Accurate Information about your Criminal Charges

Being charged with a crime is a frightening experience, whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony charge. Most people charged with a criminal offense usually have no real 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 criminal defense lawyer to evaluate their options.

In reality, very few criminal 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 conviction in Ravenna, Kent, Stow, Akron, Portage and Summit County courts.
