C_Gustav_Dahlberg“We often hear that divorce clients are generally good people at their worst, especially when it comes to contested litigation.  I believe that one of my jobs as a Columbus family law attorney is to help my clients find their way past their worst days and to move on with their lives, beyond the courtroom.”

As a Fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, and a selectee to the 2020 Ohio Super Lawyers list, Gus Dahlberg is a respected and experienced Columbus divorce attorney. Exclusively focused on domestic relations and family law, Gus has successfully represented a wide array of clients on a number of issues ranging from complex asset division to high-income child and spousal support cases.

A graduate of Ohio University’s Honors Tutorial College and the Ohio State University’s Moritz College of Law, Gus is still involved in educating students and his fellow attorneys by serving as a frequent lecturer on family law issues. He is an active member of the Family Law Sections of the American Bar Association (ABA) (currently serving as co-chair of the CLE Committee and chair of the Law Practice Management & Technology Committee) the Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA), and the Columbus Bar Association (CBA), and is certified as a Family Relations Law Specialist by the OSBA.

Gus is also actively involved in the Clintonville community where he lives with his family. He is a frequent volunteer in the Columbus City School system and assisted in the formation, coordination and management of a K-2 chess program at Clinton Elementary School.  He served as a board member and past chair of Clintonville Go Public, a nonprofit community association working to support and promote the neighborhood public schools in the Whetstone pathway. He is also a former board member of the North Columbus Intramural League and an active youth sports coach.
