Retirement and Closing

The team at the Dayton Family Law Center, Inc. took great pride in serving the community for nine years. We have never wavered in our mission to provide affordable legal representation for moderate income families. 

Unfortunately, there were staffing changes at the end of 2018 that bring our mission to a close. Connie Klayko announced to the board of her intentions to retire from the Dayton Family Law Center to pursue a limited private practice. And, Michael Smith who had been with our center for just over two years, left the firm for an exciting opportunity out of state. The board agreed that the Dayton Family Law Center, Inc. could not survive without these key members. 

Clients with open cases will have their cases reassigned to Connie Klayko who will continue to represent them as a part of her private practice. Ms. Klayko will continue to honor all the terms and agreements of each client’s original Retainer Agreement with the Dayton Family Law Center. She will be contacting each client and providing them with the details of transitioning his or her case. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Klayko at 937-813-1228 or

Since January of 2019, we limited intake to only those client’s whose case should be completed within six months. As of April 1, 2019, we are no longer taking any new cases. 

We wish to thank all the individuals, organizations, and the Dayton community who supported our efforts through the years. Your support made our mission possible.
