About Jann C Washington

I began my career in the law as a paralegal. I worked for a medical malpractice attorney for over ten years. I then became a paralegal for a creditor’s rights attorney for four years, working my way up the firm to become the controller and office manager of the firm, all the while attending law school and offering part-time paralegal duties to a personal injury and general practice attorney. Upon graduating law school and passing the bar I worked as a general practice attorney in a small law firm in Chardon, Ohio. It was in that practice that I began concentrating in foreclosure defense, creditor/debtor law, and landlord/tenant law. In addition to being admitted as an attorney in Ohio in May, 2011, I am also admitted to the Northern District of Ohio, practicing in the Bankruptcy Court in the Northern District. I am a member of the Ohio Bar Association, Geauga County Bar Association and Westshore Bar Association.
