I Would Highly Recommend Shawn
First contacting Shawn was a little scary for me as I was already nervous about my whole situation. After leaving a voicemail I received a call within minutes explaining what I needed to do and how he could help me out. I was given all the information I needed (fees, steps to proceed with, etc). The email payments were extremely helpful to me and were very fast. I loved the fact that he was truthful to meeting times and dates. I was facing a second DUI charge with a high test and failure to control. We were able to get the high test and failure to control thrown out which helped my case a lot. I still had to plead guilty to the charge of OVI. I would highly recommend Shawn to anyone facing one of these charges as he was very diligent with the judges and prosecutors. Thank you Shawn for all your help!!
-Michael, November, 2017
Shawn is a wonderful person and an elite attorney. Being represented by him gives you complete peace of mind knowing you are in good hands, with someone very well educated and rehearsed in the legal process. Not only is he going to get you the best legal outcome, he is very honest, understanding, supportive, flexible, etc. I know a lot of Lawyers in the Columbus area, but Shawn is amongst the best you can work with, hands down.
-M.A., September, 2017
Knowledgeable, Attentive, & Professional
Shawn was calm and focused from the first meeting, which was a huge relief in a difficult situation. Throughout the court process, I received detailed updates and Shawn always had a helpful answer to my questions. The charges ended up getting reduced and I was ecstatic to not have an OVI conviction. I'd recommend Shawn to anyone--he really pays attention to the details and fights for your best interes
-Jen, September, 2017
Best Possible Outcome
I was able to hire Shawn and basically turn off my brain and let him deal with everything and everyone. He made it very easy, and I got the best possible outcome.
-Anonymous, September, 2017
Shawn really pays attention to the details. He knows how to use the law to your advantage. Excellent attorney!!
-Seth, June, 2017
You Seemed To Honestly Care
I sincerely appreciate your knowledge, honesty, and openness. You seemed to honestly care about me, the outcome, and my comfort through the process. I thank you for your help through a difficult process. I would definitely recommend you to friends and family.

Made Me Feel More Comfortable
You were very helpful to me. You made me much more comfortable about going to court. Thank you so much.
-Haley, June, 2017
An Amazing Attorney
I am certain that hiring Attorney Dominy is the only reason I received a favorable outcome during one of the hardest experiences of my life. Attorney Dominy took time to explain - in exquisite detail - what I was facing and all potential outcomes. His patience and knowledge of the law proved to be exactly what was needed. I am eternally grateful.
-Shanda, April, 2017
I was quite pleased with all that Shawn did for me! There were a few times that I was discouraged, and his calm demeanor and responses allayed that feeling.
-Nancy, January, 2017
Great Attorney For A Difficult Time
I was charged with my 4th OMVI and hired Mr. Dominy to represent me. While this was a very scary process for me to go through Mr. Dominy made me feel calm throughout the process. There was even a random Saturday he took time to speak with me on the phone because I was feeling anxious. I felt like he genuinely cared and even after everything was resolved he walked with me to pay the fine and other items I had to. I feel like he went the extra mile and would highly recommend him. I also had more than a favorable outcome with my circumstances and situation. I do not believe any other attorney would have been able to help me as much as Mr. Dominy did.
- Eric, December, 2016
Shawn is by far the best attorney I've ever met. He is extremely focused and committed to his clientele. Shawn is always accessible and willing to go the extra mile to satisfy his clients. There are no words to describe the peace of mind he brings to a very difficult system to navigate.

Blessed To Have Mr. Dominy Represent Me In Court
I am so thankful that friend of mine had recommended that I use Mr. Dominy to represent me in court. Mr. Dominy and his paralegal are the best team that I could ever hope for.
Mr. Dominy and his paralegal gave me immediate updates on my case, and it seemed that he has a professional system in place that enables his clients to feel the minimum stress that the court process can sometimes way on individuals. I really can't say enough good about Mr. Dominy and his staff.
- Chris, September, 2016
A True Subject Matter Expert
Shawn Dominy quickly displayed his expertise in defending OVI cases at a level that made me immediately comfortable in my decision to hire him. He does an impeccable job of setting the proper expectations throughout the judicial process and is open and honest in regard to the probable outcome. Where Mr. Dominy stands out is in the courthouse. I watched as other attorneys talked their clients into plea deals while Shawn encouraged fighting for the best outcome even if it meant going to trial. I strongly recommend hiring Mr. Dominy if you find yourself charged with OVI or any related offenses.
- K.G., August, 2016
Shawn was awesome, very professional, and just a great guy to talk to. He viewed every aspect of my case and found the small details that got my OVI/DUI dismissed!
