Affordable, Quality Legal Representation In Columbus And Central Ohio

My years as a criminal lawyer have taught me that there is no substitute for experience — or for investigation, case preparation, the ability to negotiate with prosecutors or insurance defense lawyers and argue against them eloquently in court. This has been the formula for my Columbus law firm's success when criminal cases have gone to trial. I look forward to bringing these benefits of my representation to your side when freedoms and futures are at stake.

DUI/CDL/Traffic Violations

If your Ohio driving privileges or commercial driver's license are under attack after a DUI arrest or series of traffic tickets, I do everything in my power to keep this offense off your record and put you back on the road.

Sex Crimes And Internet Crimes

Are you facing years in prison, heavy fines and a criminal record as a felon because of a sex crime or Internet crime charge? You owe it to yourself and your family to do what you can to avoid this bleak outcome — which includes mandatory sex offender registration that diminishes your rights and makes you a marked person in your community.

Set Up A Free Initial Consultation Today

In addition to criminal defense, I take on bankruptcy, personal injury, juvenile and divorce cases. Whatever your needs, a skilled attorney will be your best ally when dealing with a serious legal matter. Call 614-221-3630 or complete my online contact form to get started.
