Mr. Resetar focuses his practice on litigation, with an emphasis on liability defense in the retail and hospitality industries, which includes premises liability, products liability, consumer claims, negligent security and loss prevention violations. Throughout the State of Ohio, Mr. Resetar represents many Fortune 500, national, and regional corporations. Mr. Resetar strives to provide his clients with an aggressive defense when necessary, while simultaneously keeping business objectives at the forefront. Mr. Resetar understands that his clients operate businesses, and he works to ensure that a vigorous defense is both cost effective and practical. In addition to retail and hospitality, Mr. Resetar has assisted clients in a wide array of matters and legal issues, including transportation litigation, wrongful death, negligent hiring, supervision, retention, business disputes, legal malpractice, consumer contracts, contracts under the Uniform Commercial Code, construction defects, subrogation, violations of the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act, and criminal violations. In tort litigation, Mr. Resetar has successfully defended many catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims. As an adjunct to his litigation practice, Mr. Resetar also works closely with fellow Roetzel shareholder Thomas S. Zaremba to advise and represent clients relative to the development and implementation of building codes and product standards. Mr. Resetar has experience appearing for proceedings before the International Code Council (ICC), ASHRAE (formerly American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers), and National Fenestration Rating Counsel (NRFC). With his experience as a litigator, Mr. Resetar aggressively advocates to ensure that clients' interests, both financial and legal, are protected and advanced when faced with regulatory action.
Although a native of Southwest Ohio, prior to his legal career, Mr. Resetar resided in Washington, D.C. and interned for then United States Representative and current United States Senator Rob Portman. He also worked for the United States Department of State Bureau of Diplomatic Security during the Condoleezza Rice administration.
