this was my first time ever going through anything like this and ever having to get a lawyer for anything. I was very pleased with everything carol had done and helped me with. She was extremely knowledgable and kept things pretty smooth as far as not having to end up in a court room in front of a judge. I highly recommend her if you are looking for custody/parenting time lawyer!!!!!

I was facing 25 to life, my lawyer Carol Risk and her partner at the The Risk Firm fought tooth and nail to prove my innocence, and because of Carol I am a free man now. She is a great and very intelligent lawyer, and will fight hard for you. Also everyone at The Risk Firm are really nice and treat you like family. If your looking for a attorney, I highly recommend this law firm!

I spoke with several lawyers before Carol Risk. She returned my call promptly and her rates were within reason. She scheduled a time to meet several days later regarding my divorce. She was very thorough and explained how certain information would protect me in the future even if I did not see a need for it now. Better save now than sorry later. I really wanted to have the divorce completed by the end of the year. Carol Risk called me personally on the morning of Christmas Eve to inform me the judge had signed the papers and the divorce was final, giving me a new start with a new year. If you are in need of a lawyer, I would highly recommend Carol Risk and her firm.

In a male-dominated industry, Carol isn't afraid to stand up and fight for her client.
Carol's previous experience as a child support prosecutor is a huge advantage when litigating for support. The experience gave her the knowledge and understanding of what I could realistically anticipate to be awarded. My ex was voluntarily underemployed. With proper documentation Carol was able to prove his income potential and her estimate was spot-on what the judge awarded after imputing his wages.
Carol had litigated in my judge’s courtroom many times prior so she knew exactly what the judge expected... organization and no drama. Carol was prepared and extremely organized, three copies of each exhibit already marked in order. She had thoroughly thought through my case, knowing exactly what to present and when.
As hard-nosed as she is in the courtroom though, she is the exact opposite sitting in her office. She too is a mom, so she completely understood my concerns for my children. She is compassionate and very easy to talk to.
On my last visit to her office I noticed a plaque on the wall. Carol is nationally ranked in the 10% percent of women attorneys under 40 years old. While I didn't notice the plaque previously, I was definitely not surprised when I read it. Carol is a nationally ranked, class act attorney!

Unlike attorneys I have dealt with in the past, Carol always had time for my case. She really has an eye for the little things! She caught onto things in my divorce that otherwise could have really made life hectic. Her attention to detail is phenomenal!! She made my divorce simple and with genuine concern for me and my children got it done FAST! I WILL recommend her to anyone seeking any legal advice! Thanks so much!!

Carol is an excellent attorney. She recently represented me in a child support case and I couldn't have made a better choice. She is compassionate, supportive, tenacious and dedicated to serving her clients. She was very committed to my case from the start and has made herself available to me in the future with my case if needed. I highly recommend Carol.

I have known Carol for over a decade. We attended Salmon P. Chase together and have been practicing in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area for seven years. I do not know any other attorney that is as capable as she is or that works as hard. She is fearless in court and will do whatever it takes to fight for her clients. She tirelessly goes above and beyond and is driven to always achieve the best results. I routinely collaborate with her on legal issues and respect her professionalism as well as trust her opinions and advice. If I ever need to hire an attorney I will go straight to her office. I strongly recommend hiring her for any legal issue.

When I needed to hire an attorney (my first experience) I was very hesitant, after seeing and hearing less than desirable things about the way lawyers are. It's a well known fact there's a stigma where lawyers are concerned. However, I was in dire need of retaining an attorney, so I did just that. Unbeknownst to me at the time, the lawyer I hired would not only calm my fears about attorneys in general, but actually change my view on them altogether. Carol Risk is NOTHING like any lawyer I'd ever seen in action. Right from the start, she had a wonderful bedside manner, which put me at ease within the first 30 seconds of our first meeting. Carol knows the law inside and out, which makes her a GREAT lawyer. She's also very protective over and personable with her clients, which makes her an OUTSTANDING lawyer. I was very happy with the work she did for me in my previous case. So happy, in fact, I have hired her again for a current case. It's a huge, messy nightmare of a divorce and custody case, but with Carol by my side, working with me, I can rest easy, knowing everything will be done that possibly can be for the best outcome possible. She cares, which sets her apart from any lawyer I've seen at work. Lawyers like Carol are very few and far between. That being said, if I should ever need legal counsel in the future, and for anyone I know or know of, needing such, Carol Risk will always be the ONE. In my opinion, there are no others. If you want a lawyer who knows the ins and outs of the law, they're all over the place. If you want a lawyer who is extremely knowledgeable AND personable, who makes you feel your case is not just her job to represent, but is actually important to her, Carol is definitely the attorney for you. I've seen the relationships (or should I say, lack thereof) between attorneys and their clients, and I must say there's a lot left to be desired, typically speaking. Since hiring Carol, I've felt as though I have something special as far as my relationship with my lawyer goes. She almost feels like a friend. That's how much she's put into both cases I've hired her for. I'm not a person who's financially blessed. In fact, I'm a single mom of two, counting pennies...but Carol is worth and deserving of every single one that's owed to her. As I stated in my title for this review, she's more than an attorney. She's a confidant. She's been my saving grace. Because of her, I have faith that there are genuinely good people in her field of work...not many, but Carol is definitely one of the few. I'll never look anywhere else for legal counsel, and I will always refer anyone in need of legal counsel to her. I believe she will always give her clients the best experience possible, as she's not only passionate about what she does...she's passionate about people. Carol is a rare breed. I've raved about her long enough. See for yourself!!

Ms. Risk took care of everything! I felt she helped me though a very rough time. She was always professional and prepared. I am truly grateful she was there to help me.
