When you need a criminal defense lawyer, call us – whether you are facing charges by the state or in federal court. If you are looking for a skilled, dedicated attorney, we have the strategies and the tenacity to confront the allegations you are facing.

In Dayton, OH, call 937-228-9790 for a criminal defense lawyer. 

A criminal defense lawyer from our firm will passionately defend your rights and interests. You can trust that we will do everything within our power to provide you with the legal and scientific evidence needed to obtain an acquittal. And we will negotiate plea bargains, if that’s what the situation requires. If you have been found guilty in the criminal courts, we can appeal your verdict – even if you were represented by another attorney during trial. You don’t have to accept the outcome of your case, and we can help. Call us today.

We have provided criminal defense lawyer services to clients facing any number of the following charges:

  • Federal offenses
  • Murder and manslaughter in varying degrees
  • Production, distribution and/or possession of child pornography
  • Possession, distribution and conspiracy to distribute drugs
  • Assault and battery
  • Theft and receiving stolen property
  • Sexual misconduct, rape and child molestation
  • Weapon and firearm offenses and many more…
  • Our criminal defense lawyer can provide you with the legal assistance you need. If you do not see your charges on this list, call us today to discuss the details of your arrest and the allegations that you face.




It is always our objective to secure the very best possible outcome in any given situation, which is why, when our clients face guilty verdicts and sentencing, we make ourselves available to provide post-trial services. Our legal team provides the following post-trial services:

  • Judicial release. Your criminal defense lawyer would argue for the reduction of a prison sentence contingent upon offenses and mandatory sentencing guidelines
  • Shock probation, which is a privilege through the courts that allows eligible offenders to be released after serving only 30 to 60 days of a lengthier prison term
  • Early release, which is dependent upon the offenses for which a defendant was convicted among other factors
  • Habeas Corpus Relief, which is a petition to the courts to review the legal right of the state to hold a defendant prisoner

Our firm can provide you with in-depth explanations of the legal options available to you post-trial.

If you’re in search of a criminal defense lawyer who is not only experienced but will also be aggressive and committed to your case, pick up the phone and call now. Facing charges can be a harrowing ordeal. A guilty verdict will form the basis on which the rest of your life is judged and determined. Prosecuting attorneys are dedicated to serving the goals of the state and federal governments. And those goals can often be personal and/or political. Don’t go to court without a seasoned and well-prepared attorney. Call us today!
