Denise Mirman is the managing partner of Friedman & Mirman Co. LPA, a nine-lawyer firm that practices family law exclusively. She has been rated "Superb" by Avvo. She has also been listed in Best Lawyers in America in Family Law for several years, a distinction limited to just 1% of the practicing attorneys in the country as voted upon by other lawyers, and she is the Best Lawyers in America 2015 Lawyer of the Year in Family Law in Central Ohio. She has been included in Super Lawyers every year since inception and is on several "top lists" in Columbus and Ohio. The firm has also been named a First Tier law firm in Family Law by Best Lawyers. Ms. Mirman has also achieved the peer review rating of "AV-Preeminent" (the highest rating available) under Martindale-Hubbell's rating system for legal ability and ethical standards.
The firm's partners are experienced trial lawyers, but they know that litigation is not always the best solution, and they are accomplished negotiators. The firm is the first family law firm in Central Ohio to offer an alternative dispute resolution division, Friedman & Mirman Civil Solutions. Denise regularly represents clients in divorces and dissolutions in various counties throughout Central Ohio, in all areas of family law, with an emphasis on complex business valuations, custody litigation, and support, retirement, and property division issues. Please see the full website, www.friedmanmirman.com, for more information about Denise and the firm.
Denise is very active in the Central Ohio community, including currently serving as a member of the Board of Directors of the Alzheimer's Association Central Ohio Chapter.
Cash, Check, Credit Card
Denise Mirman is smart, aggressive and an extremely talented trial lawyer. She understands sophisticated financial matters, which makes her a formidable opponent. Yet she has excellent relationships in the bar, making it possible for her to negotiate even in difficult cases. Her word is her bond, and lawyers know that. She has the ability to put clients at ease, even in the stress-filled environment of divorce. I have referred family law clients to her for years, and will continue to do so.
