Service And Results

A Proven Record of Favorable Results and Satisfied Clients

I understand your situation. You were charged with a criminal offense or DUI / OVI in Columbus, Ohio or the central Ohio area, and you are concerned about the impact this is going to have on your life. It is difficult to choose a defense lawyer because all of the websites look about the same. You need a good defense attorney with the expertise to help you achieve the best possible outcome, and you want a lawyer that provides outstanding client service. But before hiring an attorney, you need information.

I can help. This website will provide you with valuable information on DUI / OVI issues and criminal law topics, whether you hire me or not. After you learn more about your situation and criminal defense attorneys, you'll be in a position to make educated decisions about whether to hire a lawyer and which attorney to hire.

Don't just take my word for it. If you are considering hiring me or any other lawyer, look beyond the website hype. More important than what an attorney says about himself is the attorney's history of client satisfaction and results. On this website, there is a page with real reviews from previous clients, and there is another page with real results from recent cases

Why I have favorable results and satisfied clients:

  • Exclusivity. I limit the number of clients I accept, and every client is represented by me, not a junior partner or associate.
  • Service. I work each case very thoroughly and give each client the individual attention and service I would want as a client.
  • Results: I obtain favorable results for my clients, as you can see from my recent case results.
  • Peace of mind. I am here to help, so hopefully you can stop worrying. See what clients say about my representation.

My Practice. My practice is focused on providing 'elite service when results matter' for select clients charged with criminal offenses and DUI / OVI offenses in Columbus, Ohio and the central Ohio area. For more information about me, please see my profile. For more information about my practice, please see the firm overview.

My Fees. There is a wide range of fees among central Ohio criminal defense attorneys, and my fees are at the high end of that range due to my expertise, service, and results. I charge flat fees, so it is clear from the beginning exactly how much my representation will cost. Fees may be paid by cash, check, and credit cards.
