DUI / OVI Defense

A DUI charge (known as OVI in Ohio) can be a humiliating and sometimes unexpected experience – especially for first time offenders. The legal limit for alcohol in the blood or is .08 for standard drivers and .04 for commercial drivers. Since the influence of alcohol on an individual varies depending on the person and the circumstances surrounding consumption, a person may not even be aware he or she is over the legal limit until a field test is administered.

Even if you think you could be guilty, you should know that with Ohio DUI arrests there are several factors that must be present for a DUI conviction. It is possible you could be charged with a lesser offense, or if your rights were violated, for the charges to be dropped. Don’t give up just because you believe you made a mistake. Every alleged offender has a right to due process, including you.
