Oakwood Criminal Defense Attorney

Oakwood Criminal Defense Attorney

Here in the former home of aviation pioneer Orville Wright, most people strive to live quiet lives, work hard, and do right for their families. These values are apparent in Oakwood’s architecture as well as its people. Many area homes date back to the early 20th century, especially on the historic west side of town.

These values also sustain the Oakwood criminal defense attorneys at the Comunale Law Office. From the moment you reach out to us, we start preparing your defense. This strategy accounts for both the facts of your case and the applicable law. Then, we take immediate steps to protect your rights. Through it all, we proactively communicate with you. This simple formula often produces results that exceed our clients’ expectations.

Types of Criminal Cases Our Oakwood Criminal Defense Attorneys Handle

We are not the only people at work on your case. The state has a posse of lawyers, backed by investigators and other professionals, whose only goal is your conviction. Furthermore, prosecutors have almost unlimited financial resources. So, the legal fight is not a fair one unless you have an assertive attorney in your corner. Since we are concerned about the welfare of regular people in Oakwood, we handle a wide array of cases, including:

  • DUI: In many Ohio jurisdictions, driving under the influence cases account for about half the probationers in the county. In other words, prosecutors are very aggressive in this area. So, we challenge the evidence of intoxication and stand up for you in court.
  • Assault: Many times, assault prosecutions result from arguments that became a bit too heated. Once the dust settles, there may be little evidence of wrongdoing. So, these cases often settle out of court on favorable terms.
  • Drug Possession: These matters account for about 85% of all drug cases in Montgomery County. Police officers mistakenly believe these cases are easy to prove. But unless prosecutors establish every element of “possession” beyond a reasonable doubt, the charges will not hold up in court.
  • Sex Crimes: Many times, the indirect results of a sex crime conviction, such as public shame and sex offender registration, are worse than the direct consequences. So, our Oakwood criminal defense attorneys work hard to chip at the state’s case and reduce these consequences as much as possible.

We routinely handle other misdemeanors and felonies as well, from seemingly minor traffic tickets to the most serious murders and other violent crimes. At the Comunale Law Office, no case is too big, and no case is too small.

What to Expect in a Montgomery County Criminal Matter

Jail release is our immediate priority. If the defendant is incarcerated, the presumption of innocence essentially becomes a presumption of guilt. A variety of jail release options are available, including Own Recognizance (OR) release in many cases.

When the case goes to court, we typically file pretrial motions which assert important procedural defenses, like the lack of a proper search warrant or the failure to timely warn the defendant about certain matters.

Most Montgomery County criminal cases settle out of court at this point. That settlement could include deferred disposition probation. This outcome produces no lasting criminal conviction record.
