About Haley

Learn Haley’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Divorce and separation
    I handle dissolutions, uncontested and contested divorces.

  2. Juvenile law
    I serve as a Guardian ad Litem in custody and divorce cases as well as abuse, neglect and dependency cases.

  3. Adoption
    I finalize private placement adoptions and interstate adoptions, private and public agency adoptions, step-parent adoptions and adult adoptions. I represent clients from the beginning of the adoption process until finalization.

  4. Marriage and prenuptials
    I draft prenuptial agreements for parties wanting to protect vital, pre-marital assets.


I bring a passion for family law to McDaniel Law Group, and knew from my law school days that it was the only area of law in which I wanted to make a career. As a Columbus Family and Adoption Law attorney, I represent clients in a wide range of matters, including divorce, dissolution, child custody, grandparent visitation, prenuptial agreements, civil stalking/civil protection orders and all forms of adoption. I am also a certified Guardian ad Litem on the Franklin County Domestic, and Juvenile Abuse, Neglect, Dependency lists.

I received my Juris Doctor from Capital University Law School and my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from The Ohio State University. While in law school I received the Cali Award (recognizing the highest final grade in the class) for my academic achievement in Mediation. I was a Capital University Law School Moot Court Competitor during my second and third year of law school. I competed in Buffalo and Brooklyn, New York. I am now a Coach for Capital University Law School's Moot Court Program. 

I was born and raised in Ohio and I enjoy cycling, watching college sports, and spending time with my husband, Bryce and two dogs, River and Kava.

Great lawyer to work with!
I hired Haley to help me with a dissolution between myself and my estranged husband. She was amazing to work with. She was patient, understanding and always explained things as much as I needed. I would absolutely recommend her for anyone looking for help with a divorce.

Dedicated Professional
Haley was simply wonderful! I must preface that my dissolution was pretty amicable and my Ex only had a few issues. With that said, She took the time to explain everything with clear and concise instructions and guidance. Haley put me at ease instantly with the whole process pertaining to my dissolution proceedings with her knowledge and friendly demeanor. She kept me informed and was always prompt with responses. I never felt like I was just another number. The fees were very fair and billing transparent with detailed explanations of all actions accomplished. She even kept my Ex up to speed to avoid further issues through the process. Haley is everything you need to get the job done quickly and professionally. Truly grateful for quality professionals like Haley.!!!

Caring, Compassionate and Timely
Ms McDaniel went above and beyond for my divorce case; she worked tirelessly to represent me, my children, and my needs. With every twist of my case, Ms McDaniel was on top of the situation and kept me informed. I never once regretted hiring Ms McDaniel; I am so glad she was on my side. Thanks to her, my life is on a new path and I could not be happier!

We absolutely love Haley! She was amazing from the start with a consult she was very informative we definitely did not feel rushed she explained all of our options and ways of going through the process. We then hired her to help us with our case and let me tell you she was always there when we had questions or just wanted or needed to update her we could email her and would get a response back with in a day or two. She always made us feel comfortable to ask any question we had. Price is definitely fair you definitely pay for an awesome lawyer. We definitely would HIGHLY recommend her for your Custody/Adoption needs!

Civil Stalking Protection Order
Haley was amazing in making me feel prepared and supported for my case. She made sure I felt comfortable with the court process, especially since I was very unfamiliar with how these matters work. She took the time to meet with me multiple times prior to court to thoroughly explain the processes and on the day of court, was helpful in calming my nerves. She was incredible in the court room being organized, professional and detailed in my case. If it weren’t for Haley and her ability to represent me and my case, I am not confident that I would have had my protection order granted.

She was knowledgeable, intelligent, confident, and passionate about my case
Haley is the best and only family law attorney I have ever worked with. From our first meeting, she explained everything to me in terms I could easily understand and was always very responsive when I had questions outside of our meetings. If anyone is looking for a knowledgeable attorney go to Haley.
