I sought out an Attorney after having a search warrant served and all my electronic devices removed from my home. My first reaction was that my world was over once it was known to my job, friends and loved ones that I viewed Child Pornography. I was full of shame and guilt. I would eventually be charged with several felony charges for pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor.
Before I was officially charged 10 months later, I had searched the internet for an Attorney that had very good reviews and who had dealt with clients with the same charges as mine. This is where I found excellent reviews about Attorney Brian Joslyn and the Joslyn Law Firm. I read his background and his story on his website. I felt he would be a good fit for my defense.
I spoke with Mr. Joslyn on the phone and we made an appointment for consultation. He was the most compassionate, understanding and nonjudgmental person and I knew this is who I wanted to represent and help me with my charges. Initially I was suicidal; even recklessly attempting to commit suicide. Speaking to Brian, I was comforted in knowing that there is life after this unfortunate type of situation and that there was help. Suicide is not the answer.
Brian strongly encouraged me to start going to meetings for Sex Addicts and sent me to a forensic Psychiatrist. Brian told me “You take care of yourself and work on feeling better mentally and emotionally and let me worry about your case”. I took his recommendations and dedicated myself to attending Sex Addicts Anonymous meetings and began one on one therapy with a Sex Addiction / Offender Therapist.
Through this process and my journey, Brian continued to support me and encourage me to keep doing what I was doing. He kept me informed and it helped ease my mind; knowing that he was diligently working on my case. He showed genuine concern for my wellbeing. He truly wanted to see that I get and continue to receive the help I needed and that I leave the rest to him.
Fast forward to today. I was officially charged with 5 felony 2s pandering sexually illicit material involving a minor. Brian was able to get that reduced to 2. His summary was detailed and educational. His courtroom presentation was staggering to watch.
He had supplied to the judge articles and research on the effects of addiction to pornography and how it can lead down a very dark road. The Judge had stated that he had “learned a lot” from Brian’s summary letter. This is a huge win because as I now know, this is a misunderstood and stigmatic problem that can stem from an addiction to mainstream pornography. The mere fact that he was able to educate a respected, intelligent Harvard Graduate Judge, speaks volumes on his part.
I ended up with 3 years’ probation and sex offender registration. It was a very big win. No jail or prison time. I continue to take Brian’s suggestions and continue to work the program of Sex Addicts Anonymous in addition to working one on one with my Sex Offender Therapist. I am so thankful to Brian for his suggestions, his compassion and his understanding. His support and determination in making sure I was well holistically while defending me whole heartedly has meant so much to me. I’m proud to call Brian Joslyn my attorney and my friend.
Anyone who is facing the unfortunate position I was in can be assured that the Joslyn Law firm will take care of you with fortitude and grace. Brian’s paralegal, Bess, was also instrumental in helping me through this difficult journey. I could not have asked for a better team than Brian Joslyn and his law firm.

Brian is an amazing attorney and I would recommend him to my closest family members. Brian helped me with a criminal charge during a dark period in my life. He was very respectful and made me feel like I was in good hands. It was impressive to watch him take charge in the courtroom and you could tell that the prosecutors, judges and other lawyers respect him. He was very knowledgeable and trustworthy and I liked how he was strait with me and didn’t sugarcoat things. I have the highest praise for attorney Joslyn and I would recommend him for legal representation.

When my father and I received the terrible news that my brother was arrested, we were at an utter loss and despair. I did a quick search online and Joslyn Law Firm’s website stood out with their modern, advanced website and we quickly gave them a call. Thank goodness we did because Brian Joslyn immediately went to save my brother.
The scariest thing about the situation is that we know nothing about “the system.” Brian was forthright, spelled out the process, and prepared my family for what to expect. He is an amazing listener and answered all of our questions. Brian had a presence at the court hearings; he knew the prosecuting attorney and judge and worked strategically, demonstrating his confidence in his knowledge and experiences in law.
My family was very fortunate to have Brian’s aid. Thank you Brian and Joslyn Law Firm!

