Criminal Defense Attorneys in Columbus, OH | Sabol | Mallory

When you have been arrested or you even think that you are under investigation for a criminal offense, every single move that you make becomes very important. In most situations, you will want to exercise your right to remain silent until you have legal representation.

It can be extremely confusing for many people when dealing with police, and officers do not necessarily inform people of their rights. As a result, many individuals end up effectively helping the criminal cases against them by trying to cooperate with authorities and making statements that are used against them.

If you or your loved one has been arrested for any kind of criminal offense in the greater Columbus area, you should not delay in retaining legal counsel. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will know how to fight to possibly get your criminal charges reduced or dismissed.

Why Our Firm?

Protecting You Like Our Own

Sabol | Mallory defends clients who have been charged with different kinds of crimes in Ohio. Our attorneys have received advanced scientific training to improve their knowledge and bolster their skills in handling complex cases.

We are members of the DUI Defense Lawyers Association, representing individuals who have been charged with operating vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs (OVI), a crime often referred to as driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) in other jurisdictions. According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the 27,346 OVI arrests in 2017 were the most of the five-year period and 126,084 were arrested for OVI between 2013 and 2017.

Drunk driving is only one practice area, and our firm also handles many other types of criminal charges. We handle many of the different drug crimes people can be charged with in Ohio as well as sex crimes, domestic violence, and family offenses.

Sabol | Mallory also defends people against violent crimes, weapon offenses, and property crimes like robbery, burglary, or trespass. We also handle theft cases and crimes against the government.

It is extremely important for you to understand that an arrest is not the same as a conviction. A prosecutor still has the burden of proving your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt in court.

Any one of a number of possible issues could make it more difficult for a prosecutor to prove their case. For example, an illegal search or seizure by police officers would make evidence inadmissible.

It is critical for you to have your arrest reviewed by a skilled attorney as soon as possible so you can identify any errors by authorities that might lead to your criminal charges being thrown out.

When results matter, it is critical to hire an exceptional operating vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs (OVI) attorney to defend your case.


People can face criminal charges when they possess controlled substances prohibited by law or when they possess legal drugs without valid prescriptions or authorization.


Most any act that involves illegally taking the property of another party is considered theft. People charged with theft crimes in Ohio can face serious penalties if convicted of these offenses.


Weapons offenses address the balance of the right to arm and protect yourself, and the state’s ability to legislate the manner and circumstances you may carry and use your weapon.


Many sexual interactions are remarkably private and intimate experiences, so it often comes as a shock to many people when they are later charged with sex crimes.

06. Violent Crimes

Violent crimes are taken very seriously by prosecutors, as alleged offenders are often viewed as being threats to the safety of the general public.
