Best Criminal Lawyer In Ohio
Stevin Groth literally saved my future. He treated me with nothing but respect and dignity, with stern sound advice, and helped me through the most difficult period of my life. I would recommend him for anybody that is serious about finding legal representation in the state of Ohio. He has practiced in multiple states and is extremely professional on top of being a well-known and well-respected part of the legal system. If you are dedicated to providing exactly what he asks for you can expect what he says to come to fruition and in my case…more!!! My life would be utterly over if I did not acquire his representation in my criminal case and follow through on every step of his directions. He worked with me and kept me in the loop every step of the way and drastically altered the course of my trial. I could of never envisioned the events following my arrest going in the direction that they did and it was only possible due to the excellent legal representation on behalf of Stevin Groth.

Great defense lawyer!
Alison Lawrence helped me through one of the biggest mistakes of my life!! Was dependable and went above and beyond to help me throughout my case! So much so that I have referred three other people to her who also have had great outcomes!! She is definitely a lawyer who actually cares about her clients. Even when I would ask the same questions over and over she was patient with me and understanding!! She gets the job done!

Highly Recomended
Our experience with Attorney Stevin Groth was nothing short of life changing. 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. Sincerely, Alfred and Jennifer

By far the finest attorney in Northwest Ohio
The experience I had with Alison was one of the least stressful and definitely the best I’ve ever had pertaining to the judicial system. All of my uneasiness and worry was put to rest with Alison, I highly recommend her for any law problems you may encounter. 5 stars isn’t enough.

– Ryan Watson 

Stevin J. Groth
My name is Robert M and I just recently retired after 36 years with the Lucas County Sheriff’s Office. I first came in contact with Stevin while he was working for the Common Pleas Court in Lucas County and was very impressed about his work from the very beginning. Over the years of my employment, I was close to Stevin when he was prosecuting cases and most recently when he was defending cases. Over the years I was employed by the Sheriff’s Office, I was in contact with attorneys on a daly basis but Stevin stood head and shoulders above most others in all aspects of his work. His professionalism shown toward and compassion to, all he came in contact with, was beyond reproach. Should I ever need an attorney myself, Stevin Groth would be the person I would turn to in my time of need, no matter what that need might be.

– Robert 

Aaron Misthal
It is never an easy situation working with lawyers but Aaron Misthal and his team made the experience pleasant and remedied each situation very well. I would recommend them for multiple legal needs.

Exceptional and Professional
Stevin is by far the best Lawyer that I have encountered. He is professional, knowledgeable and very patient. I have lived out of the country for the past 5 years and anytime I needed legal assistance he has always been there for me as if I was next door. I would strongly recommend Stevin Groth no matter what the circumstances are. His dedication and attention to detail is what’s appreciated the most. Thanks for all that you have done and you will continue to do for me.

– Lawrence 

Best Attorney in Toledo!!!
Attorney Allison Lawrence is by far the most upfront, and professional lawyer I have ever known. Under unfortunate circumstances I was in need of a defense attorney after being assaulted by multiple individuals in a bar parking lot in 2010. Although intoxicated, I was celebrating a huge accomplishment and was not driving. Since the officers were unsure as to the events that led to my assault, all parties were arrested. It was then that Allison was suggested by a friend to take on my case. Allison not only defended me, but was able to prove my innocence on all accounts, thus getting all charges dropped. I can not express my gratitude for her assistance. She saved me from being charged with a crime when I was innocent and also saved my career. I would recommend her to anyone needing the most expert lawyer in Toledo. Allison stands by her clients and follows through with all intentions of keeping the defendant from facing undesirable criminal consequences.

– Kelly 

One of the best Stevin Groth
Fortunately and also unfortunately i have had the pleasure of having Stevin Groth represent me. He is very professional and has a really good re pore with the courts in the Toledo area. I have always been very happy with his representation. One of his best attributes is his personal service. He always returns calls or messages promptly. I definitely would and have recommended Stevin Groth. I don’t even think about calling on any other attorney . One of , if not the best.

– Michael 

Awesome results!
I hired Allison about 2 years ago for a dispute with a neighbor. The situation got out of hand quickly and things escalated to me being sent to court. I knew without representation I would probably not fare very well. Allison was very knowledgeable and precise with what we should do. She did a very good job of taking the right course of action and I was very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

– Scott 

Worth Reading
Stevin Groth, a man of integrity. He is very knowledgeable. Stevin has come to my aid several times. He is an excellent presenter for schools or other organizations. Personally, my daughter just received her Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice. She is aspiring to be an attorney. Not knowing which direction she wanted to precede in, I asked Stevin could she “shadow” a day. Not only did she observe him in action, she was introduced to several people who shared valuable information with her. I highly recommend Attorney Stevin Groth.

