About Robert

Learn Robert’s areas of practice.

Rob is a former Hamilton County Prosector who is dedicated to helping his clients. He has limited his practice to DUI, criminal and Juvenile cases and is ready to assist you in your Ohio or Kentucky matter. Learn more about Rob below: 

Rob is a native Kentuckian who still loves his home State (Commonwealth). Rob is an only child who spent most of his childhood in Fort Thomas, Kentucky. Rob's Grandfather, William Wright, was the Assistant Chief of Police in Fort Thomas and his parents, Rob and Billie, met at Highlands High School. Rob's father is a retired Architect/Engineer and Rob's mother is a literature professor at the University of Cincinnati. Rob is an only child. Growing up Rob also lived in Boone County, Kentucky for a few years.

Rob was a "LIFER" at Summit Country Day School in Hyde Park, Ohio. Rob's parents sent him to Summit  because it was more diverse than Highland's at the time and provide a solid academic footing. Rob attended Summit from the time he was 3 years old until he graduated from high school. At Summit Rob played football and basketball (until he determined that he was height challenged). Rob credits the Summit for his strong belief in servant leadership. It is this belief that, in part, caused him to enter the legal profession.

Rob attended Wittenberg University for college. There he helped found Tiger Life, an organization that worked with underprivileged children in the Springfield schools. He also became active with the Wttenberg College Republicans and partcipated in a number of political campaigns. While at Wittenberg Rob also did course work at the University of Cincinnati (Criminal Justice Courses and Paralegal Courses) and volunteered with the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority and Legal Aid of Cincinnati/Hamilton County.

Rob attended Chase College of Law and graduated Cum Laude. While at Chase Rob clerked Robert E. Sanders and Associates.

Rob has worked outside the legal field when he was young as a laborer for Wipper Construction and EGC construction, a customer service representative for 5/3 Bank and a pharmacist assistant at Mullaney's Pharmacy.

Rob was an Assistant Hamilton County Prosecutor from 1999 to 2006. He was the Chief Assistant Prosecutor in the Juvenile Division for 5 years. While at the Prosecutors office he did work on the Gang Task Force, the Riot Action Task Force and it is believed that he still holds the record for convicting the youngest murder in Ohio history, a ten year old who along with his 13 year old cousin raped and murdered his eight year old sister. 

In the legal field, Rob has also done work with Lexis/Nexis. 

Rob's has been published in the Duke Journal of Gender Law and Policy and the Cincinnati Bar Magazine. He was a law clerk and legal assistant in the publication of the book Sexual Harassment in Higher Education:Reflections and New Perspectives.

Rob has also worked as a substitute adjunct professor and an assistant adjunct professor in paralegal studies at the University of Cincinnati. 

Rob left the Prosecutor's Office to work at the Farrish Law Firm in 2006. While at the firm he has focused his practice on DUI, Juvenile and Criminal cases. He is a member of the National College of DUI Defense and is certified to do the NHTSA Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. Rob considers his ability to assist his clients, in crisis, as the best part of his job. Finds fulfillment in his ability to serve. Rob has had a number of large media cases in his career both a  defense lawyer and as a prosecutor.

Rob still volunteers his time regularly. He has served as an Elder and Session member at Covenant-First Presbyterian Church, a board member at Llanfair Retirement Community (Chair of Llanfair Human Relations Community), a member of the Presbyterian Child Welfare Association Property Board, Amberley Village Ward Chair, Amberley Village Precinct Executive, member of the Male Advisory for the Hamilton County Council on child abuse, been a Chase Law School First Year Mentor, mentored a student Mentee at Mt. Auburn International Academy, tutored at Vine Street Elementary and been a volunteer judge repeatedly for high school and college mock trial events. 

Rob is the K6 Treasurer of the Booster Association at Summit Country Day. He served on their Alumni Association for years and was the president of that organization for two terms. He coordinates the yard markers for the varsity football games. He has coached his daughter's basketball team at Summit for years. Summit for Rob is "HOME" and he loves the time he is able to spend there.

Rob is married to Kelly, a teacher at the Fairfield 9th Grade School and the proud father of and his family own one dog, a boxer lab mix, and a black cat.

