Columbus Client Testimonials


“Oliver was really good at staying on top of things. He always got back to me very quickly. He was very easy to work with and always kept me up to date. Oliver always made sure I understood what was going on with my case. He was great! He really took the time to break things down for me. He always asked my opinion, he’d then give me his and together we’d make a decision. Oliver would keep me informed if things changed as soon as it happened. If I didn’t like what took place, he would act quickly on that and keep me updated the entire time. … I’ve never worked with a divorce attorney before, but I have worked with attorneys prior to this. I have to say, Oliver was just a real good guy and a pleasure to work with!”


“Melinda has been very responsive to everything I’ve asked, and [I have been] given very good advice. Melinda has been very accurate. The quality of her representation has been very strong. Melinda and the firm have stood out from the very beginning. The initial welcome packet left me feeling that the firm has a really good understanding of challenges I may face. I have never questioned Melinda’s commitment or the firms’ on seeing this through. Ultimately, I’m confident already that we will reach an agreement that’s both respectable and fair. …”


“Samuel is outstanding! He is five star in my book, and that is not contingent on the outcome! I am 100% confident Samuel is doing everything he can. In my profession, I have had the opportunity to work with many attorneys personally and professionally and Samuel is a top-notch performer. He doesn’t just tell me what I want to hear. In fact, at times he has to do the exact opposite and that’s okay. I know that he is being completely honest with me at all times, keeping my best interest in mind. He absolutely always gets back to me. I have already referred some to Samuel. I am very careful with this kind of stuff. I wont put my name out there if I’m not 100% sure. I know Samuel is the real deal.”
