Honest, supportive, integrity
April is my attorney, and we recently closed a filing process in my divorce (originally finalized in 2013; reopened for modifications). She is an outlier in a sea of “yeah I can get that for you…now give me your retainer fee” attorneys. She doesn’t make flippant promises about results, which is so refreshing. My daughter’s best interests were, and continue to be, at the top of April’s concern. She cares about her clients, doesn’t put up with underhanded antics, and fights for the RIGHT thing. I can’t emphasize that enough. Even if it’s not exactly what I had in mind, April put so much in proper perspective for me, and supported me mentally as I navigated different emotions. Couldn’t recommend her more, and would choose her every time.

Divorce case
This was the first time I’ve ever needed a lawyer and April made the process extremely easy, she helped answer all my questions and was there with me through the entire process, she helped me obtain more than I even imagined out of this divorce, it was honestly like working with a good friend. I would highly recommend her in your case! She was thoughtful, understanding and patient and got the job done! One of the smartest people I’ve ever met and super hard working, we had our case done in no time and I couldn’t have been happier! Thank you April for everything, I am so incredibly happy with this entire process!

Best Attorney!!
April was my lawyer for a PO case and a child custody case. She fought for my safety and my son's rights. She was absolutely amazing with how she handled the courts. I let her do her job because I trusted her. I would recommend her to anyone I know and would say hire her!

Child Custody case
April was helpful from the beginning in answering our questions and make sure she clearly understood our family’s situation. Once taking the case, she always worked in the best interest of the child helping us win custody.

Divorce/Restraining Order Case
April handled both my restraining order case and separately my divorce case. To say April had to have patience with me is an understatement. April had to calm me down several times and I appreciated it. April knew what she was doing for my cases and actually helped the other attorneys who didnt. She kept in contact with me even when I bet she didn't want to. April is incredibly knowledgeable and knows the system like the back of her hand. I truly am grateful for what April was able to do for me. I am now able to move on with my life from some of the hardest things I've had to deal with. Highly recommend April.

Outside box thinker
We were refered to April spur of the moment when we decided to fight for custody of one of our foster kids. April jumped right in on the case, gathered information and ensured things got filed. She was very straight forward with us. She was the one who gave us the idea for visitation. If we couldn't get custody we could get visitation and be party to any future happenings with the child. Able to still be a part of his life and keep him safe. She truly cared about our case. Her love for children shows in her knowledge of children services. We will definatly come to her with any future cases. We can not thank her enough for all she did.

Best Attorney I know!!
My daughter had a speeding ticket and a wreck within 1 month apart at juvenile court. I got ahold of April she went above and beyond for my child and also worked it out that she wouldn’t have to miss school because she has never missed a day of school! April knows her job and excels at it that’s why that poor girl is always busy! April keep up the great work you rock!!

One of the best family lawyers around
I highly recommend you get April Moore as your attorney for family law issues. My case kept April and working together for 4 years with my divorce and custody battle! Everything that she told me would happen did happen. Finally after everything I did end up winning custody of my 3 boys. Ohio, and Greene County in particular, is a very tough place for a father to win custody and child support, but she made it happen. She is in high demand for a reason!

Custody Case
April was a fantastic attorney to work with. My case was handled professionally and thoroughly. As a result, the outcome of my case was better than expected. I highly recommend hiring April for any family law case matters you may need.

Custody
April just brought a lengthy custody battle to a close. She was prompt, professional, accessible, and knowledgeable. I appreciated her “shoot me straight” way of doing business without empty promises and fluff. What she said is what she meant and what she did. She was honest, not a quality that I would find in any attorney. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND APRIL MOORE.

Best Lawyer Hands Down
Mrs. Moore is very knowledgeable in her field and exercises snap attorney consultations which helped my rare case. I was in an uphill battle for custody of my child and was able to win. It is very difficult for a men to gain custodial and residential custody of their child out of marriage but she made it happen.

Would highly recommend!
April was AMAZING to say the least. I am not an easy client as I am one to overthink everything and constantly worry, and she was so patient and kind to me. She was straight forward, telling me what to expect every step of the way. April definitely was able to help me make sure my kids were put first in the courtroom, over any power plays or manipulation that were attempted by the other party. She was able to help me with the GAL, with communication with the other party's lawyer, and was very thorough. She was assertive and professional when working with the other lawyer and purely fantastic in the courtroom helping my ex show his true colors. She was very quick to answer questions in emergencies, and even so when not an emergency. I would HIGHLY recommend her!! Thank you again April!

Visitation opposition and court of appeals representation
April was alway quick to respond and knowledgeable. We only met 1 time all contact was via email and text which is fine with us as she never left us doubting. The fact we came out on top in both issues was a testament to her expert advice and counsel

Adoption
April was and is Amazing!!! God sent her to us when we needed her most. We were foster parents and heading toward adoption with our foster son. However, the county director tried to move our son to another family (she has a relationship with that family) for them to adopt him. April stepped up to the task and fought for us the entire way! We were matched with our foster son and just adopted him! Had it not been for April, the director would have overturned the decision and we would have lost our son whom we had had since he left the NICU. She was always there when we needed her. I could count on her at anytime and when I was having anxiety over the case she was there to help me off the ledge ; ) She is professional, caring, and truly does what is in the best interest of the children! I highly recommend her!!! If she doesn’t know the way, she will find it!!

April is a Godsend!
I had a little girl left with me (but not biologically mine) from a previous marriage for 6 years when all of the sudden her biological mom came out of the woodwork to see her daughter. I got April’s name from a person my current husband works with and from the first time we met, April assured me that everything was going to be okay. I had talked to at least 8 other attorneys that said that I should give up hope because the biological mother was going to win or they weren’t confident that they could win the case. But not April. April was ready. She was kind but she spoke the truth-every time. I appreciate that. Especially in my times of panic at all the court hearings we had to go to and all the drama and emotions that court brings for me. April kept in constant contact with me anytime something happened with the case and she always made sure that she and I were on the same page. Her personality is perfect for her job. She never loses her cool. No matter what. April represented me well and kept the best interest of the child as the high priority in this case. I have ZERO complaints about her. God definitely put her on my path for a reason. We ended up in agreement between the biological parents and my husband and I and this little girl gets to stay with the family that has raised her and the best part is that all of her parents now get along for her! April will be the first and only person I call if myself or my family needs an attorney in the future! THANK YOU APRIL!! You are nothing short of amazing!!!
