What experiences (work and personal) help you to be a better attorney?
My practice as a criminal trial lawyer at the R. William Meeks Co. LPA since 1999 has prepared me to represent a wide variety of clients in all kinds of serious criminal cases. I have substantial jury trial experience around Ohio in complex criminal litigation in state and federal courts, including fraud, ethics, conspiracy, narcotics, homicide, and sex abuse cases. I also have extensive appellate experience and have argued more than fifty times in different courts of appeals. Finally, I am board certified as a criminal trial advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and a member of the Criminal Justice Act Panel of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.
What makes your law firm unique?
Our firm is exceptional because we are able to provide a comprehensive array of services at all stages of a criminal case. The investigators, expert witnesses, and support staff who work with us are all experienced professionals who assist in the management of our clients’ cases. We also maintain good relationships with law enforcement agencies and prosecutors at the state and federal levels. We take a pro-active approach to case preparation, even before charges are filed, which allows us to evaluate problems at an early stage and secure optimal outcomes for our clients. Finally, we are unique because we have earned substantial recognition from our peers. I am the youngest Columbus lawyer listed in the current edition of Best Lawyers in America in the field of criminal defense and am a 2012 Rising Star in Super Lawyers. I regularly provide presentations to other attorneys on the subjects of evidence and trial practice.
Describe your personal interests and hobbies.
I am an avid distance runner. When time allows, I also travel abroad.
Describe your charitable activities.
I am a member of the Columbus Bar Foundation and participate in the Columbus Bar Association’s Homeless Project. I also serve on the Professional Ethics Committee of the Columbus Bar. In addition, I frequently represent political protestors and persons engaged in acts of civil disobedience.
