Nobody Talks, Everybody Walks. Ohio criminal defense lawyer with nearly 40 years experience

“When I was arrested by the Feds on Drug Conspiracy charges, they told me I was facing mandatory life in federal prison without the possibility of parole. I knew that I was innocent, but I was scared . . . so I knew that I would have to find a lawyer who was not afraid of the Feds and would take my case to trial. I chose Greg Robey because he is a fighter. After over 2 weeks in a federal jury trial, I was found Not Guilty of all charges. My family and I am forever grateful to Mr. Robey.” -L.B., Mansfield, Ohio

Myths About the Criminal Justice System

If you are like most people, you are not concerned with the criminal justice system unless you find yourself under its supervision. Thanks to the Internet and other media sources, many myths exist regarding the criminal justice process (CJP).

  • Once you are arrested, police can do whatever they want. Even if police arrest you for committing a violent crime, you still have certain rights. For example, you have the right to remain silent and to request a lawyer. If police violate any of your rights, be sure to speak to a skilled attorney as soon as possible.
  • An OVI charge is not that serious. At one time, drunk driving may not have been penalized harshly but that time is long gone. Even first time offenders can face jail time, fines and other penalties.
  • You can’t beat a DUI or OVI charge. Yes, you can. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest and case, your lawyer may be able to have the charges against you reduced or dropped.
  • If you cannot afford a lawyer, the state will hire a private attorney for you. If you cannot afford an attorney, the state will provide you with a public defender — a far cry from a private criminal defense lawyer.

If you or your family member is arrested for any type of criminal offense, seek experienced legal help. A criminal law attorney can provide you with sound advice and guidance on how to build a solid defense strategy.
