Drunk Driving Charges in Ohio

DUI/OVI defense should begin as soon as possible. As soon as you are arrested or charged, you need to contact an attorney. You only have 7 days to appeal the automatic Administrative License Suspension after being arrested for OVI. We can help you try to retain your driving privileges, or obtain the right to drive for occupational, medical, or educational purposes.

We handle every aspect of DUI/OVI defense, from the initial appearance to the completion of the court process. We handle issues involving licensing, insurance, plea negotiation and trial. We verify all the facts of the cases and check to see that law enforcement followed all laws, rules, and regulations. Whatever your case requires, we will be there to give you the professional representation you deserve.

One of our goals in any DUI/OVI defense is to reduce the charges and minimize or eliminate the penalties for the offense. We can refer you to the appropriate professionals for drug and alcohol assessments. For first time offenders, we can help you with a Driver Intervention Program. We will explore your options and tailor a defense to fit your situation.

We can investigate whether there was a legal stop, sufficient evidence to request the test, and whether the administration of the test itself was proper.
