recognized and honored nationwide, the firm is a collaboration of some
of the most dynamic criminal attorneys in the state of Ohio, nationwide,
and in the nations abroad.
Raising the Bar with Creativity & Collaboration
The legal field of criminal prosecution is one founded upon concrete principles
and time-tested strategies. For this reason, an effective means of defending
against such prosecution is to use creative thinking and unique resources.
Ian N. Friedman and our team are trained to "think outside of the
box" in all cases. This approach has resulted in
repeated acquittals, dismissals, and reversals . This is the result of years of practicing criminal defense for some
of the most complex criminal matter.
