Firm Overview

Criminal Defense & DUI / OVI Defense In Columbus & Central Ohio


Dominy Law Firm.  The Dominy Law Firm is focused on providing ‘personal service when results matter’ for clients charged with criminal offenses, vehicular homicide / vehicular assault, and DUI / OVI in Columbus, Ohio and the central Ohio area. 

Experienced Attorney. I am attorney Shawn R. Dominy, and I have been practicing criminal defense and DUI / OVI defense since 1997.  I do not practice other types of law; I practice exclusively in the areas of DUI/OVI defense and criminal defense.  My experience includes thousands of cases, including dozens of suppression hearings and jury trials, in Columbus, Ohio and courts throughout central Ohio. For more information about me, please see my attorney profile. You may also want to review my past case results.

Exclusive Law Firm. My firm consists of one attorney and administrative assistants. I believe that operating a criminal defense practice is a personal service business.  When you hire me, you know I will be the attorney appearing with you in court and working on your case behind the scenes, not a less experienced partner or associate.  I limit the number of cases I accept; typically one case per week.  As I cannot represent every client who contacts me, I do have attorneys who work with my firm, and I can help you arrange for one of those attorneys to represent you with me serving in an advisory capacity.

Personal Service.  By limiting the number of cases I accept, I am able to work every case very thoroughly and give every client the attention they deserve.  See what clients say.  I take on an average of one new client per week, and I handle every client's case personally.  When there is a development in your case, you and I communicate about it.  Every document I generate or receive, you get a copy of it.  When you have questions, I answer them.  I want you to be fully informed, and I want to explain everything to your satisfaction so you understand everything about your case.  I’m down-to-earth and I speak in plain English (not lawyer jargon), but I am also professional and discreet. 

Fees That Are High But Reasonable. If you are looking for an inexpensive lawyer to herd you through the court process for a quick guilty plea, I am not the attorney for you. My fees are on the high-end of the fee spectrum based on my expertise, experience, and personal service. I charge flat fees, so you’ll know from the beginning of the case exactly how much my representation will cost. I offer a free initial case evaluation, but a retainer is required before my representation begins. My office accepts cash, checks and credit cards.  To arrange for an initial phone consultation at no cost, contact me.

Modern Office Operation. My practice is essentially paperless, and I use comprehensive office management software to ensure the practice is operated efficiently and effectively.  I communicate with my clients regularly, primarily by email, except when an office meeting or phone conference makes more sense. 

Convenient Office Location. My office is conveniently located at the intersection of Interstate 71 and Polaris Parkway, just north of Interstate 270.  It’s easy to find (the Mettler Toledo building), and parking is simple because it has its own parking lot with guest spaces near the front door.  Although the office has a suburban location, I am in court on a regular basis and therefore have good working relationships with prosecuting attorneys, judges, court staff, and other lawyers.

Courts In Which I Practice.  I practice DUI/OVI defense in courts throughout central Ohio, including the following counties:  Franklin County, Delaware County, Fairfield County, Knox County, Madison County, Marion County, Morrow County, Pickaway County, and Union County.

Consultation.  If you think we are a good fit and would like to discuss your DUI/OVI or criminal case, EMAIL ME or call me at 614-717-1177 to arrange an initial consultation.
