I’m Hannah Botkin-Doty. I was born and raised here in Columbus, Ohio and graduated from Capital University Law School. I am a member of the Ohio Bar Association and Columbus Bar Association, as well as the Women Lawyers of Franklin County, and the Ohio Women's Bar Association.
My partner Abbie Obenour and I own The Law Firm of Doty and Obenour LLC., a small firm here in Columbus that focuses our practice on protecting your family and preparing you for the future.
We accept cases in the areas of Adoption, Estate Planning and Administration, Elder Law, LGBT Family Law, Small Business Law, Guardian Ad Litem and Assisted Reproductive Technology.
I have dedicated my life and career to being an advisor and advocate for all the families that walk through my office door and I pride myself on taking the time to truly listen to each of my clients concerns before starting on a course of action.
If you or someone you know needs advice on a family matter, wants to draw up a Will to protect their estate for their children, or is going through a chapter in their life where legal advice could help, have them call me anytime at (614) 678-8827. I would be happy to talk with them and learn more about how I can be of service.
