About Brad

Learn Brad’s areas of practice.

Cincinnati native Brad J. Groene is a compassionate and industrious legal advocate who has been practicing law in the greater Cincinnati metropolitan area for five years. Brad’s sole practice areas comprise criminal defense, OVI / DUI and traffic offenses. He has successfully represented clients charged with a wide range of offenses ranging from minor misdemeanors to the most serious felony cases.

 

 

Brad received his Bachelor of Science in Business from Miami University in 2005 and his juris doctorate from the Salmon P. Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University in 2008.

 

Brad is a selfless and compassionate attorney who practices law because he truly believes in making a difference in the lives of his clients. He passionately believes in the importance of providing stellar, highly effective legal representation for all of his clients so that the charges and penalties they face will not have dire, life-changing consequences on their jobs, families, and futures. He is committed to fighting vigorously and tirelessly for every aspect of a client’s case in order to provide each client the justice that they deserve.

For Brad, clients come first. It is of paramount importance that each client has a personalized experience rather than feel like a number. He gives his personal cell phone number to clients and makes himself available on a 24/7 basis so that they are able to reach him whenever they need. He understands the urgency of answering questions quickly and promptly, as it is understandable a client’s liberties and privileges are at stake.

Brad’s interest in becoming an attorney was initially piqued in college when he took a business law class. This class opened his eyes to the law, as he enjoyed learning about the finer details as well as bigger picture of the legal profession. Little did he know that his interest in business law would develop into a criminal law career.

After college Brad attended law school, where he continued to broaden his legal, intellectual, as well as practical skills. It was during law school where his experience in the criminal system began, while interning full time at the Hamilton County Public Defender’s office. He learned the complexities of the criminal justice system and handled actual cases in Hamilton County.

Following law school, Brad continued to gain more experience in the criminal arena. He has successfully defended clients facing all kinds of criminal charges from drug offenses to OVI / DUIs to domestic violence offenses. Specifically, he has won numerous bench trials in front of judges, argued cases in front of all of the local prosecutors, and has truly gained an understanding for effectively handling a criminal defense case.

Brad is a member of the Ohio State Bar Association and is licensed to practice law in Ohio as well as Kentucky. He is certified and trained by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration to perform field sobriety tests that law enforcement typically conduct. He also participates in speaking engagements at the Wellness Certified Driver Intervention Program to discuss OVI / DUI law.

Very impressed and thankful!
Brad worked so hard and fought for me. I was very impressed by his dedication and all of the communication. He made a very stressful situation so much better and was able to put me at ease. Had my charge dropped to basically nothing. If you are thinking the money would not be worth it in the end, you are wrong! I am so thankful I trusted my gut and went with him.

Charges Dismissed
Got the job done charges dismissed! Brad answered and returned my calls, seemed to be personally invested in proving my innocence, and got the job done. 3 charges all behind me! Hopefully I never have to use him again but if you are in the spot I was I suggest you give him a call. Worth every penny!! Overall I am satisfied to have my name cleared and I have to thank Brad for making that happen.

Phenomenal and Exceptional Service and Practice
I love working with Brad. He is professional and handles the cases I have brought him very, very well. The team that backs him is phenomenal as well and has never let me down in terms of the service provided. I was able to contact them at 11pm at night to get connected to Brad and Brad exceeded my expectations and hopes in terms of outcome and protected me from life damaging punishment. I would and have recommended Brad to my friends. The only way I could ask more of him was is if I gave him a full time job as my personal legal consul. Phenomenal and exceptional service and practice.

First-rate attorney!
I hired Brad to defend my girlfriend against some old shoplifting charges. In the process we also needed his help in getting the Cincinnati Police Department to back off on some trumped up felony fleeing charges. Brad made a phone call or two and made sure that they knew she had competent representation which put an end to their harassment. Subsequently Brad used sound legal tactics and the discovery process to get the charges dismissed. Brad gets my highest endorsement as a criminal defense attorney as well as my endorsement for his abilities as a traffic ticket attorney.

A+ Tops In My Book
Brad is a great lawyer, he worked his butt off on my case. I was facing jail time, months or possibly a year. Brad worked extremely hard on my case and got it reduced to probation, and I was very happy with the outcome. Brad also worked on getting driving privileges for going back and for the to work, which I am grateful and satisfied with this. My case was a very serious one. I am so relieved and pleased with the outcome. I am very fortunate to have luck on my side when I found Brad and hired him as my attorney. Thank you, Brad.

Great Lawyer
I found Brad through a search for Underage OVI Lawyers and proved himself to be the best. Turn the Underage OVI into Wreckless Ops and had the reinstatement fee waived. Brad is pleasant to work with and works hard to get you better results. I recommend him if you are looking for a lawyer. Very happy with the outcome.

SN
When faced with a first-degree misdemeanor assault charge, I was in a state of disbelief and panic. Not knowing where to turn, I came across Mr. Groene's profile on Luftman, Heck & Associates' website and decided to give him a call. From the very beginning, Mr. Groene was compassionate, professional and very matter-of-fact in detailing the seriousness of the offense and potential consequences if I was found guilty. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Groene and his office kept me very informed of new developments and reminded me of scheduled court appearances. In the courtroom, Mr. Groene was extremely professional and diligent in his discovery of the facts. When the prosecution was unable to provide evidence of the assault, Mr. Groene fought to have the charge dismissed -- which it was. Ultimately, my experience with Mr. Groene was extremely positive and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Excellent
I got charged with an ovi 4 months ago. I have never researched a lawyer before and Brad was the best out of 3 lawyers I talked to. First of he did not charge me for a consultation and secondly he had a lot of information to give before I decided to go with him. I blew a 1.58. Which is pretty high. The chances of me getting a wreckless op was very slim. Brad was able to get my ovi dropped to a wreckless op and got my 480 dollar drivers reinstatement fee waived. I was a very happy person.

Do not recommend
He studdered each time I asked him details on my case. Took my 4K and promised felonies dropped to a misdemeanor, that didn’t happen. Just one felony dismissed which I’m pretty sure would have happened with a public defender anyway. On my sentencing date I got sent to river city he said “I’m going to come see you” and never did and never replied any of my phone calls during my incarceration. I would not recommend him for a serious case. Seems like driving charges is all he’s good for.
