Why CCJ?

Critchfield, Critchfield & Johnston is a law firm with deep roots in Northeast Ohio and a history that dates back to the Civil War era—that’s over 150 years for those who might be counting.  Since that time the firm has served as trusted legal advisors to thousands of successful businesses and individuals and set the standard for a climate of excellence, teamwork and client service.

At its core, Critchfield is a business-oriented firm that is known throughout Ashland, Medina, Wayne, Holmes and Knox counties for its ability to handle complex, high-stakes transactions of all kinds—from M&A, to real estate development, sales and acquisitions. We are also known for our ability to advise clients on all matters involving the day-to-day operations of their businesses, including employment and workers’ compensation issues, governance, taxation, succession planning and, if needed, litigation. Critchfield takes pride in exceeding its clients’ expectations—every day and in every transaction.

Beyond the provision of quality legal services, the firm is even prouder of its commitment to the communities in which its attorneys and staff live and work. Critchfield and its employees contribute time and resources to a number of local charitable and civic organizations. These contributions stem from the deeply-held conviction that giving back, both personally and as influential members of the legal and business communities, leads to a healthy, vibrant atmosphere that draws talented people and innovative businesses to Northeast Ohio.

This defines Why CCJ.
