Fairfield County Common Pleas Attorney


All adult felonies committed in Fairfield County are assigned in the Common Pleas Court after an indictment or information is filed. Before indictment, an adult felony may be in the Municipal Court briefly for a bond hearing. 

A case in the Fairfield County Common Pleas Court begins with a first court date, called an arraignment. Depending on the charge, a Defendant will either receive a summons to court or be arrested and transported to court by the county. At this first court date, the Defendant enters a "guilty" or "not guilty" plea. 

Cases are overseen by Judges Richard Berens and David Trimmer. 

Cases in the Fairfield County Common Pleas Court from possession of drugs to felonious assault and beyond, are charges that Attorney Brandon E. Shroy has successfully defended for the last 12 years.  

Very satisfied with the representation from Brandon. Confident in his advice and knowledgeable in possible outcomes. Above all else he was very reassuring during court appearances with me. I highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a great lawyer.
