Portrait of Brad Koffel


With founding partner Brad Koffel at the helm, Koffel Brininger Nesbitt is one of the most recognizable criminal defense and DUI firms in the state of Ohio. With more than 15,000 clients served and a 98% approval rating among clients, the firm has been voted one of the best law firms in the country by U.S. News & World Report and for good reason—they’re reshaping lives and communities for the better. “I don’t know where it comes from, but there’s a fight inside [me], a drive, and I’ve got an acute sense of justice, of right and wrong. I’m fascinated by philosophy, spirituality, psychology, what makes people tick...inequity drives me crazy, and someone’s gotta get in there and battle for them.”
