As you look to hire a criminal defense attorney, there are many important questions that you want to ask the criminal attorney near me. You want to ask them about their experience with cases like yours and what their win to loss percentage is. You want to ask what defenses they think they can use to help defend you against the charges that you are facing. You want to know what potential hurdles they think that your case may present. And of course, you want to ask them about the price. Do they charge a flat fee to defend you or will they be charging you by the hour to defend your case?

Attorney David Anthony Chicarelli

Since moving back to Ohio from Chicago to join my father's firm, my practice has been primarily focused in the areas of criminal defense, divorce/custody, and personal injury. I have worked on hundreds of felony and misdemeanor cases from OVI’s and drag racing all the way to burglary and murder cases.

In addition to my extensive private practice work, I also assist in several municipal courts in the Dayton/Cincinnati area with prosecution. I have been serving as the Carlisle Mayor’s Court prosecutor since 2015 as well as Interim Law Director for the Village of Carlisle. I have successfully prosecuted hundreds of cases in my roles as prosecutor; therefore, I feel I bring a unique insight and skill set in my criminal defense practice.
