About Urban Co., L.P.A.

A Trusted, Local Law Firm for More Than Three Decades

Urban Co., L.P.A. is a full-service law firm founded in Warren, Ohio by Attorney William J. Urban, Jr over 30 years ago. Like many young practitioners, Attorney Urban represented clients in many areas of law. As he gained experience, however, Attorney Urban realized that efficiency related to the specialization in law practice was the key to providing great service to clients.

Attorney Urban was one of the first lawyers to implement technology into the practice of law. He partnered with a software engineer to create practice management software specifically related to the fields of workers' compensation and debt collection. At the same time, he sharpened the focus of the firm to several specific practice areas.

Those practice areas include:

Urban Co., L.P.A. is Here to Help

In 1990, the firm constructed the building that it currently occupies at 434 High Street NE, in downtown Warren, which is just three blocks east of the Trumbull County Courthouse. This project was one of the first offices to be constructed solely to facilitate the efficient practice of law. Its unique features include conference rooms for attorney-client meetings, which are separate and outside of the attorney’s private workspace. In addition, the second floor of the building is specifically designed to facilitate the large volume of collection matters that the firm maintains at any given time.

In 2018, Attorney Urban moved on to his well-deserved retirement. Attorneys Anthony P. Christine, David J. Graora, Patrick E. Parry, Mark Standohar and Mary Ellen Ditchey carry on the work of the firm, with Attorney Christine serving as its current President.
