Attorney Dalma Grandjean Presenting at Greene County Bar Association Domestic Relations/Juvenile Court Seminar

Dalma Grandjean will be presenting an "Overview of Military Divorce" on December 11, 2015 at the annual Greene County Bar Association Domestic Relations/Juvenile Court Seminar.

Appointment of Peter R. Certo, Jr. to Federal Criminal Justice Advocate program

Peter R. Certo, Jr. shareholder at Altick and Corwin Co. LPA, was again approved by the United States District Court, Southern District of Ohio, Western Division, to represent major federal criminal defendants. He has held this appointment for most of his career.

While this is something of an obligation, it is also an honor and a privilege.
