Jimmy J. Lefton, Esq.
Jimmy Lefton’s goal was to build a family law practice in Cincinnati committed to helping his clients deal with the legal, financial and emotional challenges of going through a divorce or dissolution. For the past 20 years, Jimmy has stayed focused on this goal and has developed a full-service family law practice, 513Divorce, to help his clients meet their needs and achieve the best possible outcome.

If you are contemplating divorce or going through a divorce, Jimmy can assist you in the following areas:

• Dissolutions,
• Change in Custody,
• Grandparent Rights,
• Child Support Establishment and Modification,
• Spousal Support,
• Collaborative Divorce,
• Paternity and Adoption.

Jimmy understands that his clients would rather avoid the time, cost and drama of litigating Family Law matters. Therefore, Jimmy and his experienced staff work very hard with his clients to explore every opportunity to resolve issues out of court.

Legal matters related to divorce and post-decree divorce modifications are highly emotional. Jimmy approach each case with a sensitivity and compassion for the adults involved, but especially for the children. He strives to help families avoid the drama of courtroom litigation while resolving divorce disputes and post-decree modification matters.
