Falke & Dunphy, LLC


Criminal Misdemeanors & Expungement

Most of the attorneys at Falke & Dunphy, LLC served the Miami Valley as prosecutors, including Lee Falke who was the Montgomery County prosecutor for 29 years. We bring this training and experience to our representation of individuals accused of crimes. We take the time to track down evidence and talk to witnesses. This thorough approach to case preparation has earned us a reputation of successfully resolving criminal cases – frequently without the need for a trial.

Generally, first time offenders may have their criminal record expunged (or sealed), thereby permitting them to deny lawfully that they were ever charged with convicted of the crime. Not all crimes can be expunged. However, the laws regarding expungements in Ohio have changed from time to time. We would encourage you to speak to one of our attorneys to determine whether we can help you expunge your criminal record.

Traffic Cases – DUI, OVI & DUS

While the tough drunk driving laws in Ohio have certainly decreased the number of drunken driving deaths, police officers are still required to follow the law and it is not unusual that a motorist may be wrongly accused. As former prosecutors, we understand the mistakes police may make and can help you bring a successful defense to the charge of Driving Under the Influence.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is so much more than just physical abuse that happens in the confines of a family’s home. With nearly a quarter of a century working with victims of violence, we understand the dynamics of intimate partner violence. We can bring all the various aspects of the legal system to assist in finding an end to the violence including Civil Protection Orders and Child Custody Orders as well as criminal defense of victims accused of crimes.

We respect the rights of victims to make their own choices and to change their minds. You will be supported and treated with compassion. No one here will ever say “I told you so.” Rather we will walk with you through the process.


Mediation is more than just working with a third party to create a resolution to a problem. A successful mediation requires careful planning and strategy. The members of our firm have the training and experience to assist you to prepare for mediation so that you can maximize your opportunity for a successful result using this alternative dispute resolution process.

Consumer Claims

The goal of consumer protection laws is to place consumers, who are average citizens engaging in business deals such as buying goods or borrowing money, on an even par with companies or citizens who regularly engage in business. Consumers inadvertently and frequently fall victim to misconduct by area businesses operating in a variety of sectors. Both state and federal laws play a role in regulating consumer law. These laws range from prohibiting false advertising and imposing product safety measures to regulating debt collection practices and protecting consumers’ identifying information. Consumers often find themselves needing legal help after falling victim to an online scam, purchasing a car or other product without being told of hidden defects, or losing money in financial schemes, such as identity theft or unauthorized credit card charges. Hiring an attorney early in this process can help you decide the best method for seeking enforcement of consumer protection laws.

School Discipline Cases

Education laws relate to how our schools operate. They cover matters like educational standards, school district and school board authority, student attendance, discipline, and dress code requirements. Our firm represents parents who have issues with their children’s education. For example, if you think your child has been improperly suspended from school, our firm will help you determine if challenging the suspension is within your legal rights. Each state, and sometimes even each public school district, has specific rules for school discipline. There are also general principles of federal law that apply. It’s important to know your child has legal rights that apply to public school suspensions. Prevent the situation from going from bad to worse by ensuring your child is treated legally and fairly in the school discipline process.

Medical Privileges & Defense

We provide medical license defense for all types of medical practitioners. We represent and counsel professional clients in licensure and medical staff privilege matters. We handle matters on behalf of physicians, dentists, pharmacists, podiatrists, chiropractors, nurses and other licensed health care providers practicing in Ohio. We have assisted several prominent physicians in defeating attempts by hospital administrators to revoke their medical privileges.

For a healthcare provider, there can be serious consequences of licensing actions or hospital, actions by other hospitals, and negative reports to state and national accrediting agencies. If you are facing a health care investigation or a potential adverse action by a hospital against your staff privileges, you cannot take a casual approach to this predicament. Do not attempt to resolve the matter by yourself; hospital administrators and lawyers must be dealt with firmly and professionally. Due to the serious impact of sanctions or disciplinary actions, medical providers should obtain experienced legal representation immediately.
