The Mayer Law Firm Columbus

Columbus Criminal Defense Attorney

Former Felony Prosecutor Defending Your Rights

Have you been arrested for a crime in Columbus, Ohio? My firm is here to help you. Experience is key when it comes to choosing a criminal defense lawyer. You should make sure to select a seasoned trial attorney who has experience handling even the most complex of criminal cases. This is exactly what I have to offer at my law firm, The Mayer Law Firm. I am a Columbus criminal defense lawyer who has 18 years of criminal law experience and a track record of more than 50 trials. Furthermore, I have a comprehensive understanding of both sides of the criminal justice system, since I am a former assistant Franklin County felony prosecutor. I have become known throughout North Central Ohio for my excellent skills as both a negotiator and a trial advocate. Many of my cases originate from referrals from past clients, as well as from other attorneys. I am prepared to represent clients in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas, the Franklin County Municipal Court, the Franklin County Juvenile Court, as well as federal cases in the Southern District of Ohio. I worked and lived in Columbus, Ohio for more than a decade and the Mayer Law Firm has offices located at 326 S. High Street, Columbus, Ohio, directly across the street from the new courthouse.

Whether you are facing state charges or federal charges, I can provide you with strategic legal representation. In addition to being licensed to practice in Ohio's state courts, I have also been admitted to practice in the Northern and Southern districts of the federal courts of Ohio. If at all possible, I urge you to consult with me before you are formally charged (during the pre-indictment stage). In each case I handle, I meticulously scour the evidence, I review all state or federal laws that are relevant to the case and I strategize the most effective way to protect the client's freedom.

Defense for a Diverse Range of Criminal Cases

I provide criminal defense for a full scope of misdemeanors and felonies. I handle criminal matters that range from simple traffic offenses to the most serious federal crimes, such as drug trafficking. I am equipped to handle cases that stem from charges of juvenile crimes, OVI/DUI, drug crimes, sex offenses and much more. Are you looking to get a record of a previous conviction sealed through an expungement? I provide assistance with this as well.
