Exclusive Law Firm. The Dominy Law Firm consists of one attorney and administrative assistants. When you hire the Dominy Law Firm, you know he will be the attorney appearing with you in court and working on your case behind the scenes; not a less experienced partner or associate. The firm limits the number of clients it represents, so we cannot represent every client who contacts the firm.  If the Dominy Law Firm does not accept your case, we may be able to help you arrange for another attorney to represent you, possibly with Shawn Dominy serving in an advisory capacity.

Personal Service. By limiting the number of new clients accepted, the Dominy Law Firm is able to work every case very thoroughly and give every client the attention they deserve. See what clients say. When there is a development in your case, you know about it. Every document the firm generates or receives, you get a copy of it. When you have questions, we answer them. We want you to be fully informed, and we want to explain everything to your satisfaction so you understand everything about your case. Shawn Dominy is down-to-earth and speaks in plain English (not lawyer jargon), but he is 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, the Dominy Law Firm is not for you. Our fees are on the high-end of the fee spectrum based on expertise, experience, and personal service. The firm charges flat fees, so you’ll know from the beginning of the case exactly how much the representation will cost. The firm offers a free initial case evaluation, but a retainer is required before representation begins. Payment is typically made by debit/credit card but can also be made by cash or check.

Modern Office Operation. The Dominy Law Firm is essentially paperless and uses comprehensive office management software to ensure the practice is operated efficiently and effectively. We communicate with clients regularly to ensure clients are informed, educated and empowered. Communication is primarily by email, except when an office meeting or phone conference makes more sense.

Convenient Office Location. The 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, Shawn Dominy is in court on a regular basis and therefore has good working relationships with prosecuting attorneys, judges, court staff, and other lawyers.

Communities Served. The Dominy Law Firm practices 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.
