Attorney Michael J. Goldberg has defended the accused in northeast Ohio since 1989.

Know Your Rights. Assert Them. Protect Them.

The United States and Ohio constitutions guarantee basic rights to every citizen accused of a crime. Those rights include but are not limited to:

  • The right to remain silent
  • The right to consult an attorney before answering questions and at all stages of your case
  • The right to reasonable bail in non-capital cases
  • The right to grand jury process
  • The right to due process
  • The right to be presumed innocent
  • The right to have the government prove your guilt "beyond a reasonable doubt"
  • The right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures
  • The right to a trial by a jury of your peers

The police and prosecutors are not concerned with your rights or your life. We are.

Committed To Your Rights, Your Freedom And Your Future

State and federal law enforcement agencies sometimes overstep their authority. The constitutions of Ohio and the U.S. were designed to protect your rights against government intrusion. However, the only way to take full advantage of your inalienable rights as an American is through the aggressive representation by a well-prepared lawyer experienced in criminal defense.

There is a big difference in how attorneys are treated at the courthouse if the judge and opposing counsel know that those attorneys will take a case to a jury. Not every case can be tried, but you have a better chance of a favorable result with a lawyer who is known for going to trial.

There is no substitute for 30 years of experience and 200 cases tried to jury verdict. To arrange a free consultation with our Cleveland criminal law attorney, call The Goldberg Law Firm today at 216-592-8719 or 800-845-4710, or contact us online.
