20+ Years of Collective Legal Experience on Your Side

Have you been arrested? Are you facing serious criminal charges? Don't fight your accusations alone! You need experienced and proven legal counsel in your corner. Whether you are being investigated for a crime or have already been charged, it is crucial that you start building your defense today. At the law firm of Bleile & Dawson, we put our years of combined experience to work for our clients in Ohio and Northern Kentucky.

In the world of criminal defense litigation and laws, everything can seem quite bleak as the criminal justice system insists you have done wrong and must be punished. At our law firm, we deliberately keep our outlook positive because we know the last thing you need is more discouragement. The truth of the matter is that your case has a strong chance of success if you take the initiative to defend yourself.

Prearrest Success to Keep Things Simple

At Bleile & Dawson, we know that there is no one way to win a criminal defense case, and that every moment counts when it comes to crafting your defense. This does not only include what happens in the jailhouse or the courtroom; acting quickly can mean successfully preventing your arrest from every occurring. We have taken up an intentional focus on prearrest cases, providing proactive defense strategies that not many other defense firms in the country can offer. Benefits of a successful case with prearrest representation include no arrest on your criminal record; saves you time spent in county jail; eliminates costly court fees; and fast resolution – no stress!

We feel it is important to encourage this sort of legal advocacy, not only because it allows our clients a simpler way to handle criminal violation accusations but also because not many people in Ohio even know this is an option. If you were to believe the criminal justice system or law enforcement agencies, you would always have to wait for handcuffs to be placed on your wrists before seeking legal assistance. This is simply not the case and it is to your benefit, and the opposition’s disadvantage, for you to make the first move.

Supportive and Constructive Sex Crime Defense Lawyers

Another legal area we focus on here at our Cincinnati criminal defense law firm is sex crimes. Our nation is incredibly sensitive to any sex crime allegations and the accused are often hit with negative stigma and a biased light that shines not in their favor. Our attorneys believe that this “judge first, try second” mentality towards sex offenders is unjust, tipping the legal system unfairly and ignoring much of our country’s own principles.

With thorough investigations and by working closely with our clients, we have discovered that many sex crime allegations are based on clear exaggerations, muddled misunderstandings, or, worst of all, completely falsified claims. This ties back to our ability to give you prearrest representation. If you suspect that someone is going to accuse you of a sex crime, regardless of how much evidence there may or may not be, you should talk to us right away. With us by your side from the moment the police arrive at your door, you can feel confident that your future is bright and that your chances of securing a beneficial outcome are high.
