DSF Law - Let our team work for you

Experienced, Understanding Attorneys


Years of experience helping Clients work through life’s most difficult problems.

Headquartered in downtown Columbus, the firm of Dahlberg, Stanley & Foderetti, LLC. was created with the goal of providing Clients throughout the state of Ohio with support and counsel to help them through difficult events in their lives. We bring extensive experience and professionalism to every case and customize our support to your individual needs and concerns.

The process of hiring a lawyer for your legal matter seems simple – a consultation, retention and representation. But what most people don’t understand is the beginning of the process is like a domino to nearly everything that follows.

If the initial consultation is missing certain, critical elements, the path you head down may not be the best and, like many poor starts, may cause unnecessary delays, money and even affect the results.

Nobody wants unreasonable delays, money wasted and poor results. But how do you avoid it? How do you set your case on the right course? You do it through smart and calculated planning. Strategy matters and our law firm builds a custom strategy for your case and its facts.

It starts from the initial phone call. Whether you call us or, after you complete and send the "How Can We Help?" form lower on this page, we call you, you and the experienced attorney with whom you speak dive right into your needs and what we can do to help you.

Areas of Practice


Despite common conceptions, divorces can either be a contested proceeding or they can be structured completely based on the agreements of the parties. Our experienced domestic relations attorneys can help you understand which option is going to be the best fit for you based on your unique situation.


A dissolution is a non-adversarial, "no-fault," legal proceeding to terminate a marriage. The parties file a joint petition with the court, requesting that the court review and approve the agreement that they have entered into which resolves all relevant issues, and that the court terminate their marriage.

Estate Planning / Probate

Our goal is to help you plan for the future and minimize or avoid the cumbersome and often unnecessary Probate process. However, if you find yourself in charge of winding up a loved one's estate, we will work to ensure that his/her final wishes are carried out as quickly and efficiently as possible.


People often have a number of misconceptions about bankruptcy. People often think that filing for bankruptcy means you will lose your home or other assets that you have worked a lifetime to acquire. In many situations, this is simply not the case. By understanding the bankruptcy process better, you can make an informed decision whether filing for bankruptcy is the right choice for you.


Whether you are seeking Shared Parenting or Sole Custody, our attorneys can help you to craft a resolution to your case that is in the best interest of your children. Our family attorneys are prepared to discuss and help you analyze your legal rights and responsibilities related to the custody and care of your children. 


Adoption can change a child’s whole world. However, the process can be confusing and frustrating. Our knowledgeable attorneys can help you navigate Ohio’s adoption laws to help ensure that you end up with the outcome that you want.

child support

Ohio’s child support system can be confusing and infuriating. Our team of attorneys has experience working with the system in order to ensure that you are treated fairly. We can make sure that you are receiving what you are entitled to or, in the alternative, that you are not paying more than you should be.

Juvenile Law

Juvenile law encompasses many different types of issues, from representing minors in custody or paternity battles to working with children accused of criminal conduct. At our office, the goal is to protect the best interests and the rights of children and minors involved in court proceedings, whatever the reason.

Name Changes

There are various reasons for requesting a name change. It may be based on events such as divorce, or it may simply be based on dissatisfaction with the name. These matters are handled through the probate court in your county and our attorneys can help you navigate the necessary filings and procedures.


The precepts of the law may be comprehended under these three points: to live honestly, to hurt no man willfully, and to render every man his due carefully.
— Aristotle
