Attorney Profile

As the founder of the Joslyn Law Firm in Columbus, Ohio, Brian D. Joslyn focuses his practice in the area of criminal defense, representing clients who face almost any type of criminal charge, including violent crimes, sexual crimes, property crimes and juvenile crimes. He also represents clients in criminal appeals. His firm serves the Columbus metropolitan area, including Franklin, Pickaway, Madison, Delaware, Licking and Fairfield counties.

Mr. Joslyn has said that his personal experience inspired his dedication to protecting the rights of people accused of crimes. As a student, he was badly beaten by police and wrongfully arrested outside a college campus block party. He recovered from his injuries and was ultimately acquitted of all charges against him, but the experience left him with a profound understanding of the ways the authorities can abuse their power. It convinced him to become a lawyer, in order to protect the rights of his clients and uphold a sense of fairness and justice.

After graduating with honors from Franklin University in Columbus, Mr. Joslyn earned his law degree from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, California, where he also graduated with honors. He is licensed to practice law in all Ohio state courts.

In addition to his law practice, Mr. Joslyn is also a member of a variety of legal organizations, including the Columbus Bar Association, the Ohio State Bar Association and the American Bar Association. He is also a member of the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the National College for DUI Defense and the National Lawyers Guild’s National Police Accountability Project. In 2014, Mr. Joslyn was named one of the top 10 attorneys in Ohio by the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys.
