Teresa Fout began her legal career in San Diego in 2004,
where she worked as an associate for a Trusts and Estates
firm, administering estates, probating wills, and litigating
She was then hired by the San Diego City Attorney’s Office as a prosecutor, where she spent much of her time in jury trials prosecuting a variety of crimes ranging from shoplifting and illegal drugs to DUIs. She also worked closely with local government and elected officials on projects aimed at bettering the community by proactively reducing crime.
In 2008, she relocated to Ohio and opened a law practice focusing on matters related to the family: divorce, dissolution, collaborative law, mediation, and adoption. Ms. Fout has adopted her children and has personally gone through the adoption process herself. She also handles court-appointed Guardian ad Litem work, and actively advocates for alternative dispute resolution options in Canton, Ohio.

Teresa was the guardian of my case, she listened to what my younger sister and I had to say and had our safety as the main priority no matter what. She handled the case with compassion and professionalism. She has saved my sister and I from a dangerous situation with our biological mother and has changed our lives for the better.
Teresa Fout & her law partner are amazing!!! Teresa was our attorney & she was amazing!! She was always there day or night!! She returned our calls & emails promptly!!! BEST FAMILY ATTORNEY BY FAR!!! Thank you Teresa for everything!!! Your the BEST!!!
Teresa is a very professional legal representative that was very patient with me and very comforting. She took the time to answer and clarify, if needed, any questions I had. She was very helpful and knew the laws and how to handle what I would call a difficult situation. She even assisted me after the divorce was final with some advice I needed and was there for me even with her busy caseload. I would certainly recommend her to anyone that would need her services.
Attorney Fout is amazing! She had to wear many hats during a very difficult case for my children and me over a 3-year process. She has a great depth in many areas of the law with the ability to understand how painful these times can be. She is very professional and has an extreme passion for high integrity. Because my children were involved her background as a Guardian ad Litem was so profound. I recommend her to others in need, as she can help in a plethora of legal avenues.
