Allison M. Lawrence joined Groth and Associates in 2008. Finding a passion in helping others, she follows in her late father and esteemed Toledo criminal defense attorney, John Lawrence’s, footsteps and focuses primarily on criminal law (although she always handles client needs across the board).
Allison grew up in Toledo, attending and graduating from Catholic schools locally. She is well known in both the legal community and the community at large, with a strong network.
She is licensed in all Ohio courts, and regularly appears in common pleas and municipal courts all over Ohio. Allison is a member of the Toledo Bar Association, the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys, and the Maumee Valley Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. She regularly appears in Veterans Court and in drug cases on behalf of those battling addiction, which is an area she is very passionate about.
In Allison’s Words:
“I can only imagine the fear that comes with being charged with a crime and knowing that you might lose your freedom. But, I try to. I try to put myself in my clients’ shoes. With me as your attorney, you will never feel abandoned. I make it a point to truly listen to my clients’ side of the story, their concerns, and their fears.
In every case I handle, the first thing I do is look for some way to get the charge dismissed or to end up with a not guilty verdict. If that’s not possible, I try to resolve the case in whatever way is most important to my client. If my client’s main concern is not doing jail time, that’s what I aim for. If my client is mostly worried about a particular charge being on their record, I try to get the charge amended to one that they are ok with.
I strive to ensure that my clients are as comfortable as possible at every stage of this scary process. And, I work hard to get my clients the best possible result- no matter how strong the evidence against them may seem.”
WORDS FROM OUR CLIENTS
Our experience with Attorney Stevin Groth was nothing short of life changing.ALFRED & JENNIFER
When we first contacted Mr. Groth, he gave us his cell phone number and we were able to directly contact him day or night. His knowledge of the Ohio judicial system was astounding. He handled all aspects of our case himself, never once handing off our case to jr. associates. Stevin had positive relationships with all the judges, district attorneys and court personal that we came in contact with. Stevin’s persuasive arguments on our son’s behalf cleared him of all charges. Because of Stevin’s abilities, our son is able to move forward with his life without the stigma of a criminal record. We could not recommend Stevin Groth more highly.
Dan is an amazing attorney. He had my divorce finalized in a short period of time. A lot quicker than I thought it was going to be and for that I’m thankful! Dan knew exactly what he was talking about. Any questions I had Dan, and his assistant, Michelle was glad to answer. The outcome of my divorce was exactly what I was hoping for.LAURIE
Thank You Dan for your services!
