If you have been accused of a crime, the SRD Law Firm, located in Columbus, Ohio, can guide you through the court process and advocate forcefully on your behalf. Our female Columbus criminal defense attorney has represented individuals in a wide range of criminal defense matters for over 25 years. Whether you have been accused of a misdemeanor or a felony, we know how to present your case and secure your rights.

Assault Charges

In Ohio, there are multiple categories of assault, including negligent assault, assault, aggravated assault and felonious assault. The type and degree of assault you are charged with depends on a multitude of factors, such as whether a weapon was used and whether anyone was harmed. An assault may be considered a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances. For example, assault is a felony if the victim is a public official such as a police officer or firefighter. Aggravated assault and felonious assault are both considered felonies. Charges are based on the prosecution’s view of the nature of the assault, whether it was planned, the extent of the injuries, whether it involved a weapon and whether there were extenuating circumstances. Our attorney carefully evaluates each assault case in order to formulate the most effective defense strategy possible.

Drug Crimes

Drug crimes include sale, distribution, possession, theft and manufacturing of controlled substances. In Ohio, a felony drug conviction, depending on the degree of the crime and related circumstances, may result in a period of incarceration of six months to 11 years plus a fine of up to $20,000. In defending your interests, our attorney will scrutinize the state’s evidence and how it was obtained and preserved. She will also challenge the credibility of the prosecution’s witnesses and the weight given to any expert testimony, bringing to light all weaknesses in the state’s case.

OVI & OMVI Charges

A conviction of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs can have serious consequences for your life and livelihood. An OVI (known as a DUI in other states) is a crime if the amount of alcohol and/or drugs in your system exceeds the statutory limits. Conviction for such a crime can result in a fine, license suspension, limitation of driving privileges, installation of an ignition interlock driving device and an order to attend an alcohol treatment program. In defending against an OVI charge, our attorney will investigate how field sobriety or chemical tests were administered and any other factors that may mitigate the charges against you.

Fraud Crimes

Fraud is the intentional use of deception to deprive another person of money, property or other thing of value. There are many forms of fraud, which include passing bad checks or misusing credit cards as well as more complex forms of fraud related to Medicaid, insurance or workers’ compensation. If you are charged with fraud or a related offense, our attorney will review financial documentation, work with forensic accountants, enlist the aid of experts and vigorously counter the prosecution’s charges in court.
