Abbie Obenour

Of Counsel

I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and set up my law practice here upon graduation from Capital University Law School. I help families at the beginning and the end of life – with custody and adoptions, surrogacies and gamete donation, estate and trust planning, estate and trust administration, and adult guardianship. I live in Clintonville with my family and two rescue dogs. I like to bake, knit, and make quilts in my spare time.
