Seven W+L Attorneys Selected as 2018 Ohio Super Lawyers Across Five Practice Areas

Dale Stalf and Jeff Teeters Recognized on Top Lists!

Dale Stalf, who heads Wood + Lamping’s Litigation Practice Group, was recently selected to two Super Lawyers lists for 2018. This recent recognition marks the seventh consecutive year that Dale has made the Top 50 Cincinnati list and the second time in the last five years that he has made the Top 100 Ohio list.  Dale has been designated an Ohio Super Lawyer in the field of Business Litigation since 2009.

Dale focuses his practice on the representation of small and medium-sized business, their owners and individuals in state and federal lawsuits involving breach of contract, construction defects, products liability, restrictive covenants, employment practices, violations of the Consumer Sales Practices Act, insurance coverage issues and business torts. He also regularly represents individuals who have suffered personal injury, wrongful death or other damages in accidents or as a result of professional negligence.  Dale is licensed to practice in Ohio and Kentucky.

Before attending law school, Dale served as a forward support platoon leader in the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). After receiving his law degree, he served as a prosecuting attorney for the 1st Armored Division in Germany and concluded his Army career as an attorney-adviser in the Office of the General Counsel to the Secretary of Defense at the Pentagon. Dale currently serves on the board of trustees of the Cincinnati Bar Foundation and has chaired the Cincinnati Bar Association’s Professionalism and Veterans and Military Law Committees. In his spare time, Dale plays saxophone in Santa’s Goody Bag Band, which for the last 35 years has brought “the music of Christmas to Cincinnati all year long” while raising money for a number of local children’s charities.

Vice chair of W+L’s Litigation Practice Group, Jeffrey Teeters, was selected for the fifth consecutive year to the Super Lawyers Top 50 Cincinnati list and has been designated an Ohio Super Lawyer in the field of Business Litigation since 2011.

The majority of Jeff’s work focuses on assisting clients in managing their interactions with their competitors. He provides counsel and litigation services in the areas of business and commercial, antitrust, trade secrets, non-compete agreements, unfair competition, shareholder, director and officer disputes, and professional liability.

In addition to serving on the editorial board for the American Bar Association’s Litigation News magazine and co-chairing the ABA Section of Litigation’s Book Publishing Board, Jeff also serves on committees for the Cincinnati Bar Association. Jeff has also served on several civic and nonprofit boards, including now serving his fourth term as president of the board of Graceworks, a nonprofit which provides a senior living retirement community and nursing home, home care, affordable housing for seniors, and housing and care for adults with intellectual disabilities and credit counseling in more than 50 locations in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.
