Our Experienced Youngstown Attorney Fights for You

Rhys Brendan Cartwright-Jones, Attorney & Counselor at Law is capable of going the extra mile for you in your case.

Our experienced Youngstown attorney knows how to handle these cases and can be an effective advocate for you from start to finish.

Our firm offers the following benefits:

  • Over 10 years of legal experience
  • Experience as a former prosecutor
  • A free consultation to get you started

To learn more about your legal options and how we may be able to help you, call (330) 299-4077 for a free consultation with our Youngstown lawyer.

Criminal Appeals Cases

We have practiced before state and federal appeals courts and secured numerous reversals on behalf of many of our clients who were facing criminal charges.

Some highlights include the following:

  • Acquittal of recent rape indictment in whole
  • Acquittal of cocaine charges in whole
  • Acquittal of menacing charges in whole
  • Acquittal of two out of four murder counts
  • Acquittal of criminal trespass charges

In addition, we have had a death penalty reduced to a probation sentence, and we reversed a dozen sex and violent crimes convictions.

Civil Appeals Cases

Over the years, our founding attorney has accrued a positive track record of trial verdicts and pre-litigation results. In a recent case, Attorney Rhys represented a business and secured a dismissal of a case involving discrimination in which the plaintiff was demanding $300,000. In other cases, he was able to secure dismissal of various trade secret fraud claims and breach of contract claims in federal court.

Criminal Defense for Immigrants

Criminal charges are always serious, but when deportation is on the line, the stakes are even higher. Immigrants face unique challenges when it comes to being criminally charged, and it’s important that you get an attorney on your side who knows how to effectively advocate on your behalf. Attorney Rhys has a solid track record of being able to vacate criminal convictions and pleas to reverse deportation orders.

Discuss Your Options with a Former Prosecutor

When you hire our firm, you benefit from years of experience and the insight of a former prosecutor, meaning that we have a detailed understanding of how the opposition will prosecute your case. We thoroughly investigate your case and consider all the options you have available to you. We cannot guarantee any one outcome, but we are passionate about providing top-tier personal service to each of our clients, treating their cases as if they were our own.
