Hire An Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney For Strong Representation
Individuals convicted of a crime in Ohio, whether through their own admission of guilt or through the determination of a jury, are subject to, among other penalties, fines, imprisonment, probation and community service. Defending your criminal case in the strongest possible way is critical to your freedom and your future. Further, being charged with a DUI carries a stigma that will follow you through your career and personal life.
The outcome of any criminal case, including cases involving a DUI charge, depends upon the facts surrounding the crime charged, the strength of the evidence, the legal validity of law enforcement and courtroom procedure, and the goals and strategy of the government and defense. As a skilled Akron Ohio Criminal Lawyer, I will navigate you through this complicated legal process.
I have provided expert criminal defense for hundreds of residents of Akron, surrounding communities and throughout Ohio within the following practice areas:
I've had divergent experiences within the criminal justice system for 35 years as a respected Akron Ohio Criminal Lawyer dealing with criminal defendants with various types of offenses. For 13 years, I served as a probation officer. I was also an assistant county prosecutor for 3 years. I have handled many state and federal cases, and have been with the federal court system in the Northern District of Ohio since 1987.
Trust Your Lawyer – He Will Be the One Representing You
If you have been arrested, or if you are stopped by the police for questioning, remember that your lawyer is the person you should trust. Law enforcement investigators are specifically trained to get people who don't want to talk to them to open up and talk with them anyway. The U.S. Supreme Court allows police, federal agents and criminal investigators to trick, lie and deceive during the course of their investigations to get the information they want.
If you are being investigated for a federal crime or other serious charge, do not answer any questions the officers, detectives or federal agents ask. You should politely, but firmly, tell them that you will need to retain an attorney before you can speak with them. Do not answer their questions. This cannot be stressed enough.You have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney – use those rights!
