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 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.
Teresa Fout is a fantastic advocate for divorce. She is concerned with the well-being and safety of children and did a good job getting my family what we needed. She is well-spoken, intelligent and extremely creative when problem-solving. She is personable and timely. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good family, adoption, or divorce attorney. She is supportive, logical, and does her research.
Teresa is a knowledgeable and very professional attorney who cares about her clients. She did a great job in walking me through divorce, custody and support issues which are inherently fraught with emotional overload and can be simply overwhelming. I believe her solid advice prevented me from taking unnecessary actions, which would have resulted in substantially higher costs without gaining anything in return. I highly recommend her.
Teresa was wonderful, compassionate and professional. I would highly recommend her to others.
