Criminal Charges Are A Big Deal
Being arrested can be an overwhelming and scary experience. To fight your arrest and any criminal charges that may be filed, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer – they can protect your rights, freedom and future.
At Bentoff & Duber, we are dedicated to helping people charged with a crime take control of their situations. Whether you are facing state or federal charges, our firm uses years of experience and insight into the criminal justice system when seeking a dismissal, working with the prosecution to organize a plea agreement or taking the case to trial and letting a judge or jury decide.
Criminal Cases We Handle
Our firm stands by clients throughout the entirety of their felony and misdemeanor cases that involve a wide range of charges:
- Drunk driving (DUI/OVI)
- Drug offenses, including possession and sale/distribution
- Gun charges and other weapons offenses
- Property crimes, including theft, robbery and burglary
- Assault and battery
- Domestic violence and spousal abuse
- Juvenile offenses, such as shoplifting and vandalism
- Fraud, including credit card fraud, check fraud, insurance fraud and welfare fraud
- White collar crimes, such as embezzlement and money laundering
- And other alleged crimes
We can also represent you in bail and probation violation hearings – seeking to obtain your release on your own recognizance or on reduced bail.
In any criminal case, time is your most valuable asset.
Too many people who are arrested hesitate before seeking legal representation. Waiting too long can limit your options. A lawyer can help you enforce your right to remain silent, and can prevent you from making statements to law enforcement that you may later regret.
If you have been arrested, are under investigation or have been contacted by the police, you need a lawyer as soon as possible. Bentoff & Duber can advise you on how to respond to police inquiries and begin preparing your defense. At all stages of your case, our firm will work to defend your rights and preserve your freedom.
Our Criminal Defense Lawyers Mean Business
Before becoming a defense attorney, Brandon Duber worked as a prosecutor in Ohio for several years. This experience enables him to accurately assess the strengths and weaknesses of a prosecutor’s case. Once he makes this determination, he will then work to exclude evidence that was gathered illegally, or cast doubt on weaknesses of the state’s case.
In serious felony cases such as those involving assault or armed robbery, Bentoff & Duber frequently works with a private investigator, forensic evidence specialist, or professionals in other disciplines. These experts may be able to develop additional evidence not available to the prosecution and help bring about an acquittal.
