Mr. Mallory’s first position out of law school was with a boutique litigation firm in Columbus, where he handled both civil litigation and white collar criminal defense. In 2010, he joined a large criminal defense firm in Columbus and gained more trial experience, representing thousands of people charged with traffic, OVI, and criminal offenses.

Mr. Mallory founded his own firm with Dan Sabol in 2018. He is certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for successfully completing the same training that is required for law enforcement officers to conduct roadside Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. Mr. Mallory is committed to meeting clients whenever it is most convenient for them, however is most convenient for them, whether it be over the phone or in person at our office, your home, or another location.

In his spare time, Mr. Mallory loves spending time outdoors with his wife, Leah, and black Labrador, Boone. Hunting and fishing are passions of his and he donates a portion of the meat he acquires to Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry, an organization devoted to providing food to those in need.

Mr. Mallory has been been enjoying spending time on his boat on Lake Cumberland and Deep Creek Lake. He is also an avid golfer and enjoys following the PGA Tour.

Mr. Mallory takes particular pride in assisting professionals who have been charged with OVI or other criminal offenses. He understands the potential complications that arrests and convictions can have on people with professional licenses, and works to minimize the damage.

Mr. Mallory and Mr. Sabol both frequently lecture on drug recognition expert (DRE) issues. In one case, he was able to get charges dropped against a driver arrested for OVI despite only having a breath alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.07.
