Custody Battle
After having a consultation with Traci I decided to hire her. She was very attentive to my needs and wants related to my case. She saw me through every step of the process explaining what expectations I should have and where we were at in the process. She was very well prepared to give me all of my options whether it was planned or unplanned so we could be as ready as we could be for trial. I would recommend Traci to anyone who is in need of an attorney.

Great Experience
This is the second time hiring Tracy as my attorney. She is wonderful. She is organized, devoted, doesn't waste your time, and will fight for your needs. I used her as a divorce attorney and also in a child support/visitation case. I have also recommended several others to consult with Tracy before hiring someone else. Call her, she will not let you down!

Our family needed a lawyer to advise us with how to approach charges against my elderly father with his car accident at the age of 84. She stepped in immediately in the court room, upon our request, giving excellent counsel on how to plea for an immediate and very satisfactory outcome.

Traci represented me in my divorce.
Traci is phenomenal. My divorce was as complicated as they get. Traci did everything I asked of her and made the other side look foolish in my opinion each time we were in court. I never walked out of the court room feeling like we lost on any single issue. Traci was kind, caring, understanding and one of the hardest working people I know. She met me in the evening or on the weekend, even on Sundays, whatever it took. She knows my case details almost as good as I do and this is no typical divorce. I would highly recommend her to friends or family and if you want the best and who doesn't then call Traci. She was my third attorney involved in this case and my favorite by far. She treated me with respect and was always fair. Not only do I like her as an attorney, I have grown quite fond of her as a person. You are wasting your time if you look anywhere else, you will not find better.

Custody of adopted child
Traci was awesome and I would recommend her to anyone! My situation was very different than most but she was willing to jump right in and work her magic. My ex and I adopted our little girl from birth and due to being a same sex couple we were not married, so only my ex was the actual "adopted parent". The plan was then for me to get shared parenting. Our relationship fell apart and we split when our daughter was only a year and a half old. I didn't have my shared parenting rights yet so she was able to keep my daughter from me. Traci worked hard and was able to not only get me my day in the court room but kept me positive in the mean time! My ex contacted me befor court and decided to meet me at Traci's office to write up an agreement, giving me shared parenting. We walked into court on the same page and everything went smooth! I couldn't be more great full for the work Traci did and for now having my daughter back after 10 long months without her!

Traci handled my divorce case in 2015. Not only did she respond to my emails and telephone calls timely, but she worked diligently to aggressively handle my case. The outcome was amazing thanks to her hard work and dedication. I would recommend her to anyone that is seeking an attorney to work for them.

A preeminent lawyer in Butler County, Ohio
I would highly recommend Traci Michelle Combs-Valerio. I retained Traci for a complicated and emotinally difficult custody case. Traci made me feel comfortable and helped me to understand how the court proceedings would be handled. She was also responsive to my questions or concerns; she replied promptly to all my emails or text messages. Traci's expertise, knowledge and her abilities in court has earned her a reputation for success!
