Akron, OH Criminal Defense Attorney

Advocating for your rights

Getting arrested can be an embarrassing and horrifying experience. It can affect every aspect of your life, including your bank account, your job and the relationship you have with your family. Your freedom — or even your life — may be at stake. Armed with 10 years of experience in criminal defense, Charles Tyler is ready to protect your rights and help you attain the best possible result for your case.

Methodical and thorough investigation of your case

Charles is devoted to protecting his clients’ freedom. He challenges the prosecution to prove its case and seeks to eliminate or reduce any potential sentence. He knows that witnesses may lie on the stand, that crime scenes can be tampered with and that police officers can make mistakes. He personally speaks with witnesses to ensure that they are telling the whole truth and carefully examines the alleged crime scene, searching for evidence that can help prove your innocence. He also pores over police records and retains experts to challenge the prosecution’s theories if it aids in your defense.

Strong trial lawyer

Charles approaches every case as though he were going to trial. Because of his meticulous preparation and in-depth investigation of your case, he is often able to negotiate with the prosecution for a more favorable plea. If a trial can lead to a more just verdict, Charles is prepared to aggressively advocate for your rights in the courtroom.

When bad things happen to good people

Because sometimes good people make mistakes and innocent people get caught in the system, Charles actively pushes for alternative programs that can mitigate punishments or avoid prosecution. Having regularly worked with first-time offenders, Charles knows these programs inside and out and can quickly determine your eligibility and assertively facilitate your access to these opportunities if it is in your best interest to do so.
