Mark Schlachet

The Law Offices of Mark Schlachet, located at 3515 Severn Road in Cleveland, Ohio, is competently run by Mark Schlachet himself.  He prides himself working to educate consumers through advertising, causing them to be sensitive to wrongdoing. His rule of thumb is: “If you are uncomfortable with a practice in commerce, tell someone!”  He employs strong values of loyalty and full disclosure and serves the wide practice areas of New York, Ohio, and Illinois.


Mark attended Case Western Reserve University School of Law from 1966 to 1969 where he was actively involved in the Law Review and as a Justice on the Student Court.  He graduated with his Juris Doctor and is currently a member of the bar in both New York and Ohio.


After graduating from law school and working a few years, Mark was appointed Clerk of Court for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, where he thereafter was appointed United States Bankruptcy Judge for five years from 1977 to 1982.  He adjudicated consumer chapter 7 no-asset liquidations all the way to the then largest chapter 11 case in United States Bankruptcy Court history, being White Motor Corp, and its affiliates, where he made the first decision under the Bankruptcy Code to definitively rule on whether a large company could be sold “in toto” (as a whole, completely) without the procedural safeguard of a disclosure statement being sent to all interested parties.  This decision impacted the facility of engaging the now ubiquitous Section 363 procedure in the Bankruptcy Court.

From 1985 to 2000 Mark was Of Counsel to Climaco, Seminatore, Lefkowitz & Garofoli, keeping pace the the revolution in healthcare and, during that time was involved with the Citizens Advisory Committee for Cleveland Heights, Ohio for five years. The Advisory Committee, of which he was part, studied proposals for, and made recommendations to City Council regarding the use and distribution of community block grants from the Federal Government to entitlement cities (of which Cleveland Heights was one). Hearings were held monthly, and a report was written by the Chairperson annually (a position Mark held the last two years of his involvement).

After that time, Mark decided to work solely for himself as attorney at law, working on cases regarding class actions, chapter 11, consumer protection, construction and a host of other areas.


Based on his work experience and the cases he fights, it is clear to see that Mark has a strong sense of justice and cares about human rights and economic empowerment.  He seeks to implement the rule of law and he truly cares about working with all people.
