COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State Bar Association this week recognized Youngstown attorney A. Robert Steiskal for 50 years of service to the community and the legal profession.
Steiskal graduated from Ohio Northern Pettit College of Law in 1965. Before taking the bar exam, he joined the U.S. Air Force, where he obtained the rank of captain. He served in Vietnam in 1968 and 1969 as an investigator and counterintelligence officer before his honorable discharge in 1970.
After joining the Ohio bar, he held several positions in the legal field, including associate to attorney Bernard J. Wilkes, a fellow Ohio Northern graduate, and associate attorney with the firm Henderson, Covington, Stein, Donchess and Messenger. Steiskal went into private practice in Mahoning County in 1979. While continuing to practice law and serve his clients, he also engaged with his family’s commercial real estate business.
He was recognized as part of the OSBA’s District 13 virtual annual meeting. District 13 includes nearly 400 attorneys who practice in Columbiana and Mahoning counties.
The Ohio State Bar Association, founded in 1880, represents 26,000 members of the bench and bar of Ohio. The OSBA serves both its members and the public by promoting the highest standards in the practice of law and the administration of justice.
