    I had very old charges from a disasterous divorce many years ago which has plagued me personally and professionally for nearly two decades. I contacted Mr. Owen and his assistant Mr. Whiteside for assistance with the situation and they were both fantastic. They were both incredibly respectful, honest and persistent in their efforts to successfully resolve the case for me. My greatest thanks go to both Mr. Owen and Mr. Whiteside for their work on my behalf. Now that the case has been dismissed I can finally put this horrible issue behind me and move on.

    Koenig and Owen went above and beyond with my legal needs. They were professional, well priced, and ensured to keep me in the loop every step of the way.

    I don't usually do reviews however this was an exceptional experience when it come to legal representation so I thought I'd share.I've needed a lawyer once or twice in the past and no matter how much I pay them I'm always a little disappointed this experience was completely different!Bottom line they were smart they had an exceptional plan and within a month we saw it executed to perfection the result CASE DISMISSED!Charles and James became Chuck and Jim they're not cheap and I'm not rich, but freedom is priceless and after this case I wouldn't trust mine to anyone else!

    Working in a professional industry, reputation can mean everything. To have your own expectations exceeded is rare. With each barrier that arose, Jim Owen has gone above and beyond. It has been a relief to have someone that is not only passionate about personal rights, but who cares about the client. I have already recommended Mr. Owen to several of my colleagues, including an attorney who practices in a different specialty. Who you hire is crucial. Make your choice count!

    Attorney Jim Owen took my case in September of 2019. I had two charges against me for defending my property. Mr. Owen took the reigns of this case and professionally took care of the details and was great counseling me throughout the process. In October my case was dismissed and my records are soon to be expunged. Can't thank the team enough for taking are of this stressful situation. Never hesitate hiring Jim Owen!

    My name is Quander, I was being charged with and F1 Agg trafficking(3-11 mandatory)and the jury was giving the option of an lesser charge of F2 (2-8 mandatory). In the town of NEWARK OH, people never win jury trials , they get max and life goes on. Well Nov 12th a day after my sons 9th birthday, Mr. Owen and his team went in that gauntlet and came out with an NOT GUILTY VERDICT ON BOTH COUNTS . They gave my son a Bday gift that he will remember a lifetime. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MR OWEN AND HIS TEAM FOR ANY AND ALL LEGAL ISSUES.

    I want to thank Jim Owen and his paralegal Alison on helping my husband. They went above and beyond to do everything to make sure my husband was treated fairly. When he was sentenced from a 14 year old case, they worked very hard to make sure that his medical needs would be met and that the facility would be able to accommodate him. If it was not for Jim my husband whom is a hemi palegic would be doing 15+ years. He worked diligently to make sure that he was taking care of. I would recommend him to ANYONE that needs legal advice or help. Thanks Jim and Allison for EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This has been by far the best experience that I have ever had dealing with a law firm, they were honest and forthright with me. They gave me all the information I needed to make an informed decision. The information that they gave was to help me and not to make them more money. I truly appreciate the help that they gave me and I know who I would recommend in the future.

    Top attorney in the state of Ohio. When I walked into the court room I knew my money was well spent. I can't thank this man and Todd enough. I google searched who the best lawyers were, an they were #1. Well worth every penny spent. Wonderful communication. Last year at this time I was locked up, these men got me set free. I was convicted of a horrible crime, kidnapping...... I was facing 18 years..these men made it go away. 30 days of hell I spent in the work house until Todd and Jim got involved. If you want to be free, hire this man and Todd. They're the best of the best. I can't thank you enough Jim. Have a wonderful July 4th. These men are superior! I could go on and on all night about how thankful I am for these gentlemen right here. Thanks a lot! I know exactly who I'm referring anyone who has a criminal conviction to.

    I worked with Eric Dysert and I would not have wanted anyone else representing me. He acted with professionalism and was able to help me get out of a DUI. The best part about Eric was his communication, I was able to get a hold of him anytime and he always responded promptly and was willing to help. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Eric Dysert should you ever need representation!

    Eric Dysert recently represented me in a case and I would recommend him to others without hesitation. He is very prompt with responding, answers my questions thoroughly and helped me to receive the outcome I was hoping for with my case. He helped decreased the stress that associates with going to court which is beneficial to anyone new to the Judicial System. If I was ever to need any legal advice again in the future, he will be the one I'd go to.

