    Douglas Funkhouser can assit you with getting an expungement of your criminal records and can give you more information about Ohio's diversion program.

    Criminal records can severely affect your life. It can become increasingly difficult to apply to colleges and obtain employment. The freedom you once enjoyed may be at risk. You should be aware of your rights under the various Ohio laws governing criminal offenses.

    I started my criminal law experience as a prosecutor in the U.S. Army. I continue that practice today by representing clients charged with all levels of felony charges. As part of my criminal law practice, I received certification to handle Death Penalty cases in Ohio. I cannot emphasize enough that the more trial experience an attorney has in this area, the better representation clients receive. Before you hire any criminal defense attorney, ask them if they handle your type of case and how my times they tried that type of case to a jury. Hard work and preparation can make up for a lack of experience, but trial experience is an essential element for success. In addition to felony crimes, I also have extensive experience with misdemeanor criminal charges and traffic cases.
