With years of experience as a criminal and traffic defense attorney, as well as experience as a former prosecutor, we have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide you with the best possible defense.

Our Criminal & Traffic Defense Services

We offer a wide range of criminal and traffic defense services, including:

DUI / OVI Defense

If you have been charged with a DUI / OVI, we can help you navigate the legal system and minimize the impact of the charges on your life. We have experience dealing with the complex legal issues surrounding DUI / OVI charges, including breathalyzer tests, field sobriety tests, blood or urine tests, and license suspensions.

Drug Crimes

We have experience defending clients against charges related to Drug Possession, Distribution, Manufacturing, and Trafficking.

These charges can have long-lasting effects on your personal and professional life, including the loss of housing and employment. We can help you defend against these charges and protect your future. We have experience defending clients against charges related to Assault and Domestic violence, as both misdemeanors and felonies.

Sex Crimes

There may be no crime in the state of Ohio that can have a more significant impact on one's future than being accused of committing a sex crime. Whether you have been charged with Rape, Sexual Battery, Unlawful Sexual Conduct with a Minor, Gross Sexual Imposition, or any child pornography-related offense, we have the experience to challenge the intricacies involved in prosecuting these life-altering charges.

Probation Violations

If you are being accused of violating the terms of your probation (AKA community control), you need to be keenly aware of the immense ramifications that you might be facing if you simply admit or plead guilty to a probation violation allegation. We can examine the evidence that the prosecution and probation department have against you to aid you in formulating a defense or alternative sentencing plan to help prevent you from losing your freedom.

Sealing & Expungement of Records

With the recent changes to the sealing and expungement laws in the state of Ohio in April 2023, far more charges can be removed from your record than at any other time. Let us examine the charges on your record to make a determination as to whether sealing or expungement is appropriate in your circumstances so that you can stop letting your past hinder your future.

2. Why is it important to hire a criminal defense attorney if I'm facing criminal charges?

 

When facing criminal charges, it is essential to have an experienced criminal defense attorney by your side. A skilled attorney will protect your rights, guide you through the legal process, and build a strong defense strategy on your behalf. They will investigate the facts, challenge the prosecution's evidence, negotiate with prosecutors, and represent you in court. Having a knowledgeable attorney advocating for you can greatly impact the outcome of your case.

 

3. What are the potential consequences of a criminal conviction in Ohio?

 

The consequences of a criminal conviction in Ohio vary depending on the offense and other factors. They may include fines, probation, community service, mandatory counseling or treatment, loss of driving privileges, imprisonment, and a permanent criminal record. A criminal conviction can have long-term repercussions, affecting employment prospects, housing opportunities, and other aspects of your life. We will work tirelessly to minimize the potential consequences and protect your rights and future.

 

4. Can I refuse a breathalyzer or field sobriety test if I'm pulled over for suspected DUI/OVI?

 

In Ohio, you have the right to refuse a breathalyzer or field sobriety test. However, refusal may result in administrative penalties such as a driver's license suspension. It is important to consult with an attorney who can explain the potential consequences and guide you on the best course of action based on the specific circumstances of your case.

5. What should I do if I'm arrested or charged with a crime?

 

If you are arrested or charged with a crime, it is crucial to remain calm and exercise your rights. Remember the following steps:

 

  • Invoke your right to remain silent: Refrain from making any statements to the police without your attorney present. Anything you say can be used against you, so it's important to wait until you have legal representation.

  • Contact an attorney: As soon as possible, reach out to a skilled criminal defense attorney who can guide you through the process, protect your rights, and provide valuable advice.

  • Avoid discussing the case: Refrain from discussing your case with anyone except your attorney. This includes friends, family, or anyone else involved in the situation. Confidentiality is crucial to safeguard your defense.

  • Cooperate with your attorney: Provide your attorney with all the necessary information and details about your case. Be honest and open, as your attorney needs accurate information to build an effective defense strategy.

6. Will my case go to trial?

 

Not all criminal cases go to trial. Many cases are resolved through negotiations, plea agreements, or alternative resolutions. However, if going to trial is in your best interest, we will vigorously advocate for you in the courtroom, presenting a compelling defense on your behalf.

 

7. Can my criminal record be expunged in Ohio?

 

In certain circumstances, it may be possible to have your criminal record expunged in Ohio. Expungement allows for the sealing or removal of criminal records from public view. The eligibility criteria and process for expungement depend on the nature of the offense, the time that has elapsed since the conviction, and your subsequent behavior. We can assess your situation, determine if you qualify for expungement and/or sealing, and guide you through the process.
