Douglas K. Fifner

Douglas Fifner received his Juris Doctor degree from the Cleveland Marshall College of Law in 1979 and earned an undergraduate degree in English Literature, cum laude, from The University of the South. Mr. Fifner worked his way through law school working as a pari-mutuel clerk at two local horse race tracks. After graduation from law school, Mr. Fifner was hired as a full-time attorney at Reminger & Reminger Co., L.P.A. in Cleveland and began his practice as one of the members of the firm’s 60 plus attorneys. By 1985, Mr. Fifner was made a partner of the firm.

Early in his career, Mr. Fifner was primarily involved in the investigation and defense of accident claims against trucking companies, which provided an invaluable lesson in the importance of early and appropriate investigation to the outcome of any litigation. He soon switched his focus to the defense of physicians, hospitals, nursing homes and product manufacturers and spent the majority of his practice honing his skills in these fields of law.

In 1995, Mr. Fifner established his own law firm. He was joined by his wife, Elaine, who is also an accomplished defense litigation attorney. In 1998, Dale Kwarciany, noted for nearly 20 years of experience and accomplishments in the areas of personal injury and medical negligence, joined the firm.

Mr. Fifner has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who in American Law (7th Edition, 1992-1993), by Strathmore’s Who’s Who for 1998-1999 by the National Registry of Who’s Who (1999) and by Who's Who in Executives and Business for 2001-2002. He has lectured to both physicians,  nurses and Long Term Care Owners and Administrators on issues involving risk management and trends in Ohio law. He is a member of the Defense Research Institute, the Ohio and Cleveland Bar Associations and the Cleveland Academy of Civil Trial Attorneys.
