Michael J. Maillis


Michael J. Maillis began his legal career as a Stark County Public Defender in January of 1996. He later served as a Youngstown City Prosecutor and an Assistant Mahoning County Prosecutor, where he was assigned to try major felony cases. As a prosecutor, Michael built a reputation as tough, but fair.

In 2002, Michael began representing injured people in medical malpractice, personal injury, nursing home malpractice, automobile accident and motorcycle accident cases. Michael also handles some civil rights cases and represents people seriously injured in their employment. Michael joined Kisling, Nestico & Redick in 2013. He has tried over 150 cases in his career, the majority of those to juries.

In addition to his work with injury victims at KNR, Michael has been appointed the Acting Judge of the Campbell Municipal Court when the elected judge is otherwise disposed.

Michael married his college sweetheart in 1998, the former Celeste Koulianos, and lives with her and his two children, Arianna and Nicholas, in Campbell, Ohio. He and his family are active parishioners at Archangel Michael Greek Orthodox Church in Campbell. Michael is also the creator and sponsor of the Michael Elias Maillis Scholarship for the Campbell City Schools.
