Professional and a High Degree of Knowledge
Shawn Dominy is very professional and knows what he's doing. The communication was excellent as he and his staff explained the process every step of the way. Complete satisfaction!
-Anonymous, August, 2022
Bryan did a great job with my case from day one. He had an uphill challenge with my case due to being in an accident but he was fantastic and was able to get the charges reduced. He was honest with me throughout the process and was always available for my questions. Bottom line, I always felt like Bryan was fighting for me and had my best interest at heart. I can't think Bryan enough and would highly recommend him to anybody in an OVI situation.
-Gary, August, 2022
Clearly an Expert
Bryan was super easy to work with, and was always readily available. He is clearly an expert in the OVI field, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an OVI lawyer.
-Gavin, August, 2022
Shawn is absolutely amazing at what he does! He is always two steps ahead of the case and makes sure you stay up to date on everything going on. Anytime we tried to reach him, he emailed or text back as soon as he could and we were never left waiting. I highly recommend him if going through an OVI situation. He knows the ins and outs of everything and you are never left in the dark.
- Brian and Courtney, July, 2022
If you find yourself in need of a DUI/OVI attorney, you can trust in Shawn. I was charged with an 'OVI' and an 'OVI per se' and sought out a good attorney to help me through it. It was the first time I had ever been charged with something. Shawn walked me through every step of the way from the very first consultation. He is extremely knowledgable in his field and will answer your questions in a timely manner. With his scientific knowledge of breathalyzer tests, he was able to drop my 'OVI per se' charge. The 'OVI' charge was amended to a physical control, a much better outcome. The process is much less scary when you have Shawn on the case.

Great OVI Defense Attorney
Having never been charged with a criminal offense before, I was faced with a lot of uncertainty when I received my OVI charge. However, from the start, Bryan led me through the process through every step. In the end, Bryan made a real difference in my case and I would recommend him to anyone that is going through something similar.

Best Around, Class Act.
I had the misfortune of needing Mr. Dominy's counsel to help me in my OVI case. I was charged with a OVI per se, OVI impaired, speeding, marked lanes violation, and reckless driving, with a high urine alcohol levels, more than double the legal limit. I did not know what to expect, as I've never faced any kind of issues with the law. From the first contact Mr. Dominy has been nothing short of professional and thorough, from gathering the facts, the evidence, and putting the case together. He did an amazing job explaining to me, every step of the way and gave me timely advice to be ahead of the curve.
He sent me a copy of the book he wrote on OVI (Ohio DUI/OVI Guide) to get familiar with the articles, the penalties and to start defining what would be my best and worse case scenarios. He was straight forward, which I appreciated and laid the situation down for me to understand where I was headed.
Mr. Dominy's expertise in the area, helped to get the best outcome, by far. This outcome means, no points on my driving license, no increased insurance premiums and no damaging OVI convictions that could lead to loss of employment/income. This was better than the best case scenario I was hoping for.
I could not have come anywhere close to such an outcome, if it was not for Mr. Dominy and I cannot recommend him enough to anyone going through such a challenge. I do not wish on needing his services ever again, but should happen, I have his number on speed dial. lol Thanks Mr. Dominy!
Turned Out Great
Bryan was very thorough and professional. I appreciated all of the communication I received. He helped me explore my options. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
-Isaac, April, 2022
Best OVI Defense Lawyer
Facing the unknown of an OVI arrest, I contacted Bryan Hawkins for representation, and I'm grateful I did. Bryan led me through the court process, used his expertise to create a solid defense and made all the difference in my case. I would not hesitate to recommend Bryan Hawkins to anyone in the same situation.
-Seth, April, 2022
Best Legal Defense Money Can Buy
The best legal defense money can buy. Super understanding people and very knowledgeable. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose them. I will also be recommending them to friends and family if the time comes.
- B.W., December, 2021
Bad Situation Less Stressful
You made a bad situation less stressful, and I really appreciate that.
-B.S., December, 2021
Result Was Better Than Expected
Bryan was easy to work with and talk to, and our result was better than expected. The charges got dropped, and I didn't even receive probation. Overall, the experience was positive and productive.
-A.M., November, 2021
Very Knowledgeable About Everything
I had 0 problems working with Bryan. He really helped me and was very knowledgeable about everything. He was also fast and reassuring. 10/10.
