After graduating from Miami University (1990) and Capital Law School (1993), Mr. Koffel began his career as a solo practitioner right out of law school handling all types of criminal cases. Over the past 20 years, his private practice grew into a 6-lawyer boutique criminal law firm consisting of a full time in-house private investigator, an alcohol-drug treatment specialist, and two trusted paralegals that have been with him for most of his career.
