For father and daughter Bill and Amy Wuliger, the law is not just the family business, it’s their passion.
A New Start
Over the course of Bill’s career, he has mentored dozens of young lawyers. He’s taken great pride in their accomplishments and has often been heard to say, “A piece of them is in me, and hopefully, a piece of me is in them.” His daughter, Amy, was once one of those young lawyers. In 2016, 47 years after Bill began serving the legal needs of the Cleveland community, and 19 years after Amy followed him into the legal profession, Bill and Amy transitioned their practice to a new law firm: Wuliger & Wuliger, a boutique litigation firm dedicated to helping clients who find themselves overwhelmed by circumstances.
“In the illustrious words of Nobel Laureate Bob Dylan, ‘the ladder of law’ should have ‘no top and no bottom,’ but in an imperfect world, sometimes you have to fight for justice.” – William T. Wuliger
The American justice system, though often touted as the best in the world, is a quagmire of pitfalls for the uninitiated. At Wuliger & Wuliger, we are committed to guiding you through the wilderness.
We try cases. While it’s always best to resolve disputes amicably, we appreciate and understand that isn’t always possible. Having an experienced trial lawyer is critical to maximizing the value of your case regardless of whether it is ultimately resolved via settlement or by a jury of your peers. Bill, Amy and Mark have collectively tried over three hundred cases in their careers. The young lawyers who join our team do so because they want to pursue careers as trial lawyers, and they gain valuable experience working alongside seasoned professionals. And if you’re looking for legal work outside of the courtroom, our well-rounded team of lawyers are equally well-versed in negotiating transactions, legal drafting and writing appeals.
Nationally experienced with a local focus
Our lawyers have represented clients in federal and state courts all over the country, but each of us is first and foremost an Ohioan, born and raised. We love the Cleveland community and are dedicated to achieving justice at the local level.
Quality over quantity
We aren’t a big firm, and we don’t take every case. But if we take yours, you can be sure we will dedicate all our resources to you. We are hard-working, performance-driven, zealous advocates who listen to our clients and fight for their interests.
Responsive to our clients
Neglect is the number one complaint against lawyers. At Wuliger & Wuliger, every client is important, and no client will be ignored. We will ensure that you stay informed regarding the progress of your case and will promptly return your phone calls and emails. If you have complaints or concerns, we will hear you out and will not rest until we’ve reached a satisfactory resolution.
Creative problem solvers
Our team is creative, energetic and passionate about the law and this country. Law is not static – it is ever evolving. As a result, it’s important to always look for new and innovative ways to address legal dilemmas. We strive to maintain a culture of openness and collaboration. We believe every problem has a solution and will work to find one for you.
Honest and ethical professionals
All lawyers must take an oath of office to be admitted to the bar. In Ohio, that oath includes a promise to support the Constitution and the laws of the United States and the state of Ohio, and to abide by the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct governing our profession. At Wuliger & Wuliger, we take our oath of admission seriously and live by it every day.
More than just co-workers
We’re a small firm and we stick together. Although Wuliger & Wuliger was only founded in 2016, our lawyers have practiced together for years. Some of us even started out as law clerks for Bill Wuliger. We believe in mentoring young lawyers and rewarding their accomplishments, and we support each other in and out of the courtroom. As a result, we’ve built a family of loyal professionals who work as a team to tackle whatever complexities an individual case may require.
Areas of Practice
“The minute you read something that you can't understand, you can almost be sure that it was drawn up by a lawyer.” ― Will Rogers
We believe in keeping things simple but comprehensive. You should be able to understand what you are signing without having to resort to a legal dictionary while still feeling confident that you’ve been fully protected. It’s a big part of what we do.

“My legal career began in the service of the poor, and it is my fervent hope that the young men and women who have saddled up to ride with us will leave having made the world a better place.” - William T. Wuliger
