Theft/Forgery Defense

A theft or forgery charge can have serious negative implications on your record, future employment, and can lead to severe penalties, including excessive fines or jail time. If you face theft, forgery, burglary, or even simple shoplifting charges, you need an attorney who will investigate the charges and evidence, identify weaknesses in the government’s case and develop the best strategy for you. We will seek to protect your freedom, reputation and financial security.

Domestic Violence Defense

Domestic violence is a crime committed by one family member against another. It includes charges such as simple, aggravated or felonious assault, stalking, menacing and other charges. It can occur between spouses, boyfriends and girlfriends, children, parents and elderly members of a household. If you have been charged with domestic violence, it is extremely important to consult a skilled criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

Drug Crime Defense

In Ohio, drug charges can carry heavy fines, jail time and a loss of driving privileges. To protect your rights, you should retain an experienced Ohio drug crime lawyer soon after a drug arrest. Many drug charges are felonies, but even possession of a small amount of marijuana can cause a six-month driver’s license suspension. Felony drug offenses also have the potential to result in forfeiture of money or property.

What to Expect at the Law Office of Philip Eichorn

Getting the charges dismissed is our primary goal. If you are innocent, you need an attorney who can prevent a conviction. If you are guilty, we will work to minimize the penalties you face.

Depending on your history, we can try to get you into a diversion program. This may allow you to plea down the charges associated with your crimes or even get the entire case against you dismissed and expunged. We can help ensure your rights are protected during this experience and give you a great chance to stay out of jail.

The American Immigration Lawyers Association and the American Immigration Council applaud the Supreme Court’s decision in Padilla v. Kentucky. This landmark case bestows the right to competent advice and counsel as to the risk of deportation for any guilty plea entered by a foreign national. The Supreme Court of the United States will hear a case later this year to determine if the Padilla holding is retroactive.
