Eleni A. (“Eleana”) Drakatos

I am committed to helping injured victims. I am licensed to practice law in Ohio (State and Federal Courts), the District of Columbia, and the United States Supreme Court. In 2003, I earned my law degree from Capital University School of Law, where I met my husband and law partner Dennis Yacobozzi, II. In 2014, I joined my spouse’s law practice, which became Yacobozzi | Drakatos, LLC. I represent people that have been injured due to someone else’s fault. My clients are people and families hurt in car accidents, motorcycle collisions, slip-and-falls, and due to medical negligence.

I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, but spent my entire childhood in Greece. I came to Columbus, Ohio, in 1996, to attend Ohio Wesleyan University, where I graduated in 2000 with a degree in Psychology and Neuroscience. My science background helps me understand the medicine when reviewing, negotiating, and trying injury cases.

My commitment to the practice of law extends beyond my work at the office. I enjoy working with legal organizations that help attorneys do better for their clients. In 2014, I was appointed to serve on the Board of Governors for the Ohio State Bar Association where I chair the Budget & Headquarters Committee, and the Continuing Legal Education Content Advisory Committee. I was president of the Women Lawyers of Franklin County, and have served on the Board of the Ohio Association for Justice and the Central Ohio Association for Justice.

Dennis and I enjoy spending time with our daughter. We enjoy biking on the beautiful trails of Ohio, exploring the Ohio food scene, and visiting with family and friends.

Dennis V. Yacobozzi, II

In 2006, after practicing with one of Columbus’s most pre-eminent personal injury firms, I decided to bring my expertise to my own law firm, the Yacobozzi Law Firm. After my spouse and current law partner, Eleana Drakatos joined the Firm in 2014 the name was changed to Yacobozzi | Drakatos LLC.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management with a concentration in Finance from Capital University in 1999, and am a member of Tau Pi Phi National Honor Society in Business and Economics. I graduated cum laude in 2003 from Capital University Law School where I was recognized for excellence in trial advocacy.

I was born and raised in Columbus, where I lived my entire life. Columbus is a great community with endless possibilities, which is why I continue to call it home.

I am a member of the Ohio State and Arizona Bar Associations, and the Franklin American Inns of Court. I am admitted to practice law in both Ohio (2003) and Arizona (2016), in the Federal District Court for the Southern District of Ohio (2004) and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals (2005).

In my free time, I serve as Secretary on the Board of Our Lady of Bethlehem School and Childcare, and enjoy traveling, playing the guitar, and spending time with my family.