Attorneys Brian Joslyn and Tamas Tabor represented me recently, I was charged with OVI and I refused to consent to any testing. To make matters worse, I don't live anywhere near Ohio and it would be very expensive to come back. Tamas and the team at Joslyn Law helped me resolve the matter with minimal disruption to my work schedule, and with an outcome that reached all of my objectives.

Brian Joslyn is first class all the way. He treats you like you are family and he does not back down in the courtroom. I was charged with a rape offense as well as kidnapping, facing very serious time in prison. My family decided to hire Brian for my defense and we all knew he was the right fit. He was always available to take our calls, we had his cell number and he would pick up any time during the week and on weekends. Brian believed in my innocence and he was confident moving forward with my trial. my trial was grueling and long, Brian showed up every morning prepared to fight. He out lawyered the prosecution. He questioned medical experts and law enforcement and continued to show the errors in the states case. At the end I was found not guilty and I owe my whole life to this man. His entire office was warm and welcoming, they never treated me like a criminal, they just wanted to help me fix this nightmare in my life.
My eternal gratitude to Brian Joslyn and his whole team.

Four years ago I retained Mr. Joslyn for $6000. He put me on his "watch list" to so he could warn me about any arrest warrant. Since that day I have not heard one thing from Mr. Joslyn or anyone from his firm. A few months ago I contacted them to find out if they knew anything about the status of my case. They knew nothing so I decided to end the attorney relationship. The secretary said she'll have to recalculate my retainer as an hourly rate. After several rounds of phone tag and getting no real answer from the secretary for about two weeks, she finally said I would get $470 back. I let her know that I thought that wasn't right because I haven't even heard from them one time since retaining them, not a single phone call or email or piece of advice or consultation, nothing. And, I was never told their hourly cost for keeping me on their "watch list" and never even told what the watch list is. I requested they send me a receipt to show the work they've done which they said they would do. About two weeks later and more phone tag and seeing no receipt in the mail, I finally received an email from Mr. Joslyn. saying that they owed me nothing more. Attached was kind of cryptic PDF with almost a hundred pages of the same thing over and over. It looked like some output from a computer program checking me against an arrest warrant list or so with an inserted time on each check. I don't really know because they never explained it to me at all.
So, I don't agree with them that they owe me nothing from the entire $6000. This whole "watch list" thing feels almost like a scam especially after receiving their email receipt which looks like something someone hacked together to make it look like real work and how they treated me, not like a client but like someone just bothering them.

I received counsel from Mr. Tamas Tabor with Joslyn Law Firm earlier this year - Tamas provided me with an excellent service and counsel. Any representative from Joslyn Law Firm will help you attain the results you're looking for while doing it in a timely manner. I can't thank Tamas and Joslyn Law firm enough.

Ours was a very long, drawn out process and Brian was there EVERY step of the way, personally guiding us through everything. His open, honest communication as he explained everything – pros, cons, and made us aware of the worst possible scenarios so we could be prepared if needed. He is smart, strategic, dedicated, & hard working. I felt like he was always one step ahead. Most importantly, he took the time to understand the mental disability that affects my family member and that was imperative to his defense. This could have been on my family member’s record for life. One bad decision, in one moment of time, had the potential to ruin his life forever. Brian FOUGHT and FOUGHT HARD. It was difficult and challenging all the way to the end and he stuck with it, never giving up. He literally put his heart and soul into it and won the best possible outcome. His persistence, dedication, and determination gave my family member a second chance. I will be forever grateful to him.

I highly recommend Brian at the Joslyn Law Firm to anyone who is seeking legal representation with an exceedingly skilled and confident lawyer. On top of being informative and reassuring, he was easy to contact and very prompt in returning any calls or emails. He listened, addressed any questions, and his never give up attitude is second to none in his dedication to his clients. He is a man of action in the justice system and his results parallel this.
