I would recommend this lawyer to anyone facing serious charges but I want everyone to know the truth about this guy. They do have a reputable name in Dayton for being aggressive defense lawyers. I came to his office because I had a legal problem I wanted taken care of. It was a major felony and I had good chance to get this off my record. He told me this would cost a lot of money, he was charging me more than 2 times the amount for lawyers in the area. He bragged about my case saying "Oh my god, are you serious, they witheld evidence against you??? WOW!" He said "I'm calling in my assistants" So he called in 2 assistants to make it seem like you have something so amazing and he said "I'm contacting a detective, we're going to get this off your record" So he wanted me to contract another person, a private detective, which was totally unecessary. Obviously he just wanted to put some of his people to work and give them a job. So I whipped out my credit card, and he maxed it out to the full amount and they came back and said "We can put most of the payment on this credit card, do you have another one?" I said Yes, and he wanted to max that out as well. It came back saying they couldn't charge any more to that card, and he asked me if I could write a check and go into bankruptcy....he didn't have a care in the world! I told him I can't risk going into bankruptcy, and I can't take this risk, and he was like "Well it's going to cost you if you want this taken care of" I left his office in shame, I wanted him on my case.
DO NOT FALL FOR THIS TRAP, ANY LAWYER WILL BRAG AND RAVE ABOUT SOMETHING TO GET YOUR BUSINESS EVEN IF THEY KNOW YOU HAVE NOTHING, THEY WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY AND LOSE YOUR CASE.

He was recommended by a family friend that had read about him on several occasions in the local newspaper. I had consulted with 3 other attorneys and JP Rion was my last stop. The only other attorney I considered using quoted me $15 - $20K to handle the case with a $10K retainer. I mentioned to him I was going to speak with JP Rion before making my final decision and he had nothing but good things to say about JP Rion and said I couldn't go wrong either way.
At my initial consultation JP Rion listened to my story and said he though he could get it thrown out before a trial was needed. I gave him $4,500 and everything I could come up with to help exonerate myself. After we received discovery from the prosecution we got together to review the evidence and fill the gaps. When we got to the pretrial he did his thing and the charges were dismissed. I never even stepped foot into the courtroom.
The other reviewer stated her husband was charged $4,500 up front and when it was time to go to trial he demanded another $3,000. I was told this by JP Rion up front in my initial consultation. Within a week of paying the $4,500 I received a letter in the mail explaining what the $4,5000 did and did not cover. It also reiterated the additional $3,000 due should we need to go to trial. I had to sign this letter and return it. I would assume this is S.O.P. so I'm not sure why she was surprised.
