    Attorney Profile

    Focusing his practice exclusively on family law matters, Anthony R. Auten is an attorney at the Grossman Law Offices. Based in Columbus, Ohio, he furnishes representation to clients throughout the central part of the state. Mr. Auten has been admitted to practice before all Ohio state courts since 1972, and he has been certified as a specialist in family relations law by the Ohio State Bar Association.

    A significant portion of Mr. Auten’s practice is centered on divorce, and many of his clients have substantial net worth and complex property holdings. Regardless of their financial status, however, he helps each of his clients deal with such related issues as child custody and visitation, the division of marital assets and debts, and spousal and child support. Mr. Auten often encourages them to come to an accord on these matters through mediation or negotiations, but when that proves to be fruitless and talks break down, he is a forceful courtroom advocate on their behalf.

    Mr. Auten’s family law experience has additionally included the preparation and review of prenuptial and postmarital agreements, and he has also helped people whose marriages have already been legally dissolved and who now want the court to modify or enforce existing parenting or support orders. His superb track record and high degree of ethics have earned him the respect of his colleagues, as evidenced by his receipt of an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and an “Excellent” peer review rating through Avvo. In addition, he has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America. Mr. Auten is a 1972 graduate of William & Mary Law School and a member of several professional organizations.

    *AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell® is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary.
