Types of Cases


Common misdemeanors are assault/domestic violence, drug paraphernalia, and disorderly conduct/resisting arrest. Sentences can include a fine up to $1,000, up to 180 days in jail, and the suspension of your driver’s license.


Felony offenses include most drug charges, serious property crimes like burglary and breaking and entering, and serious offenses of violence like rape and robbery. Sentences can include a fine of $2,500 to $20,000, 6 months to 11 years in prison, up to 5 years of Post Release Control, and the suspension of your driver’s license.

Federal Cases

I have been admitted to practice in the federal courts of the northern district of Ohio since 2004 and have defended clients against serious federal charges.

Probation Violations

Also known as community control violations, violations can result in stricter or longer probation terms, or the imposition of a suspended jail/prison sentence.

Judicial Release

Formerly known as shock probation, some prison sentences are eligible for judicial release. Eligibility is determined by the offense and the length of the sentence imposed.

Sealing & Expunging a Record

Depending on the offense, and your record, some convictions may be sealed. Sealing a record removes it from the public record. Don’t let a criminal conviction hold you back. I can help you seal your record.
