Margo E. Broehl
Margo Broehl is a graduate of the College of Wooster and the University of Akron Law School. She has been practicing law since 1977 in Wooster, Ohio, when the late Judge Jay E. Lehman, asked her to join him for the purpose of serving his long-term clients when he became the Probate Judge. In 2015, Margo expanded the Broehl Law Office and welcomed partner, Elizabeth Krieder Wright. As part of the Broehl Law Office’s strategic plan, Attorney Joshua Montgomery joined the firm in 2018. The Broehl Law Office is a boutique law firm focusing its practice in Estate Planning (Wills and Trusts), Estate Administration, Medical Advocacy, Personal Injury, Disability, Special Education Advocacy, Small Business Services, Contracts and Privacy, and Corporate Law.
Margo also serves as counsel for the Prentke Romich Company and has enjoyed lecturing on various topics in the disability field. She is a strong advocate for the disabled and helped propose language for the current Americans with Disabilities Act.
Margo met her husband David while both were students at the College of Wooster. They decided to make Wooster their home and quickly became involved in the community. Margo especially enjoys being involved in community organizations with the goal of providing economic growth in her community. In that regard, she currently serves as President of the Wooster Growth Corporation. She was humbled to receive the Chamber of Commerce Wall of Fame Award in 2014 for her work in the community and encouraging growth in Wayne County.
It is especially rewarding for Margo to watch many of the companies she represented in their infancy grow and create employment opportunities in our community. Currently, Margo is serving her fourth generation of client families. Margo always appreciates the opportunity to help her many clients plan for their future and the future of their families.
Elizabeth Krieder Wright
Elizabeth Krieder Wright grew up in Ashland County, Ohio. A Black River High School Graduate, she received her Bachelor of Arts from Denison University and her Juris Doctorate from Case Western Reserve University School of Law. Her passion is working with small business owners to avoid costly legal problems or resolve those that have developed. As an attorney at law, she consults for employers in matters including drafting employee handbooks, substance abuse testing, unemployment claims, equal employment opportunity issues, hiring and termination, and work-related injuries. In fact, many clients consult her prior to establishing their business, and she assists in business formation, drafting corporate documents, and drafting and review of contracts.
Elizabeth consults with individuals and families regarding their personal legal matters. She enjoys working with families to strategize an estate plan customized to the individual’s goals and family dynamics. Experienced with estate administration, she appreciates the ability to attend to the necessary but administrative tasks in order to enable families to focus on the transition often needed at the time of a loved one’s death. Attorney Wright serves as counsel for numerous families caring for a loved one with special needs, guiding the family’s estate plan and review the benefit of trusts in order to avoid unwanted consequences. She also helps such families obtain guardianship of special needs or elderly loved ones and then serves as an on-going resource for questions and annual reporting.
Elizabeth’s personalized approach is also a part of her personal injury practice, where she remains focused on her individual client’s needs rather than a one-size fits all representation. She has nearly three decades of experience presenting and successfully negotiating settlements with insurance companies for victims of motor vehicle accidents, house fires, and rejected long term care insurance claims. Because she attends to individualized needs, she helps clients avoid common consequences accident victims experience, such as damaged credit while awaiting insurance settlements.
Her love of travel and interest in foreign lands and languages lead to her proficiency in German. She shepherds individuals, employees, and families through the immigration process.
Elizabeth is an active member of the community and a member of the state and local bar associations. She previously served on the Board of Trustees of Friends and Neighbors of Every Woman’s House, co-chairing the traditional Garden Tour fundraiser. She also served on the Board of Trustees of the Ohio Self-Insured Employers Association, The Wayne County Humane Society, The Wayne County Arts Center, and Goodwill of Wayne and Holmes County. She is a graduate of the Wooster Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Wooster program.
