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!!!
Posted by Kyle | October 11, 2012
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.

Simple and Straightforward
Rob was very helpful and understanding, especially for someone in legal trouble for the first time and not knowing what to do. He took care of things right out the gate and minimized efforts required from my end. Would recommend!

Precision and Honor
My experience with Robert Healey has been exquisite! Robert is extremely intelligent, thoughtful, patient, and thorough, when assembling a stout defense, preparing for trial, and guiding an individual through the due process protocols. He has an extraordinary case IQ, an immense amount of experience, and has earned the respect of multiple county court rooms throughout his seasoned tenure. Robert has represented me, helping me realign my life over the course of a decade. Furthermore, he has made me feel like a valued human being, since the first time we met! Here’s to Robert Healey’s integrity, caring demeanor, and patience. Thank you so much for the honorable work you do… -Rodney Marshall

Knowledgeable and Respected by Prosecutor and Judge
Mr Healey and his team was amazing! I had full transparency into all of the evidence in my case, the ability to upload my documents with no hassle at all, and received reminders for all of my upcoming court dates. Good communication and full transparency can be so hard to find these days. I can't imagine not having those key items during such a stressful time in my life! Mr Healey did his homework, gave me all my options with their potential outcomes, and let me decide what I wanted to do. His advice, respect in the courtroom, and communication got me the best possible results and I was able to walk out of the courtroom with my head held high. If I had five more stars, I'd seriously need 5 more stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks for Wasting Your Summer
Robert F Healey, Jr Esq spent his entire summer deftly and swiftly reviewed my case which escalated from an extremely bizarre traffic stop to a first class misdemeanor for evading police and resisting arrest -- neither of which were true to my knowledge. His research in to archaic and obsolete Glendale Milford police code facilitated a reduced sentence and the best possible outcome for my day in court.

Patient and Professional
I requested on a Friday afternoon an attorney's help with an auto accident. I was confused and needed help. Robert Healey was very patient, asked important questions, and provided good counsel. He was concerned about my injuries. Before noon the next day, he called with important, accurate and well-received information. I am very grateful to Attorney Robert Healey and the office at Minnillo Law Group.