– Susan 

Allison Lawrence
I would highly recommend Attorney Allison Lawrence, for she is not only an excellent attorney but she treated my husband with respect & he received results from her actions. Allison is kind hearted & stands by your side. I would definitely, if in need of a great attorney again hire Allison Lawrence!

– Patricia 

I would have been lost without Stevin!
My fiance & I were both in a bind within months of each other & we hired Stevin for both of our cases. My fiance was originally facing 3 serious charges & had a lot of prison time hanging over his head. With Stevin by his side, 2 of the charges were dropped & he was given a much lesser sentence than originally depicted. As far as my case, I had cases in 2 different counties & 4 charges, 3 of which were felonies. I was also looking at doing some time, but Stevin definitely saved my life, LITERALLY. I didn’t have to sit even one day in jail & I finished both of my cases felony free. I know if it weren’t for Stevin, I wouldn’t have been so fortunate. He is a very likable, caring guy & the first attorney I’ve ever heard of to hand out their cell phone number so you can reach them 24/7. I took full advantage of Stevin’s accessibility & he consoled me throughout my cases on nearly a daily basis, which is something he really didn’t have to do. I couldn’t have asked for anything more from Stevin. I will without a doubt contact him for any need I have in the future. I have recommended him to everyone I know & if you’re looking for a genuine, hardworking attorney that will get the job done, I recommend him to you as well.

– Kendra 

I’d hire her again
Allison has been awesome. She handled a traffic case for me and a false charge from an officer. I would hire her again and I refer her all the time

– Carrie 

Highly recommend.
Allison Lawrence came highly recommended through a close friend and I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome of my case. She was very professional and knowledgeable about my case and my options. She made herself available whether it was over the phone or before and after court with all my questions, concerns and fears. I would highly recommend Allison Lawrence for anyone who has a unfortunate run in with the law. I wouldn’t hesitate to call Allison Lawrence again should I come across a similar situation again.

– Valerie 

She’s on my Speed Dial, just in case.
Allison represented my son for a criminal/ traffic case. Even though there were many Continuances in the case, due to my son, she never seemed annoyed or anxious. She was very professional, on time, knowledgeable and down to earth. I especially appreciate her going out of her way to represent outside of the Toledo area. She always explained everything that was going on without belittling, as some lawyers tend to do to clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone, and that would include family members. I have added Allison to my speed dial just in case I would get into some trouble in the future.

– Roger 

Awesome attorney!
I can say from experience that Allison is the best attorney out there. Not only does she care about you as a client, but she also cares about each and every one of her clients on a personal level. She will be my first call if I’m ever in a situation that would require her abilities.

– Ben 

Miracle worker…knows the law.
I hired Allison after my son had rolled a flatbed truck loaded with tree logs. He was driving with a suspended license, had several out standing bench warrants for failures to show, court fines, in addition to bench warrants from Defiance, OH, for a domestic violence program he never completed, and owing fines. She got all charges dropped and his license reinstated, she drove him personally to Defiance court for his appearances. All he had to do was pay his fine. He was looking at doing time , Not one day.

– Luanna 

Allison Lawrence
Allison was fantastic, we hired her to help our nephew when he was in the wrong place at the wrong time and trusted the wrong people. She went above and beyond what was expected. She went to the place where the event occurred, obtained camera footage of what took place, and proved that my nephew was not the “mastermind ” but a “stupid” blind sheep who followed and trusted others. Without Allison he would be sitting in prison, with no future to look forward to.

– a client 

Great Lawyer
I have hired Allison several times and she always is prompt with returning calls and works very hard for her clients desired outcome. She comes from a family of Lawyers following in very big footsteps of her father. I would highly recommend her time and time again.

– Todd 

Dedicated, thorough, professional defense
Ms. Lawrence was my attorney when I was cited for OVI. In our initial consultation she was understanding and very thorough, and gave me a real-world expectation both of the process and also of the potential outcomes. There were substantial issues with the prosecution’s case against me, and Ms. Lawrence explained each issue so that I fully understood how she planned to defend me in court. Through multiple court dates she gave solid advice, and always clearly stated both what she knew would happen as well as what she expected to happen. In my case, her representation included her recommending that I NOT plead to a reduced charge that was offered early in the proceedings. In her opinion, we could do better. I trusted her counsel, and in the end my charges were reduced far beyond that initial offer. I entered the court room facing a large fine and a 3-day program (read: jail light). With Ms. Lawrence’s aid, I left the court room that day with a greatly reduced charge and had to pay court costs plus a $5 fine, no program or jail time. Heaven forbid I should ever need a defense attorney again, but if I ever do, Ms. Lawrence will be my first call.

