Criminal Law Attorney in Canton, Ohio
Providing You a Strong, Reliable Defense
When you are charged with a criminal offense, whether a misdemeanor or a felony, it is important to have a lawyer to defend you, listen to your side of events and advocate for your rights. Having a dedicated defense can make all the difference for reducing charges and trials or avoiding them completely.
Areas of Representation
Drug offenses include charges for possessing and trafficking drugs. They can range from misdemeanor to felony offenses depending on the type and amount of drug involved.
If convicted of a drug offense, Ohio state law mandates a driver's license suspension and possible fines or even jail time. A conviction may affect your future ability to get a job, rent housing or get a college degree.
With our experience, you will have the representation you need to minimize these charges and achieve a favorable resolution.
If your child has been charged with a crime, they may face penalties, including community service, placement in a detention facility or residential treatment and counseling. A conviction for juvenile crimes can result in serious consequences for your child, including a criminal record and future difficulty securing job and educational opportunities.
With our attorney and staff, you can help your child avoid those repercussions and minimize the charges against them.
You may wonder if it's worth it to fight a speeding ticket or other traffic citation; it could be easier to simply pay the ticket. However, a traffic citation can put points on your driving record, cause an increase in your insurance premium, and if you have had multiple offenses, a traffic citation can lead to a driver's license suspension, probation and even jail time.
We can help you fight your speeding ticket or other citation to reduce the cost of the ticket and avoid insurance increases and other repercussions.
Civil Protection Orders
Civil protection orders can be placed upon a person and restrict contact and communication with another party as well as restrict freedom of movement. These civil protection orders can last for up to five years and violations of the order can lead to criminal charges.
If you are fighting a civil protection order, a charge of violating the order or you are petitioning for a restraining order, we can give you the support and representation you need to be heard.
Record sealing and expungement are the same in Ohio. They remove and clear references to prior convictions and seal the court and arrest records, blocking them from public view. With your records sealed, it is as if you were never convicted of a crime.
As your attorney, we can help you expunge previous offenses and return to living a full life free from the shadow of a criminal record.
