Gina Piacentino

WLFC Secretary, 2018-19

Gina M. Piacentino is the Managing Partner at The Weldele & Piacentino Law Group Co., LPA. She brings to the firm an extensive knowledge of legal practice and experience.

Gina M. Piacentino graduated from Miami University, cum laude and graduated from the University of Akron School of Law. While in law school, Gina worked for the City of Canton Prosecutor’s office in Canton, Ohio and for two boutique law firms in Akron, Ohio. She focused on representing small to mid-sized privately held companies, in facilitating real estate transactions, and in general business issues. Immediately upon graduation from law school, Gina assumed the management of the Piacentino & Piacentino Law firm. Established in Marion, Ohio, for more than 70 years, the prestigious firm specialized in litigation. She bridged between civil matters as well as overseeing all business and marketing decisions. Gina was then charged with creating and establishing the Columbus office of O’Connor Acciani & Levy. At the time, the Cincinnati based partnership had no presence in Central Ohio. Within three years her leadership and skill grew the office so that the practice quickly became a very reputable firm in Columbus. Gina specialized in personal injury litigation.

Gina currently practices in the areas of personal injury, probate, contract disputes and other civil ligation matters. She remains active in the Columbus area community and serves on several boards and committees. She has presented in several venues, speaking by invitation on a wide array of topics including subrogation, regulatory practices, ethics, client management, and business ownership.
