Aggressive Criminal Defense By Former Prosecutors & Police Can Make A Difference

At Suhre & Associates we offer a team of three former prosecutors and an Ohio Police Officer to defend our clients. We diligently, and aggressively, protect our clients from charges ranging in severity from minor misdemeanors to high level felonies and Federal charges as well.

As Akron Criminal Lawyers, we understand how emotionally draining your situation can be. You likely understand that any conviction can result in major, life altering, penalties: years in prison, huge monetary fines, a negative social stigma and lack of employment down the road.

Because you understand all of that we offer a no pressure, no obligation, consultation – for free – to all of our potential clients. We promise to take your call, and listen to your specific and unique situation. If we have the time to take on your case we promise to immediately begin fighting to protect your rights.


I understand, having been on both sides of the criminal system, how much of a life altering impact a felony (and even a misdemeanor) conviction can have on your life. A felony conviction probably means you will lose your job. If you lose your job you will probably lose your house. And if you lose your house, you’re family will suffer.

Because we understand how devastating these convictions can be on you, we fight like we’re representing a family member.

We are criminal trial attorneys. And we understand that attorneys sometimes get a bad reputation – for not returning calls, not being prepared, or being late. We are the exact opposite. In fact, you can search our names on the internet and find out what our past clients say about us. We are trial attorneys – we are always prepared, we are always on time, and we always return phone calls. You are paying us for a professional service, and as your Akron Criminal Attorney…. we’ll deliver.

Call us at 330-510-5668 for free, no-pressure free, no-obligation consultation.
