Trusted Attorneys in Columbus Ohio


The Nigh Law Group’s attorneys have extensive courtroom experience. Joseph Nigh believes that to be able to adequately evaluate a case and advise a client an attorney must have experience dealing with cases in court. Joseph has handled cases in nearly half of Ohio’s 88 counties. He has obtained favorable decisions for clients throughout Ohio. Courtney Zollars and Elizabeth Werner have considerable experience in various aspects of family law litigation. It is this cumulative experience that allows Nigh Law Group the ability to negotiate favorable resolutions outside of the courtroom as well as obtain them in the courtroom.  

Joseph A. Nigh

Founding Partner, Attorney 

Joseph believes in a dual focus approach to litigation. He feels that an attorney should always work to resolve a case without a trial to avoid the costs, both financially and emotionally, that clients have with litigation. He also believes at the same time that an attorney should be preparing the case for trial. This dual focus allows the attorney to be prepared for all issues that arise and provide the client with the best alternatives and results in their cases. 

At NLG we understand that each client and each case is unique. Our ability to understand this helps us achieve favorable results for our clients. We believe clients should be informed of the legal process and how their issues will likely be dealt with by the courts. It is our experience in the courtroom that allows us to provide this information.

Many cases require the use of experts. We regularly work with accountants, psychologists, counselors, and economists to assist us in providing the best information to the court on behalf of our clients. It is the ability to identify the need and benefit of using these experts, along with our experience working side-by-side with these experts, that gives us a strategic advantage over other law firms. 

Allow our trusted and experienced trial attorneys and staff to advise you and represent you during your time of need.

There has not been one stone un-turned or any fact lost on him. He and his co counsel in my case, Courtney Zollars, and office personnel Lynn are the most dedicated,detail oriented, and personable group of professionals you can hope for. "
