The one and Only
There are hundreds of attorneys in Columbus Ohio who are highly experienced in the Domestic court and family litigation, most of them are good attorneys, there are absolute few who are trustworthy and highly professional in their practice. But when you need to protect yourself and your kids while Divorcing someone with Borderline or Narcissistic personality disorder and Supported by highly educated, very wealthy and very dysfunctional family who are able to hire several attorneys, do anything in their power to hurt you and your kids over several years of legal litigation, there is absolutely one Attorney who can stand by your side in very professional and ethical way focused on his duty to provide the best legal advice during all the traumatic circumstances you will go through. Mr. Bracco was the one and the only who went above and beyond all expectations in understanding my case, predicting what my ex-spouse may do or say in court. His being very well prepared and very professional in the court room, helps the court to keep focusing on the most important things while my EX and the family along with their attorneys are doing their best to extend the litigation and distract the court with any possible way. Mr. Bracco legal and psychological guide to safely navigating a high-conflict divorce from my unpredictable spouse gave me strength over the years to take control of my case with assertiveness and strategic thinking. Words are not enough to thank Mr. Bracco and his team for all their hard work and support on my case and highly recommend them to lead through high conflict divorce cases.

Very professional
Bob is a very good person who understands clients needs. I was new in town and needed help. He stepped in and delivered very professionally and helped me immensely. He is also humble and has empathy

Best out there
I contacted Robert Bracco & his group in early Jan 2010. Robert Bracco and his associates from day one treated me with respect along with a very caring heart. This group understood that my case was going to be an uphill battled from the time we filed the case in Franklin County but stood by me until my case was settled. Robert Bracco would call me any time there was a change in my case. Even when I thought it was a lost cause Robert & Associates continued to give me the legal support that I required. I am a person with a disability and they always took their place beside me and defended my disability. I would recomend them highly. Robert Bracco & Assoicates are considered trustworthy, dedicated, Knowledgable and will take your legal matters seriously. This group of attorney's I beleive are the best out there.

Business Litigation- NY
I just finished up a matter (successfully) with Bob and his firm handled. It was a messy matter and without Bob's perseverance, professionalism , knowledge and "street smarts", this could have had completely different results.

Dependable & Trustworthy Attorney
Mr. Bracco represented me on a highly contentious 5 year divorce battle (and subsequent appeal). He kept me informed on a timely basis and was responsive to my many questions and concerns. He and his staff were well prepared and very professional in the court room. I am very pleased with the results he obtained. I highly recommend Mr. Bracco, especially if you are going through a difficult divorce with a vindictive ex-husband.

Worst Lawyer Ever
Divorce case. The case went right up to trial. He forgot a lot of stuff and had several repeated meetings to discuss the same things costing a lot of wasted money. His trial preparation was extremely poor specially his time in the court. It was all last minute in the morning and all on paper. He did not share the discovery and a lot of information with me. He kept on reducing expectations as the case went on. His lack of preparation worked against me and helped the other side. Even during the negotiations he left several things open ended leading to loosing outcomes. Focused on money and showed no empathy even after loosing the case. Always came late to meetings scheduled in his office and left on the stoke on the hour. Gave a lot of incorrect recommendations and then later denied giving them. I would never recommend this lawyer to anyone especially for divorce cases which involve a child.

Response from Robert Bracco March 22, 2018
This is a fake review/ clearly wriiten by a disgruntled person who either wanted to litigate to punish their spouse or who was not happy that my representation of their spouse was successful. I suggest they identify themselves
