CRIMINAL DEFENSE: OVI, FELONIES AND MISDEMEANORS
If you or a loved one finds themselves on the wrong side of the law in Ohio or West Virginia, you will need experienced and competent legal counsel to mount your defense. Graham & Graham’s Ohio criminal defense lawyers handle criminal law cases ranging from operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OVI) and other traffic violations to misdemeanors and felonies involving drugs, assault, robbery, firearms, and more. We offer people in trouble the legal counsel and aggressive representation they need. If you’ve already been convicted, we can help you prepare and file your appeal.
Graham & Graham takes the time to understand your case and understand you! You are not just another file. You are treated like a real person with real problems and we are ready and able to offer you real help.
We cover the full range of criminal law matters including:
- Appeals (felony and misdemeanor)
- Domestic violence
- Drug possession, distribution, and related crimes
- Firearms and weapons charges
- Fraud and cybercrimes
- Juvenile crimes
- Murder and manslaughter
- Probation or parole violations
- Public intoxication
- Sexual crimes; rape, solicitation, assault
- Theft and burglary
- Traffic violations
If you are arrested
Fact: You have the right to remain silent. You need only to answer one question from law enforcement— “What is your name and address?”
Fact: You have the right to call an attorney. (And should do so immediately!) Put our number in your phone contacts right now: 1-800-625-8585. While you may never need it – and we hope you won’t – if things go wrong, even a non-felony car accident or a domestic dispute, you’ll have someone to call right away.
We know how disorienting encounters with law enforcement can be, but you are not helping yourself by trying to explain what happened or why without a lawyer by your side. It’s important to remember, anything you say (or do) can be held against you in a court.
Our criminal defense lawyers will meet you at the scene or police station – any time day or night. If you’ve already been charged and released on bail or on your promise to return for a hearing, but have not yet hired an attorney, we can meet with you in our office or another convenient location. Our goal is always to present the best case to reduce penalties, charges, or jail time, or to get your charges dropped.
