Areas of Practice


Experienced and professional representation for cases ranging from minor traffic matters to criminal misdemeanors and felonies. Criminal convictions can have life-altering consequences. When faced with a criminal case, you need a lawyer who understands all parts of a criminal investigation. Atty. Macejko is well respected and has been part of thousands of criminal cases as both a prosecutor and defense attorney. If you are under investigation or about to be charged, it is never too early to get an attorney involved who will fight for you and make sure you are protected.


When accused of Operating a Motor Vehicle While Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol (OVI), time is of the essence. OVIs are among the most complicated misdemeanor traffic cases and you need an attorney who will act quickly to address not only the OVI, but the collateral consequences that come with it like driver’s license suspensions. An OVI conviction can cost you more than money as your ability to earn a living may be at risk. These charges get more serious if the offense is associated with a crash, a child is in the vehicle, or there are prior OVI convictions in play. Hire an attorney who will protect you, identify the weaknesses of the case, and obtain the best results possible for you.


When a family member passes, the probate court will determine how the estate is distributed. The probate process can be challenging even if the family member left a will. Hire an attorney experienced in the probate court to guide you the steps and make sure that the wishes of your departed loved one are carried through.


Mistakes of the past can affect your employment and damage your reputation even decades after the conviction. If you have been convicted of a crime or multiple crimes and enough time has passed, an expungement can erase your criminal past. But, expungements are not easy and understanding the nuances of the law are critical. Recent changes to Ohio law have made many people eligible for expungements who could not qualify before the changes. Contact Atty. Macejko to see if we can clear your record.


Federal law allows people and businesses to file for relief under Chapter 7, 13, or 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Chapter that is right for you is an important decision. Many run into difficulty as a result of job loss, medical bills, divorce, or overextending yourself financially. Atty. Jay Macejko works closely with Atty. Melissa Macejko on bankruptcy matters. Melissa is a highly qualified and experienced bankruptcy practitioner with experience in all areas of bankruptcy. Your situation will be evaluated based upon information provided by you in the form of required records, a bankruptcy questionnaire, and an in-depth consultation in order to recommend the best course for you.
