Mr. Spitler helped me through a very tough time in my life and didn't even break a sweat. He was very honest and confident with what he was doing and I don't think I could have asked for a better person for the task. Steve has now helped me out twice with things I was very worried about, but the outcomes of both have been so much better than I could have ever imagined. Definitely a man who knows how to get things done.
Trustworthy. Reliable. Sincere. I could not have wished for a better attorney. Steven took on a tough case with me, but he still got me a great result that I was so happy for. He followed through with everything he said he would, worked with my very busy schedule to meet, and treated me like another person - not like "just another client". If I am ever in another bind again, I will certainly be giving him a call (but hopefully I won't have to).
Great lawyer with great results!
Steve has assisted me through two separate DUIs and helped tremendously! Also helped me to get other records expunged from my record when applying for jobs. Friends with DUI related cases suggested Steve because of great results and he delivered!
Excellent, could not be more satisfied.
I had 4 charges brought against me that I thought would not have the opportunity to be expunged. I was facing possible jail time, community service, alcohol classes, and criminal offenses. Steve has given me the opportunity to expunge my cases by staying out of trouble for 1.5 years. He was easy to talk to, understanding, responds quickly to emails, and answered every question I had.
Heard of Mr Spitler through a friend. My 18 year old was sighted for an OVI. After meeting with Steve we knew we were in good hands. All charges were dropped with no record of the incident! Now my son has a clean slate and has learned his lesson without ruining his record for the rest of his life.
Out of town trouble
Steven Spitler was a life saver. I live in Miami, FL and was in Ohio for a wedding. On the way to the airport, I got a speeding ticket which would have landed me 4 points which I could not afford. Mr. Spitler got the points removed and I paid a fair fine for the ticket, all while I was home in FL. Im definitely happy with how everything ended up.
Very nice/intelligent guy who really will put the extra effort in to help you out, would highly recommend. Great lawyer.
Steve was extremely easy to work with, made things as simple as possible, was really reliable and worked around my schedule. He was really trustworthy and someone I felt that I could count on. I would recommend him to anyone that needs a good lawyer. He was absolutely worth it and helped me get the best possible outcome with my case, he's the best.
Steve knows the law and the court system. He was honest with respect to everything explained to me at our first meeting through the end of the case.
Steven Spitler is an excellent lawyer
Steven Spitler is an excellent lawyer who has gone way beyond my expectations concerning my son's case. Steve's knowledge and experience most certainly determined a positive outcome for which I am grateful. His familiarity with the area's court systems and personal is an invaluable asset. Without hesitation I highly recommend his services to anyone in need.
I retained Steve for a minor but somewhat unusual civil case. Steve's preparation was excellent and the free consultation he provided beforehand helped helped a lot.
Very under standing and easy to work with, recommend 10/10.
DUI and Physical Control charges.
Mr. Spitler has helped me out a great deal on two occasions over the last two years, once for a DUI and once for a Physical Control charge, and the outcomes of both have been absolutely incredible. Steven kept the jail time nonexistent and always assured me that he could help keep things to a minimum, which is exactly what he did. I don't think there's anyone else around the area who could have done a better job. He was very professional but also treated me like an actual person instead of just another client, caring about my well-being and asking how things had been going for me through the time he helped me. He was very understanding of my financial situation and worked with me on payments for his services. He was also very easy to contact and would take time out of his day, even on weekends, to meet with me. I am very happy with the outcome of the charges that Steven has helped me with and would definitely ask for his help again if ever needed.
Steve was very good at keeping in contact, thoroughly explaining what was going on with my case, and did a great job at getting my charges reduced. He paid close attention to detail and worked out a deal with the arresting officer & prosecutor that got my felony charge refiled to a misdemeanor, along with getting my misdemeanor charge completely dismissed. Along with great knowledge in law, Steve is a very nice guy and was very patient with me, given that this was my first time being in court.
Although not the cheapest in town of bowling green Ohio but probably the best. He only deals with dui cases so therefore he knows a lot. Willing to go the extra mile for you even though I'm not planning on getting another dui I would hire him again with out a doubt.
When hiring Mr. Spitler for my DUI case, he had come highly recommended from a friend who also dealt with the same case. He was incredibly polite and professional from the moment we initially met. He took my case seriously and started working my case the minute I described my situation. He was timely in dealing with going to court and working to resolve my situation in the fastest and best scenario for me. He was able to work with the prosecutor and handle my case very professionally. He was always very quick to return calls and emails as we discussed the case, and he was personable throughout making me feel comfortable and confident in his handling of my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Spitler as he is kind, knowledgable of DUI laws, effecient, and willing to work with you in all situations.
I hired Steven for my DWI and he was terrific. He was always available to talk about any questions or concerns i had throughout the process. This meant a lot as the process can be stressful. He took my case very seriously and delivered everything he promised. I would without a doubt hire Steven again.

Possible 3rd DUI
After encountering my possible 3rd DUI I chose to have Mr. Spitler represent me. He was very forthcoming with knowledge of the incident and was readily accessible to me for questions that I had. Mr. Spitler always had me prepared for what would come next. I am very grateful to Mr. Spitler who put me in position to endure a very difficult time. His communication helped me feel I knew what was going on with my case at all times.
Excellent DUI lawyer
I retained the services of Mr. Spitler for a DUI case recently and thought he did a terrific job representing me. This was not my first DUI and in comparison to my previous lawyer, Steve went far above and beyond my expectations. He was attentive to every detail of my case, was always available for consultation, thorough in explaining to me what was going on, and what I needed to do and when. As my license was immediately suspended, Steve actually picked me up and dropped me off at work for court related appointments which was vital to me maintaining my job. He also reduced the length of my suspension by six months a year after my case was finalized, which was a pleasant and unexpected surprise. I thought his fee was more than reasonable for the amount of effort and attention he put into my case and highly recommend his services.
