Criminal Defense (state and federal)

At Firestone, Brehm, Wolf, Whitney & Young LLP, we know your Constitutional rights, and we will advocate tirelessly on your behalf. Two of our attorneys are former state prosecutors and one of our attorneys is a former federal prosecutor. The experience gained by being prosecutors is priceless and it will benefit you when we defend you.

We represent criminal defendants in all local, state, and federal courts in Ohio from pre-charging through appeals. We have experience with the following types of local, state, and federal crimes:

Local and State Law Federal Crimes

  • Health Care Fraud
  • Driving Without a License
  • Bank and Credit Card Fraud
  • Assault and Battery
  • Tax Fraud

We believe in providing you the best advice and following your orders. If you want us to negotiate a plea agreement, we will negotiate the best possible deal based on our knowledge of the law and experience in dealing with the various agencies that prosecute crimes. If you want to exercise your Constitutional right to a trial, we will represent you zealously and persuasively. And, if your Constitutional rights were violated, we will find out and we will seek to suppress evidence and dismiss the charges.

If you are arrested or charged with a crime, you have a U.S. Constitution Fifth Amendment right—commonly known as the "Right to Remain Silent." It is a valuable right and you should take it seriously. You do not have to talk to the police. And, you have a right to a lawyer--an effective lawyer.

Whether you are innocent or guilty, our system of justice fails unless people charged with crimes are represented zealously and their attorneys put the government prosecutors to the test. We will do that for you.
