Dayton Criminal Defense Lawyers

Dayton Criminal Defense Lawyers

Ever since its founding in 1796, the Gem City has been a center of innovation and commerce. Over the years, the U.S. Patent Office has issued more patents per capita in Dayton than anyplace else in the country. Some notable ones include the Wright Brothers’ aircraft and John Henry Patterson’s cash register. On a related note, as the area’s heavy manufacturing has declined, Dayton has recast itself as a service industry hub.

These innovations have affected the criminal justice process, as well. For example, law enforcement agencies use a number of controversial tools, like Stingray cell phone tower simulators, to enforce laws. Most criminal courts focus on plea bargains instead of trials. In a way, they sometimes resemble the factories that once dominated this area, but instead of churning out manufactured goods, they churn out “justice.”

The assertive Dayton criminal defense lawyers at the Comunale Law Office have also embraced innovation and adaptation. We cannot hope to match the unlimited resources of police and prosecutors, so we use the latest technological tools to work smarter instead of harder. We also adapt our approach to specific situations and clients because criminal defense is never a matter of one-size-fits-all.

Jail Release

Prompt jail release sets the stage for a successful resolution. If the defendant remains behind bars, a Dayton criminal defense lawyer only has limited options. Jail release opens up a world of defensive possibilities.

Many non-violent offenders are eligible for pretrial release. OR (Own Recognizance) release essentially makes sense for misdemeanors like traffic tickets. The defendant agrees to appear at trial, and the sheriff releases the defendant from custody.

Cash bail or a surety bond might be available, as well. Frequently, our Dayton criminal defense lawyers can walk families through the cash bail process or arrange for a low-cost surety bond.

Furthermore, at the Comunale Law Office, we also handle bail reduction hearings. If the defendant cannot get out of jail, at the arraignment, the judge considers a wide range of factors in the bail reduction phase. These factors focus on the defendant’s ability to pay and the perceived threat the defendant poses to the community.

Types of Matters We Handle

There is no such thing as minor surgery if you are the one going under the knife, and there is no such thing as a minor criminal case if you are the defendant. So, at the Comunale Law Office, our Dayton criminal defense lawyers handle a wide array of cases, including:

  • Drug Charges: The War on Drugs, which began in the 1960s, is by no means over. Police officers still arrest thousands of people for drug charges, mostly drug possession. A minuscule amount of a controlled substance, including a prescription pain pill, could mean felony charges.
  • Assault/Domestic Violence: Frequently, these cases are heated disagreements that get slightly out of hand. Prosecutors are not very sympathetic in these situations. Instead, they pursue the most aggressive charges the facts could possibly support.
  • DUI: Driving Under the Influence cases typically dominate the dockets in most Montgomery County courthouses. These offenses have severe direct and collateral consequences.
  • Theft Crimes: These offenses range from simple smash-and-grab retail theft to large Ponzi schemes, which affect thousands of victims. The range of punishment varies accordingly.  

At the Comunale Law Office, we take a similar approach to all these cases. We work hard and never stop fighting for you.
