Toledo Criminal Defense Attorneys
We Don’t Back Down from a Challenge
If you're involved in a criminal matter, you can expect that the prosecution will use all the resources at their disposal to obtain a conviction. Being found guilty, may mean that you're sentenced to prison, ordered to pay a fine, and / or placed on probation. You may also suffer collateral consequences (limitations and disabilities that are not imposed as part of your criminal penalties) that can change your life completely. When you're up against a formidable opponent and facing severe punishments, it's crucial that you level the playing field by retaining the services of a lawyer who will fight relentlessly for you.
At Friedman Nemecek & Long, L.L.C., our Toledo criminal defense attorneys have extensive legal experience. In fact, we are so well-versed in the law that judges and other lawyers seek us out for insight and advice. Members of our firm serve as legal educators and analysts, have authored books on criminal law, and have served as counsel both nationally and internationally. Additionally, we have handled numerous matters in various areas and work as a team on each case we take on to deliver unmatched legal services and a client experience like no other. When you hire us, you will benefit from our diverse knowledge and skills.
Effective Throughout Your Case
From the moment you're arrested for an alleged offense, the decisions you make can profoundly affect the outcome of your case. For instance, a well-meaning comment made to defend your innocence during an interrogation can be misconstrued and used as evidence against you, strengthening the prosecution's case. That is why it's imperative that you speak with one of our attorneys as soon as possible.
At FriedmanNemecek & Long, L.L.C. Attorneys, we know the laws concerning your rights and the tactics used by law enforcement officials and prosecutors to build cases against defendants. We will advise you on how to proceed with your matter and will do everything in our legal power to protect your best interests and freedoms.
We deliver high-quality legal representation in Toledo for various types of legal matters, including:
- Computer crimes
- Internet crimes
- Phishing crimes
- Domestic violence offenses
- Drug crimes
- DUIs / OVIs
- Juvenile crimes
- Title IX cases
- Traffic violations
Our criminal defense attorneys are also skilled negotiators and litigators. Thus, if your case can be settled through a plea bargain with the prosecutor, we will aggressively negotiate on your behalf. However, if necessary, we'll also be prepared to take your case to trial and present your defense in front of a judge or jury.
Representation You Can Trust
Although criminal matters may go through similar processes, we know that each case is not the same. We will treat you like an individual and listen to your side of the story to develop a strategy tailored to your specific needs. Whenever you have a question or concern, you can call us, email us, or see us in person, and we'll provide the answers and guidance you need.
Regardless of the complexity of your case, we'll thoroughly prepare, examine all evidence, and review relevant case law to build an aggressive defense. Throughout our years of practice, we have obtained victories for past clients, including getting charges dropped and cases dismissed. We will work hard toward doing the same for you.

I was facing life in prison for a crime I did not commit. After an initial conviction during a bench trial, Ian was able to get me a new trial based upon previously undiscovered evidence and I was found not guilty by a jury at the second trial almost immediately upon beginning deliberations. Ian saved my life.- Former Client
