Relentless
I found Frank and his team during one of the most difficult and emotional times of my life. They were able to be honest, supportive, directive, encouraging, compassionate and balanced it all with professionalism that kept them on top my case at all times. I know that this team is in high demand and may be very busy behind the scenes with a wide variety of cases but I always felt like I was their most important client no matter my issue or concern. I would say that Frank and his team are relentless and believe in fighting for what is right and what is deserved. Schiavone Law firm is an impeccably talented, knowledgeable and committed organization that I would 10/10 recommended.

Outstanding Attorney
I was in a very difficult personal situation. Other lawyers said they could not help me and that I would never win my case. Frank was different than every other attorney. He was empathetic, responsive, and very aggressive to get me the outcome I wanted and deserved. I’m very thankful to Frank for protecting my rights during a very difficult time. Frank was worth every penny. He was very responsive no matter the time of day or night.

Amazing Attorney
Frank has helped me with so many cases. He and his staff have been nothing short of amazing. I have had some extremely tough custody cases. Frank has been there every step of the way. I am not always easy to deal with when I get stressed. Frank had the ability to keep me calm and reassured that everything would be ok. He fought for me and my kids like no other. He always answered my questions, and helped me through some very difficult situations. I came out on top for/with my kids. If you need anything, call Frank and his staff. They are extremely knowledgable, and straight forward with everything.

TRUSTED LAWYER!!!!!!!!
For the last 2 years I have stressed, worried, and remained concerned over trying to get custody of my son. Frank had assured me from the beginning that you will have your son back. Even though I stressed the whole time I not once felt like Frank’s abilities to get my son back for me was going to change. He made this whole case a smooth ride even whenever the road was super bumpy. I’m not sure how many times I called him for reassurance that it was going to be ok but that man answered his phone every time or called me back the very moment he got a chance to let me know that there was no need to worry. Frank is the MAN for the job if you need a lawyer to get something done right!!!!! I like the way Frank handles himself as a professional Lawyer, he’s CONFIDENT AND MOST OF ALL TO BACK THAT CONFIDENCE UP IT IS BACKED UP WITH HUMILITY!!!!!!!! I now have custody of my son because of Frank Shiavone and I am so thankful God put this man in my life to make that happen. You are a awesome guy Frank thank you so much!!!!! May God bless you and meet all your needs!!!!

Excellent!
Frank Schiavone IV has been nothing short of an amazing attorney. The due diligence and professionalism of Mr. Schiavone and the staff are unmatched! Their offices are extremely welcoming and well laid out to provide the personal touch you would expect. My wife and I have been battling an ongoing custody case for 10 years. Mr. Schiavone was able to get full custody and make our family complete all while keeping the children’s best interests in mind. We highly recommend Mr. Schiavone and his staff to anyone who is looking for an excellent attorney that will go above and beyond to make sure your case goes at it should.

BEST ATTORNEY EVER
I have used several different attorneys for various child custody reasons in Butler County. Frank is the best one ever! He has helped me with kids, and my divorce. I called him in a time of desperation, and he was so helpful. He was kind, thoughtful, and caring. He actually listened to my needs and what I wanted. He is on my side! I recommend him to everyone that needs a great attorney!

Extremely Grateful
Mr. Shiavone took over an extremely difficult case for our son. It was a long on-going event with many technical difficulties. Not only did he embrace our son but our whole family as well. We were well-informed throughout; his whole team is courteous and competent. We are well-satisfied with the outcome and feel that is due to his expertise and diligence. Mr. Shiavone's firm went above and beyond in helping all of us through a difficult time and we are extremely grateful.

Get Frank on your team
You want frank and his team on your side. His court room experience is unmatched and makes other attorneys just look silly in court. Inside and Outside of the court room he keeps you informed and addressed all my questions and concerns. he made me feel like he really has heart in my case. He always had my best interest in mind. You’d be absolutely foolish not to have frank and his team stand by your side.

Best lawyers I ever met
I hired the schavone team for my divorce. My wife of 40 years left me .after 6 years of separation when I filed .for a year frank and his team walked me through a heart wrenching process that I feel is a fair split of moneys and assets. If u ever think of divorce or any other problem get the schavone team before your aponent. U don’t want to go against him in Court. He is impressive

Best lawyer around Hamilton/Cincinnati
Frank has handled many cases for me and has even gotten some completely thrown out, I came to him with 2 felony charges facing a prison term and he had them dropped to a misdemeanor and I ended up with a much lesser sentence than originally faced. He is an amazing attorney he does wonders for me and my entire family in any kind of case we have he gets in there and gets the job done. Ive recommended Frank to many of my friends facing legal troubles and he handles their cases with care and precision as always, I'll never use another attorney unless they come from Schiavone Law Office.

Great Person and Great Lawyer
Frank did a wonderful job handling my case. He represented me in a messy divorce case in which I was fighting for shared custody of my young daughter. Throughout the whole process he was very knowledgeable and showed alot of empathy toward me and my situation. He was always available to me by phone or text if I had questions/issues, and he did a great job of making me feel like I was an important client. He charged me a one-time up front for his services that covered the entirety of the case... This eased my mind because I was never worried about actions being taken just to charge me more money. Overall I was extremely impressed by Frank's professionalism, demeanor, how he handled my case, and how he interacted with me during this 14-month long custody battle. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in the same situation as me. He will care for you and fight for you so that you can get fair treatment during a legal issue. If I'm ever in another legal bind, I will definitely call Frank again to represent me.

Highly Recommended
Mr. Schiavone helped me through a difficult situation with his professionalism and attention to detail. I was involved in a traffic incident in 2012 and after contacting the firm, Mr. Schiavone took over my case. After the initial meeting I felt 100% better about my situation and he kept me fully up to date as we went through the entire process. We had to jump through a lot of hoops but he was with me the entire time and I had the utmost confidence in his abilities. I have since recommended him to anyone who is in a similar situation.

Easy to work with
I worked with Frank Schiavone as an expert witness in a case where children in a daycare were being force fed Medication to make them sleep throughout the day. It was heart wrenching case, but I can say that it was very nice to work with someone so detail oriented and willing to go the extra mile to get Justice for his client.

Worth every penny
settled an ongoing five year case for me in months. Very knowledgable, compassionate and no bull sh*t kind of guy. Has great respect from other attorneys which is key.

Very good lawyer
Frank and his father have been my attorney for many years, he's handled my criminal cases and my civil/insurance cases, not once has he disappointed me, good lawyer, good man.
Posted by anonymous | September 13, 2014
Wasted over a year of my time.
HE was positive the opposing side didn't have a case and requested a balloon payment of $3500. After being paid he did not represent myself or my children in their best interest. In fact he gave bad advise, didn't file charges and when he finally filed an order it was the wrong one which even the Judge who declined his request pointed out. I will be contacting the bar once I prove he mishandled my case in the court its being handled in.
