The Mansour Gavin story: 1954 to today.

The story of Mansour Gavin traces back to 1954, when it was established as a partnership between Reese Dill and Henry Zetzer. Ernest Mansour joined in 1955 and over the years, the firm evolved, growing its size and reputation. In 1977, the firm restructured and became known as Mansour, Gavin, Gerlack & Manos Co., LPA and in 2014, we rebranded as Mansour Gavin LPA and undertook our first office move in more than 50 years and relocated to North Point Tower.

Ernest Mansour, renowned for his work in Corporate and Business Law, remained dedicated to his work until his passing in 2022. His legacy of civic engagement and community involvement continues to inspire our firm’s values.

Today, Mansour Gavin offers a wide range of legal services to a diverse clientele, including many successful privately held and publicly traded corporations. While we routinely handle complex legal matters, our primary focus remains on providing exceptional service to small and middle-market clients in Northeast Ohio.
