Independence Criminal Defense Lawyers

Serving Southern Cuyahoga County & All of Ohio

Our team is composed of former prosecutors who spent time working on all types of cases ranging from murder to DUI. In that time, we learned a number of valuable things that make our law firm incredibly successful. First, we learned how to properly analyze high-profile, high-stress, high-risk cases from the standpoint of a jury.

As a result of learning this skill, we have had astounding success at trial. Second, we learned to understand exactly how police officers and government agents approach a case; this insight makes it easier for us to understand exactly what the police and government agents are trying to do. Third, we developed a reputation as criminal defense trial attorneys who aggressively takes cases to trial that other attorneys are not willing to take.

All of our lawyers challenge the government's evidence and do not simply take the police at face value; we dig deep into their evidence and question what they really have.

For example, many people feel if they fail a breathalyzer test that they will be convicted 100% of the time. We believe that this is false. Our experiences show police can make serious mistakes in how they handle an OVI arrest and subsequent investigation. No case is absolutely hopeless; however, many are difficult and require the skill and expertise of criminal defense attorneys who have been there before defending your type of case.

We are proud to provide free consultations on every case that we handle. We think that it would be incredibly ridiculous for you to have to pay to initially speak with us regarding your case. At our firm, we want you to be able to freely discuss the particulars of your case with legal counsel before we decide to take your case on. It is also important to us that you are comfortable with us. If you would like to learn how we can help, call today.
