Contract cancellation policy

No cancellations are accepted after the placement deadline. When new art or instructions are not received by the deadline, previous ads will be repeated according to contract.

All advertisers who do not fulfill their complete contract will be rebilled for the rate difference between the number of times their ads actually ran and the number contracted.


A 5 percent discount is offered to advertisers who prepay a year’s advertising and run at least three times in Ohio Lawyer. Payment must accompany order.


It is the advertiser’s responsibility to review ads and report errors immediately after the first run. The OSBA is responsible for only one incorrect insertion.
