ABOUT

Attorney Picture (2021).jpg

The Law Office of Rudnick, Hosek, & Pendl, Ltd. traces its roots here in Greenville for over thirty years. Our firm is a general practice firm, serving a broad array of legal needs for clients. While our practice is focused primarily in Darke County, we also regularly handle cases in surrounding counties.

 

We pride ourselves on personalized service that is sensitive to the truths that each client situation is unique and that legal strategies are not meant to be applied in a “one size fits all” manner. Diligence is our primary focus in meeting client needs; it is our aim to handle client matters as efficiently as possible while not sacrificing quality and attentiveness to details.