-I.D., November, 2021
Outstanding from Start to Finish
Bryan was outstanding from start to finish and communicated clearly the entire time. Without his experience and expertise, my outcome would have likely been much worse. He made the process much more comfortable to navigate.
- S.V., October, 2021
Good Guy. Good Attorney.
Shawn represented me, in what is a very difficult county to navigate, Delaware County. He knew the people and was able to successfully negotiate terms that I could live with. He knew the process well, explained it to me and guided me through the quagmire to the end. Highly recommend Mr. Dominy.
-Anonymous, August, 2021
Made Me Feel At Ease
Bryan Made me feel at ease right away. I felt like I had the right guy in my corner. Made me feel like "we got this". You will be highly recommended if I know anyone who needs help. Thank you so much!
-Peter, July, 2021
Looking Out for My Little girl!
Brian did awesome job , my daughter suffered a head injury in a accident and the cops believed she was under the influence of drugs, which was far from the truth. Police charged her with OVI and Failure to control actually charged her twice for it in different jurisdictions! He was able to get case dropped to what she should of been charged with in the beginning! We were very happy with the outcome of a bad situation! He was passionate how he handled the case and was persistent with the courts! Kept me informed with all the information and court dates! Obviously took almost a year to get it all settled mostly because of the pandemic and court scheduling! Good sharp young man! Highly recommended him!
-Vince, April, 2021
Amazing Lawyer With Great Dedication
Choosing Mr. Dominy to represent me for my OVI case was the best decision I could of made. He was dedicated to my case and worked very hard to do the best he could for me. Throughout the entire process I felt reassured and confident in him. He is extremely personable and kind and I will be forever grateful.
-Anonymous, June, 2020
Extremely Professional, Knowledgeable, Respected
I made a big mistake. Bryan couldn't fix that, but he was able to make the charges that carried the stiffest penalty go away. I'm grateful. If you face an OVI charge, I highly recommend Bryan.
-Anonymous Client, June, 2020
Very Knowledgeable, Very Efficient, And Very Fair!
I contacted Bryan's law firm, (im体育在线直播, LLC) 3 days before my OVI court date, 2 of them being the weekend. Everyone at Dominy is great to work with. I cannot say enough about Bryan's service, knowledge, and professionalism. He made me feel very confident about his ability to get the best outcome possible, and he did exactly that. For my case, he was able to obtain a plea deal from the prosecution at the arraignment that completely dismissed my OVI! I walked away with a 4 point charge and a $50 fine. Bryan even offered to charge me less than the original agreed upon fee. He is an amazing attorney, I would hire him for any case!
-Jake, July, 2019
Very Well Known Throughout The Courts
After getting an OVI with a high breath test, I quickly reached out and contacted the Dominy law firm. I had never had a run in with the law and was very intimidated by what had happened that night and didn’t know how to take it. Bryan contacted me within a very short amount of time. Through the entire process he was not only very knowledgeable but also professional and easy to work. He is very well known throughout the Franklin County Courts. Between himself and paralegal Windy, they kept in touch throughout the whole process through email and phone. During a very stressful situation, he never allowed me to have false hope and showed me the reality of the situation I got myself into. He was also able to keep me at ease and updated on the situation. Every step of the way he explained everything in depth and ensured that I understood what was happening and that there were no questions. I was very fortunate to have his expertise on my charges, which he ultimately had my high test dismissed and my OVI reduced to a physical control. This allowed me to not only avoid points on my license but also gave me full driving priveledges back immediately. With my job, and the need for driving this was something that I was very fortunate to end up with. He was a very great individual to work with and definitely made this process as easy as it could be. I’m very glad that I reached out to him that morning. I don’t plan on needing his services again but if I do, or anyone else would need him, he would definitely be who I would reach out to.

I Will Only Use Your Law Firm
Bryan did a great job. I hope I never need his service again. However, if I do, I will only use your law firm.

