Last year was a difficult time for me, but having Doug Funkhouser as my attorney made it much easier. I had heard stories about lawyers not returning phone calls, communicating or answering questions when clients would have them; however, even though I was out of state, I found Doug to be quick to respond and always let me know where we were in the process. Perhaps more importantly, I sincerely felt like he had my best interests in mind and worked to get a fair and favorable outcome for me. If you are in need of good legal counsel, I highly recommend Doug Funkhouser.


As a lawyer I understood the problems facing me when I was cited for OVI. I knew Doug and his reputation, but still had much trepidation about my case. Through the course of his representation he alleviated these concerns and kept me calm. He was able to get my charge reduced to a Physical Control violation and save me a great deal of angst, sanctions and professional concerns. Thanks again. R.B.


Doug Funkhouser is an incredibly effective lawyer. He has helped me through two separate incidents with great understanding and results! He helped me get my OVI charge of operating a bicycle under the influence knocked down to a physical control violation which was a great relief. The thing I appreciate most about Doug was his honesty. I always felt like I could trust what he told me and in fact I was smart to do so. Thanks Doug!!


Doug Funkhouser was a life saver for my son, at least that is the way it felt that morning when he met us at the courthouse. My son was pulled over and arrested for OVI. I called the bar association and they recommended several attorneys, Doug Funkhouser was among those recommended. I called his number first and to my surprise and relief, Doug Funkhouser, (himself), picked up at the other end. I explained the situation to him and that my son had to be in court that morning. Doug replied that he had just got back from from jogging with his dogs and he would meet us at the courthouse, at that moment my anxiety decreased a little. As anyone who has ever lived through this will attest, it is very stressful situation and you feel adrift in unchartered water. Doug met us at the courthouse and my anxiety went down another notch and it continued to go down and then was gone, knowing Doug was representing my son. Doug was a calming force, he was patient and knowledgeable while representing and guiding my son through the legal process and achieving the best results he could for the him. I feel that Doug truly cared about my son and his future. I would recommend Doug Funkhouser without hesitation, he was amazing and always there when we needed him.

Doug came highly recommended to me. I was impressed with his tenacity and professionalism. He saved my career by going to trial and winning my case. I hope that I never need the services of an attorney again, but if I do, I’ll call Doug for sure. He treated my case like he was fighting to save himself. Thanks Doug!


Mr. Funkhouser came highly recommended to me by my mother. The results of my case were outstanding. I hope to never need his services again, but if I do I will definitely hire him again!

I was facing an OVI case among a list of other charges through Franklin County Municipal court. I heard through a family friend that attorney Doug Funkhouser was one of the best in his field. I contacted Doug and he returned my call in a fast timely fashion, answering all my questions and making me feel confident about my case. Doug was able to get my OVI reduced down to a Physical Control along with getting a couple other offences dropped. Best attorney in Columbus for my kind of case hands down.

I’m a combat veteran suffering from PTSD. I went to the bar to let out some frustration. I stayed until the bar closed. Against my better judgment I drove and got pulled over. I was double the legal limit for blood alcohol and I blew a 1.76 which is high test. Mr. Funkhouser was recommended to me by a friend. He took it to court and fought for me. He got my high test OVI charge dismissed. If not for him, I would have spent some time in jail and my license would have been suspended for a long time. I pretty much got a second chance because of Mr. Douglas Funkhouser. My family and I will recommend him and use him in the future if we need an attorney.

Thank you for your expertise, reputation and know how. I am certain my life would be in ruins had I hired different attorney. Your understanding and respect for my situation was paramount and know without a doubt my outcome would have been devastating without you. I’m still employed, married and successful thanks to you.

Over the last ten years I have worked with many attorneys as part of running a successful business. In my experiences with many of them, they seem to be more concerned with the billed hours than my case. Doug Funkhouser actually cares about his clients and the results of their cases. For my family, we can count on him whether it is personal or corporate because he is no longer an attorney to our family business but a friend to our family.

I am fortunate to have known Mr. Funkhouser for over 20 years. His character, experience and work ethic make him an ideal Lawyer. I highly recommend his services.

"Our experience with Mr. Funkhouser could be summarized as EXCELLENT" He represented one of my family members who went through a shoplifting case. We have never been through something like that in our lives. So we were confused and disoriented but Mr. Funkhouser was really patient and highly professional every time we called or met with him. He always answered our questions or concerns. We also educated ourselves that sometimes good people behave in inexplicable ways when they are facing hard times. -Several studies have found diagnosed depression to exist in approximately 1/3 of the shoplifters studied. Depression was the most frequently found physiological problem. -National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (NASP)…There are no excuses to justify a despicable behavior, however; addressing the root of the problem and learned the lesson is what really matters. Thank you very much Mr. Funkhouser.

Douglas Funkhouser came highly recommended from 2 of his previous clients whom I had a business relationship, so I set high expectations for him. Mr. Funkhouser met and exceeded those expectations. Even when I had lost hope of achieving our desired result, Mr. Funkhouser demonstrated his professionalism and was resolute until we reached an acceptable resolution. A differentiating factor was that Mr. Funkhouser always clearly explained my options and what outcomes were possible. I would recommend Mr. Funkhouser to anyone seeking representation by an experienced, respectful and trustworthy attorney.
