Donald A. Cox
YEARS OF PRACTICE:34 years
I became an attorney to help people better understand the legal system and to use it wisely.
My years as a retired judge and mediator give me a more realistic view of client's cases and the cost of litigation. I am ever mindful that ordinary people are nervous and sometimes afraid in court settings and I try to make their experience with me anxiety free.
I enjoy working with elder folks and relieving their feelings of frustration and worry concerning the disposition of their property after death.
We are available on weekends and in the evening. We typically give clients an accurate estimate of fees before any committment to us to perform the work.
Someone who needs to better understand the processes of the law and needs reassurance that they matter and that their problem has a reasonable solution.
I enjoy gardening and brush clearing as they take me out into the natural outdoor world. I also enjoy helping my wife repair her rental properties.
I donate to the social outreach programs of the Catholic Diocease of Columbus and am a member of St. Joseph Cathedral.
