One client recently came to the firm with drug crime charges. She is the single mother of one child and has no prior criminal history. She was having a party at her house when a neighbor called the police with a noise complaint. When the police responded to the complaint, they noticed drug paraphernalia in plain sight in the house. They arrested the mother with drug charges.

In the state of Ohio, a drug crime carries a mandatory minimum six-month license suspension. This means that for at least half a year, this mother may have been forced to abstain from driving. When she came to Gounaris Abboud, LPA, were able to convince the prosecutor in the case to amend the charges to a mere disorderly conduct charge. This is only a minor misdemeanor. This means that our client did not have to deal with a license suspension, and was not required to spend any time in jail.
