Couldn't ask for a better lawyer seriously, very professional and represented us immediately no questions asked. He's not about to money like most lawyers, he actually cares. In very trying times no question ty has been there

Friendly, honest service
Ty had promised a complete dismissal for my case, and originally the court said they would dismiss only part of it, but after today, thanks to Ty, I still have a clean record. Ty was and is a friendly, down to earth man, he felt more like a friend acting as my lawyer than just my lawyer. I don’t think I could recommend him more.

The best lawyer yet!
We have hired Mr.Mahffay for a raid we was in. All over some stupid weed. Well we heard of Mr. Mahffay threw a family friend. We talked to Mr. Mahffay on the phone that day then we drove from findlay to Sylvania retained him and have had nothing but great service since we retained him. He even let us make payments. What other lawyer does that? Um No one! He's smart knows the law and our rights. Thank you Ty Mahaffy for the great job your doing for my husband. See you soon!

Great experience
Mr. Mahaffey and staff treated us like family. I was so worried and they always made me feel better. My husband lost his job and the staff there understood and handled everything honestly and professionally.

I would recommend Ty Mahaffey
He was there for me. He was very personable and kind. He was always very professional and did a great job handling my case. I would use him again.

Patricia Gaddy handled my divorce. It was a big mistake on my part! I should have done more research! She was not a match for the divorce attorney she was up against! Needless to say I didn’t prevail in this matter! But I sure paid the price regardless! Beware!!!

Save your money.....
Took our money but we handled the case on our own....the consultation money was to be put towards our retainer but it wasn't, so there is a few extra bucks in his pocket. Very late for 1st court date, a no show for the next one, the court mediator (who was an attorney) did more for us than Ty did. Does not have time to fit in any more clients but he keeps on adding them, keep your money in your pocket or find a different attorney if you are in family court!!!

Response from Ty Mahaffey August 18, 2017
Sherri... First I'd like to thank you for the review. We always want feedback in order to make our service better, even if it's critical of our work. If I could change one thing about my profession, it would be being able to be prompt at every hearing. if I am running late, I do let everyone know. Unfortunately, when dealing with very emotional issues, I sometimes have to take a few extra minutes to comfort a client or explain a situation so that they understand. Rest assured, I would never deliberately waste anyone's time. Often times attorneys are not present at mediation. It's an opportunity for parties to work on a situation themselves, that's why the mediator is present. My goal is complete availability to my clients. I answer their concerns evenings, weekends, and even holidays. Finally, I always try to perform more work than the compensation I receive. Only then can I feel I've done the best job I can at the fairest price. After this review, I assure you I will continue to evaluate our procedures and see how we can improve.

Does not care about clients!
I can never get a call back from this guy! I hired him in June and though his secretary was nice and helpful, even she could not reach him. Promises of calls and emails passed and my case was taken care of, but it was not the service I promised.
Response from Ty Mahaffey January 29, 2016
Thank you for your feedback. At all times our office strives to provide excellent service. It sounds as though your case was handled satisfactorily which is most important. Rest assured, we show all concern to the attorneys and staff and address measures to make all clients receive excellent service.

Not so hot
This guy seemed to not have things running smoothly in his office. I paid for a bankruptcy and it only got filed after calling tens of times over and over again. I didn't get responses to my questions and the secetary always seemed to give me an attitude. His assistant was late to my court date. This is an embarraseement.

Ty Mahaffey is the worst attorney in TOLEDO doesn't call clients back!
This guy is the worst. Super nice until he gets your money. Then he doesn't show up for court and don't ever expect him to call you back, he never will. Took 4 months to file my bankruptcy in the meantime I got granished.
