Best in Columbus, honest and trustworthy.
Nick Yaeger is the best all around attorney I know and that is why I have recommended him multiple times to friends and family after working for myself in the legal system. Highly qualified and recommended.

Very caring individual
Mr. Yaeger helped me through a very difficult time in my life. I was getting divorced with children involved and was having trouble just thinking straight. He understood what I was going through and helped me stay focused and deal with the matters at hand. I feel he truly cared about my well being. Very professional. Highly recommended.

Great work!
On behalf of my husband and our family, I would like to express our sincere thanks to you for representing our family following the my husband's unlawful termination from his job. We especially appreciated all you did in working the legal details, keeping us informed, addressing the media, your responsiveness to questions throughout the process, and tenaciousness in negotiating the settlement. Thank you for your support of our family during this most challenging time in our lives, and all you did to right the most egregious wrong that was perpetrated on my husband and family.

Divorce/Parenting Agreement
Nick made all the difference. I had no idea what I was doing, and he answered every question I came up with. Facing a divorce and single parenthood can be a scary time for anyone. I am just glad that I had Nick on my side. Every time I started to get nervous and feel like I didn't have any options he would reassure me, and keep me on track. He is very personable, but also professional in court. I had consultations with multiple lawyers before choosing Nick to represent me, and I couldn't be happier with that decision.

Fantastic Lawyer for Domestic/Family/Employment Law
Nick is far and away the finest attorney with whom I have worked. He is truly caring, efficient, effective and acts with high integrity. His approach is to counsel clients to help determine what is the best overall outcome for the people involved. He put a plan in place and executed on it, never losing sight of the best intentions for my family. He has strong relationships in central Ohio and has a strong firm behind him. I highly recommend him for someone seeking a Domestic, Employment or Labor Lawyer. He helped me gain full custody and visitation of my children, saving me thousands in wasted child support and most importantly quality of life for my children and I. I turn to Nick for advice in Family and Business law.

Divorce - modification of parental rights
Mr. Yaeger has been extremely professional and diligent in finding and proving facts in regarding my case. One of the qualities I appreciate about him is the continued focus on dealing with and focusing on what is important to "winning" my case. He has taken time to understand my goals, the needs surrounding my circumstances, and maintained the utmost professionalism at all points. Thank you for covering all the basis.
