Shareholder Nathan Petrusak concentrates his practice in the areas of commercial law and civil litigation, municipal law, appellate, and bankruptcy law.  A determined trial lawyer, Mr. Petrusak is approachable, honest, and forward-thinking with his clients. He brings analytical thinking and skilled argumentation to achieve the best possible results with every case.  He chose O’Reilly Rancilio because he wanted to serve clients, businesses, and municipalities near his hometown.
