The Law Offices of Saia & Piatt, Inc. is very pleased to announce that two of our attorneys have been nominated as candidates for leadership positions in the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. For the 2015-2016 year, Attorney Jon Saia has nominated for President-elect and Attorney Jessica D'Varga has been nominated for Secretary.
The OACDL is an organization committed to furthering the capabilities, the resources, and the acumen of the state's criminal defense community. To do this, the OACDL fosters its membership with educational events like seminars, lectures, and Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs and participates in outreach efforts to inform the public of their rights and liberties under the law.
Attorney Saia is no stranger in helping enrich our local legal community. AV Preeminent® Rated by Martindale-Hubbell®, he remains a prominent authority on Ohio criminal defense and OVI matters and is frequently asked to speak at educational engagements. Recent sessions include the Ohio State Bar Association Annual Convention, the Central Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers Presentation, and the OACDL's 2015 Advanced DUI Defense Seminar & Trial Skills Academy.
Attorney D'Varga also embodies the excellence and vigilance the OACDL wishes to promote among its membership. Aside from being recognized by Ohio Super Lawyers®and Columbus CEO Magazine's "Top Lawyers," Attorney D'Varga has completed training in operating and maintaining the Intoxilyzer 8000 breathalyzer unit and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's "DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing"-both of which are usually intended only for officers of the law.
We congratulate both attorneys on their OACDL nominations and are certain that the organization only stands to benefit from their unflagging insight, commitment, and integrity.
