A highly skilled investigator at Gervelis Law Firm of Ohio
Rudy Zemelka is one of the Gervelis Law Firm's investigators. Prior to joining the team at our law firm, Rudy spent 31 years in law enforcement with the Ohio State Highway Patrol, and he brings that experience to every motor vehicle accident case we handle.
As a trooper at the Ravenna Post for 14 years, Rudy patrolled the highway and directly investigated traffic crashes. As a sergeant at the Canfield Post for 15 years, Rudy supervised troopers and reviewed their reports, in addition to patrolling the highways himself. And as a lieutenant in the Hiram Post for 2 years, he supervised all other officers at the post and was responsible for communications with the public, the news media and Turnpike officials. Rudy's experience at all levels of the Highway Patrol gives him incredible insight into accident scenes and helps our Rapid Investigation Team secure valuable evidence.
In addition to his experience at the Highway Patrol, Rudy spent 13 years as Chief of Police at the Humility of Mary Hospitals in Youngstown and Warren, Ohio, where he was responsible for both civil and criminal investigations.
