Attorney Profile

Focusing his practice exclusively on divorce and other family law matters, John H. Cousins IV is an attorney at the Grossman Law Offices. He provides representation to people throughout the central portion of the state of Ohio from the firm’s offices in Columbus. Raised in Ohio, Mr. Cousins attended Ohio University as an undergraduate, where he majored in political science and earned his Bachelor of Arts in 2005. Remaining in the state for his legal education, he enrolled at Capital University Law School in Columbus, and he was a member of the school’s Phillip J. Fulton National Moot Court Team before receiving his Juris Doctor in 2008.

Mr. Cousins joined the Grossman Law Offices in January 2015. Prior to entering private practice, he spent nearly three years with the Franklin County Prosecutor’s Office, and he then served as a judicial attorney for judges on Ohio’s 10th District Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Ohio.

Mr. Cousins’s primary focus is the representation of clients whose marriages have irretrievably broken down. In that regard, he helps them deal with child and spousal support, the division of complex marital assets and debts, and child custody and visitation. With his extensive trial experience, Mr. Cousins has proved to be an effective courtroom adversary on their behalf when negotiations have broken down and the clients have not been able to come to an accord after going through mediation sessions. His other family law experience has included the preparation and review of prenuptial agreements as well as the obtaining of post-divorce parenting and support order modifications and enforcement. Mr. Cousins is admitted to practice in Ohio and before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.
