I was unfortunately was arrested for an OVI refusal in Ohio and the arrest details of my case were extremely non-favorable at first glance and the initial interpretation of the unfortunate events led me to believe there was no cause to battle the inevitable. Simply put, I felt as though my life was ruined and everything I have worked for was gone. My career requires me to drive for work purposes and losing my battle could have HAD absolutely devastating effects on my personal life and career. I needed the best attorney for my complicated case and after doing a TON OF RESEARCH and CONTACTING HIS PEERS, Jon Saiaâ€™s name came up often.
The particulars of my case required a strong understanding of technical and medical principles not possessed by many of the attorneys out there. On top of that, Jon is a very personable guy and that goes a long way with people. Jon is open to any ideas you as a client that he may leverage to defend your case; share as many of the details as possible, even if you believe that they are non-significant. Jon and his team are readily available for his clients and do not shun even the seemingly dumb questions you may have now that you have gotten yourself in this mess.
Do the research â€“ Jon is one of the best OVI attorneyâ€™s in the country. This reference in no way, shape or form is intended to sound like an advertisement; this is truly the way I feel. Jon Saia and his Investigator Evelyn DeGaugh saved my life â€“ I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ATTORNEY AND HIS TEAM!

12 years ago I was faced with a challenging domestic custody case. After a search for a strong, agressive trial lawyer I was fortunate to find Jon. He and his group took on a difficult and very lengthy trial. During this period Jon was responsive, engaging and very passionate about my case and the actual legal aspects of the trial. His staff was equally absolute every step of the way. As important as it is to have great legal representation these cases are very emotional and draining. I found Jon and all of his staff very sympathetic with a great "bed side manner".
The bottom line is always the outcome. Only with this firms powerful and effective representation did this case have the ending I fully expected.
Since then Jon has represented me and my family on various family law matters all ending in success.
For those in search of extraordinary legal services requiring energy, overpowering and exhilarating representation I highly recommend this powerful attorney and his firm.

A friend of mine recommended I call Jon for a pending OVI case I had in Columbus. I spoke to three different attorney’s at the time, but after speaking to Jon he made the choice pretty easy. Jon is a straight shooter. He isn’t going to tell you what he can/can’t do for you until he gathers all the facts and understands what he is dealing with. Jon will study the situation, figure out if the officers did their job correctly and then ensure that you did violate the law to warrant the arrest. He is hard working, knowledgeable and will do extensive research on the entire arrest. I was charged with five different violations, and was found not guilty on each because of Jon’s continued hard work and dedication. My situation wasn’t an open/close case and attention to detail was essential. Jon gave his full efforts, and thankfully his persistence won in the end. I highly recommend his services to anybody who needs assistance with an OVI.