- A Consumer, July, 2015
I was facing several charges as a result of an OVI arrest. Having never been involved with type of problem, I put myself in a very uncomfortable situation. Shawn was excellent at helping me understand the process and possible outcomes. He was an advocate for me and managed the case to get the best possible outcome. He was successful in working with the prosecution to dismiss all the charges with the exception of the OVI charge. I was very pleased with this result and relieved to hear I received the minimum sentencing. I would recommend Shawn to anyone facing an OVI charge.
-Mark, May, 2016
I Would Definitely Refer You To Others
Shawn, you were great! Your demeanor and confidence really took away a lot of my anxiety. Your knowledge of the law and the way you move within the court system is amazing. Tahnks so much for all that you did. I would definitely refer you to others. Best of luck to you.
-Gary, May, 2016
Professional - Very Satisfied
Shawn was very professional and thorough and explained everything every step of the way. He was always in contact and returned every call made to him. Worth every penny.
-John, April, 2016
Shawn successfully represented my son in a case that was reduced to a lesser charge with no probation. He understood the court process and executed his plan as drawn up. Although lawyers can be expensive, we agreed to his fee structure upfront and achieved the desired result. I would definitely retain Shawn again as needed.
-B.B., March, 2016
Impeccable Service--Top Notch
I contacted Mr. Dominy after exhausting other options in DUI lawyer referrals. I'm so glad I found him. In a situation of seeming despair, Mr. Dominy did his very best to thoroughly research my DUI case and obtain all evidence. He utilized his knowledge, expertise and familiarity with the court system where my case was held to obtain the best result possible. I was being faced with 3 misdemeanor level 1 charges (OVI Impairment, OVI over .17 and Fleeing) which could have amounted in jail time, hefty fines and lengthy license suspensions. As a working mother, this would have destroyed me.
Mr. Dominy was able to get 2 of those charges dropped, as well as my initial speeding ticket. I made a bad decision to operate my vehicle under the influence, and I feel the end result was very fair. I'm so appreciative of his promptness and professionalism to make a very scary situation better for me and my family. I would highly recommend his services.
-Sasha, February, 2016
Shawn Is Phenomenal!!!!!
After recently being charged with an OVI....now, what to do? As you ask yourself. So, I began my search and found Mr. Dominy. He was brilliant. Very attentive, precise and informative towards all actions on me and my case. I can not thank him enough for getting the OVI charge reduced. He did everything possible to make that happen. I appreciate everything that he worked hard to do for me.
-Kelly, December, 2015
The Man Works Magic
I was looking at a Physical control OVI charge. License suspension, 3 day class, all that. Shawn got it reduced to persistent disorderly conduct. I paid a fine, saw a counselor once and that was that. Even the clerk at the court was shocked to see my charge reduced. The man works magic. I had consulted with 6+ lawyers before I chose Shawn. Yes, his fees are on the higher end of the spectrum, but it was absolutely worth it. I don't know if another lawyer would have been able to do this. I am incredibly thankful I chose Shawn as my lawyer. He was also always available - If I called, he would call me back the same day. Many lawyers are not so responsive.
-Y.E., August, 2015
Great first experience with a lawyer!
Shawn has a very extensive knowledge of the law. He was able to look over my case and see the facts that got the prosecutor to drop the case for my OVI!
-Chuck, July, 2015
Very knowledgeable and kept me informed at all times. My ovi charge was reduced and he did everything he could to make it happen. He really looks out for you and tries to provide the best possible outcome . If he found something new he'd let me know right away. I appreciate everything you've done for me. Thank you.
-Kyle, June, 2015
I Would Recommend Mr. Dominy Highly
My case was considered a criminal case. I found Mr. Dominy to be non-judgmental, attentive and very knowledgeable. He walked me through all the steps in my case and the subsequent trial and sentencing. I would recommend Mr, Dominy highly and I hope that anyone who needs a good and fair lawyer will find him. I will always recommend him.
-Cydney, April, 2015
I Cannot Thank You Enough
Extremely great job. Everything worked out perfectly as planned. I cannot thank you enough! You really helped me out and made this process easy.
-A.M., April, 2015
Don't Call Another Attorney: Shawn Is The Best
I was charged with an OVI recently and was innocent of the charge (I'm sure thats what everyone says right?). After 6 months, my case was dismissed and I "won". He fought for me every step of the way. His office was ALWAYS in contact with me throughout the entire process. He was always available for any questions or concerns. He was relentless in filing requests for evidence from the prosecution. His repeated and timely actions finally led to the dismissal of the case because the prosecution was unable to provide the evidence needed to continue the case. During the case, I never felt that he should be doing more to represent me. If you are considering hiring an attorney to represent you, call him ASAP. He will listen to your case and give you an honest assessment your situation.
