Practice area

Ben Nyhan practiced exclusively in family law for six years prior to founding QDRO Partners.  Ben's practice was primarily limited to Central Ohio, but it was not uncommon to find him in courtrooms all over Ohio, from Cuyahoga County to Hamilton County.  While mostly handling divorce matters, he also represented clients in juvenile custody and child support cases, adoptions, and guardianship proceedings.

Ben's interest and experience in high-asset, complex divorce cases - combined with the demand for a local QDRO drafting service centered on attention to detail - led him to create QDRO Partners.  QDRO Partners is unique in that there are very few QDRO entities run by an attorney whose prior practice was wholly centered on domestic relations law.  Ben's practical experience as a divorce attorney and his understanding of the inner workings of settlement negotations, time constraints, and the court system allows him to provide his customers with a higher level of service.  QDRO Partners strives to meet the needs of local practitioners with sophisticated, timely, and convenient service.

In order to ensure QDRO Partners is at the forefront of all things QDRO, Ben maintains regular contact with other professionals who deal with QDRO-related issues, including counsel for public pension funds, employee benefits attorneys, actuaries, and accountants. 

Ben was born and raised in Bexley, Ohio.  Prior to graduating law school and entering private practice in 2010, Ben lived and worked in Washington, D.C., working in legislative affairs and on Capitol Hill.

Organized and Professional
Since Ben made the transition to QDRO Partners, I couldn't be more satisfied with the level of service, organization, and professionalism. He understands the specialized nature of QDROs, DOPOs, and DROs, and delivers the product in a highly professional and organized nature. His turn-around time is prompt, as well.

Great Lawyer
Ben was awesome! He was very responsive and made me feel like I was his only client even though I know that wasn't the case. He was very professional and knowledgeable. Ben made my dreams come true with assisting in the adoption of my 2 boys. He handled the situation in an expedient manner and compassionate heart. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone seeking legal help.

Great Attorney!!!
Ben did a wonderful job representing my husband and myself with our grandparent custody case. He was always very responsive to phone calls/ e-mails and worked efficiently to ensure our costs were kept low. I can't thank Ben enough for treating our case as a priority which resulted in it being resolved quickly. I highly recommend him if you are seeking a caring attorney that works with a sense of integrity!
