Joe Nigh was recommended to me by a friend, and I could not be happier that I followed her advice. Joe and the entire staff at Tyack, Blackmore, Liston & Nigh were professional, attentive, knowledgable, personable, and kind. They made the legal process almost pleasant (if that's really possible!) I highly recommend Joe!!

I first met Attorney Nigh (Joe) in 2008. At the time, I was in the process of interviewing several attorneys in the Columbus / North Central Ohio area for representation in a very heated and complex child custody matter. Needless to say, during the course of my search for the right lawyer, I interviewed almost a dozen attorneys.
As I presented my case materials and facts to each of them during initial consultations, most if not all were more concerned with how much of a deposit I would be able to place with them rather than exploring the very serious allegations of safety associated with my son's living arrangements at the time. Those who did express interest in my case, only did a cursory review of the evidence and were quick to dash my hopes of getting custody as a "father" in Ohio.
Joe not only took the time to actually sit down with me for almost an hour, but was the ONLY attorney who actually took the time to actually analyze the initial facts that I provided him.....and he was honest enough to tell me that my chances of getting full residential custody would be a challenge.
Throughout the next 3 years of on and off litigation, Joe continued to review copious amounts of evidence with meticulous eyes. Not only was he available to speak to me over the phone at a moment's notice, but the staff at his law firm were also there to support.
Joe's sense of professionalism extended to both me and my family as we faced a very difficult moment in our lives. Joe would have the compassion to support me, but also maintain a strong sense of unbiased advocacy for my son's best interests.
In the end, Joe's dedication to helping the court and the GAL to see the true facts and issues in my son's case resulted in me getting FULL RESIDENTIAL CUSTODY of my son.
Joe is someone who has made an indelible mark on my son's like as well as mine. I will never forget the lengths that he and his staff have gone through over the last few years.
To be honest, this was a very emotionally and monetarily trying situation as my son's custody case lasted for several years, however, the outcome in the end was well worth it. Joe's perseverance proves what a difference a dedicated attorney can make.
I would highly recommend Joe to anyone, father or mother, who has need for a strong, knowledgeable, and dedicated family attorney.

In the past, I have had horrible experiences with attorneys addressing child abuse and custody of my children. They often did not know the details of my case, rarely returned calls or emails, and overall was not effective. I hired Joseph to further address child abuse and custody of my children. Joseph and his firm work closely together to meet client's needs. I am astounded by the level of professionalism, dedication, and great customer service that Joseph and his firm provides. Joseph and his staff ALWAYS respond to phone calls and emails the same business day. He understands the sense of urgency when dealing with sensitive issues like the protection of your children. Joseph always presents himself professionally and ethically. He is a wonderful negotiator and is an effective advocate. If you utilize Joseph's services, you can feel confident that you will have a strong attorney and firm by your side. My case went to a trial and I could not have asked for more. Joseph proved our case and the judge ruled on our behalf. He was prepared, focused, and was our tool to have justice and protection FINALLY. This was truly life changing and my family and I will be forever thankful to Joseph and his staff.

I utilized the services of Mr. Nigh to assist with several issues my juvenile daughter was having and had been arrested for. Since my daughter lived with her mother i retained Joe just to ensure that she was dealt with fairly by the court system. In the end i walked away with custody of my daughter because the other home was deemed unfit by the court. Joe presented many things the court had been unaware of previously and i believe it really helped my daughter in the long term.

Joe did an excellent job representing me and was pleased with the work that he performed. Joe was easy to reach and answered all questions that I had in a timely manner. If I ever need an attorney again,I would hire Joe.

Joe handled my divorce with a wonderful sensitivity to my situation and kept me informed and up to date every step of the way. I have worked with Joe since he handled my divorce for a few custody agreement issues and each time he met and exceeded all expectations. I couldn't imagine going through the process with anyone else. I have recommended Joe to several acquaintances of mine and will continue to do so in the future.
