DUI / OVI & Criminal Defense in Bedford, Ohio

Municipal courts like Bedford’s hear a variety of criminal complaints-and, despite it being a municipal court, you can still face significant penalties if convicted. Don’t risk your future by trying to handle your case yourself.

If you’ve been arrested in Bedford, get experienced legal help right away. Do not attempt to explain your situation to the police unless you have a criminal defense lawyer at your side. Statements you make will be used to build the case against you and, unfortunately, most people don’t have the expertise to avoid saying things that the cops can construe as admissions of guilt, intent, or other elements of a criminal case.

The consequences for conviction on a criminal matter can be far-reaching, affecting your family, career, and reputation for years to come. We protect our client’s rights by ensuring that prosecutors meet every single standard in the case they present, including properly collected and handled evidence, witness statements and testimony, and everything else they’ll use to try to convict you. We push back at everything and force them to go above and beyond if they want to win. In the best case, prosecutors will choose not to follow through on charges where the evidence is weak or flawed and your matter is simply dismissed with no penalties to you.
