If you have faced a DUI arrest, you need an attorney who understands the process and can work on your behalf for the best possible results in your individual situation. DUI penalties are serious and can be life-altering. An unchallenged drunk driving conviction can virtually ruin future education or job prospects. Consumption of alcohol can lead to such very serious consequences, and operating a vehicle while intoxicated is taken very seriously in Central Ohio. You need an experienced, well-versed advocate who can help you come through this rough patch and provide you a solid defense strategy. You do not need to settle for an inexperienced attorney who doesn’t know the ropes or the system.

Drug crime defense in Franklin County can be especially tricky and the complexities are not something you should approach without experienced, skilled legal counsel. Selecting a criminal defense lawyer to represent you should not be an arduous process. You should have an attorney who puts your needs and concerns at the forefront. The criminal defense attorneys and staff at Probst Law Office pride themselves in delivering a superior legal defense and communicating with clients throughout every step of the legal process.

Being charged with a sex crime can be especially embarrassing and carry a tremendous stigma. Don’t let that embarrassment lead to putting off building the most vigorous defense possible.  Find an experienced sex crime lawyer who knows how to create the strategies and defenses to help you.

Why do you need an attorney to defend you against a criminal, traffic, DUI or sex crime charge? Because facing any one of these charges can be a very scary experience with severe consequences. Convictions can include the possibility of jail time, steep court fines, driver’s license suspensions, and a permanent criminal record. Serious charges such as these can result in loss of employment, loss of a professional license, and consequences with military service. Being charged with or convicted of a criminal offense can also have serious consequences for high school and college students. This includes suspension, expulsion, and loss of scholarships and financial aid.

Our firm provides personalized and attentive legal representation throughout every phase of a criminal case, including:
