Practice Areas

Pickrel, Schaeffer and Ebeling has represented businesses and individuals throughout the greater Dayton area for over 100 years.   We are based in downtown Dayton, Ohio and for the convenience of our clients north of I-70, PS&E has opened a second office in Troy, Ohio across from the Miami County Courthouse.   The legal team at PS&E possesses an intimate familiarity with the region, our leaders and the economy. We strongly believe that this insight and these close connections are why clients looks to us to provide more efficient and effective results.

Below you will find a brief description of the different Areas of Practice.  As opposed to our attorneys focusing on all areas of practice, we find it best that each individual attorney focuses on a concentrated area of law.  If a legal issue spans across multiple areas of practice, we work together as a team to provide you with the best legal advice and giving you the combined strength of many attorneys working on your issue.

It’s good business to look ahead to the future; identify needs, find opportunities and make plans. Today’s successful people do just that.

We’ve been pleased with our experience working with Pickrel, Schaeffer and Ebeling. We’ve had the pleasure of working with Mike Sandner on commercial contract review and document preparation. Mike is very approachable, responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommend.

Your law firm is second to none. Seriously, you cannot go wrong engaging these guys because they are the best in the business. I have used them for my wife and myself for personal estate planning. My wife was very impressed and pleased which is always a good thing. I have also referred several business clients to them for various purposes and they all report back the experience they had with your firm was wonderful. Thank you for all you do and keep up the GREAT work!

Mike Sandner and the firm’s team of attorneys are always responsive and get the job down at a very high level. There is no other firm I would consider working with. They are always very fair with their billing which is very refreshing for such a large firm. Truly one-stop for all legal issues. Thanks for being a part of our team!!

As a small, woman-owned business, I have had trouble finding a legal firm that would take my business’s legal needs seriously until I was put into contact with Jeff Senney at Pickrel, Schaeffer, and Ebling, LPA. The team at Pickrel, Schaeffer, and Ebling have been very helpful. They have treated me and my business with professionalism and attention to detail and I am very pleased with the help they have provided.

We received excellent service from this firm. The IRS was billing us over one million dollars. After working with Jeff Senney attorney. We were able to clear it up with twenty thousand. Jeff and his assistant Katie were a lifesaver. I can’t say enough great things about this great law firm and this attorney Jeff Senney.

PS&E was recommended by a friend. I contacted Paul Zimmer on a Monday. He and Gabrielle Neal go right on my case. It was resolved before the end of the week. I was super pleased with the outcome and very relieved. Nice people to deal with and very professional. Highly recommended.

We have been using PS&E for over 15 yrs. They are a full-service law firm. They have helped us with not only business issues, but personal ones as well. Just recently redoing my trust and of course, they are handling that. You name it, they have an expert in that field on staff.

I can’t express how pleased I was to work with P.S&E. They made the process of starting my own LLC incredibly easy and stress-free. Highly recommended!

Kristina Curry and the team at PS&E are awesome. You expect every lawyer to be knowledgeable, and Kristina’s comprehension and quick-thinking skills are unmistakeably clear. What you don’t necessarily expect from a lawyer are speed, responsiveness, and kind-hearted graciousness, which is the vibe I got from everyone at PS&E, even though I’m not a significant customer. Kudos.

I would highly recommend PS&E. They are intelligent, creative, and kind attorneys who truly care about their clients. Matt Sorg recently helped me with a stressful matter on very short notice. Jeff Senney, Paul Zimmer, and Matt Stokely have also provided excellent guidance to me and/or my former clients in a variety of areas.

Attorney Jeff Senney with Prickrel, Schaeffer, and Ebeling, LPA, helped the Dayton Hispanic Chamber form a charitable foundation. They made things run smoothly and I really appreciate their professionalism, commitment, and empathetic side. They are always ready to support the community!

I worked with Pickrel, Schaeffer & Ebeling, and in more specifically with one of its shareholders Jeff Senney, who represented us in a tax case with the Internal Revenue Service. While the process was slow, Jeff was able to work closely with our accountant and guide us through the process. His expertise, research abilities, hard work, flexibility, good character, calm demander, and excellent communication skills helped us achieve a favorable outcome. He always had the resources of the Firm available. Our experience with Jeff and the Firm was professional and enjoyable (as much as it could be given the situation.) I certainly recommend Jeff and Pickrel, Schaeffer & Ebeling.
