As difficult as child custody and parenting-time disputes already are, nobody wants the process to be any more painful than it has to be. Yet the law controlling these disputes is itself a complex array of mathematical formulas and uniquely specific requirements.

Our Clients Are Saying

  • Thanks Jay! Great work by the way! You really rose above any expectations and did so professionally with patience, determination and accomplished more than I had hoped for and expected. I appreciated all you did.





  • Because of my frustrations in dealing with a bigger legal firm, I came across Jay Tentinger's name in an Internet search and we set up a meeting. His direct, professional, no nonsense approach to my situation impressed me and I switched my legal matters to his firm. I found his advice to be very insightful and helpful. In my opinion, he helped resolve differences that otherwise might have prolonged the case. I recommend him and his firm for its integrity and hard work, and I continue to refer friends whom I think would do well to avail themselves of his services.

  • My wife and I had a legal matter that came up and we needed a great attorney. We found Jay Tentinger, and we were so glad we did. He took care of our legal matter with professionalism, courtesy and respect -- for us and for our case.





  • In our office we had a situation arise that required the assistance of a Law Firm that deals with business issues. I contacted the Tentinger Law Firm and explained our situation. They were wonderful. They researched our situation and provided us with exactly the information we needed. I cannot say enough good things about TLF. I would highly recommend TLF to anyone who may have employment issues or any other problem for that matter. If we ever have another situation like before or have the need for new legal representation, TLF is the firm we will call.

  • Ross recently helped me with a civil suit against my last employer. He completely guided me through the process and was extremely knowledgeable. He kept me informed of developments and helped design my arguments to fortify my position. I would recommend him again to anyone in need of advice and/or compensation from wrong doing.
