Our Criminal Defense Practice

Certain offenses can be punished by “life in prison” even though you have no prior convictions. Many sex crimes and crimes involving the use of firearms are punished by “life in prison” on the first offense. The Kollin Firm, LLC, has defended the rights of countless individuals in both low and high-profile cases. The criminal defense cases we handle include the following:


Aside from instances in which the offender clearly engages in non-consented sex, there are cases where the man reasonably believed there was “consensual” sex, only to later be accused by his sex partner of misunderstanding her true desires and committing the sex act against her wishes. Criminal penalties for rape and other sex crimes are quite severe and very often, the alleged “victim” is given every benefit of the doubt by law enforcement as to any misunderstandings over whether or not the sex was consensual.


We defend clients for possession or sale of narcotics. Our goal is to assist you in obtaining Drug Rehabilitation Treatment, whether inpatient or outpatient. If your money was seized as the proceeds of crime, we may agree to oppose a Forfeiture Action by seeking to establish your funds are “clean” to get you your money back.

Violent Crimes

Assault, terrorist threats, kidnapping, false imprisonment and homicide are all violent crimes. It is not uncommon for the prosecuting attorney to charge more serious offenses when a violent act or threat was committed. Often, the best defense to these charges includes proving the circumstances surrounding the offense to the court, and attaining sentencing alternatives to jail, or reduced jail time, including Anger Management Classes or Domestic Violent Counseling.

White Collar Crime

We defend clients accused by the District Attorney of Theft crimes, including embezzlement, credit card, insurance fraud, grand theft, petty theft and other “White Collar” Crimes. The Federal Government prosecutes organized crime under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statute (18 U.S.C. €1961-58(1994). These offenses call for lengthy prison sentences and huge fines. RICO violations can emanate from the following activities: threats and conspiracies involving murder, kidnapping, gambling, arson, robbery, bribery, extortion, felonious manufacture, import, export, or sale of obscene matter or controlled substances, trafficking in stolen property contraband or cigarettes, embezzlement, wire or securities fraud, falsifying ID documents, counterfeiting materials or currency, interference with commerce, racketeering, wagering, paraphernalia, obstruction of justice and other actions.

Do Not Talk To Police

If you have seen any police procedural, you can probably quote the phrase, “You have the right to remain silent.” This right is a vital piece of your defense because your words and even your silence can be the main evidence against you. You must proactively refuse to answer questions and tell them that you are taking your right to remain silent.

Remaining silent is your choice, but otherwise, you must be polite and compliant with any officers who speak with you. Physically resisting an arrest puts you in immense danger. And even if an officer unlawfully searches your personal belongings, trying to stop that from happening is only going to make things worse for you. Your best option is to let your attorney fight the circumstances of your arrest and the search.

Recovering Your Rights To Bear Arms

Many criminal convictions restrict your ability to keep and bear arms. However, Ohio law does provide some mechanism for you to regain those rights. “relief from disability” is a petition we can file with the court to allow you some rights to own a gun.

It’s an extremely complex and confusing area of the law, but we can help you pursue your rights. In many cases, felons can possess weapons for hunting. Regardless, if you need a firearm, we can help you.
