College Student Defense In Ohio

Ohio College Students Charged With Criminal Offenses And DUI / OVI
College is a time of experiencing new freedom.  Sometimes, that new freedom leads to conduct resulting in criminal charges.  The college students we represent are typically good people who have made an isolated mistake.  Even an isolated mistake can result in a conviction which has serious consequences.  In addition to the sentence imposed by the court, there are secondary consequences of a criminal conviction, including the possible impact on education, financial aid, employment, and professional licensing, as well as a mark on the student’s permanent record. 

If you are a college student who has been charged with a criminal offense or DUI / OVI in Columbus or central Ohio, a good criminal defense lawyer can make a difference in the outcome of your case and its impact on your future.  To find an effective defense attorney, you should research lawyers thoroughly and choose a lawyer who has expertise in criminal defense and experience representing college students.

Criminal Defense Lawyers With A Record Of Helping College Students
When our firm represents a college student, we are advocates, not judges.  Our roles are to make sure that our client is treated fairly in the criminal justice system, and to achieve the best possible outcome for every client.  While we cannot guarantee any certain results, many of the typical college cases we handle are resolved in a way that charges are dismissed or reduced, and clients are ultimately eligible to have the record sealed.

Criminal Defense Firm With Outstanding Service
The Dominy Law Firm is operated in a way which provides personal service.  We accept a limited number of cases so we can provide each client with the level of service we would want as a client.  Each case is assigned to one attorney, so you will not wonder which attorney has responsibility for your case or which attorney is going to be with you in court because one attorney typically handles each client’s case personally from start to finish.  Our clients are kept fully informed of all developments in their cases through frequent communication.  We return emails and phone calls promptly, and we make sure all of your questions are answered.  We charge flat fees, so you know at the beginning the exact cost of representation.
