Attorney Awards


Michael W. DeWitt is an experienced trial and appellate lawyer who has litigated cases in most Ohio counties and in various federal courts across the country. He has argued appellate matters in Ohio appellate courts, and in the Fourth and Sixth Circuit U.S. Courts of Appeal. After representing corporate clients in employment disputes for over 20 years, Mike now represents employees in harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and restrictive covenant cases and uses the knowledge gained from defending those cases to help clients evaluate and pursue their employment claims. He also represents business clients in breach of contract and other business disputes.

Prior to starting DeWitt Law in 2016, Mike worked for a number of years at a boutique litigation firm where he honed his litigation skills representing corporate clients in both court and arbitrations throughout the country. He was then a partner at an insurance litigation firm with offices in several states, the District of Columbia, and London. He was also an adjunct professor teaching legal research and writing in Capital University Law School’s ABA-accredited paralegal program for 15 years.

Mike has a bachelor’s degree in history from Ohio University and earned his law degree at Capital University Law School in 1996. When he’s not working, he spends time with family and friends, spends too much time watching sports, particularly college football and hockey, and not enough time working on his slightly better-than-mediocre golf game.
