“It is an honor to serve as President of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation and continue its rich legacy of charitable giving and dedicated service to the Cleveland community and beyond,” Levasseur said in his Statement of Presidential Priorities and Values.

“The Bar Foundation’s mission says it all – ‘Lawyers Giving Back.’  It is who we are and what we strive to do as a group on a daily basis: finding ways to utilize the many gifts all of us have been blessed to receive throughout our careers for the continued benefit of our broader community and those that can truly benefit from our time and talents. Whether it be through The 3RS, the Louis Stokes Scholars Program or any of the other myriad programs and initiatives funded through the Bar Foundation, our impact continues to grow on an annual basis.”

At Hahn Loeser, Levasseur is a commercial litigator and trial attorney representing clients in business disputes around the country. In addition to his client representation, he serves as the firm’s General Counsel.
