About Dworken & Bernstein

is a full-service law firm with top rated attorneys that has represented businesses and individuals in Northeastern Ohio for more than 50 years. From its founding in a small office in Cleveland's Standard Building, Dworken & Bernstein has expanded steadily to become the largest law firm in the Lake, Geauga, and Ashtabula County area.

David M. Dworken and Howard W. Bernstein officially opened the law firm of Dworken & Bernstein in the Standard Building in Cleveland, Ohio on September 1, 1959. The firm prospered, and in 1960, opened an office over Brown's Furniture Store on State Street in Painesville. The Painesville office was initially a satellite office and was not staffed on a full-time basis.

In 1961, David M. Dworken's brother, Marvin P. Dworken, joined the firm. In 1966, Melvyn E. Resnick joined the firm and in 1971, David J. Richards, Jr. became the fifth member of the team.

Since that time the original two-attorney office has increased considerably with the addition of top rated attorneys & respected professionals who are meeting the needs of clients for diverse and sophisticated legal services. A full service law firm, Dworken & Bernstein has the collective expertise and experience to handle almost any legal issue in today's world.

The business boom in Lake County, and especially Mentor, continued during the following 30 years, during which time the firm's Painesville office eclipsed its Cleveland office as the firm's headquarters.. During this period, new partners Patrick J. Perotti, Irving Rosner, Alec Berezin, Gary S. Okin, Patrick T. Murphy, Howard S. Rabb, and Keith Kraus joined the firm. The original founders of the firm, David M. Dworken and Howard W. Bernstein retired in 1995 and 1999 respectively. David Dworken passed away in 2011 and David Richards passed away in 2013.
