Akron Criminal Defense Lawyer

You’ve Been Charged With A Crime


Being charged with a crime is a terrifying moment in your life.

You may feel like the whole world is against you. Even the name of the case says the entire State of Ohio or even the United States Government is lined up against you. These cases are not John Doe v. Jane Doe, they are The United States v. YOU!

Because it’s the local, state, or federal government against you, it’s important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney in your corner that has been in big battles. This fight is the government against you, and it’s extremely difficult to win that fight alone. You’re going to face prosecutors, the police, their investigators, detectives, crime labs, and all the resources they have at their disposal.

The Cost of Criminal Charges

How much will this cost? It’s one of the first questions people ask when they’ve been charged with a crime. The straight answer is it will cost a lot when you consider missing work, court costs, fines, damage to your reputation, and the impact on what you will be able to do and earn in the future.

When it comes to the cost of hiring an attorney to defend you, it may seem expensive at first. However, the cost of not having an experienced criminal law attorney on your side fighting for you will most likely be much higher.

When you’re charged with a crime and convicted, you will be facing significant monetary fines, increased insurance costs, and lost income both now and in the future because of your criminal record.

Considering what’s at stake and the impact on your life, hiring a criminal defense attorney can be one of the best investments you can make to minimize the huge potential negative consequences that you are facing when charged with a crime.

The Public Defender

The next question people ask is why should I hire a private criminal defense attorney if I can get the public defender for free?

First of all, public defenders are often not free. You may be ordered to pay the costs of the public defender to the county as part of your court costs.

Second, the public defender may not be a good fit for you. Many public defenders are fantastic attorneys, however, your view of the case and theirs may not match. They may not have the aggressive attitude you’re looking for in a lawyer. When you hire  Attorney Sean Buchanan, you will have the trust and confidence you want in a lawyer.

How Do I Pay For This?

The final question people typically ask is how can I pay for this?

We offer a variety of options including cash, checks, credit cards and payment plans. Whatever type of payment, you can take comfort and have confidence knowing that we are dedicated to you and are determined to see your case through to the end. We will be the ones fighting aggressively for you, arguing emphatically in your defense and standing next to you when the final verdict is read. We do not take cases only to hound you for small payments and then dump the case later if you can’t keep paying us. That’s simply not the way we operate.
