Defending Your Interests Against Domestic Violence And Assault Criminal Charges In Central Ohio

You do not want a domestic violence and assault conviction on your record in Ohio. This negative trial outcome, accompanied by a jail term and heavy fines, leads to the end of rights that many of us take for granted — to own a firearm, to enjoy visitation rights with children after a divorce or to maintain a stable immigration status, just to name a few.

With the stakes this high, your criminal defense representation should be experienced, effective and aggressive in defense of your rights. I want to be that lawyer for you. I am John H. Bates, founder of the John H. Bates Attorney At Law firm in Columbus.

Since 1993, I have guided many wrongly accused Central Ohio criminal defendant clients past legal crises like these. My track record of success was built on insightful investigation, skillful plea bargaining with prosecutors and aggressive litigation against them in court, if necessary.

Was your domestic violence charge related to a sex crime? If so, you may also run the risk of permanent, mandatory sex registration if found guilty. This turn of events would seriously impair all efforts to start a new life upon your return to society, damaging prospects for employment, housing, credit applications and security status.
