Thomas S. Sapinsley

West Chester, Ohio
Tom graduated from Indiana University in 1978 with a degree in economics. Tom then attended  the University of Cincinnati College of Law. Tom has been in private practice for more than 35 years.  Although Tom's primary field of practice is family law, he enjoys handling other types of litigation including business and employment related matters.  Tom's philosophy is that an acceptable negotiated settlement is always better for the client than proceeding to trial with all of its risks, uncertainties and related expense.  Tom believes that by fully educating the client on legal matters and providing other valuable information helps the client immensely. To that end, Tom considers himself a facilitator who will assist the client in making the best decision.  Oftentimes, divorce is the client's first experience with an attorney. This is typically a stressful situation which can be minimized by engaging an attorney, such as Tom, who understands that the client requires and expects prompt, responsive and complete services.
