Gerner & Kearns Co., L.P.A.

New Senior Associate, Opening of Cleveland, Ohio Office, and Expansion into Michigan

Gerner & Kearns, Co., L.P.A. Names New Senior Associate and Announces the Opening of a Cleveland, Ohio Office as well as its Expansion into the State of Michigan

Gerner & Kearns, Co., L.P.A. (G&K) is pleased to announce the appointment of Franco M. Barile as a Senior Associate in both the firm's Collection and Default Services Practice Groups.

Barile received his J.D. from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School and is admitted to practice law in the State of Michigan and the State of Ohio as well as the United States District Court, Eastern District of Michigan, Western District of Michigan, and Northern District of Ohio. Barile has an extensive history in collection, foreclosure and litigation matters and will also lead the new Cleveland office of Gerner & Kearns, Co., L.P.A. where he will also serve as Managing Attorney for the same.

"The addition of Franco to the Gerner & Kearns, Co., L.P.A. family was a situation that presented the best of both worlds for us. As a Cincinnati, Ohio based firm we had long sought to open a Cleveland Office in order to better serve our clients in the northern part of the state and, primarily, Cuyahoga County. The ability to do was most welcome and the fact that we were able to do so with an attorney the caliber of Franco made it that much more of a perfect opportunity for us. Franco further offers us the ability to have an experienced attorney lead our ever growing Collection Practice Group and to expand our Default Services Practice Group into Michigan." said Managing Partner, David E. Gerner, Esq
