I am a native of Bedford, Michigan, just across the state line from Toledo, Ohio.  When I'm not defending clients, I enjoy coaching high school basketball, supporting Cleveland, Ohio's pro sports teams, and taking walks with my family and our dogs.

I was inspired as a young man to become an attorney who was dedicated to defending his clients and ensuring their rights were protected.  As a criminal defense lawyer, I have handled hundreds of high-level felony cases, as well as more than 1,000 defendants charged with misdemeanor offenses.

I believe in straightforward honest communication with every client and strive to make sure my clients have all the information they need to make informed decisions about their lives.

DUI on PIB
Troy was great and he plea bargained my DUI on a golf cart down to a reckless op, very happy. Super nice guy, made it easy as possible for me. I am an out of towner and he handled this whole terrible situation for me with minimal involvement on my part.

Outstanding lawyer
Troy Wisehart did an amazing job with my case. I was in a really difficult situation and Troy took the time to listen and understand all the details. He worked through his strategy and was successful in getting the outcome we wanted. Troy and his office maintained great communication and I felt fully informed throughout the process. I really appreciate everything he did for me. Troy is truly outstanding!

Best choice ever!
Mr. Wisehart assured me he could help me and he did more than that! I got pulled over for potential dui and I refused to blow and one of the harshest judges dismissed my dui and refusal and waved my reinstatement fee thanks to Troy! Did I mention I have 2 prior? It was all too good. I will recommend him to the day I die. Thank you Troy!

Tremendous legal counsel
Mr. Wisehart was hired as defense counsel regarding a matter where two public figures were involved. In small town politics the village prosecutor was out to make a name for himself and was aided by a rabid and often inaccurate media feeding frenzy. Troy refused to try the case in the local papers. His research, common sense approach, preparation and thoughtfulness were outstanding. His courtroom professionalism was top tier. In this case, the jury was unanimous in their verdict for acquittal. If you need excellent counsel with first rate investigative and support/research resources then this is definitely your best attorney in erie, huron, ottawa, richland and surrounding Ohio counties.

Prompt and Professional Representation
I have used Mr. Wisehart on numerous occasions, as have members of my family. He has always done a very satisfactory job for us, and always kept us up to date on our actions. He is an excellent attorney.

Worth Every Penny!
I hired Mr. Wisehart as a defense attorney for felony criminal charges and he was a lifesaver! He is an experienced criminal attorney who is highly regarded and respected in the communities where he practices. Mr. Wisehart was understanding of my circumstances and handled my case with distinguished professionalism. The disposition of my case resulted in two low grade felony charges being reduced to misdemeanors and no jail time was ever served. Troy is very down to earth, easy to work with, and not to mention easy on the eyes! I highly recommend Troy for all of your criminal defense attorney needs.
