Very happy customer
Arianna did an amazing job helping me through this difficult process. She is great at communicating and keeping up on all the details. She was prepared and familiar with all aspects of my case. Not only is she a terrific attorney, she also went out of her way to help me to stay comfortable and keep things in perspective for me.

I definitely would recommend!
I had an odd situation where I ended up with visitation/ custody issues with my ex who ended up being a sex offender. I went into court the first time and didn’t have an attorney and got taken advantage of. Arianna ended up being in the courtroom when this happened to me. I decided I needed an attorney so my boyfriend started looking into some and found Arianna online. I feel like it was meant to be for her to be in the courtroom to see what happened to me before we both even knew she would end up being my attorney. Arianna has done so much to get what I wanted accomplished in my case. She is hard working, compassionate and so easy to talk to. I would highly recommend Arianna to anyone! She’s amazing!!

Knowledgable, Focused, Efficient
I hired Arianna for a seemingly simple matter that turned into something more complex. She kept me informed every step of the way, was knowledgeable in her responses to my questions regarding the legal system, and provided anecdotal examples of similar case experiences.

An outstanding Attorney at Law
I sought Arianna's help and representation when my wife maneuvered to denied me custody of my son. I felt helpless, broken and extremely stressed. Arianna's passion for the law and her legal strategy restored my confidence and gave me hope. She ensured all my custodial rights were restored and won every single relief I asked from the court. I am now re-united with my son and able to sleep at night. Arianna is an outstanding attorney because she was very proactive in ensuring my case stayed on the calendar, even when personal circumstances dictated otherwise . l wish to thank her for her wonderful work and excellent representation. I highly recommend Arianna for all your legal challenges.

Trustworthy attorney
After the loss of my husbands sister we instantly went into protect mode and wanted to get custody of our nephews . After talking to Arianna I knew she would be the perfect attorney to help us . She was very upfront and honest and knew how things would happen throughout the process . Arianna eased my mind on several occasions when I would call her frantic and stressed and would answer every question I had . I'm thankful for all her hard work and determination to keep our boys safe and with us . She was not only working for myself and husband but also the children . Arianna will defiantly be the first person I call if her assistance is ever needed again .

Excellent job
I sought out Arianna Atkins based on her online reviews and I am so glad that I did. I knew that my case was going to be very difficult and I wanted a lawyer who is not only great, but who is truly in it to help children. Arianna is confident and caring. She won our case and everything that we asked for because she knows what she is doing; she understands the system, is very well educated, and highly persuasive. She wrote multiple motions and had to deal with an ever changing landscape of different defense lawyers and unusual circumstances. I highly recommend her for her work ethic, compassion, and most importantly, her results.

Excellent lawyer!
I'd definitely would recommend Arianna for someone if you are in the need to get divorced or having custody issues. She was easy to get a hold of when I had questions and didn't waste time with unnecessary communication which was nice. I also felt like Arianna didn't sugar coat stuff for me which I also respect. She fought for what I would deem as fair and tried to get the best outcome for me from a bad situation.

Divorce attourney
Arianna was an excellent choice for me because she walked me through the divorce process, explained options, and didnt promise anything she couldn't deliver. On top of that, I felt her rates are very reasonable for level of high quality service provided. I would recommend her to a friend.

Great Attorney, Really Cares About Her Clients
Arianna was great! She was professional, offered great suggestions, and helped me navigate custody and other post-divorce issues smoothly and quickly. She was able to help me achieve the goal of being named residential parent; this is significant because it is rare that a father can get residential custody after an uncontested divorce and after a gap of more than 5 years. Arianna was able to jump right in and make an immediate difference; she drafted communications, helped me to define my goals, and assisted me with communicating the reasons for custody changes. It was a very stressful time for me because I found myself suddenly and unexpectedly having limited visitation time with my children; Arianna's ability to make an immediate impact took a huge weight off my shoulders. She is exceptionally patient and skilled when it comes to interacting with me as a client, the court, and other attorneys. Whenever we met or had to go to court her guidance and advice helped make me more comfortable with the process; I always felt like I was working with a good friend. I would recommend Arianna to anyone who needs assistance with custody issues. She was wonderful to work with and I would not hesitate to hire her again if the need arises.

Best possible outcome.
Arianna helped me through my divorce and custody battle. She was always incredibly prompt in returning all my emails and phone calls. When we had court dates she was always on time. Divorce is an impossible situation but she helped me to get the best possible out come for both me and my child. I have referred her, and her practice to several of my friends, and I will continue to do so.

Trustworthy and informative attorney, Ms. Atkins
Ms. Atkins helped me gain custody of my niece in less than 3 months. She kept me well informed and responded quickly to my questions and requests. I found her to be very straightforward and honest. I would highly recommend her.

Arianna was a fantastic attorney. I had gone "attorney shopping" one day and didn't contact Arianna until several months later. She remembered me, my girlfriend and my entire case. I had heard so many horror stories about paternal rights and was determined not be another statistic. Arianna helped everything flow very smoothly. Although I didn't make the big splash in the legal system I had hoped for, Arianna ensured that all parties were happy and satisfied and that everything remained as fair as possible. She was very confident and determined in her work.

Great custody attorney
Arianna was an excellent attorney. She seemed to have the knowledge, expertise, and network to be able to do the job and get you the best results possible. She was very communicative, going above and beyond to get my questions and concerns addressed quickly. She seemed to have a good grasp on what was going on with my particular case and was able to advise on the whole process of what was happening and what to expect. She was able to tell me likely scenarios and timelines, not just things that I wanted to hear. Even during the periods of the case where nothing much was happening, she still was able to stay in contact and knew the status of what was happening to keep you informed. She knows that many times when you need an attorney for custody issues, that situation is the most important thing going on in your life right now and she treats it accordingly. She was very efficient with her time to keep your costs as low as possible. For anybody looking in Columbus or surrounding areas, I would strongly recommend you consider Arianna.