    Attorney Eric Dysert represented me in both misdemeanor/OVI and felony cases, and I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. He was professional, accommodating, readily available, and creative and stalwart in my defense. He drove several hours to the north end of Ohio several times without hesitation or complaint to represent me, and made the absolute best out of my situation. He continues to offer me advice through the end stages of my situation, and I would consider him a friend.**At the end of everything, I walked away with NO DUI, NO FELONY, and a spotless criminal record; absolutely could not ask for a better outcome for a terrible situation.**Everyone else at Koenig & Long were very kind to me, and I honestly can't come up with a single complaint. I would absolutely recommend Eric to anyone in a similar situation, he will make sure you get what you paid for!Thank you Eric!!!

    Todd Long provided exceptional care and criminal defense for my son. He positively acted on everything that he promised us and treated him as if he were family. My son was charged with several felonies and DUI charges which could have resulted in prison time, however, the multiple felonies were dismissed and he only served three months of probation time. I would highly recommend this attorney to anyone! Thank you Todd for the outstanding service and excellent results.

    I was accused of fraud and James D. Owen at the Koenig & Long LLC, was very helpful and very attentive. We went over my case and he gave me very detailed information on what to do and we ended up winning the case!! He is definitely the right person for the job!!

    Was charged with fleeing a cop and speeding, my lawyer was able to obtain information that lead to my innocence on the first hearing I was very pleased to hear this news. He knows a lot of people at the courthouse as he is there a lot. You can tell he is a professional in his field and has experience, the price point was resonable for the charge I was given. They are always competing against other attorney offices and have great payment methods that worked great for me. I highly recommend anyone to contact them if they have similar issues.

    The Koenig & Long, LLC, Helped move my case along very quickly. In addition, the whole team was very helpful and provided world class service. Meeting with me multiple times at the drop of a dime to provide insight into next steps and making sure that everything was covered before (and after) every court date. I would highly recommend these attorney's for any case that you might have!

    Incredible Attorneys, who genuinely have your best interest at heart and will do what it takes to help you win! Just when my life was going completely downhill legally and mentally at a young age, Jim and his team believed in me and helped clear my record and turn my life around! I recommend this firm to anyone who seriously wants to change and seeks a brighter future. Phenomenal service!

    I referred a friend who had several charges pending, Koenig & Long were able to have most of the charges thrown out for my friend and he is now serving probation for a lesser charge. They were quick and reliable and always available to answer our concerns. I would recommend Koenig & Long to anyone. They have a great record winning the majority of their cases which is why I knew they were the best firm to represent my friend.

    Fortunately, I have not been in need of their services, but working with Koenig & Long has taught me a great deal about the lengths they go to defend their clients, their unwavering dedication to their work, and true grit. If you need a defense attorney, if you have everything on the line, you want an attorney with a winning record that speaks for itself. Koenig & Long has that record.

    Having co-counseled a number of cases with attorneys in this office, I can say with confidence they are quality lawyers who fight hard for their client's interests. They employ cutting edge research and novel motions, vigorous courtroom advocacy and an individualized approach to each case to reach fantastic results.

    I am a Columbus attorney who primarily practices in the areas of business, estate planning, and probate law. I have referred numerous clients and friends to Attorneys Todd Long and Jim Owen for criminal defense matters. Everyone I have referred has been pleased with the representation they received. Attorneys Long and Owen are top notch criminal defense attorneys and as is evident by their successful trial records. I recommend their firm without hesitation.

    I chose Koenig and Long initially because they were the only firm that could show me a great record of wins inside the courtroom. I felt they would really go to bat for me and represent me very well. I could not have made a better choice. The entire staff from Vanessa to Todd, Chuck, and Jim treated me with immense respect and gave my case their full attention. Even if I wasn't their only case, I never felt like I was on the back burner. Thankfully, I was able to add to their winning record and am very pleased with my outcome. In important situations, when you can't afford to choose the wrong attorney, I would recommend Koenig & Long.

    Superlative Attorneys!!! I had an outstanding warrant for a violation of protection order. The Owen Firm was able to get the warrant lifted and get the case dismissed. I would highly recommend The Owen Firm.
