Multi-Million Dollar Verdicts Secured for Clients

Ken Blumenthal obtained his undergraduate degree from Marietta College in 1973. Ken was a probation officer and court director in Marietta before attending Capital University Law School, where he graduated Cum Laude in 1983. Ken returned to Marietta to practice law for 2 years before joining Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur as a defense attorney. He made an equity partner in 1993 and left the firm 2 years later. Since 1995, Ken has been representing injured victims in complex litigation matters.

Ken dedicated his efforts to various areas of personal injury litigation, including:

Ken's ability to achieve substantial verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients was unparalleled. Not only had he obtained many million-dollar settlements, but he has also had several multi-million dollar verdicts. Ken was awarded an $8.5 million verdict for a workplace amputation by a unanimous jury in Columbus. This accomplishment and others, including a $3.3 million verdict in the Ohio Court of Claims are discussed in greater detail on the Verdicts and Settlements page. Each day that Ken was in practice, he remained single-minded in his efforts to achieve the best possible results for his clients.
