Meet the Koffel Law Firm

OHIO CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYERS -
OHIO DUI / OVI ATTORNEYS

The Koffel Law Firm is one of the leading 100% privately retained Criminal / DUI law firms in Ohio. Our firm's managing attorney, Brad Koffel, has been voted to the list of "Best Lawyers in America" since 2008, and the firm is one of only three others in Ohio ranked in “Best Law Firms” for DUI/OVI defense.

The firm's docket typically includes cases pending in counties all across Ohio as well as the United States District Court, Southern District of Ohio in Columbus. In 1994, Attorney Brad Koffel opened his private practice in Upper Arlington, Ohio. Today, The Koffel Law Firm is a ten person practice group that has established itself as one of the most reputable and successful Criminal / DUI Defense practices in Ohio.

TOP 10 CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEYS

Brad Koffel is honored to have been selected as one of the Top 10 Criminal Defense Attorneys in Ohio by the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys (NACDA). Out of more than a million lawyers in the nation, being included in the Top 10 in the state for criminal defense is an honor.

Is the Koffel Law Firm
good fit for you?

  • Why do we have happy clients and extremely high rates of success?

    We start with only accepting cases and clients that we believe have the factors that point towards a favorable resolution. We are primarily interested in accepting clients who have no or very limited previous contact with the criminal courts. We are looking for cases that have a high potential for a favorable outcome in terms of treatment in lieu of conviction, diversion, misdemeanors, probation, and non-prison terms.

  • Who we Won’t Represent a clear understanding of a law firm's practice limits

    We do not accept violent deadly weapon crimes, acts of violence or sex crimes against children, habitual felons, or gang members. Our lawyers and staff will treat our client with utmost respect and dignity and we expect the same in return from a client. We will fire a client who mistreats or is rude to our staff. We will not represent a client who lies or misleads us.

  • We know what we do and you can read what we do.

    However, the best peace of mind you can find in hiring a lawyer is to hear from past clients. Some things our clients have said about retaining our firm - “The only one I’d want to represent me” and “You’ve helped me get a second chance at life” are just a few. We encourage anyone considering our firm to view our client testimonials.

Fast, Personal Service

The firm's bench strength is the rare personal touch that is hard to find with most professional services providers. Our 5 lawyers are always "on call" as is every single member of our professional support staff. Evenings, weekends, and even holidays, we will reply to client texts, email, and phone calls. We are available to non-clients for telephone interviews and fast assistance 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. 7 days a week. Once we accept a case, we offer retainers as low as $500 on certain cases and payment options to qualified clients. Most of our clients hire us over the phone and we are in court with them the next day or a few days later.

The Firm You
Can Turn To
For Help.

A Niche Firm With Low Retainers
and Payment Options

You may be surprised at how reasonable our retainers are. Depending upon the type of charge, county, and prior record, we are able to work out legal fees for 500 people per year. For qualified clients, we can offer payment terms.

From the very first phone call, we can immediately start listening and giving you quick feedback. Most clients feel lost in the maze. In all likelihood, what you are facing, we've seen before -- probably many times over. 614.675.4845

What sets
us apart

The Koffel Law Firm acts quickly, every day of the week, and every day of the year. If you or someone you care about is in jail, call us. We can probably get them out today. (To learn more about jail release, click Jail Release & Immediate Bond Hearings.) If you or someone you know has a court date right around the corner, we can most likely handle it. If you or someone you know has been contacted by a detective, call us before speaking to the detective. In all likelihood, we've seen your situation many, many times before. We have low retainers, connections with bail bondsmen, and we know all the judges and prosecutors quite well in the counties in which we practice. In Criminal / DUI law, being quick, connected, and reputable are the keys to success.

  • Same day & Next Day Appointments

    Because clients and their families are scared, we are specifically designed to get you in for a consultation immediately. We always have an attorney at the office with open office hours, Monday - Fridays. Call 614.675.4845 if you would like to come in for a meeting.

  • It’s not just what you know, it’s also who you know

    When you get arrested or are under investigation, you want a lawyer who knows the people on the other side - the police, the prosecutors and the judges. This is our bread and butter.

  • We are active in seeking sentencing alternatives, diversion & deferred prosecutions

    Many offenses and offenders may qualify for pre-indictment dispositions such as diversion. Post-indictment may permit intervention in lieu of conviction or non-prison sentencing alternatives. We are vocal and passionate about finding non-prison alternatives for our clients.
