  • Divorce: Divorce is a complicated process. We want to make sure that you are in the best position to move forward with your life. Our Powell, OH divorce lawyers have experience handling the full range of marital separations—from uncontested divorce settlements to high-conflict divorce litigation. Call us today to set up a confidential review of your divorce case. 
  • Property Distribution: Under Ohio Revised Code § 3105.171, marital property is divided in an equitable manner. Each spouse is entitled to their “fair share” of the jointly held assets. If you are working towards a property division settlement or you are locked in a dispute, our Powell divorce lawyers can help.  
  • Spousal Support: During and after a divorce, the financially disadvantaged partner may be entitled to spousal support/alimony. Ohio has complex alimony laws. If you have any questions about your rights or obligations, call our Powell, OH spousal support attorneys for help. 
  • Child Custody: For parents, few things are more stressful than going through a difficult child custody dispute. Our Powell, Ohio family law attorneys possess a deep knowledge of Ohio’s custody and visitation laws. We will protect your parental rights and help you find the best solution. 
  • Paternity: Paternity is the foundation of a father’s rights and responsibilities in Ohio. Without paternity, a father cannot seek custody or visitation. Similarly, he cannot be ordered to pay child support. If you have any questions about proving paternity, call our Powell, OH family lawyers for help.  
  • Adoption: You can change a child’s life through adoption. We are here to help you navigate the complexities of the adoption process. With experience handling step-parent adoption, grandparent adoption, and private adoption, our Powell, OH family lawyers will protect your rights. 
  • Family Mediation: Family law cases are often well-suited for mediation. A form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), mediation puts an emphasis on collaborative problem solving. It is not a strictly adversarial process. We represent clients in mediation—helping them find solutions to divorce cases, custody disputes, and more. 
  • Contempt & Enforcement: If your former spouse or co-parent refuses to follow an agreement or court order, you may need to take action to protect yourself. Call our Powell, OH family law contempt & enforcement lawyers for immediate assistance.

Client Reviews

Had free consultation. Advice given was taken, and resulted in change of mind in the other/opposing party. We therefore did not need to retain. Should opposing party resume original opinion, we will retain.


I was in a terrible custody dispute with my ex. I was very upset and afraid of my ex. Rodd listened to everything I said and remembered everything I said. He was aggressive in court and used the information I gave him very well. We won the case and my ex has backed off.


I wanted an easy divorce from my wife. She wanted a fight. Rodd and I discussed fair terms for a dissolution. Because he was pro active and stayed on top of the case, my wife and I finally reached an agreement and had a dissolution. I highly recommend Rodd.


I hired Linda Lawrence because I have a business and I wanted to protect it in my divorce. Linda is top notch and knows about business finance and assets. I was able to keep my business and not have to pay my wife anything from it. Hire her.


I hired Linda Lawrence because I needed an aggressive attorney. Linda was able to stand up against the other attorney and was very aggressive in court. It was an expensive divorce case, but that was because the other attorney was very aggressive and Linda was very thorough. I had great results in my case and highly recommend Linda.
