PRACTICE AREAS

FELONY

Facing serious felony charges can be a scary and intimidating experience. My practice has a strong emphasis on felony charges in Northeast Ohio Courts of Common Pleas and U.S. Federal District Courts.

In building a strong defense against serious criminal charges, I begin by learning about your needs, as well as your goals for yourself and your family. I then analyze the details of your case; police reports, search warrant(s), witness statements and other documents.

I will work tirelessly to protect your rights and advocate for your interests.  You can count on me to do whatever is necessary to provide a favorable outcome to your case.

MISDEMEANOR

Even minor criminal charges can have a lasting effect on your reputation, and can follow you around for years to come.​

I am equipped to handle a wide range of criminal defense matters, from minor misdemeanor traffic offenses, to more serious first-degree misdemeanors.

If you have traffic or criminal charges pending against, or you believe charges may be filed, I'm committed to making sure you understand the charges, know your rights, and are prepared in the event that your case goes to trial.

My services may reduce the penalties that you're looking at, or help you to avoid being convicted of a criminal law violation altogether.

OVI/DUI

Driving under the influence is one of the most commonly committed crimes in the United States. Unfortunately, because this crime is so common, many people make the mistake of taking their DUI arrests lightly instead of seeking appropriate legal representation.

Sometimes good people make mistakes. However, if you’re convicted of DUI, you could end up facing tough penalties such as stiff fines, loss of driving privileges, or jail time. Additionally, your insurance rates may increase and you may even be shut out from some job opportunities due to your conviction. With the stakes being so high, it’s a wise idea to enlist my help in handling your OVI/DUI case. 

Whether this is your only DUI charge or your third, I can provide you with the legal assistance you need. I help each client understand DUI laws and build a defense for his or her case. From the start of your case, through to its conclusion, I'll offer you excellent service and professional advice.

I help every client protect his or her rights when being accused of a DUI offense. No matter your driving history, I'll do my best to have your charges dismissed.

I will provide the support, advice, and representation you need to fight your DUI charge. Call today—your future depends on it.

JUVENILE DEFENSE

When a child is charged with a crime, it affects the entire family. This is especially true in cases where a minor has been charged with a serious criminal offense, such as a sex crime, assault, or even murder. Whether your child has committed a crime, been wrongfully accused of a criminal act, or simply made a mistake, my hard work and guidance can help you get through this difficult time.

Not all attorneys are equipped to work with juvenile defendants. It takes a combination of compassion and knowledge of the law to see your child through the juvenile court system and work to achieve the best possible outcome.

Remember: A criminal charge against your child doesn’t have to negatively affect the rest of his or her life. If your child is in trouble, I can help you understand your child's legal options.
