Attorney Profile

Jodi R. Smilack is an attorney at Grossman Law Offices in Columbus, Ohio, where she focuses her practice on family law, particularly high-income divorce issues. She represents clients throughout central Ohio.

Practicing law for over a decade, Ms. Smilack has experience with matters involving child custody, child support, paternity, spousal support and visitation. While much of her work involves negotiation, she is highly experienced in the courtroom, and is fully ready to fight for her clients at trial if it is the best way to bring them the results they need. She holds a license to practice law before all Ohio state courts.

Ms. Smilack earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan and received her law degree from UIC John Marshall Law School. While she was a law student, she participated in moot court and a domestic violence legal clinic. She also developed her practical legal skills by clerking for a Chicago based law firm, where she drafted pleadings, conducted legal research and learned about interacting with clients.

Over the years as a practicing family law attorney, Ms. Smilack has acquired substantial knowledge, which she uses to educate her peers in the profession. In 2012, she contributed to Better Lawyer, a publication of the Columbus Bar Association, and in 2020, she served as a speaker on divorce law for the National Business Institute.

Developing her leadership skills is especially important to Ms. Smilack. She has participated in the Columbus Bar Association Barrister Leadership Program and the Ohio State Bar Association Leadership Academy.
