Criminal charges – whether felonies, misdemeanors, drug charges or other types – can be extremely stressful to you as well as your friends and family. The criminal court process will be extremely stressful, and its outcome could change the course of your life. It is highly important that you have a criminal defense attorney by your side who is not only well-versed and experienced in the law and procedure, but also understands forensic evidence.
As a former Assistant Prosecutor in Lake County Ohio, Cleveland criminal defense lawyer Matthew Bangerter has experience with the strategies used by prosecutors to pursue their cases. As a member of the Ohio Bar Association, Lake County Bar Association, Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association, Cuyahoga Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and a member of the Board of Directors of the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, he takes his profession as an Ohio criminal defense attorney seriously and ensures that he is up to date with the latest case law and trial strategies.
Forensic evidence is incredibly important in criminal cases, and Matthew Bangerter’s scientific background gives him an edge when evaluating forensic evidence involved in a criminal case. He obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in biology and studied molecular genetics and computer programming at graduate school. He is one of very few criminal defense attorneys who has actually cloned his own DNA in a lab, so he is well-versed in the scientific evidence involved in various criminal cases.
Matthew has been certified by the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) in the Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) program as well as to administer the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs). This specialized training enables him to thoroughly scrutinize the administration of those tests and present the best possible defense in OVI/DUI cases.
