Like many of Cleveland's suburbs, Brecksville's small size means it makes more sense to consolidate DUI/OVI cases, traffic tickets, and criminal matters into a larger court. That doesn't mean you have any leeway by virtue of being charged in Brecksville. The city wants its fines and fees just the same as any other municipality, which is why working with an experienced criminal defense attorney can make such a difference in your case.
Being arrested is a traumatic experience in and of itself, but when you're formally charged, you need to take action right away to protect yourself, your family, career, and reputation. You'll have the choice of working with a public defender, who is often a young lawyer juggling dozens of cases like yours and who can easily be steamrolled by the prosecutor, or finding an experienced defense attorney who can protect your rights and push back against the allegations against you. A criminal record or a DUI conviction can cut you off from public benefits and services, entire sectors of the economy when it comes to your career, and even land you in prison. Obviously, your best course of action is to fight the charges against you with the strongest team around.
Trying to find the right lawyer can be daunting, which is why we make sure that everyone has the chance for a free consultation. We want to hear your story, and we'll ask you as many questions as possible to fully understand the situation you're facing. You'll get clear-headed, objective advice about the next steps you'll need to take and can decide for yourself whether we're the team to handle your issue. This is a difficult time for you and your family, and we understand the stakes when you're facing often serious penalties if convicted.
We fight hard for our clients, and our track record speaks for itself. Because we've served as prosecuting attorneys, we know how the other side will develop your case, what evidence they're likely to rely on, and how best to present it to a jury. We can anticipate their moves, which makes us highly effective advocates in pre-trial negotiations as well as tough adversaries in the courtroom. We aim to achieve the best outcome for our clients, which can mean reduced charges, dismissal before a trial, or facing a jury with the intention of winning the case outright.
