About Robison, Curphey & O'Connell

Client-centered, collaborative and principled.  These are the core values on which RCO Law was built, and which continue to drive the firm’s ongoing commitment to exceptional client service and value.  Formed in 1874 in Toledo, the firm has practiced as Robison Curphey & O’Connell since 1964.  Jim Robison, John Curphey, and Mickey O’Connell practiced law with an unyielding dedication to their clients, many of whom remain clients of the firm today.  As part of the foundation of the Toledo legal community, the firm continues the tradition of our namesakes throughout northwest Ohio, southeast Michigan, and beyond. 

Our collaborative approach ensures that optimal resources are directed to foster the best outcome for the client depending on the expertise and experience warranted.  This philosophy is woven into the very fabric of the firm’s governance and compensation structure, to ensure the client’s needs, and only the client’s needs, remain paramount.  Our team of professionals enables us to offer each client the level of expertise appropriate for the challenge.  This means you will have access to a fully-qualified team of professionals ready to handle your needs, from matters routine and straightforward to those more complex and novel.

The principles that guided our founders remain embedded in the firm’s culture today.  Our devotion to integrity, candor, and service to others has not only shaped how we are viewed by our adversaries and peers in courtrooms and conference rooms; it has also promoted and preserved a remarkable sense of camaraderie and mutual respect within and across the firm, resulting in a workplace of unparalleled stability and dedication.  Furthermore we strive to give back to our communities, recognizing our responsibility to those less fortunate.

Guided by these values and traditions, we offer comprehensive solutions for all our clients’ legal needs and we look forward to the challenge of serving them into the future.
