About Amy

Learn Amy’s areas of practice.

As a Fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) and one of Super Lawyer’s Top Women Lawyers– honors not easily earned –Amy Weis is a highly respected Columbus divorce lawyer. She’s earned her reputation by sparing her clients the financial and emotional drain of contested family law litigation through amicable settlements whenever possible. If a case cannot be resolved through a settlement, Amy is known as a fierce litigator in the courtroom.

Her greatest professional satisfaction is knowing that she leaves her clients better than when she found them, often by empowering them with the knowledge of what to expect, what their entitlements are and by counseling them through the course of their domestic dispute – from start to conclusion. In addition to her expertise in family law and family divorce law, Amy has expanded her knowledge through the AAML to include high profile client contested divorce cases, valuing interests in private equity investments, intricacies of executive compensation and even pet custody.

A magna cum laude graduate of Capital University Law School, Weis was admitted to the Ohio Bar in 1996. Currently, she serves as Immediate past-president of the Ohio chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. Previously, she served as the organization’s president and vice president. In 2002, she was chair of the Domestic Relations Committee of the Franklin County Trial Lawyers Association.

Recognized by Ohio Super Lawyers® from 2009 thru present, Amy has been named one of the Top 25 Columbus Women Lawyers from 2010 to present, as well as regulary being listed as one of the Top 50 Women Lawyers in Ohio . She has also written on the law and lectured on its practice.

A Blessing
Amy is a blessing. She helped me through a contentious divorce - offering legal and emotional support. She followed the rule of law and fought hard to make sure the settlement was fair and equal. 3 years later I reached out to her about an issue and it was resolved within a week. I would highly recommend Amy. I am truly grateful.

Highly Recommend
I knew, immediately, when I met Amy Weiss and her staff, that I would be surrounded by people who would only want the best for me. Amy cared! She displayed the utmost professionalism, while at the same time, she helped me navigate a difficult situation with her sensitivity and concern. I felt comfortable knowing she would do everything she could to protect my interests. I am grateful to have had such a positive experience despite the circumstances.

Recommendation
Amy and her staff did an outstanding job helping me navigate the divorce process. She understood what my priorities were and fought to ensure those priorities were met. Based on her experience she was able to point out the pros and cons of different issues I would raise. In addition, I was very comfortable reaching out to Jamie as needed. If you are looking for an attorney to handle your divorce, I highly recommend Amy.

All Encompassing Service
Amy and her staff are clearly educated in every aspect of divorce. She was thinking ahead and always proactive which is vital in a long dispute. Her team was very organized/compassionate and kept all of my life history in order. She made suggestions when necessary for expert outside help such as forensic accounting. Most solid decision I made was to take Amy and her team on this battle.

I highly recommend Amy
I interviewed several attorneys, all men, except Amy. I hired her because I felt she was going to fight for me and be my strongest advocate. I had a very long and protracted divorce and throughout it all Amy was thoughtful, caring and was there when I needed her. She listened and never made me feel worse about my situation and was proactive in helping me walk through this process as hard as it was. She gave me great strategies and she never pushed me in a direction I was unsure of or not comfortable with. She consistently advised me to the best of her abilities and allowed me to choose my best options. In the end, I was very happy with the outcome and I have actively started to rebuild my life. I appreciate her effort and great work and I am happy with the job she did.

Was the aggressive lawyer that we needed.
We hired Amy 17 yrs ago for a custody case that was held in Knox County. She was compassionate about our daughter but was a bull dog when it came to dealing with the opposition. She acquired custody for us & was great to work with. I highly recommend Amy!

Someone on My Side
I live in another state and needed help with my divorce in Columbus. After reading reviews on a few sites, I chose Amy--not the most ideal procedure, but I sure lucked out. Not only Amy but her office support (special thanks to Jaime) were responsive, thoughtful, helpful. I felt I got excellent advice, and everything went smoothly. And the charges were clear and more than fair. I'd recommend Weis& O'Connor to anyone.
