Local judges, attorney write law book

ELIZABETH STUDEBAKER
Feature Writer

A huge undertaking of legal research and writing, a book authored by a Fairborn attorney and two local judges, is a tool to use the law in a most effective way. One of the authors, prominent Fairborn attorney Charles M. Rowland II said, “It’s good to know the law, but it’s better to write the law book.”

Greene County Court of Common Pleas Judges Steven A. Wolaver of Fairborn and J. Timothy Campbell, Xenia, and Rowland of the firm Brown, Rowland & Kelly have completed authoring a revision to “Anderson’s Ohio Civil Practice.

The book is relied upon by attorneys statewide for up-to-date information on divergent and ever-changing legal precedent. The update will soon be sent to law firms, law libraries and courts throughout the State.

Attorneys are proud their Greene County colleagues were chosen to undertake the project. “The process was grueling, but seeing the final product and knowing that it will be used to help attorneys is a great reward,” Rowland said. Attorneys who have used it for reference are complimentary of the book that covers topics from insurance to parenting to zoning. The three were selected by the publishers based on their experience and depth of knowledge of all aspects of civil litigation.

The authors met every two weeks for more than six months to share their opinions and write on more than 50 areas of law ranging from arcane writs to complex cutting edge legal trends. Attorneys who have used it for reference are complimentary of the book that covers topics from insurance to parenting to zoning.

Judge Campbell received his bachelor of science degree from Xavier University and juris doctorate degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Law. He practiced law for 37 years and as a practicing attorney is admitted to all Ohio State courts and the Federal District courts for the Southern District of Ohio, Western Division, the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.

Judge Wolaver was raised in Greene County and admitted to practice law in Ohio in 1975. He practiced law in Fairborn and was an assistant prosecuting attorney for 26 years. He is admitted to all Ohio courts, U. S. Tax Court and U. S. Supreme Court.

Judge Wolaver received his bachelors degree from Miami University, Oxford, and juris doctor degree from the Valaparaiso University School of Law in Indiana. He is admitted to all Ohio courts, U. S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, U. S. Sixth Court of Appeals, U. S. Tax Court and U. S. Supreme Court. He has been a president of the Greene County Bar Association and a member of the Ohio State Bar Association, American Judges Association, Ohio Judicial Confrence, Ohio Common Pleas Association and serves on several statewide judicial committees. He has been inducted into the Fairborn High School Hall of Fame, received the OPAA “Assistant Prosecutor of the Year Award for the State of Ohio” and was honored nationally for his trial work.

Attorney Rowland is an accomplished trial lawyer. He was the recipient of the Community Service Award for Attorneys under the age of 40, was made a fellow to the Ohio State Bar Foundation, has served as the Xenia City prosecutor, and as special prosecutor for Greene County. He has provided assistance to the Rural Legal Aid Society of Southeast Ohio in complex civil litigation. He currently is serving his second term on the Beavercreek City School Board. He wishes to acknowledge the help and support given to him during this project by Tracy Rowland, Patricia Campbell, Mark J. Babb, Kristen Kelly, Lori Gaipo and also the consideration shown by the staff of the Greene County Common Pleas Court, Ron Mellotte, Gayle Manker, Aileen Crawford and Lois Fritz.