-T.O., February, 2015
Very Satisfied; Highly Recommend
I am very grateful that I chose Shawn Dominy to represent me in my OVI case. Apart from a few minor traffic violations, I had never run into trouble with the law before this past summer. I knew that I wanted a good lawyer to help reduce my charge as much as possible, but had no idea where to turn. I went to Shawn's website after getting a recommendation from a friend and decided that this was the best person to represent me. Although Shawn is not the cheapest lawyer in the area, he has years of experience and knowledge specifically in the area of OVIs, and thus knows the laws pertaining to these cases better than anyone else. I figured that I was out a ton of money either way - I might as well spend a little more to get the best OVI specialist in the area and the best possible outcome to my case.
I am very pleased with Shawn and would absolutely recommend him to others. After expressing concerns about the effects this charge would have on my career and my future (I know several individuals who have lost their jobs because of OVI charges), Shawn did everything possible to help reduce the charge and make sure it would not show up on future background checks. In addition to reducing my DUI charge to reckless operation and reducing my fine and license suspension, Shawn treated me with dignity and respect throughout the entire process. He constantly kept me informed of updates to the case, and allowed me to make my own decisions with his counsel. He was very supportive and made me feel much more comfortable during this very stressful time. I am very pleased with the results of my case and highly recommend Shawn to anyone else in need of representation for an OVI case.
-A Client, January, 2015
Shawn got my wife's OVI charge reduced drastically and more importantly kept my wife out of jail. My wife would be in much worse shape today had he not had the knowledge and understanding of our specific situation. He appeared multiple times and saved us thousands of dollars. GREAT lawyer.
- S.L., December, 2014
Took The Stress Out Of My DUI Case
Having Shawn for my lawyer took the stress out of my DUI case. He has a lot of experience and knowledge in this area. We appreciated his confident, calming demeanor. It doesn't take long to see that he is a nice, good person.
- M.B., December, 2014
I Couldn't Ask For A Better Outcome
I can't begin to thank you enough for your help representing me in this court case. I couldn't ask for a better outcome and I'm so glad my innocence was proven true. I couldn't have done it without you. You were by my side from the beginning to the end and that will never be forgotten.
- R.G., November, 2014
He Calmed All Of My Fears And Anxiety
Shawn did more than just represent me in court. He calmed all of my fears and anxiety I was having. Shawn is not only an amazing lawyer but he was an amazing supporter. Shawn didn't just act as my lawyer, he took on a role as my friend when I needed one the most. Thank you Shawn.
- Melissa, November, 2014
I Was Treated As An Individual Not Just A Case
I can with out hesitation highly recommend Mr. Shawn Dominy. Mr. Dominy treated my legal matter in a professional and caring manner. Being worried and upset, he made sure I knew exactly what was going on with my case and what I needed to do to prepare for the hearing. I was treated as a individual not just a case, during this extremely difficult time. Mr. Dominy's handwork, friendliness and communication makes for a fantastic lawyer to have by your side. Thanks so much!
- A Client, November, 2014
From Scary To Simple
I came to Shawn Dominy with a tough DUI situation. There were quite a few details of my case that made me tough to defend and were working against me with my case. After speaking to quite a few different Central Ohio DUI Attorneys the day after my arrest, I had the best feeling about what Mr. Dominy had to say. From the beginning, he was very professional, transparent, and did not over promise. He stuck to the facts and was very informed in regards to the law. As this was my first offense and included a high charge, I was going into this situation with very little knowledge and experience. Mr. Dominy kept me informed on the law and was very proactive with each aspect of my case. He communicated with me via email and phone and was extremely efficient. When I had questions, no matter how minor or ignorant, Mr. Dominy treated each response with care, professional demeanor, and urgency. Mr. Dominy walked me through each step of the process with ease and without judgment. Ultimately, I was able to get my high charge reduced and walk away with reasonable consequences for my mistake. Even upon the conclusion of my settlement, Mr. Dominy continued to provide additional explanation and follow ups for what needed to be done. I would highly recommend Shawn Dominy to anyone facing a DUI charge in Central Ohio. His knowledge, push for action, ease in communication, and professional demeanor made a daunting experience much less intimidating.
- Sara, October, 2014
Very Pleased With The Outcome
Shawn is the most knowledgeable, courteous, and educated attorney I know. Both times he has represented me, I have been very pleased with the outcome.
- A.N., July, 2014
I'm Glad You Were My Lawyer
Thank you so much! I found you under 'Best DUI Lawyers', and you were the number one. I'm glad you were my lawyer, and I really appreciate you. I'll recommend you to everybody, you are the best! God bless you!
- E.V., June, 2014
You Had A Solid Game Plan From The Start
Very calming. Made me feel "in the know" about all the details, even down to the personalities of the judges. Granted, we really lucked out with the loss of the cruiser video, but you had a solid game plan from the start. Thank you.
