Dayton Criminal Attorneys

Dayton Criminal Attorneys

Movies and TV shows usually imply that prosecutors are concerned with fairness and justice. Usually, that is not the case. For the most part, prosecutors are only interested in convictions, because that is the only way to move up the corporate ladder. Prosecutors have almost unlimited resources to back up their aggressive nature. The combination is often overwhelming.

The dedicated Dayton criminal attorneys at the Comunale Law Office cannot match the prosecutor’s resources. No defense attorney can do that, but our professional team matches, or exceeds, the prosecutor’s commitment. We are passionate about your individual rights, and we will fight to defend them. That is the kind of Dayton criminal attorney you need in your corner.

Criminal Matters We Handle

There is no such thing as minor surgery if you are the patient, and there is no such thing as a minor criminal infraction if you are the defendant. All criminal cases have severe direct and collateral consequences. So, rather than focus on one or two offense areas, the professionals at the Comunale Law Office routinely handle a vast array of criminal defense matters, such as:

  • Assault: Frequently, assaults are verbal confrontations that went too far, so these arrests are quite common. There are several levels of assault, from low-level misdemeanors to extremely serious felonies. All these offenses have severe direct and collateral consequences.
  • Alcohol-Related Offenses: The most common alcohol-related offense is DUI. In fact, about half the probationers in Montgomery County were convicted of this offense. Other infractions include underage drinking and public intoxication.
  • White Collar Crimes: Infractions like bribery, embezzlement, and fraud usually combine theft with dishonesty. So, these offenses can easily ruin careers.
  • Drug Charges: Drug possession cases make up over 80% of these prosecutions. These cases have many moving parts and are difficult to prove in court. Trafficking and distribution offenses have many moving parts as well, mostly because they usually involve extensive law enforcement investigations.

These are just a few highlights. Our professionals routinely handle all aspects of all misdemeanors and felonies in Montgomery County and nearby jurisdictions. 

Most cases have both procedural and substantive defenses. Procedural defenses usually involve the lack of a search warrant or improper police procedures. Substantive defenses typically revolve around a lack of evidence. The state must prove every element of every offense beyond any reasonable doubt. That is the highest standard of proof in Ohio law.

Post-Conviction Relief

At the Comunale Law Office, we do not stop fighting for you once the judge’s gavel falls. Many of our clients are entitled to post-conviction relief, which helps them put their criminal pasts behind them.

Record expungement is normally available, even if the defendant has a prior criminal record. Once a statutory waiting period expires, a Dayton criminal attorney can have the record sealed. These records are invisible to most people and groups, such as family, friends, landlords, and potential employers.

Former sex offenders are often eligible for delisting. Judges frequently reclassify these individuals, so their information is not publically available.
