Why Defense Lawyer Nathan Akamine?
I will be your lawyer from day one, until the end of the case. I take your calls. I file your motions. I respond to your emails. If we go to court, I will be right there beside you and we are going to get it done.
I sharpened my skills as a Columbus City Prosecutor and Public Defender. I have the wisdom of 20+ years of private practice and a history of earning the best results against determined adversaries.
Don’t be afraid of the legal system.
Achieving the best possible outcome starts with a high-level investigation into your case and open communication to help you fully understand your options.
Although your case may not require a trial, the intense pre-trial preparation provides the details for a rigorous defense.
A defense attorney who cares.
Law enforcement and prosecutors have important roles and responsibilities, but they can make mistakes. In the worst of cases, innocent people go to prison for crimes they didn’t commit.
Too often, giant law firms leave clients feeling like they are just another file on a big desk.
As your defense attorney, I’m here for you. I will explain the process in detail and answer your questions. I will keep you informed and take your calls. Together, we will get it done.
“I highly recommend Nathan to anybody in need of a criminal defense attorney. He really helped a lot. He’s very professional and kind. I am very happy with the service he provided.”
“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.”
“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.”
–Amy and John K.

A DUI arrest can be terrifying. You’re removed from your vehicle and humiliated on the side of the road. An arrest for suspected drunk driving can have severe consequences and is a much more serious matter than getting a simple traffic ticket, so you need to respond...
“You have the right to remain silent…..” chances are you know the rest. You don’t have to be involved in a crime to have heard it, thanks to crime TV shows. These are Miranda Rights and although many people can recite them, not everyone understands what they mean....
