Why Do You Need The Best Criminal Defense?

In criminal law, every individual is innocent until proven guilty. Just because you’ve been charged with a crime does not automatically mean you are guilty or should be convicted. Without criminal defense attorneys, innocent individuals could be thrown into jail unnecessarily. Hiring a team of criminal defense lawyers helps you protect your rights and defend yourself. With a professional on your side, you can potentially negotiate a deal with the prosecution or build a case for yourself to defend your rights in court.

The legal system can be overwhelming and challenging to navigate. Individuals may face longer sentences and more severe consequences without a criminal defense lawyer. By hiring an attorney from our law firm with your best interests at heart, you can rest assured that we will fight the criminal charges against you and get you the outcome you deserve.

Unfortunately, without the right legal experience, individuals going through divorce could be forced to pay hefty monthly payments or divide their assets unfairly. With a lawyer from our team on your side, you can fight for your rights and advocate in divorce court for a fair and just separation from your spouse.

Similarly, our team is experienced in estate planning and tax strategies. Although not strictly family law, estate planning, and family matters have a good amount of overlap. If you want to plan your estate, write a will, or practice charitable giving, having a professional by your side is essential. Our team will meet with you to learn about your financial goals and assets to reduce tax liability and ensure your estate is rock solid.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Probate Court?

The legal process by which your property is collected, managed, and distributed after a person’s death is known as “probate.” Some types of property pass automatically under Ohio law, while other types are required to go through the probate process.

The probate process in Ohio is usually longer and more time consuming than most people assume. It helps to plan ahead to avoid some of these problems.

We can help you plan to minimize cost and probate issues. Consulting with an experienced estate planning attorney is essential in making sure that your final wishes regarding your property, your loved ones, and your healthcare options are carried out with success and at the least cost.

Can an Attorney Decrease Tax Liability for My Estate?

Reducing tax liability is a concern for many people with large estates. Estate planning can help you allocate your funds to different locations to reduce that tax liability and give more money to your heirs and beneficiaries. Strategies like charitable giving, creating special needs trusts, and creating revocable living trusts can help you protect your assets.

As your estate planning lawyer, a member of our team will assess your unique situation and develop a legal strategy that works for your financial goals. We can present you with multiple scenarios to protect your estate and reduce your tax liability now and in the future.

Do I Need a Lawyer if I Have Been Charged With a Crime?

Being charged with a crime can be a stressful and frightening experience. Dealing with law enforcement and going in front of a judge are never things you should do on your own. If you have been charged with a crime, hiring a criminal defense lawyer right away is essential.

A lawyer will assist you in exploring opportunities to potentially get the charges against you dropped altogether. If that isn’t possible, your lawyer will then negotiate with the court to potentially reduce the penalties and consequences you are facing. And if your case goes to trial, your lawyer will advocate for you and present evidence in your favor to get you the outcome you deserve.

What is the Difference Between a Felony and a Misdemeanor?

If you have been charged with a crime, you will likely be charged with either a felony or a misdemeanor. A misdemeanor is typically considered a less severe offense and may carry lighter penalties, like minimal jail time, community service, or fines. Felonies are considered more severe and come with harsher penalties, like long sentences in jail and hefty fines.

Both felonies and misdemeanors are categorized by grades, with first-degree being the most severe. In general, misdemeanor offenses are easier to expunge from your record, meaning they will be destroyed and not public records anymore. Felony offenses may be more difficult to expunge, although it is not impossible.

Can Felony Convictions Be Sealed or Expunged?

Having a felony conviction on your record can impact your ability to get a job, find housing, or take out a loan. Because you must disclose felony convictions on applications, employers and administrators may discriminate against you unfairly. Fortunately, expunging your record means that your criminal record is destroyed and can no longer be looked up by members of the public.

Low-level felony convictions that are non-violent and non-sexual are typically eligible for expungement. To apply, individuals must file an application with the court and wait for an expungement hearing. During the hearing, the prosecution may object to the expungement, so it’s essential to have an experienced attorney present.

Do I Need an Attorney if I Am Getting Divorced?

Going through the divorce process can be a stressful and emotional experience. Negotiating with your soon-to-be ex-spouse about child support, spousal support, and asset division only adds to this challenging time in your life. Plus, without a lawyer, you could agree to a divorce settlement that isn’t fair to you.

Even if you and your spouse are on good terms, consulting with a divorce lawyer is the best way to ensure your settlement is fair and just. We can talk to your spouse or their legal representative and represent you in front of a judge if need be.

Who Decides How Assets Are Divided in a Divorce?

In any divorce case, both spouses must decide how the assets are divided. Typically, couples will divide up marital assets or any marital property obtained during the marriage. Deciding what is separate property and what is marital property can be a significant point of contention between couples regarding divorce.

If both parties can’t agree on the major terms of divorce, then they can take their case to court for litigation. If this happens, a judge will decide how to equitably divide the assets so both parties receive just treatment. A judge’s decision is final, meaning it cannot be appealed.

What is the Quickest Way to Get a Divorce?

The fastest way to get a divorce is to get a dissolution of marriage or go through an uncontested divorce. In either of these cases, both parties generally agree on all major terms of the divorce. Once the divorce papers have been drawn up, both parties will sign and submit those papers to the court.

A contested divorce, or one in which spouses cannot agree on the major terms, can be time-consuming and expensive. If you and your spouse are at an impasse, consult a lawyer about collaborative divorce or arbitration. Although not as fast as an uncontested divorce, these paths can speed up the divorce process, saving you time and money.

How Can an Attorney Assist With Estate Planning?

Planning your estate is one of the most important processes you can go through when it comes to protecting your assets. Creating wills and trusts and appointing heirs is the best way to ensure your money goes where you want it to after you pass. Taking the steps now to allocate your estate will save your family from a long and expensive legal battle in the future.

An estate planning lawyer can meet with you to determine your financial goals and needs. After looking at your assets, an experienced attorney will suggest strategies to allocate your estate and reduce tax liability, even after you are gone.
