At the Law Firm of Richard A. Hostetler, we provide excellent representation in criminal cases, including DUI, drug charges, property crimes and homicide. Our decades of experience give us insight into complex white collar crime cases, including those involving alleged fraud or embezzlement.

Our experience also gives us a long view of every case. We work hard to defend our clients and help them limit the damage criminal charges can do to their lives, and sometimes part of that defense involves preparing for appeals and other post-conviction relief.


Appeals are different from trials in many respects, but the main difference from a practical standpoint is that where trials are primarily concerned with questions of fact, appeals are primarily concerned with questions of law. Because of this difference, an appellate lawyer needs a different set of skills in addition to those practiced by the average trial lawyer.

Our attorney's decades of experience give him insight into resolving highly complex cases and protecting our clients' rights.
