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.
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.
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.
I would have appreciated more guidance and communication. I needed more information at times than what I was given to understand what I needed to do to fight for my right in this process. Regardless of the lack of communication, Mr. Petroff and his team were able to provide me with the legal support and information gathering to convince my ex and his attorney to drop their demands. Overall, I am happy with the time frame and outcomes of my proceedings.
Ron has handled a number of domestic court issues on behalf of me and my children . Ron took all of the time needed to explain and educate me on the protocol and processes that the courts require. Ron was a proactive liaison to the Guardian Ad Litem in my case, as well as an advocate for my children's best interest! Ron's expertice in the Franklin County court system proved quite valuable during the course of our cases! Communications with Ron and the office staff was excellent and I never felt uninformed! I have recommended and will continue to recommend other friends to Ron, for his professional and sincerely delivered services!
Mr. Petroff was a huge help in my situation. He was very imformative and responsive. I would use him again in a heartbeat.
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.
