• MRR - Midwest Strong


Our expertise in the insurance industry stretches back farther than the firm itself. Before MRR was established in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1980, our three founding partners — Tom Mazanec, Todd Raskin and Ed Ryder — worked as insurance claims professionals. They brought that knowledge and industry experience to MRR, providing uncompromising legal representation to insurers and their insureds, the business community, and public entities.

As MRR has grown, the firm has remained true to its Midwestern roots and committed to focused personal attention. The vast majority of engagements are overseen by a senior partner.

Today, our reputation reaches far beyond optimal insurance claim resolution. Our team also includes legal professionals with strong backgrounds in fields other than the private practice of law. These professionals include former assistant municipal law directors, assistant prosecutors, legislators, legislative assistants, administrative hearing officers, federal judicial staff attorneys, state court of appeals staff attorneys, medical administrators, journalists, engineers, and music industry executives.

More than four decades of growth and success have brought new skills and approaches to the firm. MRR is now aligned into practice groups that include attorneys as well other seasoned professionals drawn from the public and private sector. This structure allows our professionals to develop unparalleled expertise in their specific practice areas, as well as allowing MRR to offer services in a greater range of legal matters, including business formation, estate planning, probate, labor matters and legislation, risk management, planning, and zoning.

Our promise, as it has been from the beginning, is to provide timely, cost-effective, successful representation to our clients. We are Midwest Strong and wholly devoted to our clients’ needs.

A legal team made up of former claims professionals.  We get it . . .  and our 40+ year track record proves that!
