Serving Columbus and the Surrounding Areas
Any successful Columbus criminal attorney practicing court must have a number of skills in order to provide his client the best possible representation. At the Scott and Nolder Law Firm, we educate our clients about the Columbus criminal justice system, objectively evaluate the government’s case, brainstorm the government’s case with our clients, formulate sound and realistic trial strategies, craft motions that frame factual and legal issues that need presented, effectively represent our clients at jury trials, zealously represent clients at sentencing and revocation hearings, and represent clients on appeal, in §2255 litigation, and at international consent verification hearings.
If you are charged with a crime, your first step should be to contact a criminal lawyer about your case. Your attorney will work with you every step of the way to ensure the legal process is carried out correctly and your rights are protected, regardless of whether or not your case goes to trial. At the Scott & Nolder Law Firm, our practice is limited to criminal defense in state and federal courts in Ohio.
Your Rights during a Criminal Case
As the defendant in a criminal case, you have several rights that must be upheld. Part of your criminal lawyer’s job is to ensure these rights are observed throughout any investigation, trial, and sentencing.
- You have the right to seek the representation and legal aid of a criminal law attorney. This attorney must have an understanding of criminal law and provide adequate representation.
- You have the right to remain silent, which means you cannot be forced to admit guilt or testify at any point during your case unless you wish to do so.
- You may not be put on trial twice for the same offense.
Why You Need an Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney
A criminal conviction can affect you for years to come, regardless of the severity of your sentence. You may find trouble when applying for employment or housing in the future, and your conviction may also affect your family and other social relationships. If you are charged with any type of crime, major or minor, a criminal law attorney will help you understand your situation and your options, which include reaching an arrangement outside of court or appealing a sentence. Your lawyer will also represent your rights and your best interests during legal discussions for the best possible outcome, even if you are found guilty.
