Practice areas
  1. Divorce and separation
    40%
    A divorce lawyer helps you if you no longer want to be married. Whether you want a legal separation or the marriage ended, divorce lawyers assist you to arrange financial and family matters, typically in a negotiation with your spouse's lawyer. Alimony, child custody, child support, and a fair division of community assets (like who keeps the house or how your checking and savings accounts are divided) are matters that a divorce lawyer is trained to help determine.

    27 years

  2. Probate
    40%
    Probate is the legal process used to carry out a person's will after their death; a probate attorney advises you on how to perform the steps in the process. If there is no will, the probate attorney advises which steps need to be taken to satisfy the state laws of intestate estates.

The Guy You Want On Your Side
It was refreshing to use the services of an attorney who did not try to tell me how perfect everything was in my case and just bluntly tell me what my options were and how likely they would be for success or failure. I hired Rad for my divorce and a will contest and was completely satisfied with my representation. He is a great advocate and a realistic counselor for his clients. Not all attorneys are worth the money they charge, but Rad was worth every penny.

No other lawyer is needed
I say that because Rad will find an attorney for you if he can not help you. I have hired him 5-6 times since he opened his practice and he always either takes care of my cases or gets me to someone who has helped me. He takes your problems, makes them his own, and will go to the mat for you! I have used Rad for two divorces and two probates and would never want any other attorney. He can be blunt at times, but I'd rather hear the cold hearted truth than a salesman. Good fella!

Honest and reliable
Radford has been patient and answered every question and concern I had about my case. Everything he says he will do, he does. My son was taken away and he got him brought back home to me. I had a prior attorney for several months and Radford did more in two months than my prior attorney did in seven months. I can’t express my appreciation for what he has done for me, and I would highly recommend Him to anyone.

Amazing Lawyer Save my Kids and Me!
Mr. Dimmick has been an amazing lawyer hands down. He has opened up the opportunity for me to have my kids again, He has always been available to talk to and explained things very well. He went to court with me and stood up for me and my rights as the father of my kids. We have went through mediation and court together actually. He also gave me the courage to stand up for myself and my kids which I know is not part of what I paid him for but he took that time time listen and help me understand the truth of what was going on. Mr. Dimmick has been very proactive in my case always looking ahead and let me know what was coming up . The money that we have paid him I feel was very reasonable and can't ever compare to the work that he has done for the kids and I. I would recommend him 1000% with out question.

Great guy, Great attorney!
Mr. Dimmick was professional and kind. He walked us through a very sensitive matter. Law suites can wear you down and sometimes they don’t work out the way you want them to. He made sure to let us know how things would go from his years of experience. If you need an attorney to help you with family matters, Mr. Dimmick is your guy.

Thank you Mr. Dimmick!
I found myself in a rough situation after following some bad advice during my divorce. I reached out to Mr. Dimmick and he immediately helped me to understand the situation and what needed to be done to correct it. He helped me through a very tough time and I can't recommend him highly enough! Thank you!

Outstanding Results
 Mr. Dimmick represented my son in Cincinnati who has a traumatic brain injury. His son's mother and her husband filed suit to have him taken off the birth certificate and all his parental rights taken away. Rad produced results above and beyond our expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

A Lawyer's Lawyer!
I've been practicing law for 23 years...but there are things that even I don't know. When i run into one of those, I call Rad Dimmick. He has represented me in multiple matters, not the least of which was a breach of contract on the sale of our primary home. The buyer backed out last minute with no reason... the Realtor said "Oh well... this happens. We will just sell it to somoene else". ??? I said What??? "THIS doesn't happen... at least not legally!". Now we have two homes, two mortgages, and alot of stress. This buyer was not willing to close on our home. I didn't know what to do... and my wife says... "Call Rad!"! Within 10 months (a record for that kind of lawsuit)... we had a judgment for the closing of our home, plus a quite large sum of damages on top of the purchase price... including all attorney fees. WHOA... what a relief. I know that i could not have done that myself. I'm just grateful for lawyers like Rad Dimmick. If you hire him... you will be uber pleased with the result. He's a fighter for sure.

My " Forever" attorney!
Wow there's so much that I can say about Mr. Dimmick! My stepfather died with a substantial estate. Unfortunately he didn't leave a will. Mr. Dimmick explained the process in layman's terms. He also communicated to the family every step that he would take . Not only did he keep us informed, he also periodically gave us personal phone calls just to see how we were doing. He was totally available to answer any questions in a timely manner. Losing a loved one can be stressful and the legal process can be difficult to navigate, but Mr. Dimmick was both profesand caring. caring. I highly recommend this attorney 100%!

5 STAR+
Radford is very gifted in his ability to navigate the turbulent waters of Family disputes, Trust Law, and the Courts. He helped us achieve a more than satisfactory outcome in a matter involving sibling co-trustees that were acting improperly. He made sure that we understood the pros and cons of each step/action we took.

Best attorney I have used!
I am currently using Mr. Dimmick. I must say he is one of the most sympathetic and caring people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He listens, he is very thorough in his investigations of the case. He takes his time to explain things and makes sure you understand everything. He answers every single question. He responds promptly to emails. He is honest and upfront about the case,, how he will handle the case,, and what happens each step of the way. If he is unable to answer your phone calls he returns the calls as soon as humanly possible. He has an absolutely wonderful personality and maintains an excellent professionalism. I would not hesitate one second to use his services again and I will certainly recommend him to anyone!

Laura
As a former paralegal I was not looking forward to hiring an attorney when I knew it was inevitable. I know how difficult it can be to get an attorney that wants a particular case and has the time to work on that case. Radford was attentive from the beginning and it was apparent to me very quickly that he "got it". He understood the difficulty of closing an estate between grieving family members and was able to give me the truth, good legal advice and be respectful of the emotional circumstances. I know first hand how infuriating it is to summarize your case each time you have contact with your attorney. I never did that with Radford---because he was actually working on it! He made the process seamless and I wasn't blinded with anxiety. That is really all a client can ask for---no matter the outcome, the honesty and dedication was confirmation we made the right choice.

Win.
Rad is experienced and knowledgable in family law. He is no nonsense, honest, and up front. While the other attorney was at a loss for words, Rad was well articulated in front of the judge. He has represented me multiple times and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Excellent lawyer would highly recommend
Been working with Radford Dimmick for about two years now on estate and divorce issues and I am completely satisfied with his efforts. Seems to have represented himself and the case well in court. Has won every motion set forth and is very social and great at explaining matters of law to me as a client. His billing is always concise and ledgible. As far as I am concerned he has done an excellent job representing me in my cases and is easy to get a hold of even on some weekends.

"I have known Mr. Dimmick for many years. I once practiced in an office down the hall, and had the privilege of being able to walk in and "pick his brain" almost anytime I needed. When I personally needed a Will I went to Rad. (... and I know you would think a lawyer would be able to draft his own Will. But I needed experience.) Rad was my first choice. When my grandfather passed and I needed probate help... same thing. I have always been able to depend on Rad for a answer to my legal question about Wills and Estate Planning... and then some. I am happy to endorse my friend Radford Dimmick as a "go to" lawyer on Wills, Probate & Estate Planning."
