We Defend Licensed Professionals Facing Criminal Proceedings

Every criminal accusation is serious, but when you are a doctor, nurse or another type of professional, criminal sanctions can have long-lasting consequences. A conviction can affect your ability to practice and even trigger a license suspension. At Sindell and Sindell, LLP, our attorneys are committed to providing comprehensive criminal defense for professionals facing criminal charges.

With more than five decades of combined legal experience, attorneys Steven and Rachel Sindell are aggressive criminal defense advocates. In many cases, the criminal misconduct in question has no relationship to the defendant's work or ability to perform professional duties. Our lawyers provide solid advocacy and will represent you to the best of our abilities.

Delivering Comprehensive Defense Representation

If charged with a crime, there is no time to waste. Police and prosecutors immediately gather evidence that might be used in court, so you need a skilled defense attorney. We will assist you with:

  • Misdemeanor and felony charges — We understand the special considerations that exist when a professional is accused of criminal misconduct. We will not only pursue a dismissal or acquittal of the charges, but we will also work to reach fair agreements on sentencing to minimize the negative impact on your career.
  • Professional license defense — In proceedings before the State Medical Board of Ohio, the Ohio Board of Nursing and other supervisory bodies, our lawyers passionately defend professionals who face license sanctions. Regardless of the charge you are contending with, we make sure the officials know the whole story.
  • Effects of convictions and sentences — Convictions do not always result in incarceration. However, a conviction can have a lasting impact on your career. A conviction of OWI or drug possession could raise questions about whether you are at risk of being impaired on the job. A restriction imposed on driving or leaving home might prevent you from serving your clients. Our firm focuses on providing the big picture and presses for a result that allows you to continue your professional service.

Whether you are a nurse, physician, lawyer or another type of professional, we will take every step possible to reach a favorable outcome.
