Attorney Weisenburger founded the firm in 2000 based on his expertise in criminal defense and DUI, hence the name of this website, “ohiocrimelawyer.” He later hired associates to expand in other areas of the law, family law first and then probate, estate planning, and elder law.
When it comes to the interest of our clients, we leave no stone unturned to meet their expectations when possible or exceed them. We have experienced attorneys, well-trained staff, and technological resources to help achieve this goal. Our team works on-site, making communication easier and more effective. We also provide our clients with their own online portal where they can follow up on the progress of their cases.
With offices in Ravenna and Stow, we primarily serve clients in Portage and Summit Counties. We help clients in other courts upon examination of every case individually.
We Work With An Eye Towards Winning
Our attorneys and staff members achieve results through thorough investigation, comprehensive preparation, personal attention, and hard work. Once we are retained, we immediately begin by gathering information and evidence. We request witness statements, narratives, police reports, tests, call records, audiotapes, videotapes, photographs, and other physical evidence about alleged criminal or DUI charges. For family law, estate planning, probate, and elder law, we gather affidavits, depositions, documentation, and disclosure statements to obtain a clear picture of our clients’ situation and implement the best strategy.
Criminal Defense and DUI Cases
In a criminal or DUI case, our Akron DUI attorneys’ first goal is to explore the possibility of getting the DUI charges dismissed. If that isn’t feasible, the next goal is to get you the best possible resolution to minimize the consequences and the penalties. Then it is your decision whether to resolve the case through negotiation or have your attorney forcefully battle it out in a trial. Whether your case needs to be handled in Portage or Summit County courts, we are here to help you get the best possible outcome.
Family Law – Divorce – Custody – Child Support
In a family law case such as divorce, dissolution, alimony, child custody, or child support, our divorce attorneys determine how to best deal with your opponent and come up with a solution that will protect you and provide you with long-term benefits. We will represent you expertly throughout all stages of your case, protecting your interests during tough negotiations or in a trial.
Probate & Estate Planning – Wills and Trusts – Elder Law
Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning, and Probate require more than knowledge from your attorney. It requires a personalized approach to help you get your assets and property in order and give you the peace of mind you seek. If necessary, your attorney will develop a powerful strategy to address inheritance-related disputes that deal with various issues that require litigation.
A special trust is required to prevent a nursing home from ceasing your assets upon entering its facility. These trusts must preferably be created five years ahead of time.
