DRUG CHARGES:

Possession, distribution, trafficking, and other drug related charges can have severe consequences, including mandatory prison time, serious fines and a suspended license. This is why it’s so important to have a strong defense. Learn more

WHITE COLLAR CRIMES:

Financially motivated offenses like money laundering and embezzlement are thought by many to be minor crimes with minor consequences. Unfortunately, this just isn’t the case. In fact, they often have the biggest impact on the defendant and their family. They’re often complicated cases that require a skilled and highly experienced criminal defense attorney. Learn more

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE:

Disagreements among loved ones are common, but when law enforcement gets involved, matters often go far beyond what anyone intended. In fact, at a certain point, the State of Ohio could bring a case against you even if the alleged victim states they don’t wish to press charges. There is a policy that an arrest will be made if law enforcement determines there was a “primary aggressor.” Unfortunatly, It’s all too common that the police assumes the male is the primary aggressor. Therefore, it’s important to have a lawyer familiar with unfair law enforcement assumptions and how to overcome them. Learn more

VIOLENT CRIMES:

Violent crimes such as assault, robbery, and murder often result in charges that carry severe and long-lasting penalties. Depending upon the severity of allegations, you could face a significant prison term. These cases are treated very seriously by law enforcement and therefore, require an equally determined defense. Learn more

SEX OFFENSES:

Guilty or not, the mere accusation of a sex offense can have devasting consequences. More than any other crime, people accused of a sex offense are treated as guilty even before going to court. The alleged victim’s memory of what happened, witness observations, and forensic evidence (such as rape kits or DNA tests) can be all be interpreted in different ways. That’s why it’s so important to hire a lawyer who has conducted sex offense trials and knows how to effectively combat law enforcement tactics. Learn more

ROBBERY & THEFT CRIMES:

Depending on the circumstances of your case, as well as the value of the items you’re charged with taking, you could face years in prison, fines, and other penalties. These are cases that require highly experienced representation. Learn more

PROBATION VIOLATIONS:

Probation terms are very intrusive and sometimes it seems the restrictions are set up to ensure failure. It’s important to know, a probation officer’s belief that you’re in violation is not the final word. Even if you’ve violated your probation or failed to report, there are actions that can be taken to minimize penalties and avoid jail time. However, like most things, it’s best to address the situation before being arrested. Learn more
