Aggressive Defense from a former Prosecutor.

As a former Franklin County Public Defender and a Columbus City Prosecutor, I am very familiar with the officers, judges, and prosecutors in the Columbus area. Chances are, I’ve worked with them before, I know their tactics and how to defend you against them.

Being charged with a crime is an intimidating experience. I know you have questions. Will I go to jail? Will I lose my job? Will I be able to care for my family emotionally and financially?

Mistakes and misunderstandings can happen to anyone. Hiring the right defense lawyer is critical, but it’s difficult to know who to hire when every lawyer is claiming to be the right choice.

“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.” 

– Defense Attorney Nathan Akamine

I keep you informed every step of the way. If you have a question, we are just a phone call away, 24 hours a day.

“Thank you for a job well done. I appreciate that you took my calls and treated me with respect. I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done. I will recommend you to everyone I know.”

Anonymous

“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.
