I was charged with an OVI recently and was innocent of the charge. (I'm sure thats what everyone says right?) After 6 months, my case was dismissed and I "won". He fought for me every step of the way. His office was ALWAYS in contact with me throughout the entire process. He was always available for any questions or concerns. He was relentless in filing requests for evidence from the prosecution. His repeated and timely actions finally led to the dismissal of the case because the prosecution was unable to provide the evidence needed to continue the case. During the case, I never felt that he should be doing more to represent me. If you are considering hiring an attorney to represent you, call him ASAP. He will listen to your case and give you an honest assessment your situation.
I am very grateful that I chose Shawn Dominy to represent me in my OVI case. Apart from a few minor traffic violations, I had never run into trouble with the law before this past summer. I knew that I wanted a good lawyer to help reduce my charge as much as possible, but had no idea where to turn. I went to Shawn's website after getting a recommendation from a friend and decided that this was the best person to represent me. Although Shawn is not the cheapest lawyer in the area, he has years of experience and knowledge specifically in the area of OVIs, and thus knows the laws pertaining to these cases better than anyone else. I figured that I was out a ton of money either way - I might as well spend a little more to get the best OVI specialist in the area and the best possible outcome to my case.
I am very pleased with Shawn and would absolutely recommend him to others. After expressing concerns about the effects this charge would have on my career and my future (I know several individuals who have lost their jobs because of OVI charges), Shawn did everything possible to help reduce the charge and make sure it would not show up on future background checks. In addition to reducing my DUI charge to reckless operation and reducing my fine and license suspension, Shawn treated me with dignity and respect throughout the entire process. He constantly kept me informed of updates to the case, and allowed me to make my own decisions with his counsel. He was very supportive and made me feel much more comfortable during this very stressful time. I am very pleased with the results of my case and highly recommend Shawn to anyone else in need of representation for an OVI case.
Shawn got my wifes OVI charge reduced drastically and more importantly kept my wife out of jail. My wife would be in much worse shape today had he not had the knowledge and understanding of our specific situation. He appeared multiple times and saved us thousands of dollars. GREAT lawyer.
Having Shawn for my lawyer took the stress out of my DUI case. He has had a lot of experience and knowledge in this area. We appreciated his confident, calming demeaner. It doesn't take long to see that he is a nice, good person.
I couldn't have made through this ordeal not only without the lawyer aspect but his friendship. His reassurance that things would be ok was most needed. Mr. Dominy is an amazing lawyer and I not only have a lawyer for life but a friend.
I can with out hesitation highly recommend Mr. Shawn Dominy. Mr. Dominy treated my legal matter in a professional and caring manner. Being worried and upset, he made sure I knew exactly what was going on with my case and what I needed to do to prepare for the hearing. I was treated as a individual not just a case, during this extremely difficult time. Mr. Dominy's handwork, friendliness and communication makes for a fantastic lawyer to have by your side. Thanks so much!
Mr. Dominy is the ONLY one for whatever situation you need resolved. He has represented me 3 times in the past 10 years. My first case was a ridiculous DUI charge which he swiftly fixed for me. My second case was a VERY tricky case involving my SUV being stolen, wrecked and totaling another SUV, the offender "driver" leaving the scene, and drug paraphernalia being found in my SUV. I had very serious charges pressed against me. Shawn was able to resolve the case with me pleading to a small charge having nothing to do with a drug offense! Amazing work! My 3rd assistance with Mr. Dominy representing me was very embarrassing to say the least. He treated me with the up most respect and dignity regarding my case. I had an overdose in my own home. The police charged me with absurd charges and I was facing jail time, license suspension, probation.... they wanted to nail me for something that was an unfortunate accident. Again Shawn Dominy saved the day and got everything dropped down to one year un reporting probation.
As you can see I have hired Mr. Dominy for 3 different legal situations. ALL TURNED OUT EXCEPTIONAL!!!
Thank you Shawn Dominy for your professionalism, hard work, caring heart, swift action, and always keeping me at ease with each case and up to date. Look no further.... Mr. Shawn Dominy is the only choice for your legal needs!
I came to Shawn Dominy with a tough DUI situation. There were quite a few details of my case that made me tough to defend and were working against me with my case. After speaking to quite a few different Central Ohio DUI Attorneys the day after my arrest, I had the best feeling about what Mr. Dominy had to say.
From the beginning, he was very professional, transparent, and did not over promise. He stuck to the facts and was very informed in regards to the law. As this was my first offense and included a high charge, I was going into this situation with very little knowledge and experience. Mr. Dominy kept me informed on the law and was very proactive with each aspect of my case. He communicated with me via email and phone and was extremely efficient. When I had questions, no matter how minor or ignorant, Mr. Dominy treated each response with care, professional demeanor, and urgency.
Mr. Dominy walked me through each step of the process with ease and without judgement. Ultimately, I was able to get my high charge reduced and walk away with reasonable consequences for my mistake. Even upon the conclusion of my settlement, Mr. Dominy continued to provide additional explanation and follow ups for what needed to be done.
I would highly recommend Shawn Dominy to anyone facing a DUI charge in Central Ohio. His knowledge, push for action, ease in communication, and professional demeanor made a daunting experience much less intimidating.
When I found myself in need of representation, I did not know where to go so I called around to several different lawyers. After speaking with numerous lawyers the conversation I had with Mr. Dominy stuck out the most to me because he was not only extremely knowledgeable and professional, but he was also relatable. During a very stressful and scary time in my life Mr. Dominy was able to provide me peace of mind. Throughout the process he kept me well informed and quickly responded to all of my questions. I especially liked that we were able to do the majority of our communication thru email because it was very convenient. Mr. Dominy was able to have my charge of OVI lowered even with my participation in some field sobriety tests. I would highly recommend Mr. Dominy to anyone I know in a similar situation.
I first researched lawyers and came across Shawn Dominy Law . I read his website and felt comfortable. I contacted Shawn immediately after I was charged and summoned to court I met with Shawn to discuss my options. Shawn was very informative regarding my case. He was always available to answer questions or concerns of mine and put me at ease with the situation at hand. Regarding my case we contacted a lot through email and Shawn responded in a timely and professional manner. He always makes himself available to answer or talk about anything. Once we decided the route to take for my case Shawn kept me very informed with the court processes and documents that needed to be signed etc. Fortunately for my case the process was simple as this was my first criminal charge and Shawn sought diversion for my case. I was awarded diversion and my case was dismissed. Following the dismissal Shawn walked me down to the courthouse to help me file expungement for my case free of charge and walked me through the process. I would recommend Shawn Dominy as he took my case seriously, was informative and always there to guide you through the process and reach the best possible outcome for your case. Overall a great experience with Shawn and would refer him to any others down the road if needed.
