Sallee M. Fry is a partner at Santen & Hughes who focuses on family law. In her decades of practice in this area, Sallee has represented clients in a wide array of matters, from litigated divorces to collaborative dissolutions. In her family law practice, she often finds herself referencing her favorite quote from Nelson Mandela: “it always seems impossible until it’s done.”
While she often represents spouses, a significant portion of Sallee’s practice involves her work as a Guardian Ad Litem. In those situations, she is appointed by courts to protect the best interests of children. In 2002, Sallee presented a case to the Supreme Court of Ohio which has since become one of the most frequently cited cases by Ohio courts involving the rights of parents to raise their children free from interference by the state.
Sallee is a member of the Ohio State Bar Association and the Cincinnati Academy for Collaborative Professionals. Sallee is passionate about her volunteer work tutoring impoverished children and the time she spends with her children and two young grandsons.
