We will Tell Your Story–the True Story–While Aggressively Protecting Your Rights in the Criminal Justice System

Fighting for those falsely accused of crimes

Being accused of a crime by the government is a terrifying experience. The stress is overwhelming, especially when the allegations carry significant prison time and threaten to destroy your life, your family, and your reputation. You might be unsure of your legal rights. You might not know where to turn for help. To make matters worse, you watch in horror as your free lawyer cowers in fear when facing the judge and the prosecutor–and then tells you to cop out without listening to your story and without making an attempt to understand you as a human being. For 30 years Attorney Chris Maher has watched that scenario play out over and over in criminal cases across Ohio. There is nothing that sickens him more.

We fight relentlessly to achieve the goals of our clients and we are not afraid to try your case to a jury. If you or a loved one has been arrested, charged with a crime, or is under investigation for a supposed crime, contact The Law Offices of Christopher Scott Maher, LLC.

If this is the first time you’ve felt the crushing weight of law enforcement pressing down on you or a loved one in a way that seems intended to ruin your life, rip apart your family, and destroy your reputation, then it’s time to take action now.

If this is not your first dance with the police, then you already know what it’s like to be continuously viewed as a target by cops and prosecutors. In fact, if you have had past run-ins with the law, then you are particularly susceptible to both false accusations and completely unfair and overblown charges.

For 30 years, we have brought innovative solutions to criminal cases in Ohio. If you’re ready to fight back, contact us.

  • Judicial Release, Parole, Post-Release Control, and Probation — We handle post-conviction matters, including petitions for judicial release, and issues relating to parole, post-release control, and probation violations.
  • Expungements, Sealing the Records — If you’re looking to remove a past conviction from your record in order to pursue new employment, to buy a house, or to simply show that you have made positive changes in your life, we believe you should not be burdened by mistakes of the past. Or if you were charged with a crime, but never convicted, we can assist by petitioning to seal the arrest and charging record. We help legally eligible clients pursue sealing and expungements.

We will never apologize for serving as your guardian against excessive and abusive law enforcement tactics.
