    Swift conclusion

    Ron did an excellent job handling my case. He executed a quick resolution to my divorce. He explained everything in detail and provided me with the best possible outcome. It is apparent that Ron has extensive experience in handling these cases by his knowledge and tactful approach. He communicated effectively with the other party's attorney to achieve a swift conclusion.
    I highly recommend Ron and will seek his advice in the future if the need arises.

    Excellent Attorney and Staff

    I retained Ron to handle my divorce from a long marriage. I was amazed by Ron's professionalism and knowledge, and I relied on him and his staff to guide me through what proved to be a difficult process. I want to genuinely thank Ron and his office for everything! You will not find a more knowledgable and genuine attorney anywhere!

    Knowledgable, thorough and effective

    Ron guided me through an incredibly difficult custody situation regarding my son. His knowledge of the law, coupled with his thorough attention to detail, produced magnificent results in my case. He took the time to listen to my concerns and helped me with every step along the way. His office truly cares about each individual client. Ron is extremely well-respected in the legal community, and just the attorney you want to have on your side during a difficult situation.

    If you want a lawyer thats on top of his case, and be human to you, DO NOT USE HIM!

    My case was a easy case. Yet not even 12 hours ahead of our timed court date I am told me and my soon to be ex spouse have to take a course that cost $45 a piece. The course was horrible and of course it isn't the offices fault because they don't run it. BUT had we been told AHEAD like we were suppose to, we could have taken in person for free. Showing up on hearing day Ron was not even their. It was a assistant lawyer whom I have never ever met. I recommend to anyone if you want a quality lawyer who cares about your case, and keeps you well informed do not use him.

    Ronald Roman Petroff’s response: “A vast majority of people understand his or her divorce attorney's role in the greater context of his or her life. It is quite unfortunate that it is too often the case individuals who are going through difficult and emotional times in their lives blame others for their position. Most of the time, the Divorce Attorney is the easiest target. While I recognize dealing with disgruntled and frustrated people is the cost of doing business and part of my job, I just wish more people stopped blaming others and looked inwardly. Of the four negative reviews I have received on this site, my office and I bent over backwards, often times going above and beyond, to try and cater to their needs, emotions, and incessant complaining. It is demoralizing that these people use this public forum to voice concerns regarding perhaps one or two relatively minor issues which arose in many months of diligent and sophisticated legal representation. I can exceed expectations for 99% of my representation of a client, but the first time something goes wrong, I am thrown under the bus. I could spend hours of time responding to the relatively few negative reviews and comments posted on this site, but instead, I would rather simply apologize for your situation and / or dissatisfaction with minor or irrelevant issues in your case, and wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors.”

    An excellent Family Law Attorney

    Ron has helped me in my very difficult case with my ex spouse. Not only did he help me retain my children he also secured more financial benefits for my children. There is no doubt I would retain him again in the future if the need arises.

    Highly recommend Ron and his staff!

    Ron represented me throughout my divorce and then defended me again through a lengthy motion to move my children to another school district. Ron not only represented me well, he made my small case seem just as important as if it were a mutimillion dollar case.
    His knowledge of the law, his timely advice, and his quick decision making took a motion to have my children moved to a different school district become a reduction in my child support, my children remaining in their home school, and allowing my children to remain overnight with me on my days.
    My new wife and I continue to retain Ron's representation. I highly recommend Ron and his staff.

    You can do better

    I engaged Ron to represent me as a defendant in a divorce case and throughout the negotiations I felt at odds with him. Looking back at the entire experience, I don't see much about which I can even give a positive comment. He was out maneuvered by plaintiff's attorney, came to court unprepared, and I truly felt that if I didn't think of it, whatever it may have been, it wasn't thought of. More than a year after the divorce was finalized, and based on the higher level of cleverness of opposing counsel, I've been forced to hand over a lot of additional support to which my ex-spouse should have never had a claim. I know I could have changed representation at any point in the process but didn't, mainly because by the time I reached a level of strong angst I had already made a significant investment in Ron. Hindsight being what it is, I regret not taking that step.

    Highly Skilled, Professional And Humanistic Group

    Ron and his staff represented me as a defendant on a CPO case and plaintiff on my divorce case. Both cases were very complex and involved detailed data gathering and in-depth fact collection. Although they are located in Franklin County, they are very knowledgeable of Ohio law and other county court rules. Plainly speaking, they did everything possible to leave no stone un-turned. They stay up-to-date on legal revisions and apply them when other attorneys were not aware of such changes. They are clearly skilled and talented litigators but more importantly they are compassionate. My ordeal has been going on for over 18 months now and has been a very difficult journey. Ron and his staff, particularly Ben Nyhan, have showed concern for my feelings and well being and have showed sincere compassion the entire time. I am grateful for not only their excellent professionalism and high level of legal excellence, but their humanistic approach, empathy and benevolence. Their attention to detail and genuine sympathy for each case make them an excellence choice for representation.

    Highly Professional

    I just completed a very difficult divorce. All the Lawers and Staff at Petroff Law were nothing but professional, caring, informative, and patient. The circumstances of this case were very trying and stressful for me. I could always count on the entire Staff at Petroff to help encourage me, and keep me informed. I have since recommended Petroff Law to a friend who was in need of a family law attorney. I did not hesitate to recommend Ron Petroff and his firm.

    Unknown

    Mr. Petroff was always late and did very little to negotiate agreements between my wife and I. He overcharged and didn't do anything that was asked of him. He did more harm than good, by creating conflict that only made things worse. I believe if you are paying for something you should at least have it done your way with knowledgable guidance.
