Great job. I got Jack's office from the internet. Backed me up 100%, could not have asked for a better attorney. Amazed. Did not leave me hanging. My needs came first. Wonderful attorney. Communication was great. He did explain everything that I did not understand. I would recommend Jack because he was very helpful. He trusted me and believed in me. Jack is someone that respected me and helped fight for me and calmed me down. He got me thru my tears and fears. Morrow County, Divorce case

Several years ago I was searching for an attorney for legal advice reguarding an upcoming adoption case. I have two children with my ex. She had recently got remarried and had two more children in addition to the two we had. Together, they decided that their new step father would adopt them. The problem with this concept was my children at the time were ages 12 and 9. Now back to the point. My adoption trial was located in Delaware County so I was looking for a family law attorney familiar with Delaware. I hit the jackpot with Jack and from the 1st day I met him Jack Carney-DeBord changed my life. Right away he made sure I was comfortable and understood the sobering truth of what could happen if I lost my case. I should also mention, I suffer from severe social anxiety too! That means a lot to someone who is not comfortable around strangers, trust me. I was a nervous wreck thinking of even the possibility of losing my children. Jack could tell right away how much my kids meant to me and decided to represent me. He got to work right away filing at the court and all his attorney magic he does. Several months later (15 to be exact), Jack was still there by my side after all that time we finally finished the trial. The judge had reviewed the case and made a decision. I got a phone call around 7pm from Jack asking us to meet him. Not even a hint at all why. Jack handed me an envelope and looked at me in the eye and shook my world with two little words, "we won". I know after 15 months Jack wanted to call and scream that at me but even in winning he showed such class to invite me to tell me in person and not on the phone. I will never forget that. Jack changed my life, my children's lives and all my family's. I could write you four pages why you should have Jack represent you and the impact he has had on my life. I think to sum it up though, it's very rare to find an attorney who genuinely CARES for his clients and their lives like Jack does.

I found Jack on the internet for my Divorce case. Jack went toe to toe with the other attorney and never backed down. He fought for what I wanted. My expectations were met. I give Jack a 4 out of 5. His rates were fair and my expectations met.

Jack was our attorney for a Custody case in Mt. Vernon. He was professional, very calm (and there was nothing calm about the case) but really showed he cared. Awesome communication any time we needed him, even on weekends and holidays. Jack always had our best interests in mind. I would recommend Jack as we won the case and our kids are in a better place. He stuck with us until the very end and was worth the cost. We rated Jack's Law Office on a 5 with 5 being the best.

Jack was my attorney for my Delaware Custody/Visitation case. Jack was professional, on time, and got me a great result. He was 100% effective because we got everything we sought out to get. I have recommended Jack and he helped me get to a better place.

My wife and I went to Jack so I could adopt her kids who I had raised since they were babies. We figured it should be an easy case but with the court system it is never that easy. It was a very stressful process but Jack helped ease our mind. He worked hard to make sure we were prepared and ready for any situation that may come up. This was important because we went into court thinking one thing but it went another way. Even though it didn't go how we thought Jack was prepared along with us and we got the adoption done and we couldn't be happier. Lawyers are expensive and it can be very stressful trying to figure out how much the process is going to cost or how long it will take. Jack took that stress away by giving us different options on payments and broke down different possibilities on how the process would go. I was very pleased with Jack and I would and do recommend him.

Jack was better than my last attorney. He moved it along and expedited it as much as he could. He did a good job, good result. Licking Co. divorce case.

I had Jack for my Post Decree case in Delaware. Best attorney experience I have had and very professional. Jack did an amazing job and documented everything. Hopefully I don't need to use Jack again, but would highly recommend him to everybody. I gave Jack a 10 out of 10 in the Document, Negotiation and Trial Preparation phases of the case.

Where to begin. We had known for a very long time that my husband was going to adopt our girls. The question was how, when and with what attorney. I had originally met with a different attorney a while back and just did not "click" with him. I googled attorneys names and Jacks office was the first I came across. I called on a night after work, so sometime after 5. To my surprise Jack himself answered the phone, he does have receptionist but their office was closed as well. To me that was important because had he not answer like I told him, I would have called the next. But, he answered, after hours and spent an easy 10 minutes with me on the phone. We set up an in person meeting. That meeting was 100$ but if we chose Jack it went forwards our case. I'm the kind of person that I have to "click" with someone to work with them. I don't know what it was about Jack (yes I do) but I knew he was the guy we needed and wanted. He was very honest and upfront with us. (Not to mention he gave me chocolate, it was near Valentine's Day) He ALWAYS told us "there will be bumps in the road but we will get over them." Boy was he right. We filed for the adoption and were all surprised by the contestment that came from their "donor" as we refer to him. We dealt with that. Jack did everything he needed to do to make sure we were lined up and ready for battle. Our initial court date was 9/9/15. The morning of court Jack had called me to tell me the judge called him and court had been continued. They did not get the transfer request in soon enough to transport the biological father (he is currently in prison) I took the phone call the best I could, I was very emotional. The one thing Jack kept saying was "like I said there will be bumps, we will get through them" Jack called me later that day to make sure me and my family were okay. We got another court date. Life went on for 6 weeks with Jack checking in to make sure we were still doing okay. We met before court on 10/14/15. Jack was pumped up! We were ready to go. We go into court, I was a nervous wreck. He managed to tell my husband and myself how nice we looked! We walked into the court room. We started the case and it took a turn that we were not expecting BUT let me tell you, Jack was ready to go, he switched folders and he nailed this case for us. He crossed every bridge every path every obstacle that could have came out of anything... He was prepared. I could not have been more proud of the attorney we had chosen for this. When everything was over, the judge granted the adoption, Jack was just like part of the family! He was so excited, to him this is more then a job, he loves and enjoys what he does and he makes it so obvious! My husband started crying during testimony and Jack slid the tissues over and put his hand on his back to make sure he was okay! We met up for dinner that night, he brought our girls Halloween baskets, earlier in the year he had surprised them with Easter baskets! He got our girls Halloween socks and before we were out of the parking lot, they had them on! We went to dinner and he was celebrating with us! We could never thank him enough for what he did for our family. He made us a legal family, gave our children a father that no one could take away! He called to check on us today, to see how the "new family" was. Even after his job is "done" he is still checking in! He is truly a wonderful guy! He told us from the beginning what we would be looking at financially. We paid what we had thought would be all, then the contestment came through. Jack gave us the option to "pay by the hour" or we could pay a flat fee. That flat fee included everything. Emails, phone calls, meetings, research, court.. It didn't matter what needed to be done, it was done. We did not have to worry about emailing or calling to much because we weren't "stuck" we paid an honest good amount for making our family "whole" and did not have to worry one bit about running out of money, or being told the day before court we needed to fork out x amount of Jack couldn't represent us. It was very nice to have that payment option! If you are looking for an attorney for anything, and want someone who is going o be great, loyal, caring, and honest I promise you, Jack will not let you down! He represented us, he won for us, he cared about us, he was always there for us! I'd bet on him for anything!! Thank you so much Jack for making my family whole, we will never in our entire life time forget you or what you had done for our family!

