As an Ohio attorney, I know the legal system is large, complex, and intimidating. I understand that interaction with government agencies is disorienting and the rules are unclear. If you, a family member, or a friend have been arrested, charged with a crime, are the subject of an investigation, or involved in a dispute with the government, it is in the accused person's best interest to obtain legal representation.
As an attorney, my job is to defend your interests, freedom, dignity and reputation and to make sure you understand your rights, the process, and the consequences of your decisions. Do not let the system intimidate you. I am here to help. Don't face it alone. I practice law with a two part philosophy, which I am ready to put to work for you.
First, the client is a person. As my client, I will treat you as a person, not as a number, a case, or a wallet. I will give you courtesy and respect and treat your problems with diligent attention. I will work with you to find the most cost effective solution to your problems.
Second, the lawyer is an advocate, a guide, and an adviser. I will be your advocate. I will make sure you are not pushed into decisions you do not understand. I will investigate the evidence and claims against you. I will present the evidence and claims in your favor. I will ensure that your rights respected. I will guide you. I will explain the workings of the legal system so you will know what to expect and when to expect it. I will keep you informed of the status and progress of your case. I will advise you. Each step of the way you will face choices about your representation. I will explain each choice, the possible outcomes and potential consequences. It is unethical for an attorney to promise results, but I will tell you which choice I believe is best for your particular circumstances and explain why I believe it is best.
Ultimately, you will make the key decisions regarding the direction of your case and I will work hard to achieve your goals. So if you or a loved one is facing legal difficulties, call or email today. I am located in Cleveland. Your consultation is free.
