Troy D. Wisehart – Sandusky Criminal Defense Attorney

The criminal justice system is complex. Every court is different; every judge is unique. How they look at procedures, their procedural preferences, the way they handle dockets — to be effective in the courtroom, you must study it all.

Troy has spent decades doing exactly that. He’s represented more than 1,000 people accused of crimes in state and federal courts and knows how to successfully lead his clients through the system and out the other side.

He’s navigated a broad range of criminal charges and high-level felony cases for his clients, including defense of DUI, assault, domestic violence, theft, sex offenses, and drug charges.

Whether it’s having unlawfully obtained evidence dismissed or challenging DUI test results, Troy provides unmatched representation. No case is too far gone, and Troy can help you understand your defense options and find ways to provide reasonable doubt in your case.

With a thorough understanding of Ohio law, Troy is comfortable taking your case to trial when you are facing charges for a DUI or other criminal offense. He knows your rights and could inform you on ways to reduce or dismiss your charges, such as pretrial diversion programs.

When you opt out of legal help, you may not receive the most desired outcome. Although no outcome is guaranteed, past clients have reaped the benefits of hiring criminal defense attorney Troy D. Wisehart.

With insights honed over decades of practice, Troy maps out the likely scenarios, predicts how certain judges will rule on particular legal issues, and brings clarity to the murky gray areas of the law.

And he does it all with the compassion of someone who’s experienced the criminal justice system firsthand. As a college student, Troy made a mistake — like many of his clients — that did not define his character yet resulted in a criminal charge. The charges were dropped, but the memory of his experience and the way his attorney treated him with respect and dignity continue to guide his own practice as an attorney.

He gets to know his clients as people, not case numbers, and fights to shed light on their true character in the courtroom.

No matter the charge, Troy acts as a committed advocate and guide, giving his clients no doubt that they’ll get through it – together.
