William H. Falin (Bill) joined Moscarino & Treu as a Partner in 2001 following 14 years with the litigation practice group of a large Cleveland, Ohio firm. Throughout his years of practice, Bill has concentrated on civil litigation and trial work. He has first chair jury trial experience representing clients in professional and product liability, personal injury, contract and trade secret matters in both judicial and arbitration forums.
Bill is dedicated to providing clients with the level of sophistication and resources needed for their best short and long term result and describes his metric for success simply as ‘a happy client.’ He demonstrates a pragmatic approach, ensuring clients are informed and representation is prepared, smart and as aggressive as needed.
Bill’s range of experience includes intellectual property disputes, product liability, including defense of elevator and escalator cases, premises liability, employment cases, and litigation involving commercial disputes and property.
An Ohio native, he received his A.B. from Ohio University in 1983 and graduated magna cum laude from the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in 1987 where he also served as an editor of the Cleveland State Law Review. Bill is a member of the Ohio State Bar Association, the John M. Manos Inns of Court, and is admitted to practice in the State of Indiana, as well as before the United States Court of Federal Claims and United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
A prominent Cleveland business leader once said: “Lawyers are functionaries hired by the people who do something…[They] aren’t the people who drive creativity. Their whole job is to keep people from doing things.” During my 30 years in practice, I have dedicated myself to proving that nothing could be further from the truth. Sometimes it is necessary to fight the fight. However, it takes creativity, pragmatism and problem-solving ability to empower clients to stay focused on the “doing”, rather than the courthouse. It is with these very attributes that I strive to create value for clients in everything I do.
