At The Lampe Law Office, LLC, our mission is as straightforward as the advice that we provide to our clients: We strive to provide our clients with the exceptional, results-oriented representation they deserve, and we aim to put our clients’ minds at ease once they have entrusted us with their cases.

Our lawyers use thorough research, honest presentation and proven trial strategies to intelligently and efficiently attack legal issues.

Hard Working, Client-Focused Lawyers

Our team is results-oriented, but also practical with the advice we give, honest with our opinions, and ethical in our representation in achieving a client’s goals. From the first consultation, our clients receive personal attention and custom-tailored advice that is specific to their situations.

Every single case that comes to our firm is of the highest importance to our clients. Understanding this, we pursue each claim — from straightforward family law proceedings to complex divorces to probate litigation — with the hands-on attention and exceptional representation our clients need.

Attorney Thomas S. Sapinsley

Tom graduated from Indiana University in 1978 with a degree in economics. Tom then attended  the University of Cincinnati College of Law. Tom has been in private practice for more than 35 years.  Although Tom's primary field of practice is family law, he enjoys handling other types of litigation including business and employment related matters.  Tom's philosophy is that an acceptable negotiated settlement is always better for the client than proceeding to trial with all of its risks, uncertainties and related expense.  Tom believes that by fully educating the client on legal matters and providing other valuable information helps the client immensely. To that end, Tom considers himself a facilitator who will assist the client in making the best decision.  Oftentimes, divorce is the client's first experience with an attorney.
