About Me

I was admitted to the Ohio Bar after graduating from the Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. I have two years of experience working for Court of Claims of Ohio and five years of experience in the insurance industry prior to law school. I practice in all areas of Domestic Relations and Juvenile Law.  In addition, I also serve as a court appointed guardian ad litem for minor children in custody disputes.  Although I do not discriminate in my selection of clients, a large part of my practice involves helping fathers obtain custody, shared parenting, or meaningful and substantial parenting time with their children particularly fathers who were never married to their children's mother and often face an difficult legal road.

If you have a legal issue in one of my practice areas, please do not hesitate to contact me to set up a free consultation.

  • Elizabeth A. Warren

    I highly endorse Attorney Tamms. I recently worked with him on a family law matter and I found that his approach was direct and solution oriented. Mr. Tamms ensured that all the details that mattered to his client were attended to-which made all the difference in the world. He was responsive to me as opposing counsel, easy to reach, and very accessible. By using this approach, Mr. Tamms was a strong advocated for his client. If you are looking for a family law attorney, I would recommend Mr. Tamms.
