Law Firm Overview

Joslyn Law Firm is dedicated to fighting for the rights of men, women, and youth facing criminal charges in Columbus, Ohio. This criminal defense firm was founded by Brian Joslyn with the mission of providing clients with determined, knowledgeable, and compassionate representation.
Joslyn Law Firm represents a diverse group of clients in Delaware County, Franklin County, Madison County and the surrounding areas. This includes working and business professionals, students, parents, out-of-town visitors, and others who are in need of experienced legal counsel.

The Columbus-based law firm focuses exclusively on criminal misdemeanor and felony offense cases. This includes several practice areas, such OVI (operating vehicle under the influence), domestic violence, drug charges, marijuana charges, probation violation, and other offenses. Clients also seek out Joslyn Law Firm for dedicated representation in administrative matters, from license revocation hearings to criminal records sealing.

If you or a loved one has been arrested for a criminal offense, it's vital to understand your legal options. Even if the charges appear minor, admitting any guilt can open the doors to a conviction and criminal record. The police officer is legally bound to inform you of your right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. Be sure to exercise both rights.

Brian Joslyn will personally help you understand both the charges you face and begin building a solid defense strategy. Your initial consultation is free and no-obligation. With so much at stake, be sure that you're doing everything you can to secure a free and bright future after an arrest.
