Attorney Dalma Grandjean to present at Southwestern Ohio's LGBT Informational Expo August 18, 2016

Attorney Dalma Grandjean Presented at the Greene County Bar Association Domestic Relations/Juvenile Court Seminar

Dalma Grandjean presented an “Overview of Military Divorce” on December 11, 2015 at the annual Greene County Bar Association Domestic Relations/Juvenile Court Seminar. This is an important topic for area domestic relations practitioners because we have many service members and spouses living in our region due to our proximity to Wright-Patterson AFB. Often these service members are stationed overseas and in need of knowledgeable military divorce practitioners.

Appointment of Peter R. Certo, Jr. to Federal Criminal Justice Advocate program
