I first met Attorney Nigh (Joe) in 2008. At the time, I was in the process of interviewing several attorneys in the Columbus / North Central Ohio area for representation in a very heated and complex child custody matter. Needless to say, during the course of my search for the right lawyer, I interviewed almost a dozen attorneys.
As I presented my case materials and facts to each of them during initial consultations, most if not all were more concerned with how much of a deposit I would be able to place with them rather than exploring the very serious allegations of safety associated with my son's living arrangements at the time. Those who did express interest in my case, only did a cursory review of the evidence and were quick to dash my hopes of getting custody as a "father" in Ohio.
Joe not only took the time to actually sit down with me for almost an hour, but was the ONLY attorney who actually took the time to actually analyze the initial facts that I provided him.....and he was honest enough to tell me that my chances of getting full residential custody would be a challenge.
Throughout the next 3 years of on and off litigation, Joe continued to review copious amounts of evidence with meticulous eyes. Not only was he available to speak to me over the phone at a moment's notice, but the staff at his law firm were also there to support.
Joe's sense of professionalism extended to both me and my family as we faced a very difficult moment in our lives. Joe would have the compassion to support me, but also maintain a strong sense of unbiased advocacy for my son's best interests.
In the end, Joe's dedication to helping the court and the GAL to see the true facts and issues in my son's case resulted in me getting FULL RESIDENTIAL CUSTODY of my son.
Joe is someone who has made an indelible mark on my son's like as well as mine. I will never forget the lengths that he and his staff have gone through over the last few years.
To be honest, this was a very emotionally and monetarily trying situation as my son's custody case lasted for several years, however, the outcome in the end was well worth it. Joe's perseverance proves what a difference a dedicated attorney can make.
I would highly recommend Joe to anyone, father or mother, who has need for a strong, knowledgeable, and dedicated family attorney.

Joe Nigh was recommended to me by a friend, and I could not be happier that I followed her advice. Joe and the entire staff at Tyack, Blackmore, Liston & Nigh were professional, attentive, knowledgable, personable, and kind. They made the legal process almost pleasant (if that's really possible!) I highly recommend Joe!!
