Professional Experience
Owner
Malek Law Firm LLC
- Current
I have been in practice since 2001. I have devoted my career to criminal defense work. In 2013, I obtained certifications from the National Highway Safety and Patrol (NHTSA). I am a certified NHTSA instructor and have instructed attorneys as well as law enforcement in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing. I also hold certificates in Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) training, and Drug Recognition Training (DRE). While my firm handles all types of felonies and misdemeanors, I have concentrated my efforts on drug and alcohol defenses. Due to my extensive knowledge in these fields, I am known as the OVI Queen. I am in good standing with the Supreme Court of Ohio and am an active member of the Ohio State Bar Association. I also hold certificates for the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and am licensed to take federal cases in the Federal Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered
Q. What does “bind over pw sent to cpc*LO” mean?
A: A bind over is where a defendant has been charged with a felony. The case begins in the municipal court or lower court and is ‘bound over’ to the CPC or Common Pleas Court. Remember that municipal courts can only hear misdemeanors not felonies. Felonies are in the jurisdiction of the Common Pleas Court of the county the crime occurred. If there are misdemeanors accompanying the felony then they will go over to the common pleas court along with the felony.
Q. Why would we continued arraignment court date?
A: Arraignment dates may be continued because all the evidence has not been brought into the prosecutor’s, by the officers who give them then tickets , so they may need more time. Often, we receive an initial charge, but sometimes all the facts aren’t there to charge further, there can others that come down with it and a grand jury has to look at those charges along with all the evidence presented to them…so, to answer your question, an arraignment date can be postponed because of that. And Arraignment is just a time where you go with your lawyer and you receive a formal copy of your indicted paperwork and enter you’re not guilty plea and possibly bond. The basics are done on that court date allow so your lawyer him can enter a

guilty plea for you, if that is your intent. Many times magistrates sitting in those positions, are unwilling to take a guilty plea, because they have to be given authority by the judge. They sit for to do that in many judges don’t allow that.

Q. My ex Has been moved out. Over 3 years It's been in text and person for her to come get her belongings can she sue me
A: Hello. Always take a look at your written lease as that governs a lien Aunt agreement, and what each party can do. Usually there would be a clause in that agreement discussing abandonment of property. It seems as if three years is a long time to wait to get items and therefore I would consider them abandoned. No backlash should happen to the owner, as long as he had made provisions for her to come get those things before those three years had last. The whole scenario would change if she had been locked out during the time she was able to get in and get her items.
