Michael W. Sandwisch
  • Sole Practitioner


Port Clinton, OH



(419) 734-6512




At the office of attorney Michael W. Sandwisch, in Port Clinton, Ohio, I provide effective representation and legal advice in litigation including divorce proceedings, personal injury / wrongful death cases, felony and misdemeanor criminal defense, real estate matters, estate planning matters, and civil litigation. Just around the corner from the Ottawa County courthouse, my office is conveniently located in Port Clinton.

I provide effective legal counsel that is highly personalized. I don't represent cases; I represent people. For a lawyer who provides creative solutions to help accomplish clients' goals, contact my Port Clinton office to schedule a consultation to discuss your legal needs.

I prepare every case as if trial were unavoidable, which arms my clients with significant leverage at every step of the way. This approach allows the most opportunity for settlement but I will take a case to trial if necessary. My representation doesn't stop at trial. I have successfully represented my clients on numerous occasions in the Sixth District Court of Appeals, and have argued cases before the Ohio Supreme Court.

If you need an attorney who will aggressively explore and pursue every legal avenue available on your behalf, contact me in Port Clinton as soon as possible.
