“Stephen Enz has been an exemplary member of the legal community here in Columbus along with being a valuable and trusted member of our firm for over seventeen years,” said former Managing Partner of Carlile Patchen & Murphy LLP, Ritchey Hollenbaugh.

He is both a member of the Ohio State Bar Association and the Columbus Bar Association where he served on the Lawyer Referral Panel, and recently on the Eagle Committee. Mr. Enz has also been distinguished with the Martindale-Hubbell® rating of AV Preeminent® for 2017, representing the highest rating for ethical standards and the highest rating for legal ability in a specific area of practice.  Mr. Enz has been a Martindale-Hubbell® ranked attorney for over 25 years.

Stephen is a lifelong resident of Ohio and involved with many civic and church groups in Central Ohio, including the formation of the Central College Church Foundation, where he serves as an officer and a trustee.