- Amy, April, 2014
Extremely Helpful During A Tough Time
You were extremely helpful during a tough time in my life and helped me worry less because you let me know step by step what was happening. Windy was also awesome because she responded so quickly to all emails. I hope I do not find myself in need of your services again, but if I do, I couldn't think of anyone better to represent me. If I have any family or friends who find themselves in a similar situation to me, I will highly recommend you. That you for all of your help.
- A.B., April, 2014
He Was Able To Have My Charge Of DUI Lowered
When I found myself in need of representation, I did not know where to go so I called around to several different lawyers. After speaking with numerous lawyers the conversation I had with Mr. Dominy stuck out the most to me because he was not only extremely knowledgeable and professional, but he was also relatable. During a very stressful and scary time in my life Mr. Dominy was able to provide me peace of mind. Throughout the process he kept me well informed and quickly responded to all of my questions. I especially liked that we were able to do the majority of our communication thru email because it was very convenient. Mr. Dominy was able to have my charge of OVI lowered even with my participation in some field sobriety tests. I would highly recommend Mr. Dominy to anyone I know in a similar situation.
- Ashley, March, 2014
Willing To Take The Time On Each Case For The Best Possible Outcome
Shawn was very knowledgeable regarding the law, was there and made me feel comfortable in every step of the process. He got my case dismissed and walked to through the expungement process. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a hands-on, knowledgeable lawyer that is willing to take the time on each case for the best possible outcome.
- Sarah, February, 2014
Overall A Great Experience
I first researched lawyers and came across Shawn Dominy. I read his website and felt comfortable. I contacted Shawn immediately. After I was charged and summoned to court, I met with Shawn to discuss my options. Shawn was very informative regarding my case. He was always available to answer questions or concerns of mine and put me at ease with the situation at hand. Regarding my case, we contacted a lot through email and Shawn responded in a timely and professional manner. He always makes himself available to answer or talk about anything. Once we decided the route to take for my case, Shawn kept me very informed with the court processes and documents that needed to be signed etc. Fortunately, for my case, the process was simple as this was my first criminal charge and Shawn sought diversion for my case. I was awarded diversion and my case was dismissed. Following the dismissal Shawn walked me down to the courthouse to help me file expungement for my case free of charge and walked me through the process. I would recommend Shawn Dominy, as he took my case seriously, was informative and always there to guide you through the process and reach the best possible outcome for your case. Overall a great experience with Shawn and would refer him to any others down the road if needed.
- S.K., December, 2013
Absolutely great representation. I will recommend you any time I have a chance.
- J.S., December, 2013
I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. Thank you very much for your representation.
- E.S., November, 2013
I highly recommend Shawn, who recently represented me for the charge of OVI and a Marked Lanes violation. I had a very favorable outcome including the dismissal of the OVI charge and a termination of the one-year Administrative License Suspension. Shawn was knowledgeable, respectful, and most importantly non-judgmental through the entire process. Facing the OVI charge was very scary. Shawn put me at ease with his consistent communication and willingness to fully explore all options available to me. I am confident Shawn is the best at what he does!
- Tanya, September, 2013
I Knew You Were Giving Your All
It was clear from our first phone conference that I’d made the right decision hiring you to represent me. Very friendly, accommodating, and even smarter when it came to OVI laws. The most nerve-wracking months of my life somehow seemed less so because I knew you were giving your all for my outcome to be positive which of course it was. In a perfect world I would’ve never needed your help, but I’m glad I did in a way. Most of all, I appreciated the personal relationship you form with your clients. On a ‘scale of 1 to 10’, you get a 10+. Thanks Shawn!
- L.S., September, 2013
I Would Highly Recommend Mr. Dominy
Mr Dominy is very knowledgeable and kept me from spending jail time by having the documents to show it was not legal in my case. He worked very hard to reduce my charges and I thank him for that.
- Juvenile client, September, 2013
Nothing Less Than Satisfied
It has been a pleasure working with you! We have been nothing less than satisfied with all that you’ve done.
- E.S., August, 2013
The Most Highly Recommended Attorney In Columbus!
Shawn represented me in an OVI case over a year ago and he provided me with great information as to what my options were in regards to the case and worked diligently to ensure that all the facts were accurately represented. Because of his relentless determination, the pending charges of my case was reduced to physical control which is the best outcome that you could hope for given the circumstances. I highly recommend Shawn to anyone that is in a similar situation.
- Leslie, August, 2013
My first and only time in court was for underage and ovi. Shawn was very informative and helped me understand everything that was going on with our court appearances. He was knowledgeable about everything he did and left me at ease that my case my being taken care of. He ended up getting my ovi down to reckless op and 6 month probation for the underage but no criminal record for underage, which was such a relief. Have recommended him to friends who have also gotten an ovi.
- Ana, August, 2013
Great job! No Issues. Thanks again.
- K.M., July, 2013

Could Not Have Asked For A Better Attorney
