Can An Attorney Really Make A Difference On Your DUI or Criminal Arrest?

As folks just like you will tell you…. when you’re looking at significant jail time after an arrest or a license suspension for DUI…. you’d better believe a talented attorney can make a difference.

As a former prosecutor turned defense attorney, I’ve been part of 1,000’s of success stories. If you or a family member has been arrested for DUI or other criminal offense, here’s what I’d like you to remember….

Best DUI Attorney

If you, or a family member have been charged, it’s very important to know that the consequences can impact all areas of your life.  You may not be able to secure employment, you may have to spend time in jail…. and your insurance premiums will be raised considerably if you are convicted of DUI.

We believe everyone should be able to meet or talk with a lawyer for the first time at no cost. Call 440-471-7811 for a FREE consultation on your DUI or Criminal arrest.

Top Criminal Lawyer


In the State of Ohio, DUI is considered a criminal offense.  If convicted, you will be faced with specific sentencing guidelines that the court will impose upon you.  These guidelines will be determined by your specific offense.  Penalties for second or third offenses are even steeper.

As you read this, you may be afraid that there is no hope for you after an arrest for DUI.  But our laws say that you are innocent until proven guilty.
My job is to hold prosecutors to the requirement of proof.  They have their version of the truth….and you have the right to counter it.

To make sure that is done correctly, it’s very important to hire a professional DUI Lawyer in Cleveland if you or a member of your family is arrested in the Cleveland area.  An experienced DUI Attorney brings many benefits to your case because he knows exactly how your case will proceed through the court, and he or she will work tirelessly to get you driving privileges, get a reduction in charges or even get the charges thrown out.

What We Do

We are known for our forceful and thorough approach to defending our clients. There can be evidence out there that police and prosecutors ignore, because their job is to make a case against you. Our job is to dig for evidence that challenges their facts. You can expect our legal team to double check every witness and piece of evidence that will be presented against you. Our investigators uncover their own information that can be used to defend you.

You can expect to be treated with respect and dignity, no matter which crime you are accused of or regardless of the legal situation you are in.

From day one we begin preparing for a court case. We do not believe in automatically recommending that a client accept a plea bargain. In the case of a plea offer that is in your best interest, you will always understand your options and the outcomes that are possible.
