About

The law office of Wellman, Jeren, Hackett & Skoufatos Co., L.P.A. has been located in Austintown, Ohio since 1973. The founding partners, Thomas Peter Wellman and John A. Jeren, Jr., developed a specialized area of practice by representing injured workers. Over time, the firm became one of only a few law firms in the area with a concentration on workers’ compensation law. The firm also represented persons in need of Social Security Disability compensation, probate, and other general practice areas.

At its current size of five lawyers and seven supporting staff, the firm continues to practice mainly in the areas of workers’ compensation and social security disability law.  The firm has over 100 years of combined experience in workers’ compensation law and more than 75 years of combined experience in social security disability and supplemental security income cases.

The firm has expanded its practice to representing people involved in serious personal injury cases. Over the past 12 years, the firm has also developed a criminal defense practice, representing adults and juveniles in all levels of felony, misdemeanor and traffic charges.

It is our purpose to vigorously represent our clients, while maintaining the highest ethical standards in our profession. We strive to make every client satisfied that they chose our firm amongst many others to take on their cause. Our lawyers are well-versed in the laws pertaining to our chosen areas of expertise and have argued and tried cases all over the tri-county area in various courts, including the Ohio Supreme Court and the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
