Upfront, direct and honest
Had no clue as to the procedures in fighting an OVI citation. He was direct and honest from the start. He felt I had a very good chance of beating an unwarranted charge and laid it on the line the first time I sat down with him. The fees were well worth the outcome. He stuck to his game plan with the facts and discredited unreliable testing. I felt comfortable from the start that he would take care of my case. I am extremely relieved to have this ordeal over with the hiring of Mr. Morrocco.

Exceptional Attorney
Mr. Marrocco took my case after my previous attorney dismissed me due to a court ordered monthly stipend that did not include attorney's fees. He was willing to take my case and stand by me even though he had no certainty that I would ever be able to pay him. Mr. Marrocco showed compassion for my situation and enthusiasm for a fair resolution. I highly recommend him and his firm, Saia & Piatt.

Complete Satisfaction on my OVI Case
I've been fortunate to have Mike Marrocco as my attorney in a recent OVI case. My case had particular complexities as I do not reside in Ohio. Mike did a great job in understanding the implications of every step in the process from arrest to ultimate outcome in both Ohio and my state and provided perfect counsel on the alternatives. Mike also explored many alternative tactics and approaches and the ultimate outcome was phenomenal. Please understand that despite the favorable outcome, I would still recommend him to others for his thoroughness and intelligent approach to alternatives. It also doesn't hurt that he was a former Prosecutor in Delaware County, and obviously has a good rapport with both Judges and current Prosecutors. Thanks Mike for all that you've done - this is tough to write with respect to attorneys, but you're well worth the fees.
