Protecting the Rights of those Accused of Criminal or DUI Charges

The legal systems in Portage and Summit County are tough and unforgiving. The consequences of a criminal or DUI conviction can impact all aspects of your life. The complexities of the legal justice system can be overwhelming for the accused, and for attorneys who have little experience in criminal defense. Your future is too important to trust an attorney who lacks extensive experience in the field of criminal and DUI defense.

Accurate Information about your Criminal or DUI Charges

Being charged with a crime is a frightening experience, whether it is a misdemeanor, a felony or a DUI/OVI charge. Most people charged with a criminal or a DUI offense usually have no realistic understanding of criminal law and the justice system. Often they feel hopeless and just want to “get it over with.” Consequently, they don’t consult with a lawyer to evaluate their options.

In reality, very few criminal or DUI cases are open-and-shut. A savvy criminal defense attorney will be alert to the many options available to help you avoid the harsh consequences of a criminal or DUI conviction in Ravenna, Kent, Stow, Akron, Portage and Summit County courts.

Acting fast is crucial. You need to take action now.
