Recommended for your family law needs!
Facing a child support dispute, Elizabeth was able to guide me through the process and facilitate coming to a positive resolution for all parties involved. I highly recommend Elizabeth for any of your family law needs---she's responsive, pragmatic, compassionate and highly capable, all while representing your best interests.

Great job
My husband needed her assistance with a case about 11 years ago. It was handled in great time and helped my husband tremendously. Would definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone.

Most Professional and Knowledgeable Lawyer in Columbus
I hired Elizabeth in 2012 when I was getting divorced and most recently in a wage dispute with my former employer. She handled both cases professionally with sensitivity. Getting a divorce is emotionally difficult and having Elizabeth represent you and your children's best interests will put your mind at ease. She's a devoted mother and wife who sincerely cares about your situation. Several of my family and friends have hired her and they all had highly positive experiences. I continue to recommend her without reservation. You will not be treated as a number or paycheck.

The best attorney in Ohio!
Well, I could write this review and say that attorney Elizabeth Westfall was very professional and did a great job and leave it at that...but what she did for my family was WAY more than that, and this is such a personal subject for me...she honestly started as my lawyer and became my friend. Elizabeth is the best family lawyer in Columbus. This review is truly coming from my heart. Elizabeth became my attorney about five years ago. I had a very difficult case, one in which I had already had three attorneys previously who had not shown the level of interest nor were as knowledgeable as elizabeth . Elizabeth is compassionate, diligent, professional, knows the law, and handles your case as if it was her own. She is ALWAYS available to answer questions and even contacted me and worked on my case while she was on maternity leave. In all honesty,my family considers her a part of our family. I assure you, no one can find a better attorney ANYWHERE and I'm blessed to have her representing me. I could never truly express how thankful I am!

Awesome experience!
Being a father and fighting for custody of your son is no easy task but that didn't discourage Elizabeth from helping me. I have been using Elizabeth for the past 4 years and my case has not been easy but Elizabeth has been very professional and prompt the entire time. She has quickly responded to any of my questions or concerns and has been very honest on what outcomes may be. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to family law and has always explained every possibly outcome so I am prepared. I know I can trust her and that she will fight for what's best for my son. I would recommend Elizabeth to anyone who needed family court lawyer!

I highly recommend Elizabeth
Elizabeth took my case after I received a unfavorable outcome while represented by another attorney less than knowledgeable in family and child issues. She was clear, concise and was able to get my case back in front of the court and achieve and outcome that was fair given all the facts. I was more than pleased with her support staff and their overall concern for achieving what was in my best interest. Elizabeth was responsive to my calls and e-mails and was able to keep me focused on what needed to be accomplished. If you find yourself in need of a lawyer in a family matter Elizabeth is the one for you. You won't be disappointed.

She's the Best!
My family unexpectedly ended up in an urgent legal situation. Elizabeth was referred to us by another attorney, who is a friend of the family but doesn't practice domestic law. We needed an experienced attorney and FAST! Not only did Elizabeth return our call on a Sunday afternoon but she was prepared and ready to be in Court that following week requesting an Emergency Custody Hearing (which was granted). There is no doubt in our minds' that Elizabeth's fast responsiveness, desire to protect all children and knowledge of the law is what saved our family! If you are looking for an experienced attorney, that will fight for your & your family, you've found her!

Met my every need!
I was scared going thru a divorce as I am sure many people are. Elizabeth helped me thru the process. I was advised of all up coming hearings and what to expect promptly.she worked with me to get a great result for my kids and my future. I tell all my friends in need of legal assistance to visit Elizabeth.

Excellent and trustworthy attorney
Ms. Westfall has been my attorney for the past few years for a few different cases. She did an amazing job informing me of what was going on during my case and made me feel at ease. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, and knows what she is doing. She gets the job done!!!

Very professional, one of the very best attornys in Columbus
Elizabeth represented me in a violation hearing for felony probation in Delaware where my specific judge really hated me! He has dead set on sending me to prison for a very long time. Because my original charges stemmed from an opiate addiction, she use her expert negotiating skills to get me into treatment instead of years in prison. I was very scared and she kept in constant contact with me so I always knew what was going on and anyone who has been through the system more than once knows that is unheard of! My violation was right before Christmas and she was able to get me a bond so I could go home for the holidays and be with my family which meant the world to me. I have never heard for anyone getting a bond on a violation before mine, it is very difficult to get but she was able to. I've used other top notch attornys in the past and put up with how rude they are, they never call anyone back, Elizabeth always treated me with respect and always called back within a day so I Elizabeth to anyone who needs top representation.

Unresponsive and one sided. Very curt and unavailable. Does not respond promptly and sends mixed messages.
