“With 24 years of litigation experience spanning from murder to OVI, I have the knowledge, determination, and expertise to provide your best defense. Having spent four years as a prosecutor, I know how law enforcement operates.  As a private defense attorney, I focus my practice on impaired driving (OVI) and criminal cases.  I seek out cutting-edge defenses and won’t settle on the easiest or quickest resolution.  My goal is to reach the best possible outcome for you.”

 – Nathan Akamine

 

Columbus Defense Attorney

Being charged with a crime can be an intimidating experience.

Seeing the flashing lights of a police cruiser behind you…
Hearing the words: “You are under arrest”…
Feeling the cold steel of handcuffs clicking around your wrists…

Fear and questions inevitably fill your mind. The thoughts can be overwhelming.

Will I go to jail?
Will I lose my job?
Will I be able to continue to provide care for family both emotionally and financially?

Mistakes and misunderstandings can happen to anyone at any time. It is extremely stressful to see all you have worked for slip away. Reputations are built over a lifetime; do not risk letting the legal process destroy what you have worked so hard to attain.

Hiring Akamine Law is the first step towards removing your fate from law enforcement’s hand and placing it back into yours.

“I highly recommend Nathan to anybody in need of a defense attorney. He really helped a lot. He’s very professional and kind. I am very happy with the service he provided.”

“My husband was facing serious jail time because of his prior DUI cases. Mr. Akamine encouraged him to get the help he needed in a treatment program and convinced the Prosecutor and Judge to allow him to do house arrest instead of jail. We can’t thank you enough sir.”

Amy and John K.

I didn’t hire a lawyer for my first DUI. That was a mistake. Mr. Akamine goes above and beyond. Lawyer of the year in my option. I’ll never go anywhere else for my legal issues.”

Adam D.

“Mr. Akamine represented my son several times in the past. He recommended the best actions to take in court and he truly cared about us. I called often and Mr. Akamine always was able to make me feel better about my son’s situation. Thank you, thank you.
