Attorney Staats recently represented me in a lengthy, complex divorce case. She is an extremely intelligent, warm, compassionate, hard-working attorney who really fights for her clients. Always timely and responsive, she patiently addressed all my questions and concerns throughout the entire process.

Situation: My son lives in Columbus, & his minor son lives in Akron. My son got notice his son was in a bad situation with his mother, & he had to fight the maternal grandmother for custody. To be honest, I came about Ms. Staats phone number desperately trying to find a lawyer for my son on just a few days’ notice. We weren't local, and Ms. Staats was the ONLY lawyer not only to answer the phone herself, but to take the time and talk over the situation with me, AND agreed to be in court in just 3 days’ notice! Wow! She really came to bat for my son. While the other lawyer resorted to "Jerry Springer" type tactics in the court room, Ms. Staats countered every low blow statement and ridiculous motions with a professional attitude coupled with a mother tiger's ferociousness in protecting my son & his rights, and his son's best interest. Even the mother to my grandson said "I don't know where you found that lawyer, but WOW! She wouldn't let mom's lawyer get away with anything. She's impressive!"
Elisa was responsive to emails and calls when her scheduled allowed, and always got back with us. It took 10 LONG months for my son to get custody, several hearings, pretrials and motions, but really, we got every pennies’ worth of professional representation from Ms. Staats and her advice to follow during that time. When it came down to trial, she brought with her TWO of the biggest organized binders of categorized evidence and information, questions for witnesses etc.. And was VERY prepared to go to trial. Our family, & our son was extremely impressed at the detail of her work. We thank heavens that Elisa Staats was that one lawyer who answered my desperate call for help that day. Now my son has his son living with him again & they both are so very very happy!! (And so are we!) We feel Ms. Staats was overly fair in her cost, & she was always upfront on any fees or potential future fees/costs that could happen. We also feel that she did NOT "nickle and dime us" on everything, we got more than our money's worth hiring her to represent our son and his son's best interest. Elisa Staats was our angel for my son's case. Our family cannot say enough awesome things on Elisa's behalf. We were blessed to find her.

Mrs. Staats was awesome to work with. She worked around my schedule which was great! She knew the law inside and me the best advice both professionally and personally. She out and was understanding of my circumstances and gave made a difficult time for me much easier by helping understand the Ohio Laws on divorce. I would strongly encourage anyone to hire her for representation and she wouldn't let you down!

I endorse this lawyer. Elisa is an attorney well-versed in the law, and is extremely capable of obtaining successful outcomes for her clients. Her body of work as well as her responses to assist parties in public forums such as AVVO show a devotion to her clients as well as to the legal profession. If you seek a successful outcome in the greater Akron area, I strongly suggest that you call Elisa-- she knows how to win.
