Client Consultations

Meeting with an attorney for the first time should not be a scary experience. We offer a friendly and professional environment with a knowledgeable and experienced staff where people feel comfortable from the moment they walk into our office. Conversations with clients about legal matters are held in the utmost confidence.

We accept same day and next day business appointments and our attorneys routinely meet with clients after regular business hours and on weekends to accommodate their work and school schedules. For those clients who are charged with a DUI or OVI offense and who can’t drive due to a driver’s license suspension, our attorneys will gladly schedule consultations outside of the office in a location more suitable to the client.

Dedicated Defense Against All Criminal Charges

Every defendant has a constitutional right to a defense, regardless of his or her charge. My practice areas encompass all criminal matters, from minor traffic violations to homicide. Whether you have been charged with DUI/OVI, are facing drug charges, or have been charged with another crime, you can rely on me to help you build the strongest possible defense from my Columbus criminal defense law firm. I Offer help, not Judgment

For most people, being charged with a crime is scary and embarrassing. I want you to know that I am not here to judge. I am here to help. People often get the impression that lawyers are arrogant, stuffy and unapproachable. Nothing could be further from the truth in my case.

I am a personable and approachable criminal law attorney. I care deeply about my clients and handle each case as if it were my own. I investigate and prepare for each case thoroughly and negotiate with the prosecution for a positive result. If the prosecution is unwilling to make a fair offer, I have the trial experience to argue aggressively and persuasively at trial.
