New Albany Ohio Divorce Attorney

Why are you here?

You are reading this page because there is something big happening in your life. Maybe you live in the New Albany or Pataskala area. Whether it’s a divorce, a custody battle, or other family law issues, I know it’s not easy. You are trying to figure how you got to this place in your life. Growing up we’re all told we would meet ‘the one’ and have some kids, then grow old in our own happily-ever-after. Well that plan didn’t work out. Now it’s time for a new plan.

I have over 24 years of experience helping people in these situations. I can help you in any situation; spousal support of alimony issues, child support, paternity testing, stepparent adoptions. Just ask my client Jennifer.

Jennifer had already been divorced for seven months. She had sole custody. Since then her ex-husband had a large increase in income and she found additional child-rearing expenses had come up, so she wanted additional support from her husband. Of course, he didn’t want to do this the easy way so she filed for a modification of child support. To retaliate, he filed for shared custody (just so he didn’t have to pay the extra cost?) and full-blown custody battle lines were drawn. Lawyer number one could handle it all so along comes lawyer number two: me.

Back and forth, wait and wait. This case was seeing thru the smoke screen created by the other side. In the end we were able to get Jennifer a substantial increase in her the mother, maintained sole custody of the kids, and equal sharing of the tax exemptions. A solid win all the way around.

If you are going through a divorce or going thru issues after the divorce or dissolution, or a similar situation involving your kids, let me help you create a new plan for your new future. Here are just a few areas I can help you successfully.

Family Law

Whether you are looking for lawyer to defend or prosecute a divorce, dissolution, child support, or a custody battle and live in the New Albany, or Pataskala Ohio areas, I will be there to help make your new life plan better than your old life plan.


Not every love story is the same, nor is every divorce. There are no two cases that start or end exactly the same way. My knowledge and determination will help ensure that you get what is rightfully yours. I’ll be there every step of the way to make sure you end up with your (slightly altered) happily-ever-after.

Child Custody

As you read about my client Jennifer, whether it’s before or after the divorce, you have your children’s best interest at heart. I keep this in mind when figuring out the key details of your new life plan. We’ll work on a new type of relationship with your ex (or soon-to-be-ex) spouse and create a new type of parenting relationship with your kids.


Ending a marriage doesn’t have to be a nasty, lengthy court proceeding. A Dissolution is essentially a contract, created outside of the court, between two people who want to avoid the hassle of going back to court for a year or two and the expensive legal fees and costs that go with a divorce. Dissolutions can even be done completely outside of the court by a private judge-where you can keep some semblance of privacy and more important sanity. I have done hundreds over the years with all kinds of terms and agreements. I know I can help you. I will be there to ensure it works with your new life plan get you over the goal line to a new and better place. That’s my goal.

Let me be the one to help you create a new plan for a better life. I’ll be there every step of the way. Just ask Jennifer.

Jennifer from Pataskala, Ohio:

Jack communicated great. He did a way better job than my previous two attorneys (the other was the divorce attorney who left me with a big mess that Jack cleaned up). He educated me throughout the process; he prepared me well for court and negotiations by spending lots of time with me personally. He got me the result I wanted and I am thrilled.

Also, I paid him on his 3 payment plan and it was way better than the billable hour. I knew exactly the cost and when I had to pay and when it came to court I was not worried about how much this was going to cost or if I could afford to take the case to trial. And, I was not afraid to call him like my other attorneys who billed for every phone call. He was a 10 in my book and I would happily refer him to others. He was the only attorney who I truly felt was on my side and he definitely got me to a better place.
