CAN A TALENTED DEFENSE LAWYER MAKE A DIFFERENCE? SEE MY REVIEWS BELOW TO GET THE ANSWER.

Looking for a DUI/OVI or Criminal Lawyer in the Cincinnati, Dayton, or Northern Kentucky? I can help. Over half of the cases I work on involve a DUI or OVI. I also have experience fighting and negotiating Misdemeanor and Felony cases like drug possession, open containers, underage drinking, drug paraphernalia, obstruction of official business, gun charges, drug trafficking, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, forgery, bank robbery, white collar crime, arson, theft, kidnapping, burglary, aggravated vehicular assault, aggravated vehicular homicide, vehicular homicide, child endangering, telephone communications harassment, domestic violence, sex cases, civil/domestic violence protection orders, etc.

I am licensed to practice in Ohio, Kentucky, and the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. I have defended criminal and traffic cases in the Cincinnati, Dayton, and Northern Kentucky areas. I have been trained to administer NHTSA Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs) and completed the NHTSA Advanced Roadside Impairment Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) course that focuses on drugged driving.

Best Choice I've Ever Made
He was so helpful and nice. I've never been in trouble before and was freaking out. He was patient with me and was there the entire time to walking me through the process. HE IS THE BEST!!!

Excellent Lawyer!
Rob was the first lawyer I called. I told him the details of my incident and he immediately informed me of how he thought I could help. Since I refused all sobriety test the prosecutor refused to make me a deal in our pretrial hearing due to the refusal charge. Rob immediately filled a motion to suppress evidence and subpoena'd all documentation, and devices used by the officers. The officers claimed that they never received the subpoena's and did not bring in any of the documentation Rob had requested. Rob was then able to pressure the prosecutor to lessen my charge to a reckless operation and dismissed the rest of the charges. I got 6 months probation small fines, and had to attend a 3 day driver intervention program. My license were suspended for only 180 days dated back to the date of the incident. Robert Healey was very knowledgeable about the field and I would recommend him to any one who needs a great attorney to fight an OVI charge.

First DUI
This is my first DUI. I felt pretty down and didn’t know where to begin. Contacted Rob for help. Rob explained me the whole process. Throughout the entire process, Rob was on top of everything, always communicating with me and working with me for the best possible outcome. I moved out of state and Rob went to court for me fighting this case. I received a favourable outcome on my case. My charges were dropped to Reckless Driving. Rob is not only a great lawyer, but an awesome person overall.

Rob definitely knows DUI law inside and out
Rob Healey did an excellent job getting breathalyzer evidence excluded. He also successfully got the blood test evidence excluded. Even when the prosecutor appealed the decision, the order to exclude the evidence was upheld by the higher court. Ultimately, we won a verdict of not guilty at the jury trial. Rob is an excellent defense attorney and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Rob came highly recommended & now I understand why. His subject matter expertise along with calm demeanor presented the facts on our case in a credible manner.

UTILIZATION TESTIMONY
We needed to consolidate our debt and I was looking at some options. But first we had 3,000 to 4,000 to throw at it to get some of the utilizations down to possibly get a better rate. One is an instalment loan from last summer when our HVAC failed. The payments are ridiculously almost all going to interest and we are still above 90% utilization several months later. Our FICO score taken a hug drop since we took our last summer, we couldn’t apply for anything again in the country. But all thanks to PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST who came through for me. They helped me raised my credit score to (807 TransUnion, 802 Experian 805 Equifax) they also cleared all my debt and reduced my utilization. They’re the people’s Angel helping people from financial stress. You can contact them via [email protected] Or text them on +1 585 466 4373.

Definitely hire
Got into some trouble in 2019 and he was able to get me six days jail, with three days actual jail time, three days in a program, and a year’s probation. Then I messed up and got into trouble again in 2022 and he was able to get me with three days either jail or a three day class and chose the class with two years reporting probation, so I definitely got a fairly light sentence/a good deal with how bad it was.

The Best
I was arrested and charged with OVI, Hit/Skip, & Marked Lanes. I called Rob, the night of. He immediately was on the ball with what potential penalties could be, how much it will cost, what to expect. After court dates and continuances, Rob got all of my charges reduced and a result that I didn’t think possible. He always stayed in constant communication and I would 100% recommend him to anybody seeking a strong attorney. Thanks Rob!

Thank you
Let it be known that I received a great outcome with my situation. From start to finish, I was very pleased with everything. I was a second time offender in a bad situation, and I got better results this time than the 1 offense. I appreciate every bit of time Rob put in for me. Thank you!
