Areas of Practice

Dana M. Paris

Partner

Dana M. Paris joined Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy as an associate trial attorney in 2013. Since then, she has represented individuals who have been injured as a result of automobile collisions, trucking collisions, medical negligence, wrongful death, and traumatic brain injuries.

As an advocate for her clients, Dana litigates cases throughout Ohio and has successfully obtained favorable verdicts and settlements on behalf of her clients.

Dana also serves as an active member in numerous professional organizations, including the Cleveland Academy of Trial Attorneys, the Ohio Association for Justice, the William K. Thomas American Inn of Court, and the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association.

As a trial attorney at Nurenberg Paris, I have the great honor of representing individuals and families who have suffered as a result of someone else’s negligence, and this allows me to be an advocate on behalf of my clients so that I can hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions and misdeeds.

Outside of the office, Dana enjoys reading, traveling, playing tennis, running, yoga, and skiing.

Testimonials

  • “DANA PARIS is THE BEST and her case manager Bridgette is great! They work really hard to take care of me. I was informed of the status of my case regularly and in the end Dana made sure I received what I was owed. If you ever need a lawyer, you can’t go wrong with these two.”

    Client

  • “Ms. Paris was very efficient and professional, but also friendly and understanding. She was a pleasure to work with, and I felt confident in her abilities to handle my case. Through such a difficult time, it was a relief to have a competent lawyer who was also easy to talk to. After my accident, it was overwhelming talking to the insurance companies while also being in pain. As soon as Ms. Paris became involved, all that worry was taken off my shoulders and I could focus on getting better. I had an idea of what my compensation for this case should be and she exceeded it. I highly recommend going with Ms. Paris.”

    Client

  • “We had Dana Paris working on a case for us involving a bad car accident. She was very thorough, and her case manager Bridgette kept us updated without ever having to call and ask. They were genuinely concerned for our family and it showed.”

    Former Car Accident Client
