Attorney Steve Whetstone grew up in Thornville, Ohio. His family has been serving the medical needs of Thornville and Millersport residents for decades. His grandparents founded Whetstone Medical Clinic over 50 years ago. And his father, Dave, has been the owner and operator of the Thornville Pharmacy for over 30 years. As a result, Steve grew up seeing first hand how to best serve clients "where everybody knows everybody."

Steve did his undergraduate work at Columbus State Community College and Otterbein University. He attended the Capital University Law School and graduated with a perfect 4.0 GPA. Steve was Capital's valedictorian and was honored to speak at the graduation ceremony. Shortly thereafter, Steve aced the bar exam, scoring in the top 1% state-wide.

Steve is a dedicated family man who loves to help others and enjoys volunteering within the alcoholism and addiction recovery community.

"Helping people solve problems for a living has been such a blessing."

Here at Whetstone Legal, we are honored to be the only thing standing between our clients and huge corporations. We know how these companies operate and are used to forcing corporations to do right by their customers. Whetstone Legal highly values doing that, but finds answering clients' questions to be the most important aspect of practicing the law. So always feel free to call with any question or concern.
