One Clear Objective In Mind: To Provide The Highest Quality Legal Services- by DOUGLAS E. SASSEN, Director of Law, City of Newark Ohio -

In January, 2006, I assumed the role of Law Director for the City of Newark with one clear objective in mind: to provide the highest quality legal services on behalf of the citizens of Newark in the most efficient and cost effective manner possible.  Immediate changes in the structure of the office reduced the size of the legal staff and reduced the burden of our office on the city’s general fund.  Since then, we have continued to provide this high level of service while holding fast to our commitment to cost effective operation.  We succeed in achieving this objective thanks to the dedication and hard work of our four assistant law director’s, four administrative support staff, and two victim/witness advocates. Today, the Law Director’s Office, as a part of our statutory mandate, provides criminal prosecution and appellate advocacy services for all misdemeanors occurring within the City of Newark and the unincorporated areas of the county.  Over the years, we have contracted with the cities of Heath, Pataskala, and Reynoldsburg, as well as the village of Granville to provide such services for a fee, further reducing our demand on Newark’s general fund budget.  At the same time, we provide a full range of legal services for the city administration, all departments, and Newark City Council, including the drafting and review of all contracts, preparation of ordinances and resolutions, and consultation regarding all legislative issues and procedures.  An important function of our office is our Victim/Witness Advocate program.  We are very proud of the services offered on behalf of all victims of crime within our jurisdiction to ensure their needs are met and their voices are heard.  Our staff is equally involved in our community outside of the office as well, serving on many boards, committees, and organizations in an effort to make Newark and Licking County a better place to live and work.
