Everyone is guaranteed the right to legal counsel when charged with a crime. This right is guaranteed by the Sixth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and by Article I, Section 10 of the Ohio Constitution.
This right is not to be taken lightly. In fact, recent decisions made by the Ohio Supreme Court have attempted to clarify what needs to happen before the waiver of one’s right to legal counsel is recognized as an intelligent and voluntary decision to ensure people are not foolishly giving up their civil liberties.
Choosing a Criminal Defense Attorney
Just because you have the right to legal counsel and are strongly encouraged to exercise it when facing criminal charges doesn’t mean it’s easy to find a criminal defense attorney. What should you look for?
Look for a criminal defense lawyer who is passionate about upholding your individual rights and liberties, has experience defending those accused of criminal activity and practices in your area and is familiar with local (municipal and common pleas) court policies and programs.
