Keeping Assault and Domestic Violence Issues Out of The Public Forum

In Ohio, local law enforcement and prosecutors take a hard line when responding to violent crime allegations or complaints. If a restraining order or assault charge has been filed against you, it is critical to retain a skilled attorney to protect your reputation, your constitutional rights and your future.

At McNamara & McNamee - Attorneys at Law, our criminal defense lawyers are proven litigators and negotiators, committed to resolving difficult criminal matters discretely. We are dedicated to mitigating the impact that an assault, rape or domestic violence charge can have on all facets of your life. When your privacy is a priority, our legal team is the one you want on your side.

Building A Strong Case to Defend Your Reputation

Effectively challenging a crime of violence charge takes diligence, creative strategizing and an extensive understanding of the law. We customize our approach for each client, regularly collaborating with area experts to design an argument that supports your side. Our team is well-equipped to challenge the state’s version of events, drawing on decades of criminal defense experience in courts throughout Ohio.

We defend adults and juveniles facing charges or allegations of:

  • Felonious Assault
  • Rape and Sexual assault
  • Domestic Violence
  • Simple, Negligent and Aggravated Assault
  • Violation of a Protection Order
  • Aggravated Menacing and Menacing
  • Menacing by Stalking and Staking
  • Permitting Child Abuse
  • Child Endangerment

Recent interpretations of Ohio’s “serious physical harm” standard have lowered the threshold for types of injuries that lead to Felonious Assault charges. As a result, you may be charged with this felony offense if the other party suffered even a slight injury that required medical attention. Imprisonment, restitution and fines may accompany a conviction for this type of offense.

Ready to Challenge Serious Violent Offense Charges

Murder and other serious violent offense charges are among the most difficult charges to resolve quietly. Our lawyers know that the stakes are high for individuals charged or accused of committing this type of crime. We are qualified to handle complex state and federal criminal matters that include:

  • Aggravated Murder, Murder and Felony Murder
  • Reckless Homicide and Negligent Homicide
  • Voluntary Manslaughter and Involuntary Manslaughter

Although we have compiled an impressive record of success, it is likely that you have never heard of our biggest legal victories. Using diplomacy and negotiation, we have secured many positive outcomes before our clients have had to endure trial proceedings.

As your advocates, we represent you, our clients, to the best of our ability and without judgment. We will explore all options to help you move on from your legal matter.
