In the United States, the Constitution provides those who are facing criminal charges the right to defend themselves against charges and the right to competent legal defense throughout the process. What’s more, someone who is charged with a crime in our country is presumed innocent until proven guilty. And, to “prove” someone guilty, the prosecution must offer evidence that proves the fact of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Such a standard can be more difficult to satisfy if a defendant is represented by a skilled, experienced, and aggressive criminal defense lawyer. 

At the law office of Groth & Associates, our Fremont, OH criminal defense lawyers provide the quality legal defense services that those facing charges need and deserve. If you have been charged with a crime in our city, please reach out to our lawyers directly today to learn more about our legal services and how we can help.

If you are facing criminal charges, the decision to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer in Fremont may be one of the best choices you ever make. Top reasons to work with a skilled attorney include:

  • A conviction has serious penalties. Depending on the crime of which you’ve been accused, being convicted of that crime could have serious, long-term penalties. These penalties include jail or prison time and a large fine. You may also be asked to perform community service, serve a period of probation or parole, attend a mandatory education or rehabilitation classes, and more.
  • A conviction will affect your life long-term. Know that when you are facing criminal charges and a conviction looks imminent, you’re not just going to be dealing with the penalties assessed under the law (prison time, fines, etc.); instead, you’ll also face a number of social and lifestyle consequences as a result of the conviction, too. For example, you may be barred from certain employment types, could have custody of your children revoked, and may be stigmatized by your community. 
  • Working with an attorney may improve your case outcome. While there is no guarantee that working with an attorney will result in a conviction of innocence, working with an attorney generally does improve the outcome of your case. An attorney will know how to file motions to suppress certain evidence types, will be able to gather evidence to defend you against the prosecution’s claims, and can advise you regarding whether or not negotiating a plea bargain is advised. Working with an attorney could result in dropped charges, reduced charges, a less harsh sentence, or a court finding of your innocence.
  • You’ll be more informed when you choose professional legal representation. The criminal defense process can be extremely complex and complicated, and you may be feeling overwhelmed and uncertain as you navigate the process. Working with an attorney can add clarity – your attorney will serve as a guide who is well-equipped to represent you throughout the process and ensure that you understand everything you need to know.

Words from our clients

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.


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.
