About Koffel Brininger Nesbitt
KBN is one of the leading 100% privately retained Criminal / DUI law firms in Ohio. For years, our law firm has been chosen as one of the 2022 “Best Law Firms in America” by U.S. News and our founding attorney, Brad Koffel, has been listed as one of the “Best Lawyers in America” since 2008.
Our attorneys have also been recognized with the following awards and honors:
- AV Preeminent™ on Martindale-Hubbell®
- Ohio Super Lawyers®
- Top 10 Criminal Defense Attorneys in Ohio (NACDA)
Our firm is located in Columbus, Ohio, but we frequently represent clients throughout Central Ohio and statewide, including the following counties: Franklin County, Fairfield County, Ashland County, Delaware County, and beyond. Our central location gives us easy access to represent clients in all major courts, including Mayor’s Courts.
Each year, our lawyers accept cases ranging from underage drinking and DUI to embezzlement and aggravated vehicular homicide in counties up to two hours away. The firm does not charge by the hour nor does it charge a "travel fee" to go to distant Ohio counties. If the case and client meet our parameters, we will do what it takes to help the client.
What You Get by Working with Our Firm
Evidence of how we represent our clients can be found in the following statistic --the majority of our clients are referred by other attorneys, clients, police officers, and court personnel. Once we accept a client's case, we encourage our clients to text or email the lawyers or staff, even on weekends and evenings. Communication is critical to a healthy and positive experience when going to court with a lawyer.
How to Choose a Columbus Criminal Defense Lawyer
Not all attorneys are equal. Being able to say, "I've seen this exact scenario before and I know how to deal with it" is worth its weight in gold in criminal and DUI cases. With more than 15,000 former clients under our belt, it is a rare day when we "haven't seen this before". Experience brings wisdom. Wisdom leads to maximizing a client's legal outcome inside a criminal courtroom.
If you or someone you know has been charged with a crime in Ohio and the charge is serious to you, then it is highly recommended that you retain a law firm that is established, reputable, has a veteran support staff, and makes you feel comfortable.
