Because law enforcement agencies and prosecutors have extensive resources, it is best to have someone familiar with the system to advise you of your rights and to navigate the complex system for you. Retaining Chad K. Hemminger can help you even the odds.

Retaining the Best Attorney
Fair treatment in the system depends on the knowledge and skill of your attorney. Chad Hemminger, Esq., not only has extensive experience and a good track record with his cases, but he has also worked for the prosecution’s side.

Using his experience from working as an assistant prosecuting attorney in Ashland County, Ohio, and his many years as a defense attorney, he is able to work successfully in several criminal practice areas.

Criminal Defense Areas of Practice
Whether you are charged with a felony, misdemeanor, traffic violation, or have a criminal appeal, Chad Hemminger can help defend you. Types of cases he personally handles includes traffic offenses, OVI/DUI, violent crime cases, property crimes, white collar crimes and sex crimes. Depending on the type of felony and a person’s prior record, a felony may be punishable by any sentence from prison to the death penalty.

A misdemeanor is generally considered to be a less serious crime than a felony; however, the process is often just as intimidating. Chad tries to get most misdemeanors dismissed, but if he can’t, he will negotiate a plea or take the case to trial. If your case does have to go to trial, it is handled with the same care and attention to detail as a felony.

Most people don’t think that traffic violations are serious, but the points on your license do start to add up and will eventually affect your life. Traffic violations may cause you to have your license suspended, go to jail or even lose your job. Traffic violations include OVI, equipment violations, failure to obey traffic signals, driving with license suspended, not having a license, reckless operation, expired plates and more.

Juvenile delinquency and criminal appeals are two additional areas of expertise in our arsenal.
