When Reputation Matters

The Joslyn Law Firm is proud to be regarded as one of Ohio’s top criminal & DUI defense firms. Our firm’s managing lawyer, Brian Joslyn has been ranked Columbus CEO Magazine as a top criminal lawyer in Columbus. The National Trial Lawyers Association has nominated Mr. Joslyn as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer in the country. We pride ourselves on our legal accomplishments and strive to lead our legal community to a higher standard of criminal representation.

All criminal charges are serious. A conviction for any criminal offense can have devastating, lifelong effects on school enrollment, professional licenses, careers, finances, family and freedom. The worst mistake you can make is going it alone.

Do not think that if you plead guilty without an attorney, judges and prosecutors will give you a light sentence. The opposite is likely true. Hire a criminal law firm where the attorneys know the judges and prosecutors and know what needs to be argued to have your charges reduced or dismissed. Our lawyers have successfully handled thousands of criminal cases in federal, state, city, and mayors courts and routinely get charges dismissed.

Protecting You Like Our Own

Our goal from the beginning is to get your charged dismissed outright. We work with our clients and help identify every way to get the best possible results. That could mean negotiating with prosecutors to get deferred adjudication or vigorously making challenges to the constitutionality, veracity or sufficiency of the prosecutor’s evidence.

When faced with a criminal law matter, you want an advocate in your corner who is going to protect you and your best interests with no question. At the Joslyn Law Firm we represent our clients as if we were representing our own family members. We fight for the results our clients expect and deserve.

We take an aggressive, proactive approach and look for every option to get you the best outcome. Call Columbus criminal defense lawyers that care about you and your future. Call Joslyn Law Firm.

Ohio
Court System

Experienced in all central & southern Ohio courts

We have handled over 20,000 Cases in the central Ohio Courts. As a result we know the Judges, prosecutors and court personnel along with their preferences and intricacies. It is these invaluable relationships and knowledge of each court system that can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case. A good criminal lawyer will know each judge and each prosecutor and know what to expect from each. Judges have difference preferences and opinions on different matters. For example, while one judge might be willing to grant recognizance bond in a domestic violence case, another judge in the same court the next day may refuse to grant that kind of bond. It’s this kind of knowledge that can be the difference between going home or being stuck in jail. Put our vast experience in your corner.
