Eileen Paley Sells Practice to Doucet
Columbus City Councilmember Eileen Paley has sold her law practice to the Dublin based law firm of Doucet & Associates Co., L.P.A. The sale will enable Council member Paley to focus on serving the people of Franklin County through Columbus City Council, as well as focus more energy on her race for Franklin County Municipal Court.
As the sale is finalized, Councilmember Paley will join Doucet & Associates part time until her upcoming Municipal Court Judicial election. This will enable her to assist with the transition of the clients she has helped over her 28 year legal career to their new home at Doucet & Associates, while balancing her increasingly involved tenure in public service.
Eileen Paley began practicing law in 1988. Her top priority has always been providing outstanding legal services for her clients. She took a personal approach to legal representation, and focused her practice on real estate law, business law, consumer law, juvenile law, and construction law. She first began her tenure as a Councilmember in 2009. Prior to Columbus City Council, Eileen served as Commissioner for the Columbus Civil Service Commission.
Doucet & Associates Co., L.P.A. is a consumer based law firm in Dublin, Ohio that helps people with an array of legal issues from foreclosure defense to consumer litigation. The 12 lawyer firm also works with small businesses, with a focus on litigation and contract disputes.
