Areas of Expertise
As an associate at the Law Office of Anthony W. Greco, Hari Sathappan practices in family law, including divorce, custody, termination and modification of support, grandparent custody, and appeals.
Hari Sathappan works on divorce and family law cases that are high income, high asset, and high conflict. As a result, Hari finds that success is best achieved by building cases with the thought of an appeal in mind from the start. This means developing case law and evidence through thorough research and discovery. By creating this solid foundation, Hari Sathappan places his clients in a position of strength during negotiations to, hopefully, resolve their cases in their favor. Even if settlement is not possible, Hari finds this foundation greatly improves the chances of success at trial in a family law matter.
In family law, the results of a case have repercussions that can last a lifetime. Orders can have a heavy impact on one’s life and relationship with their children. This is why Hari is so dedicated to his clients, as he strives to ensure their success. However, Hari Sathappan believes is equally important to educate clients on how to deal and communicate with their ex in a way that avoids subsequent litigation or, at least, puts them in a positive position if a second round of litigation will begin.
Hari Sathappan handles cases in a manner that is time and labor intensive, but Hari believes that going all in is necessary to help his clients. Hari’s dedication to his clients, and his skill as an attorney, has helped many of his clients achieve the goals they desired. In family law, your children, livelihood, and happiness are at stake and there is nothing more important.
Hari Sathappan is originally from Wheeling, WV, but moved to Saint Clairsville, OH later in life. He then attended undergrad at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, where he majored in neurology and creative writing. After which, Hari moved to Columbus to attend The Moritz College of Law at OSU. While in law school, Hari served as the Editor-in-Chief of The Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law. Before joining our family law firm, Hari practiced in real estate, including disputes over oil, gas, and mineral rights.
However, outside the courtroom, Hari enjoys spending time with his family and catching up on his favorite series. Hari Sathappan and his wife currently live in Dublin along with their son and two Shetland sheepdogs.
