Ohio crimes are not created equal. Like every state, Ohio categorizes its crimes into one of two broad categories — misdemeanors and felonies. Within those categories, there are 11 subcategories of crimes, five for misdemeanors and six for felonies. The first degree of each is the most serious of its parent category, save for felonies. In Ohio, there is such a thing as an “unclassified felony.” An unclassified felony is a classification reserved for the most two serious felonies in Ohio — murder and aggravated murder. Each of these crimes carries its own specific penalties, which are far more serious than a standard first-degree penalty.
Regardless of how serious the crime for which you were arrested is, our Springfield criminal defense attorneys are prepared to help you combat the charges and protect your freedom. Some charges we have successfully fought include the following:

We are always willing to represent our clients at trial and to present mitigating factors at sentencing if need be.

As a Dayton Attorney, I have have both worked with Anthony and battled against him in Court for over 25 years. He is a great litigator and a fierce advocate for his client! Besides that, his word is his bond!
Make the Call! Call the VanNoy Firm first!! I spent days, calling around to different firms seeking legal assistance. Our lives can change in an instant and if you are faced with a legal challenge, call the VanNoy Firm! I was blessed to have the support, guidance and overall experience that I did with the VanNoy Firm. Kristie Gotwald represented me in a Child Custody Case. Kristie’s commitment to my case was exceptional. Kristie’s communication, not only with me but also with the court and the opposing layer, kept me confident that Kristie was continuing to fight for justice everyday.…
