“Attorney Billak was recommended to me by a friend who is also an attorney. After meeting with Billak Law, I found him to have the qualities that I was looking for, that being honesty, integrity and loyalty. He has a good understanding of people and their needs when it relates to the law. I would highly recommend him to anyone.”

Carole R., November 2015

“I had a court date with Attorney Billak and I just wanted you to pass on some words to him. The event that made me seek his legal assistance was a very emotional for me. You should know I don’t take it lightly. Each and every time I have an appointment associated with it, I am a nervous wreck. He is always calming and does his best to put me at ease. My entire experience with your office has been a pleasant one and I appreciate that more than you can imagine. I want you both to know that while I hope no one I know ever needs your assistance, if anyone does I will certainly recommend your office without hesitation. Thank you both for being the only light in this dark tunnel I have put myself in.”

T.M., January 2017

A grand jury indictment returned in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio creates a universe of problems that are quite distinct from those that people face in the State criminal justice system.



Under most circumstances, driving while intoxicated will be charged as a misdemeanor. If you were involved in an accident, however, you might be facing a felony charge in addition to your DUI arrest. Billak Law can help.



If you have been charged or implicated in a drug offense, whether it be a misdemeanor or felony under Ohio or Federal law, you have rights. Billak Law is prepared and ready to defend you.



Firearm laws in Ohio strictly govern the use, sale, distribution, importation and transportation of weapons and closely regulate citizens’ rights to own and carry. Because firearm laws change so frequently, both confusion and unnecessary arrests have increased exponentially. Billak Law can guide you.



Many of Billak Law’s clients are charged with offenses in the Ohio and Federal justice system. However, Billak Law recognizes the importance of providing skilled defense of simple speeding and other traffic offenses. Every case is important because every client is important to Billak Law.
