Ohio Justice & Policy Center

We Don’t Write People Off

Who We Are

The Ohio Justice & Policy Center is a non-profit law firm, with offices in Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio, that fights for those lacking support within the criminal legal system. We demand equal justice and fair treatment for all people at every stage of incarceration— because a person deserves dignity after their conviction, and resources for people in Ohio as they navigate the complex and often expensive criminal justice system.

Second Chance Legal Clinics

Is a criminal record locking you out of life?

Our Second Chance Legal Clinics provide the best quality, most accessible legal advocacy, advice, and education to people with criminal records.

Please note: OJPC is hosting in-person and virtual clinics. Please bring a copy of your criminal record. You can obtain a copy of your police record at the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, located at the Hamilton County Justice Center.