OVI Third Offense
I was looking at a third OVI offense with refusal, as well as a speeding ticket, failure to signal and illegal lane change. This would have resulted in a minimum of 60 days in jail, forfeiture of my vehicle and no doubt, loss of employment. After quite a bit of research, I hired Mr. Dominy to represent me. Both Mr. Dominy and his paralegal Windy were both professional, courteous and prompt to answer any and all questions I had. Mr. Dominy was flexible with phone consultations and was even willing to call later than his normal business hours. Mr. Dominy is very knowledgeable and detail oriented. If there are any mistakes made by the arresting officer, he will find them. Mr. Dominy was able to get my charge reduced to a stipulated second offense with all other charges dismissed, no vehicle forfeiture, 2 year driving suspension with work privileges and only 10 days in a “private jail”. Without Mr. Dominy, I doubt any of that would be possible. I highly recommend Mr. Dominy for anyone who is in the situation I was in.
-Shawn, March, 2019
Would Hire Again!
My brother and I hired Brian through im体育在线直播 to represent our other brother after he was charged with his third DUI within 10 years. We were extremely surprised and thankful with the favorable outcome of the case given the situation and owe Brian a great deal for making that possible. Specifically, the following three things about Brian set him apart from many others that we feel make him very successful:
We appreciated Brian’s way of managing our expectations by continuously providing updates and presenting realistic outcomes given all components of the case. He was able to effectively communicate the options that were on the table and provided great counsel on each given his experience with others in similar situations. Not only would we hire Brian again, we would recommend him to our family, friends, and others that may be in this unfortunate situation.
-Anonymous, February, 2019
100% Recommend Shawn
My case was really difficult because I did the breath test and there was nothing wrong with it. The prosecutor was a really pain in the butt, and didn't want to make a plea deal at all. By the end of the case, my OVI charges were dropped and I had just a marked lanes violation which is basically the same as a speeding ticket. Shawn really knows what he's talking about. I'm so glad I chose him. Definitely wouldn't bother looking else where. Hire him.
-R.P., February, 2019
I recently went through a tough time in life and got into some trouble with the law. I connected with Bryan through the im体育在线直播. Bryan was extremely knowledgeable about the DUI laws in Ohio, and extremely easy to stay connected to. Which was huge for me while navigating the legal system. I was given the best outcome for my case! Thank you Bryan!
-Jodi B., January, 2019
Bryan Hawkins was a great lawyer throughout a stressful time. Got my case dismissed and was always available to talk and communicate about the case. Definitely recommended!
-Anonymous, January, 2019
Got The OVI Charge Dropped
During a very stressful time with my son related to an OVI (+ host of other charges), Shawn was able to provide a level of calmness during the entire process. His review of evidence was thorough and provided additional details that I missed when reviewing. He didn’t over promise anything and was very objective in interpreting the evidence and providing feedback to my wife and me. Shawn ultimately got the OVI charge dropped. He was well prepared and his top team kept us informed at all times.
-Client's Father, November, 2018
He Would Be My First Call
Shawn was great throughout the entire process. I enjoyed his calm demeanor and ability to thoroughly explain things. If I ever needed a lawyer again, he would be my first call.
-B.R., September, 2018
Bryan Is Superb!
I hired Bryan for my OMVI case and he did a superb job in representing me. He took all the time I needed to explain my case to me. He worked with the prosecutor to get my charges reduced and a favorable outcome was achieved. I hope never to need him again, but would not hesitate for a moment if I did.
-Al, September, 2018
Excellent Lawyer And Staff, Highly Recommend!
From the first call to the final disposition in my case, the im体育在线直播 was truly amazing. Shawn listened intently, explained the process, what to expect, possible outcomes, etc... like a true professional. I was facing some possible hard sanctions as a result of a 3rd OVI and Shawn made me feel at ease with the entire process. He worked relentlessly with the prosecutor and was able to negotiate a plea bargain that truly resulted in the most positive outcome I could expect from the situation.
Shawn and his staff, most notably Windy, kept me informed on all aspects of the case and expectations every step of the way. I highly recommend Shawn Dominy as your go-to lawyer for any OVI-related offense.
-Gary, August, 2018
Great OVI Attorney
Excellent, knowledgeable. Consulted Bryan on a legal matter. He gave me great advice. I highly recommend him.
-Anoymous, August, 2018
Exceptional Legal Representation
Had I not hired Shawn Dominy to represent me, my legal fate would have been severe. I wholly endorse his representation to any one faced with a DUI or OVI. Be assured, that without his help, going into court would be the equivalent of diving into shark infested waters without protection. Mr. Dominy is bright, personable, and a credit to his profession. He takes his practice seriously and he places his clients interests above all.
