Don’t Face Your Criminal Charges Alone
When you face criminal charges, your future is at stake. Even minor charges can interfere with employment, education and housing in the future. The good news is that you don’t have to face your charges alone. Our attorneys at Conrad/Wood Law have decades of combined experience fighting on behalf of our clients throughout the central and southern Ohio area. We handle all levels of criminal offenses, from misdemeanors to felonies. Our reputation for success is well-known in the legal community.
The Importance Of A Strong Defense
No matter the type of case you face, you want to start building a strong defense strategy as soon as possible. The earlier your attorney can step up on your behalf, the better your chances of a positive outcome. Your freedom and your future are on the line. When you hire Conrad/Wood Law to represent you, our attorneys will immediately begin assessing evidence and fighting on your behalf.
We assist clients with a wide range of criminal charges. The most common charges we see include:
Operating a Vehicle while Impaired (OVI/DUI) – This may include allegations of driving after drinking alcohol or using drugs. Penalties depend on a number of factors, including prior arrests, but may include fines, mandatory jail time and a suspended license.
Drug offenses – From misdemeanor possession to felony drug trafficking, these charges could come in either state or federal court. Penalties depend on the type of drug and the amount in possession.
Domestic Violence charges – Allegations involving family members can have devastating ramifications including being removed from your home, orders restricting contact with your spouse and children, and temporary protection orders being granted restricting your ability to possess firearms. Do not walk into a courtroom alone when defending these types of charges.
Juvenile charges – Allegations against minors are typically tried in a juvenile court in Ohio. The system is different from the adult court and you will need an attorney who knows the juvenile court system.
These are just a few of the types of cases we see most often, but we certainly do not limit our criminal defense practice to these areas. Contact us to see how we can help fight the allegations against you or your loved one.
If you or a loved one have already been convicted of a crime, you may wonder what you can do now. Depending on the status of your case, we may be able to help you with the following:
- Appeals – In some cases, you may have grounds to appeal the outcome of the trial. You have a limited time to file an appeal, however, so contact us right away.
- Judicial release – You may qualify for early release from your prison sentence if your case meets certain guidelines.
- Expungement or sealing of criminal record – Conrad/Wood Law also helps clients who already have a criminal record. Ohio law allows you to clear convictions from your record and seal your file in certain cases.
Although these post-conviction options can make a big difference, they only apply under a specific set of circumstances. We can help you determine if they may be worth pursuing in your situation.
