Words cannot express...
It has taken me more than a week to gather my thoughts and feelings as to how I can describe my experience with Meredith Ziebold. Words really cannot express what she has done for my family and I during these trying times. I was facing some very serious charges that would have taken me away from my family for a long time. From our initial meeting, a few things were glaringly evident: highly professional, very down to earth, extremely concerned about my family and our welfare, and an uncommon trait of being straightforward. I left that meeting with a full understanding of what the gravity of my situation was, how she planned to strategize and attack it, and what my roles and responsibilities were to be throughout the process. What I proceeded to witness over the next 6 months was a tenacious and diligent approach to my case, with a complete feeling of always being in the loop and prepared for each phase of our plan. It has been a very difficult process to manage a family and all of the concerns of a pending felony indictment, but there is no way we could have held on or held together without the overwhelmingly vital role that Meredith has played in our lives and our well being. To say that we are forever grateful and indebted to her, although totally true, seems like such a failing expression of our deep appreciation for not only her skill set and patience, but of her complete caring and concern for us, as people, throughout this whole process. There will never be enough time or words to convey this message completely, but we hope she always knows that we love her and would never trust anyone else with any legal matters. She has become an extended part of our family and, because of her, I can raise my newborn and be here for the rest of my family! In summary, this was a situation where I realized that just having an attorney wasn't enough! It all had to do with having the right attorney with all of the giftings, abilities, and people skills to tackle a case of this magnitude. In one sentence: she under promised, and totally over delivered! She is the absolute best and I wish that everyone's family had the privilege of being represented by her. She concluded my case with such a favorable outcome, and brought such a level of peace to our household. Thank you Meredith, and we love you! Alric and Family P.S. I am forever available as a reference.

Meredith Saved My Life
Recently I found myself in a legal jam. I went online in search of a lawyer and I found Meredith Ziebold's website. On her web page she spoke to legal situations in a very personal and humanistic way. I knew right then she was who I needed to represent me. When met with and explained my situation she told me she has had lot of success in getting favorable resolutions in cases such as mine but couldn't guarantee anything but assured me she would she would do everything in her power to obtain a favorable outcome. Well she got the case dismissed and record expunged before I was ever booked. Can't get any favorable than that. Thank You Meredith.

Do yourself a favor and hire Meredith Mochel
I came to Meredith after having a difficult experience with other attorneys. I felt hopeless. One criminal case unraveled and become two criminal cases. A civil case was later added to the mix. I felt overwhelmed and It seemed like I was dumping a really big mess in her lap for her to have to sift through. She was unfazed. She was very knowledgeable and experienced. I knew five minutes into the consultation with her that there was no way in the world I could walk out of her office and not retain her. More than once along the way there was a real danger of incarceration and other punitive actions. Meredith was confident, able, and fearless. She is a warrior. She is certain. She is not a quitter. She probably would be successful as a women's MMA cage fighter. I could see as she interacted with other attorneys that they knew who she was and had a healthy level of respect, fear, and admiration for her. Several things I particularly enjoyed about Meredith was her humility in regards to herself, the empathy she showed for my situation, and how respectful she was to me and towards others. I retained Meredith for three different cases. It was a nightmare. But by the time she was through, all three cases were dismissed and I walked away with a clean record and a heavy load lifted off my shoulders.

Extremely well versed and educated on Criminal Law. She saved my life bc of her experience and knowledge
I was in a very terrifying and troubling point in my life with a legal matter but Meredith came in and broke my situation down in the most legal and ethical way possible. She is very careful, precise, and calculated on her advice to her client and when she talks with the police/authorities. She also has access to numerous different resou and people that can help assist in one’s case. I highly recommend her

Wonderful Attorney
I hired Meredith Mochel to help with a DUI charge. Throughout the months long process, Meredith was always there for me. When the case finally came before the court, Ms. Mochel disposed of the charges. I highly recomend her to anyone who needs a DUI or DWI attorney.

DUI charge for sleeping while driving
Meredith was understanding and confident during the entire process of fighting my case. She believed in me and gave me assurance the entire time that she would resolve this issue. Ms. Ziebold indeed did resolve my issues satisfactorily and I would recommend her to anyone with a similar circumstance.

A lawyer with Genuine concern for her clients
Ms Ziebold dealt with all issues with earnest and legitimate care. We were not treated like robots that were giving funds for the next vacation. She is knowledgeable of current tristate laws governing options for legal and criminal offenses. I highly recommend Merideth Ziebold to defend and stand for your rights in any Court of Law.

Great lawyer
Last year I got Ms. Meredith Ziebold to defend me. After reading all her reviews. Even the bad ones. As a business owner I know there will always be someone unhappy with something. But when I contacted the office Meredith asked me to come and talk about my case on a Sunday! I look at that as dedication. She ia serious about her clients. She is a very strong. stern women who knows what she is doing. Always honest no beating around the bush straight forward with what's going on. Although we are still dealing with the situation at hand and the harrassment that i have had she is on top of it. I can text/call her anytime and she gets back to me pretty quick. I would and have recommend Meredith to anyone I know or anyone who asks if I know a good lawyer.

You Need Someone Like Meredith to Represent You
I faced a criminal charge and future court date and was unsure of what lie ahead. Before I met with Meredith, she had already gathered information about my arrest and talked to the arresting officer. When we met, she explained the legal system, the legal process and my rights. She was knowledgeable, sincere and caring in her approach. No lawyer can promise you anything, but with Meredith I knew I had an attorney who would do everything she could to get a successful resolution to my case. My outcome was far better than I could have imagined thanks to Meredith.

HIGHLY recommend Meredith!
Meredith went over and beyond normal practice and is a great negotiator. She took the time to listen to my case and develop an action plan. Meredith was able to reduce my charges and will remove them from my record following a probationary period. I would recommend Meredith to anyone who needs legal counsel following a DUI charge.

Excellent Lawyer
I had gotten in some very serious problems a while back and because of my past criminal history the DA was being more harsh towards my of all my current charges. Luckily I had one of the best lawyers in Hamilton County and she made me feel more at ease and confident that this will be solved in a very favorable manner. Meredith and her team worked my case tirelessly and my serious charges were resolved with no jail time and no felonies. I was able to keep my job and move on with my life. God is good and he works through people like this woman here! I give her 10 stars out of 5 because she helped me rekindle my faith in this judicial system.

Meredith is AMAZING
Meredith and her team are absolutely top notch. They were nothing short of honest, transparent, and showed true integrity when advising me these recent months. As this was my 2nd DUI, I was extremely scared and filled with anxiety. Meredith personally worked with me and was able to alleviate any concerns while advising me about the potential outcomes and managing honest expectations. I consulted over 8 firms before I choose to go with Meredith. The other firms I spoke with promised they could do this and that and this and that. I knew Meredith and her team were the ones the moment I spoke with them. Throughout the process Meredith personally contacted me to update me on any information I needed to be aware of, and had Taylor provide guidance and advice regarding DMV expectations, and set standards. My outcome could have been horrific given my situation however Meredith represented me in the MOST professional manner anyone could. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend Meredith and her team to anyone put in this situation. She has gone above and beyond and I can't say enough about her and her firm.