-David, July, 2018
Strong Attention To Detail & Profound Knowledge Of The Law, OVI-Related Charges & The Legal Process
Shawn recently represented me for a case which resulted in an arrest for OVI, open container & a traffic signal indication and my license was revoked immediately. I cooperated at the scene for all 3 field sobriety tests. Later, I refused the breathalyzer test at the station. Having had a few drinks earlier, I personally felt that I didn’t want to potentially arm the prosecution with any additional recorded evidence to use against me.
Shawn Dominy was highly recommended from a lawyer friend as being “The Best” in his field. Therefore, I didn’t waste time talking to other lawyers or price shopping, but instead retained Shawn pretty quickly. He called me back within a half hour of my initial inquiry, which caught me off-gaurd, as I didn’t expect that. From the start, I was impressed by his knowledge of the law, his attention to detail, his thoroughness in examining the details of the case & his regular consistent communication (through emails, phone calls & in person) in terms that I could understand. He calmed my worries a bit because he was not intimidating when I asked questions or needed further clarification. He always called within minutes of our scheduled conference calls.
Mr Dominy was very quick to file any & all potential paperwork, above and beyond what he “might” need as the case unfolded. He also made sure I was kept up to date on the status of what was happening behind the scenes. Luckily, when I was finally seen in court 3 weeks out from my offense—which was not within 5 days of the offense per the law—his due diligence in filing allowed for a Stay of the Administrative License Suspense to be granted. His quick filing of paperwork & his attention to using “details in the law” to his advantage, was the ONLY reason my license was reinstated that day. Surpring to me still, this means I got my license back 3 wks after my initial offense! This also meant I was able to drive for an additional 2 1/2 months while my case was still pending. I would not have been able to legally drive had Shawn not filed a motion to terminate the ALS, which he did immediately after I retained him. This definitely improved morale & helped me and my family better function & tackle what needed done everyday in a less stressful way.
My case just ended & all the original charges were dropped. A plea was offered for Physical Control, which is a no point, non-moving violation. In accepting that plea, I was given less than all the mandatory, minimum sentences with the original charges. My sentence included 6 months driving suspension which was backdated to the time of the offense (instead of 12 months minimum), 6 months non-reporting probabtion (instead of a minimum of a year) and 3 day alcohol education course was offered (in place of 3 days mandatory jail time). Personally, this seemed like a “best case scenario” & was not something I was sure could happen without a trial. Shawn allowed me to make my own decisions, based on what was offered & didn’t try to influence my decisions. When weighing all the options though, I sincerely believed and agreed with Mr. Dominy that we could probably win a trial & be found “not guilty”. However, for me, it was important to plead guilty to the reduced charges that were offered & accept whatever sentence the judge ordered .....so I could finally move on and put this all behind me sooner.
I haven’t had time to do my research yet, so I’m not sure what the Physical Control charge will look like with my insurance company or the BMV. However, I’m fairly certain the zero points will look way better in comparison to that of an OVI & the related charges. Through all this, I learned a lot about the legal process. I hope to never have to use Shawn Dominy as a defense lawyer in the future personally, but I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him to others who find themselves in a similar predicament. He’s good & knows his stuff.
-Anonymous Client, July, 2018
Shawn's a great attorney and a really good guy. He helped me with my case and did everything in a timely fashion and was well worth the money. My family is forever grateful.

He Convinced The Judge In My Case To Dismiss All Evidence
Shawn took a great amount of time with me to explain certain important aspects of my case, more than any other lawyer I have dealt with. Shawn is extremely smart and fought hard on my case. He proved all necessary points and convinced the judge in my case to dismiss all evidence, which I thought would never happen. He got all my major charges dismissed in my OVI case, which saved my career. I did a lot of research on lawyers and I would recommend him over any lawyer in Ohio.
-L.H., April, 2018
Also A Good And Caring Man
Shawn is a very knowledgeable and competent attorney. He is also a good and caring man. He managed my case with an expertise that left me surprised and in awe. He won every argument with the judge and prosecutor, quoting laws from memory and being accurate every time. He really did his homework on the case and headed off the prosecution at every angle. He is very highly recommended in my book!
