Providing family and domestic law representation, our team at the Suriano Law Firm, LLC, is dedicated to helping people get through difficult personal situations. We serve clients in the Columbus and Central Ohio area, offering honest counsel and focused advocacy.

Whether through collaborative law, mediation, negotiation or litigation, our team is committed to getting the best results for our clients and their children. We are experienced in a range of complex family law problems, including those involving divorce, spousal support, property division, child custody and support.

We begin our relationship with clients during a one-hour consultation. At that time, our team discusses your situation, needs, concerns and goals associated with your unique family dynamic. We recognize that while legal situations may share similarities with others, each of our client’s cases is different. Our team works closely with clients, advising them of their legal options and crafting personalized strategies aimed at pursuing favorable resolutions to their legal problems.

At the Suriano Law Firm, LLC, we understand the emotional strain that dealing with domestic-related legal issues can put on people and their children. Our team is sensitive to the personal nature of the matters involved in family law cases, and we provide the compassionate, yet objective, guidance that our clients need and deserve. We stand by those we represent through each phase of the legal process, vigorously advocating on behalf of their rights and best interests.
