Outstanding Experience
It was a very difficult decision for me both emotionally and financially whether or not to pursue a divorce. The fear of not knowing what to expect in the process was put to rest when I met Chelsea. She is genuine and truly caring. She goes above and beyond of what one would want from their attorney. My divorce outcome was very positive. If you want an attorney who is looking out for your best interest then I would highly recommend Chelsea Long.

Best attorney in Columbus
Incredible attorney. Chelsea was such a breath of fresh air while going through my divorce. She was so precise and clear, never leaving me in the dark. I was very impressed by her responsiveness and how fast she would get things done. Chelsea is very knowledgable and would consistently put me at ease. She has a great personality to match. Hiring Chelsea was by far one of the best and smartest decisions I made going through the divorce process. Couldn't be happier.
