I came to Andrew after reading one of his blogs online regarding an international move-away case. I found myself in a similar situation and felt my divorce attorney would not be suitable to advise me on an impending child custody case with an international element.
Andrew was extremely responsive, sensitive and helpful in guiding me with my case. He was very knowledgable about this area of law, specifically the international complications that we could face.
I would love to hire him when the time is right.

I was referred to Andrew Zashin by several sources, came in to see him regarding a potential child custody case and/or a modification of an existing custody order. It may have turned into relocation case and had the potential of involving the laws of another country.
I found Mr. Zashin to be sensitive, knowledgeable and experienced about this area of law. Most importantly I had consulted and retained other Ohio lawyers, whom treated me with disrespect, and gave me wrongful information, which impacted my situation, significantly.
Andrew was responsive, especially in comparison to other lawyers I have worked with in the past. He took his time, I never felt rushed or spoken 'down to' he was honest as to my circumstances, however this honesty came with information, and vast knowledge he shared, that in 7 years no other Ohio lawyer has ever seem to know or understand the laws.
Andrew, answered my questions and I feel comfortable recommending he and his team to any parent who needs help with modifying a shared parenting plan or changing a child custody order. Andrew was also experienced with the international aspects of custody cases.
Most important to me, I left my first meeting, feeling empowered, that I had someone advocating and on 'my team'.
Meeting Andrew was an epoch of change in my custody and forward plans for my future and impact on my children's lives.
Andrew did not just regurgitate the 'law' he took an actual interest in the best approach for my family, children's welfare and short and long term goals. This is the integrity that one can hope for and too seldom find in a lawyer.
Best legal decision I ever made contact Andrew Zashin. I wish I had done so much sooner.

1.) I came to Andrew after I was divorced to work on child support matters. The original deal, drafted by supposedly top attorneys, was somewhat unclear about certain matters which my ex-wife and her new lawyer(s) tried to turn into a cash grab.
2.) I had a complex case because I was an executive at a publicly held company and I started to earn more money after the divorce.
3.) My ex-wife's various lawyers did not understand my company's SEC filings and public financial statements and insisted on making outlandish claims to the court which confused and needlessly delayed matters.
4.) Andrew was able to cut through the nonsense and persuade the court that our reading of the documents and the divorce agreement was correct.
6.) I ended up getting a good deal.
7.) I was much more impressed with Andrew and his staff than any of the other lawyers who had been involved with my case, on either side.
8.) I would refer Andrew to anyone who has a complicated and high net worth situation. Several other "top" lawyers had been involved in my case but Andrew was head and shoulders better than they were.

Andrew's skill and legal acumen is of the highest caliber. In my opinion he is the best divorce attorney in Ohio, and one of the best in the country. He is brilliant. Andrew is a weapon for which those clients fortunate enough to hire him first should be thankful. His unique ability to quickly identify issues in a case, rapidly and thoughtfully hone those issues into an effective strategy for the courtroom, and deliver them in an effective manner under the most difficult of situations, is rare. I have personally been fortunate to have Andrew as a mentor, and I have learned a great deal from him which I utilize in my own practice. I truly endorse this lawyer.
