Criminal Defense

 

The focus of my practice is criminal defense. I defend people charged with felonies and misdemeanors in state and municipal courts throughout Ohio. Much of my work is devoted to defending people charged with OVI and other vehicular crimes.

I value being ethical, and having the opportunity to be a strong advocate for my clients. It is critical that an attorney care about those he represents and communicate with them on a regular basis. Each of my clients is important and deserves capable representation.

Great Attorney and Even Better Human
I used Bob for a difficult situation that I encountered. Before we really dove deep into what happened, Bob first made sure how I was doing personally. With all the emotions that you go through, he was the constant person asking how am I doing. Bob was very honest and forthcoming on how the process works. He never over promised and was very detailed in getting the facts into the defense. I would highly recommend Bob because not only he is a great attorney… he’s an even better human.

Passionate and Effective
Bob is a tour de force in the courtroom. Seeing him in action and watching him win, I’ve never been more impressed by a litigator who advocates for the people’s rights. This is a man you want in your corner.

Best Criminal Defense Lawyer (DUI and DWI)
Mr. Walton was referred to me from a dear friend and former law school classmate, it was the best lawyer recommendation I have had and I'm a practicing lawyer for over 3o years. During a very difficult time, Mr. Walton made a material difference in our family lives. Bob, was responsive, knowledgeable and emotional supportive and, most importantly, he got results! He's direct and no nonsense and clearly explained what we had to do and what should be left for him to do. The bottom line, Mr. Walton made a difference in our lives and I can highly recommend Mr. Walton for anyone needing a smart, tough, knowledgeable, trustworthy criminal defense lawyer. David

Robert Walton For Hire
Robert helped me to understand every relevant part of my OVI case from the minute I contacted him. He was very thorough in the subsequent weeks in forming the best maneuver possible under the circumstances. He made me feel comfortable and confident before, during, and after the case. Robert is not an impersonal lawyer, he helped me understand more about myself. I've more than made back the money I spent for his outstanding services in every way. I was told he was the best, and now is my chance to corroborate that! I would highly recommend Robert to anybody who has an OVI, DUI, DWI issue.

Highly Recommend Bob
Bob handled two matters for me and I got the outcome I wanted on both. He is also on top of all of the things that happen outside of a courtroom, in planning stages, filings, followups, and always w/quick and clear communication.

Fair and Honest
I hired Mr. Walton in the Summer of 2018. I had a pending Felony 3. He was able to drop most of my charges on my behalf. He knows the law and is willing to listen to your side of the story. He is kind and compassionate. I would not hesitate to hire him again. God willing that day will never come again.

The Best
Short summary of what is to follow: HIRE BOBBY WALTON. I wrapped myself up in an ugly OVI situation. This being my first offense, I had no idea where to go or what attorney to choose. I am a young adult and had a lot at stake with my career. Some of my peers lead me in the direction of Robert Walton, and I am so greatful I hired him. I contacted Walton the day after my incident and he came to meet me near my house the next day and provided a ride because I was unable to drive (he is very professional and will go out of his way to help you). With the circumstances of my case, I thought I was done for. It was BAD. Walton is relentless and went beyond the call of duty for me. He got me the best possible outcome with my case. I never thought it would have been possible. Walton single handidly saved my career and life. Not only will Bobby remain my lawyer in the future but he is now a friend.

Fantastic Representation
Bobby did a fantastic job handling handling our son's legal problems. There were a number of misdemeanor offenses in a short period of time. It was all very confusing, but Bobby explained everything simply and clearly. He made sure that we understood what was happening, and he was very patient answering all of our questions. Bobby is a great calming factor in a tough situation. We were doubly pleased once we saw Bobby in the courtroom. He has an excellent rapport with the judges and prosecuting attorneys, which is essential to make things happen. He also spoke definitively and clearly when presenting our son's case to the judge, especially when compared to some of the other lawyers. I am very happy that Bobby represented our son. He helped us sympathetically through a trying time. Most importantly, he was able to work with the judges and prosecutors in order to reduce or dismiss all of our son's charges. Bobby Walton is an excellent advocate for his clients!!

Excellent Attorney!
Bobby is a very well-known, respected, and excellent attorney. He is extremely intelligent and knows everything there is to know regarding the law. He is known for his success in suppressing evidence which was clearly shown with my situation. For example, he knew all of specifics in how police officials should handle certain sobriety tests along with the arrest of an OVI which led to removing material evidence from my case. Because of this, Bobby was able to dismiss my OVI charges which seemed near impossible up against my BAC levels. Bobby is not only a great attorney but a great person. In all of our conversations, I could tell he actually listened to me and cared about my well-being, making sure I was ok. He sees the good in people and wants to learn about you. He genuinely wants to help you because he knows the impact these cases can have on someone's life. We all make mistakes in life and Bobby understands that. If you are looking for an attorney, I would highly recommend Mr. Walton. Many people in the area respect him which can get you very far. I am naive when it comes to the cost of attorneys for my situation specifically (OVI). Bobby, himself, will tell you that he is expensive and that you can find an attorney who is cheaper. However, I would say that "this expense" is WELL worth it.

Excellent Attorney!
Fantastic attorney, very professional, extremely knowledgeable within all court appearances. It doesn't matter the city or county, Mr. Walton will fight to win. He actually got me off a DUI charge, when I ended up in a snow bank without accidents whatsoever, but the state troopers thought otherwise. He is very straight, honest, and I really believe in him. Pay the money, it's worth it in the long run!

Highly recommend...
Bob is extremely knowledgeable and honest at the same time. He has represented me twice and I recommend him to anyone facing an OVI charge. He was able to get both of my charges dismissed, one of which I am amazed by. He seemed to know everything there was to know regarding OVI law, and kept me extremely informed throughout the whole process. He is very detailed, and leaves no stone unturned. I couldn't be happier with my representation.

Hands down best attorney!
Bob Walton represented me with a DUI case. He was able to get my case dismissed when it seemed impossible. He was always highly professional and it seemed as though I was his only client based on the attention he gave my case. He has excellent communication and let me know exactly where the case stands at all times. I couldn't have been happier with the outcome all thanks to Bob Walton. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone for one second... hands down best criminal defense attorney.
