Donald K. Moser

Fairfield, Ohio

For over 20 years, I have been living and practicing law in the communities of Butler County Ohio. I truly enjoy being in private practice, dedicating my practice to family law and helping over 2,800 clients in matters related to marriage, family and children. I also represent clients in the areas of wills and estate planning and landlord/tenant matters.

Fully trained and qualified as a collaborative law lawyer in 2002.

I strive to provide every one of my clients with honest, compassionate and effective representation at a reasonable fee. I keep your best interests in mind during every phase of representation.

Butler County is my home and I believe in developing strong communities and supporting the families that are part of my community. I grew up in Butler County and my father was a lawyer for 25 years and a judge for 20, former Butler County Common Pleas Court, Judge John Moser. I am proud of what my dad has accomplished for the community and the Butler County judicial system. I enjoy sharing stories about my dad and the history of the Butler County court system.

In my own professional practice, I am involved in the Butler County Bar Association serving many roles from President (2011-2012) to chairing a number of committees. Currently, I am on the Board of Trustees. In 2013, I received the Professionalism Award from the Butler County Bar Association in recognition of my service to the legal profession as an attorney and community leader.

I also serve as Magistrate in the Fairfield Municipal Court which helps me keep involved with the community, Fairfield, where I live and have my office.

Licensed to practice law in Ohio and the United States Southern Ohio District. Currently, hold inactive licenses for the state of Virginia and Washington DC.
