Downs Legal Services

Using the law to lift people up.

Erin A. Downs is an attorney practicing in Lorain County Ohio and Cuyahoga County Ohio. The firm handles criminal, traffic, O.V.I. and Bankruptcy cases.


Using the law to lift people up.

In 2006 I graduated from The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. After graduation, and passing the bar, I was given the opportunity to work with a few wonderfully talented attorneys. 

After starting my family, I decided to start my own practice. I was fortunate to get the support from one of my mentors and was able to open my practice in August, 2009.

I have focused my legal efforts in fighting for the rights of the accused in Lorain County. I have represented clients who have been accused of marijuana possession, drug possession, Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence, Rape, Homicide, and a host of other crimes.

What I have learned from practicing law is:
Every client is an individual!
Every case is different.
Every person should be treated with respect.
Always return phone calls!
