Highly Recommend
I utilized Carol’s law services for my dissolution and it being my first and hopefully only dissolution she really made the process easy for me. She is very professional and knows what she is doing. She responded to any communication I had in a timely manner and I can’t recommend her enough.

Best Lawyer
Carol has been nothing but amazing. She helped me through a rough time and we came out on top. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have custody of my fiancé nephew; where he is safe and protected. She is very knowledgeable, knows her law and always responds in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Carol to any and everyone. Very thankful for her and the services that she provided.

Wonderful
She was so helpful and understanding. She asked many questions to understand my situation and made sure I understood every step. She was very concerned with making sure all the wording was correct so that there was no ambiguity and I was protected.

Best attorney ever!!!
Hiring Carol was the BEST decision I have made in my 10 year battle! After many years and several attorneys in several different states, she accomplished more in one and a half years than all of the others put together. Her compassion for her clients and desire to help me made this a much easier process. Her knowledge of the law, the system and her ability to communicate in a way that I understood made our partnership a success. She responded in a timely manner to texts, emails and phone calls and when she was going to be out of the office for an extended period of time, she let me know. She genuinely cares for her clients and their case. She went above and beyond for me and my family. She left no stone un-turned, very in depth in her research. I was extremely comfortable during court proceedings just knowing we had prepared well and the trust and respect I had for her abilities. She worked with us on a payment schedule that fit my needs. Her fees are very reasonable and the value of the outcome is priceless! I finally have custody of my son I live out of state so this was no small feat she moved a mountain for me. I simply cannot express my total gratitude for Carol. Thank you Carol your a rock star!!!!

BEST divorce attorney in the county!
I feel very honored and blessed to have met Carol and had hired her as my attorney through a very difficult divorce. She was empathetic, always took the time to listen and had superior communication skills. She would explain every step of the process in detail. No matter what curve ball was thrown our way, she ALWAYS had a back up plan. She genuinely cares about her clients and their best interest. I also never had a doubt or concern that she made any process longer just for money like a lot of other lawyers do. Words cannot express how thankful I am for how much Carol did for me and my son. I highly recommend her if anyone is going through a divorce and/or child custody. I promise, you will not be disappointed.

Sharp and proficient
I had a court date two weeks out and no representation. I contacted Carol and she took the case with little time to prepare. She helped me gauge a fair judgement of the outcome, and exceeded my expectations by far. Divorce with children is rarely easy, and Carol certainly made it less frustrating with her natural ability to analyze the circumstances. Will use for my next divorce ;)

Knows her stuff!
Carol was patient and explained each step in the process related to a dissolution and determining child support. Although the process was not enjoyable, Carol was a good balance of compassionate while being realistic about what I should expect. She was good about returning calls and emails also.

Trustworthy, Passionate, Caring, and an Very Informative Attorney
Ms. Carol Strench is an excellent attorney. She has incredible knowledge and experience in family law and child custody. When I first called her for a consultation, she was very thorough. However, I was hoping that I did not have to go through a divorce and it took me months to retain her because of my desire to still fight for my marriage. Once I retained Ms. Strench she had high personal standards and moral ethics, this was one of the reasons I hired her to represent my case. She earnestly cares about her clients and the child/children. Her professionalism and her communication is top notch. She fights for her clients and stands her ground. Ms. Strench exemplify what an attorney should be in the eyes of the public. I highly recommend her and truly thank her for all that she have done to make this transition a little more easier.

Excellent lawyer
Carol's expertise was a vital contributor to my case. She came up with very good Q&A for the case based on the information I provided. She uses her experience to "read" the majestrate and adjust her presentation of the case accordingly. Because of her, the respondent in the case and I were able to come to an agreement and not hold a full hearing.

Great Attourney!

Outstanding counsel
Carol represented me very well in helping me navigate a family crisis. She has a deep understanding of domestic law, and she did a fantastic job of representing me throughout my experience. The thing I respected most was her unabashed approach to making sure that I considered all sides of every decision. Her credibility in child welfare matters was of huge benefit. Above all, our interactions were pleasant as her positive demeanor was refreshing.

excellent help with my marriage dissolution
Carol was recommended to me by a family member. My husband and I went through a dissolution of our marriage and Carol was professional, relatively inexpensive, extremely helpful, and always answered my questions and emails in a timely manner. Even though the dissolution items were already agreed on between my husband and myself, Carol was on my side and made sure I understood what I was allowed by the state of Ohio. I highly recommend Carol and would use her services again.

Outstanding and informative attorney in the area of domestic law
Carol M. Strench was hired to assist in a child support case with my ex-husband. Carol was extremely knowledgeable, informative, responsive in our case. I would highly recommend Carol if you are needing an attorney with knowledge of the law, especially in the area of domestic cases, as mine was.

Very poor experience
I had a very poor experience with Carol. I selected Carol based on my familiarity with her in other professional dealings and, after consulting with her, my budget. Carol is very intelligent and confident. She knows the law and I felt as though she had a plan. However, this is where I feel our partnership went south. My case truly should've been an extremely easy case to win: documented drug test failures, documented showing up to care for the children under the influence, infidelity, 3 job terminations in 6 months, a separation agreement written by Ms. Strench and signed by my spouse, over 70 tardies and 10 unexcused absences for my oldest child, and more. Despite these facts, and no real negative information on my side: 1) my spouse disputed the separation agreement, which was then essentially dismissed from court as being unfair and one-sided 2) because my spouse disputed the agreement, we were given a guardian ad litem (ok'd by Ms. Strench) which I had to pay a significant cost for. 3) this guardian, who seemed to be much more familiar with the opposing attorney, promptly overlooked and dismissed the positive drug tests and the overwhelming tardiness 4) The other significant evidence was tabled "until we go to trial" despite me asking why we weren't going back and forth negotiating AT LEAST two times and yet... 5) due to believing that must just be how it had to play itself out, I've STILL not been in front of a judge. 6) and the times we were in court (not in front of a judge, simply finally doing a bit of negotiation) she was yelled at by the opposing attorney and was able to be bullied into a losing position. My spouse was able to concede nothing and pay no consequences for prior actions. I believe Carol is very intelligent and knows the law quite well. I do feel VERY strongly that Carol's lack of listening to my concerns and continuing with her predetermined agenda did my case a great disservice all while being outclassed and out maneuvered by a "higher-priced attorney".
