We’ll also discuss your charges, possible outcomes, and defenses that may be raised. With our assistance and counsel, you will be well-equipped to make informed decisions about how we proceed with your legal matter.

Your freedom may be in peril, as misdemeanors and felonies in Ohio and at the federal level can be penalized by incarceration. Your future may also be at risk, as a conviction on your criminal record can make it difficult to find a job, get a place to live, or qualify for certain government benefits.