Rob loves college football and basketball and will tell anyone who asks that he bleeds blue because he is a Kentucky Wildcat.

Rob is passionate about his clients and their interest. If you have a need he would love to help care for that need.

Highly Recommend Mr. Dziech
My son was in need of a lawyer for a small traffic violation, however it was his third ticket before his 18th birthday so he was facing serious consequences that would likely impact his future college plans. Naively we faced the first two traffic tickets without a lawyer. That was a mistake because we were now in unfamiliar territory. Rob sat with us at our initial consultation and explained the entire situation in great detail. He was friendly, knowledgeable and spent as much time with us as we needed (we had a lot of questions). Prior to the court date he kept in contact with my son giving him updates and letting know how to be prepared. The results Rob was able to provide us were far beyond our expectations! Extremely happy with every aspect of our experience with Rob through this entire process. I would highly recommend Rob Dziech!

Great to work with
Rob really helped me with my DUI and criminal case. He was dedicated, knowledgable and paid great attention to detail in every aspect of the case. In the courtroom, I felt 100% confident with him representing me. I can truly thank him for his assistance in the best outcome possible. I would be in a much different place if I had not hired him. I will be referring him to anyone that needs a great lawyer.

Excellent, Caring, & Dedicated Lawyer
Mr. Dziech far exceeded my expectations by performing a thorough examination of my case, and he took a great deal of care in establishing an empathetic as well as professional relationship with me as his client. Essentially, Mr. Dziech really took the time to get to know me and my circumstances. He seemed to understand my situation, how I ended up in the circumstances that brought me to his office...and we established a rapport that allowed me to approach a sensitive situation in court...and come out successful...in a way that allowed me to continue my life in a healthy, vibrant, and meaningful way. As a result of my experience with Mr. Dziech I left my court proceedings on an extremely positive note, but also with the understanding that I would not ever take the opportunity that I was given for granted. And, ever since this experience I continue to do good with my life each and every day. I help many people on daily basis. I am forever indebted to Mr. Dziech, who saw something in me that allowed me to make a wrong situation right. He helped my judge understand my remorse, my desire to do good, and my actions that represent my continued growth. I HIGHLY recommend seeking the counsel of Mr. Robert W. Dziech II. You will NOT be disappointed if you choose Rob Dziech as your lawyer!

Excellent
Mr. Robert Dziech is the example of an attorney who is extremely competent, professional, trustworthy and understanding. My son was in quite a bit of legal trouble. I put my trust and faith in Mr. Dziech and he has worked miracles so far for my son. He is always there to answer my questions and never makes me feel like I am bothering him.. I have watched how comfortably he interacts with the other court officials and attorneys. He is very good at what he does and I would highly recommend him for any case you might have. He has never let my son and myself done. We could not have made it this far without him.

Quick, Efficient and Effective. Highly Recommend!!
I highly recommend Rob Dziech to anyone who needs legal assistance quickly, efficiently and effectively. I retained Rob's services after I was falsely accused of harassment, and it was, without a doubt, the best decision I made! Rob was swift in speaking with the county prosecutor and getting my case dismissed without ever having to go to trial. He handled my case with utmost concern, responsibility and involvement. I especially appreciated all Rob did to keep me informed with the legal details of my case and his responsiveness to my (many) questions throughout the entire process. He helped me every step of the way, responding promptly to phone calls and emails, and going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure my case was resolved to my satisfaction. Rob's professionalism and attention to detail, coupled with his kind and caring approach are simply unmatched. I would strongly recommend him as your attorney.

Fantastic!
Mr Dziech was very knowledgeable and cost efficient in settling my son's cases in Ohio and Kentucky, attaining amazing results with the courts. I would highly recommend him !
Posted by Keith | June 4, 2014
Comprehensive and extremely professional
I was fortunate to be referred to Rob by an acquaintance to represent me in an Ohio OVI/Refusal case. Very thorough from the get go and I was confident I had found the most qualified person to represent me that I could. Walked me through every step of the process, addressed all of the details and issues with the traffic stop and ensuing field sobriety tests. I am confident we would have won had we taken the case to trial, but Mr. Dziech was able to secure a plea deal that I could not refuse. Well worth the investment!
