Her areas of practice cover a wide range of cases, including business litigation, corporate law, defamation litigation, domestic relations, personal injury, medical negligence, and wrongful death. Ms. Wickham’s clients range from individuals to multi-generational companies.

Within her first six months of being licensed, Ms. Wickham participated in the Gibson Bros., Inc., et al. v. Oberlin College, et al. six-week long jury trial in Lorain County, which resulted in a total verdict of $44,298,000 and $6,565,531.79 in attorneys’ fees and expenses. Ms. Wickham also assisted with Matthew J. Doerschuk d/b/a KLG Ambulance v.
