Firm Details

Fishel Downey Albrecht & Riepenhoff is a mid-sized Columbus, Ohio, based law firm.

FDAR’s purpose is to provide high-quality, affordable legal services to public sector clients. Today, FDAR represents well over two hundred public sector clients throughout the State of Ohio.  We represent municipalities, boards, commissions, agencies, and office-holders in over sixty-five of Ohio’s eighty-eight counties.  Our client base varies from State office-holders to rural townships, from large metropolitan cities to villages, and from rural areas to the suburbs.  This broad understanding of public sector law creates a more thorough and efficient representation of clients.

Our strength and continuous growth is reflected in our ability to remain on the cutting edge of our traditional areas of practice, while expanding our services to encompass the ever-changing areas of public sector law.  We began the firm with a pro-management philosophy; that same philosophy has carried forward to the present. The firm’s strength and diversity stems from, and is maintained by, the strength and diversity of our staff.  Our attorneys hail from a wide variety of backgrounds, from rural farm communities to large cities.  Our perspectives and ideology are similarly varied.  This diversity is perhaps best reflected in FDAR’s community involvement.

Our attorneys serve leadership roles in, and are active members of, their churches and temples. They volunteer in a wide variety of community activities including public and private school programs, Children’s Hospital, assisted living communities, numerous youth activities, humane societies, museums, art galleries, and community centers.  This diversity allows us to successfully interact with a wide range of individuals as well as to analyze and address legal issues and problems from many perspectives.
