Service &



Giovanna and John met in 2011 working for a law firm in North Olmsted.  As the two collaborated on countless client affairs, they found that each brings different perspectives and varying life experiences which not only complimented each other's work but also benefited the clients. Bremke Law opened its doors in 2014 in Elyria and when John joined Giovanna in 2017, the firm moved to its present location in Avon. Today they promote their individual expertise in different fields, their practical approach to issues, and their family-centric values to individuals, families and businesses. While clients appreciate the ability to work with just one firm to address all matters across life’s spectrum, it's the team's compassionate approach that endears the clients and friendships are created.
