Why Hire an Ohio Criminal Defense Lawyer?

A criminal defense attorney plays a critical role – both in and out of court – in the outcome of your case, and your experience through the legal justice system. 

At Cross Law Office, LLC, our criminal attorneys will:

  • Discuss the information related to your situation. This will help your lawyer form a defense strategy addressing the issues at hand.
  • Examine your case. Beyond discussing the facts of the situation, your attorney will also conduct extensive investigations of serious cases, which may include addressing police officers, witnesses, and experts. We can also study the prosecution’s case to construct a case against the charges.
  • Review the evidence. This might involve collecting witness and police statements, as well as independently testing evidence.
  • Engage in plea bargaining if it Is right for your situation. In certain circumstances, prosecutors will issue a lenient sentence to defendants in exchange for their cooperation or admission of guilt. This option is not always in the defendant’s best interests, however, such as if the accused is innocent or the prosecution lacks the evidence to prosecute the case. In such a situation, we will aim to dismiss the charge or proceed to trial, which may be a more favorable option.
  • Represent the defendant at trial. This includes arguing on behalf of the defendant and acting in the courtroom as their legal voice, as well as hearing testimonies while in court, speaking with jurors, and cross-examining witnesses and experts. At Cross Law Office, LLC, we do not shy away from trial and will do what it takes to stand up for your rights and best interests. 

After an arrest, consult with our criminal defense lawyers in Noble County to discuss your legal options. Call (740) 997-2004 or fill out our secure online contact form to get started.

Don’t Risk Criminal Penalties

The criminal penalties upon conviction for any charge could result in jail time and fines, among other penalties. For instance, even a misdemeanor, regarded as a “less serious” crime, of simple assault is punishable by months in county jail and/or fines, probation, and restitution. Certain offenses could also become “aggravated,” resulting in felony penalties, which could amount to years in prison and higher fines. In either case, you may be left with a criminal record, which can hinder your ability to obtain housing, loan, education, and other opportunities. 

Quality legal representation, however, could help to reduce or mitigate the penalties you face, if not dismiss them outright. 

Don’t risk the criminal penalties without putting up a fight; let our Ohio defense lawyers put our experience and advocacy skills to use as we defend your case in court.
