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!

Atty Staats has been such a blessing for us. We are current clients in the middle of a custody dispute that started over a year ago. It's been a long emotional process and Elisa has been there every step of the way. Elisa has gone above and beyond, and we feel confident having her in our corner. We highly recommend Elisa!

Ms. Staats did a great job for me. She represented me against the State of Ohio. Without Ms. Staats they would have won a judgement. She successfully negotiated a substantial reduction in the amount of money I had to pay. She kept me informed, told me what I could expect and responded to all my concerns promptly. I live on the west coast and she went out of her way to respond to my every phone call and e mail. I'm sure my results may not be typical, but having her on my side was great. I feel my case was handled with the upmost professionalism and again, I could not thank her enough for reducing the amount I owed by thousands of dollars.

I am so glad I chose Ms. Staats as my lawyer. She has went above & beyond what was expected of her & has worked her butt off for me and my case. Our case is a very complex case, stretching across states, that has been going on for 19 months. Lawyer Staats was always professional and prepared to tackle any obstacle that was thrown our way. She always kept me informed on what was going on & the ending results have proved to better than expected. Not only did we win our case, but we are very happy with the outcome. I would definitely recommend her if you need help with a child custody case.

My brother passed away unexpectedly, without a will, and his finances were a mess. Atty. Staats guided me through the process of probate court, etc. She is thorough, organized, knowledgeable and very professional. Atty. Staats is interested in the best outcome for her clients.
I have recommended Atty. Staats to friends and family going through a divorce or business situation. They have been pleased with my recommendations.

Atty Staats was wonderful to work with during my disillusionment. She kept me up to date on everything that needed to be decided and where things stood. She was always available on the phone, in person, via email, and text. She understood the pain of the process and gave great personal advice for helping myself and my children during a very difficult time.

Miss Gamache represented me in a very complex criminal case involving 7 charges. Although criminal law was not her expertise Miss Gamache was able to resolve my case beyond my expectations. Miss Gamache was very diligent in her research and keeping in contact with the prosecutors and me. Miss Gamache was certainly not intimidated by any of the prosecutors scare tactics and did not let them bully me in to any situation I didnt feel comfortable in. Miss Gamache was willing to go the extra mile and was not interested in just settleing to be done and get her money.
