Hands down the best in the area, as the rest of these reviews attest as well. I can't say enough about Jon Sinn. Jon combines honesty, knowledge, hard work, attention to detail, and local connections to give you the best defense.
From day 1 Jon made a great impression on me. He said don’t pay my fee if you aren’t trying to win this case and don’t pay me if they have you dead to rights. He can’t do any better than a cheap lawyer for an OVI case if you blow high and look horrible on the sobriety test. Still, Jon’s fees are very reasonable and he was much more affordable than other lawyers I talked to.
Jon simply has amazing lawyer skills. As he explained it, he uses his knowledge of the law and his personal connections to find any weaknesses, any openings, anything to take advantage of leverage to get the best deal. His defense will not rely on a single element but rather will involve a multi-prong approach. And while it may seem bleak, as it did for me with a prosecutor that clearly was playing hardball, those opportunities do arise and undoubtedly Jon will give you the best chance of creating, finding, and taking advantage of them.
It is clear that Jon has a lot of integrity and has his clients best interest at all times. I have heard horror stories of lawyers that mail it in after getting paid. Not Jon, he was continually filing for all hearings and documents that could help. And incredibly, Jon kept fighting for me after the judge’s sentence! After I pled to a physical control violation and the judge sentenced, Jon was able to get the prosecutor to drop the ALS (license suspension due to refusing - in my case a urine test).
My case was especially tricky as it did not involve alcohol but rather legally ingested prescription medication along with drug charges for “trace amounts”, and paraphernalia. The case started in Stow courts but was sent to Summit County and then back to Stow. All of this during Covid. Through it all Jon and his team were on top of every hearing, document, due date, etc and communicated that to me.
And lastly I do want to mention how organized, considerate, and professional the rest of his team is. Hanne and Julie were a pleasure to work with and their support and communication was extremely helpful to navigating my case. Knowing that Jon has competent people assisting lends even more confidence in his ability to generate a positive outcome.
If your freedom and livelihood is at stake, it’s a mistake to go with anyone other than Jon Sinn and his team. He is the best lawyer in Northeast OH. I even heard Judge Hoover in Stow Court say exactly that. The other reviews on this site are true.
