Tannous interviewed in Columbus Business First about pro-bono effort to stem evictions in Central Ohio

Columbus Business First

Bob Tannous was interviewed in a Columbus Business First article, "How Columbus lawyers have joined the effort to stem evictions," which published on Sept. 10, 2018. The article highlights the firm's participation in a program providing pro-bono work through the Legal Aid Society of Columbus for Central Ohio residents facing eviction. Along with other area law firms, Porter Wright is working to "expand representation for people who often have to navigate unfamiliar court proceedings."

"The law is so complicated, and the process is stacked to really help out the landlord, most individuals do not know what their rights are," Tannous said. "They tend to not get that help they need, through they are entitled to that. They should be getting assistance."
