business owners and individuals throughout Ohio. For his outstanding work, Steve was selected for inclusion in Ohio Super Lawyers® Rising Star program in 2010.

When dealing with legal problems, clients want the most practical advice, and having the right attorney to represent them is critical. To start, Steve meets with new clients to learn their concerns and determine how Day Ketterer can best address them head on. Clients who come to the firm are looking for someone to resolve matters for them, whether that means negotiation, mediation or trial. Not every situation needs to go to trial, and not every issue can be resolved through mediation, but sitting down with a client to determine the best strategy is often the difference in achieving the ideal outcome.

As a former assistant prosecutor in Mahoning County, Steve has extensive jury and bench trial experience.  His success in the courtroom benefits business owners, corporate executives and banking officers who need counsel to help protect their rights in commercial and civil litigation disputes.
