Protect Your Rights in Ohio

You deserve to have someone on your side. If you are under investigation for a crime, have been arrested or have witnessed a crime, talk to a criminal defense lawyer before you say anything to the authorities.

We have more than three decades of experience defending adults and juveniles against misdemeanor and felony charges such as:

  • Assault and domestic violence
  • Possession, trafficking, manufacturing or distribution of cocaine, marijuana, amphetamines or prescription drugs
  • Sex offenses
  • Robbery, burglary, theft and other property crimes
  • Drunk driving (DUI) and other traffic offenses
  • White collar crimes such as forgery, embezzlement or bank fraud
  • Firearms charges
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Murder
  • Probation and parole violations

A conviction for a criminal charge can have serious consequences. We will fight on your side to protect your reputation and your freedom. We will work hard to help you avoid penalties such as jail time, losing your driver's or professional license including commercial driver's license (CDL), high fines, losing your voting rights or ability to carry firearms.

Commercial Driver's License

If you have a commercial driver's license, even a speeding ticket can impact your livelihood. A criminal conviction may result in the loss of your commercial driver's license. We will work to help you keep your CDL, and your job.

Our attorney has spent his entire career in the Cleveland area. We know the local criminal system, and we know the prosecutors and judges. We will aggressively negotiate on your behalf and are not afraid to take your case to court.

DUI and Traffic

Aggressive Traffic Defense in Cleveland, Ohio

Although they may seem less serious than other criminal charges, traffic offenses can have serious consequences. Whether you were arrested for drunk driving (DUI) or received a traffic ticket, an experienced criminal defense attorney can help you protect your rights.

At the Ohio law office of Joseph A. Kochis Co., L.P.A., we know how the traffic court system works, and we will aggressively defend you against traffic charges. With more than 30 years of criminal defense experience, we will explore all of your legal options and defend you in negotiation and litigation.

Any moving violation can cause significant problems for you. Whether you were issued a speeding ticket or accused of reckless driving or another traffic violation, we can help you protect your rights against higher insurance rates, fines and possibly losing your license. We will explore all of your legal options and develop a creative defense strategy that meets your needs.

Protecting You Against DUI Charges

Anyone, regardless of age or background, can be charged with DUI. These charges do not make you a bad person. Our experienced criminal defense lawyer will work hard to protect your reputation and your freedom.

We will work to minimize the immediate and long-term consequences of your drunk driving charges. As soon as you are arrested for DUI, your license will be suspended and your car will be impounded. We will guide you through the administrative process to get your driving privileges and car back.

When it comes to the criminal process, we will attack the evidence from every angle possible. Did the officer have probable cause to pull you over? Was the breath test properly utilized? The answers to these questions can make the difference in your case.

Serious Consequences for those with Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

If your job is dependent on maintaining a CDL, we understand that losing your license can have a devastating effect on your livelihood. We will work to minimize the immediate license suspension as we vigorously defend you against the criminal charges.

Personal Injury

Getting the Compensation You Deserve in Ohio

If you or someone you love was injured or killed because of a car accident, animal attack, medical malpractice or another instance of negligence or wrongdoing, you deserve to be compensated. Medical bills, lost wages and other damages can add up quickly. At the Ohio law office of Joseph A. Kochis Co., L.P.A., we will work hard to obtain payment for you and your family.

Put 30 Years of Ohio Personal Injury Experience on Your Side
Call 216-363-6050 to Schedule a Free Consultation

Anytime someone else's actions lead to a personal injury or wrongful death, they should be held accountable. We have represented clients who suffered from various situations, including the following:

  • Car, truck and motorcycle accidents

  • Premises liability or slip-and-fall

  • Work-related injuries

  • Dog bites

  • Nursing home negligence

  • Medical malpractice

Our attorney will put his experience to work for you if you or a loved one has suffered a wrongful death, loss of limbs, permanent injury, spinal injury, traumatic brain injury, broken bones or neck, back or shoulder injuries.

On Your Side Against the Insurance Companies

It can be tempting to negotiate with the insurance companies on you own, but this can lead to disastrous results. Insurance companies are ultimately not concerned with your well-being. They are worried about their own bottom line.

We have more than three decades of experience negotiating with insurance companies. We know how they will respond to certain arguments, and we will do everything we can to reach a fair settlement on your behalf. However, if they refuse to pay what you deserve, we will take your case to court.

Workers’ Compensation

Thorough, Experienced Workers' Comp Representation in Ohio

When you are injured at work, it is fair to expect your employer and their insurance company to pay for the related expenses. Unfortunately, injured employees in Ohio often struggle to get the compensation they deserve.

At the Cleveland law office of Joseph A. Kochis Co., L.P.A., we have 30 years of workers' compensation experience, helping clients get payment for wages, medical expenses and other damages.

We Work for the Compensation You Need
Call 216-363-6050 to Schedule a Free Consultation

Many employees do not know their rights. Our first priority is to help you get the care you need. Did you know that you can select the doctor of your choice? Many employers steer injured workers towards their own doctors. We will make sure that you are allowed to exercise your rights.

We will thoroughly investigate your situation and fight for all of the workers' compensation you deserve. Depending on the severity of your injury, you may be entitled to the following:

  • Continuation of wages

  • Payment for medical expenses

  • Permanent, partial or total disability awards

  • Additional payment for employer violations of safety standards

We have many contacts throughout Ohio, and we are able to bring in experts when necessary. Our clients frequently benefit from our vast experience with the Ohio workers' compensation system.