– Doug 

Helped with a legal issue with my son
Allison, did a great job handling my sons case in Bowling Green , Ohio, she told us up front what she was able to try to do for him, and went right to work for my son, and was prompt, professional and courtesy and did a great job, and put a lot of hard work into my sons case, and the outcome was better than we thought, I would recommend Allison for any type of criminal Cases, and she will do her best to help you out.

– Ed 

Allison Lawrence goes above and beyond!!!!!
Allison represented me on several occasions and every time whether it was major or minor she got the job done in my favor every time. If I ever have a issue in the future she is the only person I would call!!!

– Anthony

Great Lawyer
Allison comes highly recommended. I retained her services for a troublesome problem that I had. She was very professional and handled my problem very well. I was so glad that I had her on my side. She knows her job in and out. I would and have recommended her to people that I know when they need a lawyer. When you have Allison on your side, you are in GREAT hands!!

– Jason 

One of the greats you will ever meet.
To fill the shoes of her father I’m not sure if she has or not. I’ve never met the man. I can tell you the same passion inside him that ive read about, seems to be what drives Her. If your looking for help from a great attorney you need not look any further. It is a true privilege to of hired Mrs. Lawrence. I feel confident that the attention to detail, boldness, integrity, she has will put you on track and bring you victory. I’ve watched her as a trial lawyer on and off about a dozen times now in the last 8 years or so. That’s why I hired her in my time of need. She cares. She makes a difference she definitely listens. She up holds a standard that people respect. She won’t let you harm your self in court and trys to protect you from the wrongs of others as well. She’s brilliant in the court room on trial and has a gift as a trial lawyer. She gets to the bottom of things in a way that few can. There’s so much I can say for attorney Allision Lawrence you’ll just have to hire her to see. She’s a deciated, hard working gifted lawyer, at trial the courtroom becomes her stage her arena, mostly because she’s right she’s completed the work necessary to be right and it shows. I have many small rants why she’s amazing. You’ll have to see for your self. If your looking for the best of the best. Look no further you’ve found her.

– Derrick

Allison is truly a spectacular lawyer! Ive used her more times than Id like to admit, both in Felony and Misdemeanor courts. She is the most caring lawyer Ive truly ever met. It was like she put herself in mine and my family’s shoes. She is very respectful, smart, courageous, upfront, trustworthy, sympathetic, caring, and always professional. Mix those all together and greatness is the result. I would recommend her to anyone. If your in a bind and need help, I would strongly suggest talking with her, you wont be disappointed!

Criminal defense
Endorse this attorney. I really appreciate that, despite was a Sunday call, he was very cooperative and we meet in a same day to discuss details. During the trial we can communicate all time with him, he was proactive and advice us all time. The fact that received sentence was what we expect, make me to recommend this attorney with all my trust.

– Cristina G. 

The Female James Sokolove of Ohio
For an attorney who can get you the legal help that you deserve, call Allison. She was able to represent me in a legal case in OH, and I could put my trust in her, to handle the situation without my presence in the state. Without her help, I would have been seriously lost in the system. I didn’t understand the charges, and she was able to confidently and competently represent me, without undue cost or trepidation. She’s the best representation in the State of Ohio, and I would/will use her services in the future if the need arises.

– a client

Allison isnt just an attorney to me she’s make apart of my family without her i might not be able to see my kids every day. I am very grateful to have ever met this woman and she will always be the one i call for anyone that is in need.

– Stephon 

awesome attorney
Allison has come to the rescue for me and my family every time we are in need of advice and when we don’t make the right decisions in life. She is the only attorney who I would say will go above and beyond for her clients. The last two cases I hired her for I had been arrested both on Friday nights, my wife, Laura contacted Allison, who was at a family event at the moment we contacted her, stop what she was doing contacted a judge and had a bond set up for me on both occasions. Anyone who is in the lucas county area, and gets into trouble knows, you have to wait til Monday morning for a bond. Allison came to the rescue I would say, which I never found that in any other local attorney I ever hired. Allison also had one of my felony cases dropped in Oregon court, which don’t happen to often, and wasn’t afraid to expose wrong doing from local officers. I had 17 felony charges in common pleas court, because of all Allisons hard work and bright thinking I ended up pleaing to two felony fours, so 15 felonies dismissed from felony ones on down. Great work and dedication is what I always get when I hire Allison. I found my attorney and im sticking with her thanks Ally for all the time and dedication only a few people like you out their;]

Allison not only met, but exceeded my expectations by accepting my case and being very thorough in collecting evidence in my defense. Allison went above and beyond, even after the case was over.
