I thought Mr. Petroff was extremely professional and well versed in small business practices as well as small business litigation. I have had dozens of experiences with lawyers over the past five years and I thought Ron was second to none. His personal touch and attention to detail was surely helpful in my case. I will continue to use Ron Petroff for many years to come.

Ron is a high integrity person who puts the needs of his clients first. He was reliable and able to help me navigate down the correct path.

After interviewing several attorneys for this case, I chose Ron because I felt comfortable with him and his prices were fair.
My case went from mediation, to divorce, to a multi-state custody fight. Ron was extremely helpful and effective throughout. I had several goals when hiring Ron. He was upfront during the interview process with how he could meet my expectations and the chances of my success. Ron was spot-on throughout.
I believe his knowledge and experience with the Franklin county court system was what gave me a big advantage. We always seemed to be one step ahead of my now ex-spouse. My divorce and custody issue ended relatively quickly because of a technicality that Ron was able to exploit. From start to finish, including the custody aspect, the whole process was complete in less than 6 months. This would not have happened without Ron!
Because of my experience with Ron, I recommended him to a friend and that custody issue is being resolved in the same professional manner. Ron will be the first attorney that I recommend to anyone in these circumstances.

I am current client of Ron Petroff who also retained him in previous post decree family case. At every step I was kept informed of the current status of my case as well as what our next steps were going to be. Ron was thorough and knowledgeable in every aspect of my case and always paid attention to the details. I always felt confident that he had my best interest in mind and that I was not just "a case" for him.
As stated above I have retained Ron again . Upon receiving a notice that a modification request had been filed I did not hesitate to call Ron and retain him. What stands out to me about Ron is he is straightforward and honest about what is to come in your case. When sending the firm all of my information I had a detailed conversation with them on all necessary steps that would need to be taken. Whenever I have a question an email or phone call has been returned within the day. He filed the initial paperwork within a day of our conversation. I am confident that if this does come before a judge Ron's knowledge of family law will be invaluable my case.

In helping me evaluate the legal implications of a particular business investment, Ron provided insightful and unbiased advice. His attention on this matter allowed me to make an informed decision in a timely manner, and I was able to feel completely comfortable with my decision. Furthermore, Ron has followed up with me multiple times on this manner and kept me abreast of new information that may be pertinent to our work together. I trust Ron as my attorney and definitely plan to use him again in the future.

I have known Ronald for over 20 years. During that time he has proven to be a friend, mentor and wonderful legal advisor, especially during the toughest of times. The legal process can be daunting to some but Ronald is kind and sincere and understands how to hold his clients hand all the way through until the very end. i would highly recommend him to anyone.

Unfortunate circumstances left me needing a lawyer. I interviewed a few and chose Ron. His fees were reasonable and he was on top of my needs from day one. He helped me out in a difficult time and exceeded my expectations

Ron did a great job leading me through a difficult divorce. There were many complex issues in my case and I feel that Ron addressed each one completely and fairly. He took his time to explain different scenarios and options to me and effectively advocated my position to my former spouse’s attorney. As difficult as it was to end my marriage, I wanted to be involved with every aspect of my case. Ron and I had many conversations and he allowed me to make decisions with him, instead of just directing me. Each time I called his office or arrived for an appointment, I was greeted professionally and given the assistance I required. I was both pleased and impressed with Ron’s work as well as the character and demeanor of the entire suite. I will certainly recommend Ron, and the entire McNair Petroff team, to any of my friends or colleagues who are facing the end of their marriage.

I recently went through a very emotional, contested divorce case and I feel extremely lucky that I had the guidance and counsel of Attorney Petroff throughout the entire experience. I felt like he truly understood my situation and that of my children. He took the time to explain the complex procedure involved in these matters. He cared about my case and treated me with respect. I would highly recommend Attorney Petroff to anyone in need of divorce or other family law representation.

Ron has the unique ability to view a business as both a partner and its counsel. This creates an empathetic and professional perspective. He has been an asset to our company for several years.

I highly recommend Attorney Ronald Petroff. He is one of the more knowledgeable and well educated attorneys in Central Ohio. He is passionate and reasonable. He is aggressive when he has to be and charming when necessary. If you are going through a divorce, child custody matter, or other family law issues, you should definately consult with Mr. Petroff.

I was referred to Mr. Petroff for a pending divorce through my work. I will be working with them to get him removed from their referral list. At my first meeting, he made claims that I would not owe any child support since me and my wife's incomes were so similar. He failed to tell me I would be solely responsible for non-insurance covered medical, extra-curricular activities and college payments. So basically hundreds of dollars a month (or the equivalent of child support). I also asked him if we could cap the non-insurance covered medical payments to protect me in case one of my children had a serious medical issue so I was not the only one paying out of pocket. He replied, "good idea". Are you kidding me? Is that not the first thought that a lawyer should have in this circumstance. Is it the client's responsibility to suggest this??!! He kept going back and forth on what I would owe out of my Scottade account, checking and savings. I didn't know until after the settlement what I still owe. He had the wrong day in the shared parenting plan and then needed to re-negotiate to get agreement on the previously agreed upon days. One of the agreements had "forging" instead of "forgoing" that I also had to point out. I didn't feel he fought hard for my best interests and was definitley not satisfied with the outcome. At the hearing he told the other lawyer he would be working with her to get the remiaining family pictures for me but he never followed up on that even after I emailed him asking the status. Definitely sub par work for expensive price. The list of issues goes on and on. I would definitely look for another divorce attorney outside of him or his firm.