Jack did a great job representing me in my Dissolution in Delaware County. I would recommend Jack to anyone who needs legal assistance. Jack will work with your concerns in mind first but knows the legal system very well in all his experience. We were able to work with a private judge for very little cost in order to finalize our Dissolution. Finally, Jack is not only very professional but also personable and pleasant to work with.

Nathan D.

I would definitely recommend Jack. He did a fantastic job. Jack treated me with respect and as a human being rather than just a case. His communication was very good. He came highly recommended and I am glad I called Jack.

I had a Custody, child support and contempt case with Jack as my attorney in Delaware. Jack was my second attorney and I was not happy to say the least with the first. 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 through out 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.


Pataskala, Ohio

I hired Jack for my post decree case. I was charged with contempt and I was really concerned as my divorce was 5 years ago. We went thru the case and ended up going to trial. I was a nervous wreck. Amazingly we just got the decision after waiting forever and we won on just about everything. I was overwhelmingly pleased. I give Jack a 10 out of 10 because he was able to do all the things my previous attorneys did not and I had a very bad taste in my mouth about attorneys. Jack understood the system and dug in and understood what was important to me. I absolutely recommend Jack. My needs came first.

Jack was my dissolution attorney for my Fairfield County case. He was very thorough; walked me thru everything, was very responsive, and yes I would very much recommend him. His office was “all over my case.

Tara F. Pickerington

I hired Jack to learn about my options as a woman potentially desiring a divorce. Jack educated me in the area of Family Law. Even though we were talking about difficult topics, my experience with Jack’s law office was fantastic. Jack’s staff was wonderful, comforting and kind, and these qualities are so vital in support staff when a client is upset and in a state of grief. Jack himself was extremely compassionate, understanding, and intelligent: he listened to my every word and “got” me and my situation right from our first conversation. As we worked together further, he empowered me with information and, in fact, with a stronger sense of my own self-worth. He gave me sage advice, and I am very happy with his service. I highly recommend Jack’s services; they were well worth the money.

Jack handled my out-of state custody case. It was complicated. The impact on our life has been huge. You see, our son was living in Kentucky and we had to go back and forth for years dealing with it. The Grandparents had custody from the Mother because the Mother had drug issues. Jack got all the paperwork done and we kept our fingers crossed that everything could work right here in Delaware court system. It did. That was huge. Jack is a good lawyer, he does not mess around and very timely .We give Jack a 10. Good job.

I chose Jack as my divorce lawyer after extensively researching family law firms in the Newark / Granville area. It was my first experience ever needing a lawyer. While going through a divorce is never a good or pain-free experience, I felt that Jack was empowering, informative, and responsive every step of the journey. One of his biggest strengths is to put everything in plain language that I could understand. He was easy to approach when there were bumps in the road, and was excellent when it came to non-traditional thinking in tough situations. I would definitely recommend Jack and give him a “10” out of “10”-with 10 being the highest. The expectations and advice he gave me from the start were exactly what I got in the end.

Jack did my dissolution in Morrow County. He and his staff were great. They listened to me always. I felt comfortable from day one. This was a 10 out of 10 on the importance scale for me. I was tired of the negativity and can truly say I am happy. Jack made my life better.

Stephanie V.

with the services I received at Jack’s Law Office. From my first visit, to my final hearing, they were so attentive to my needs. Jack always took the time to make sure I understood the documents and the process of my dissolution. Never once did I feel like my questions weren’t answered. He even took the time to talk to me during rough patches of my dissolution and I felt like he was a friend listening to my problems. Everyone in the office were wonderful and I would recommend Jack’s Law Office to anyone looking for an informed, attentive and caring lawyer.

I give Jack a “10” on my dissolution in Morrow County. His service was always between good and great. I definitely recommend him to others.

Jack handled my custody case in Delaware. He did a great job. 10 out of 10. He fought for me to be the sole custodial parent-and won. He was always there for me and he helped tremendously because I was clueless. This means a lot to me-my kids are the world to me. The trial was very stressful, Jack always knew what to do and he explained everything. Jack’s Law Office changed my life and I would recommend Jack. In fact, I already have.
