Take Immediate Action If You Are Charged With An Ohio OVI
In Ohio, Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence (OVI) is a serious criminal offense with serious penalties. If you think it’s expensive to hire a good OVI attorney, just wait until you wager your future with a “plea” lawyer or risk not fighting your charges with experienced, knowledgeable OVI attorneys.

An Effective And Personalized OVI Defense
The most important thing you can do when facing OVI charges is to create a strategic and robust defense. You need to understand where law enforcement may have overstepped and how they may have made mistakes. Our lawyers will review every aspect of your arrest and the evidence to build the best possible case. In addition to those who are accused of driving under the influence of alcohol, we can also help if your case involves drug-related crimes.
There are many ways to challenge Ohio OVI charges, including:
- Was there probable cause?
- Did the officer conduct an illegal search and seizure?
- Did the officer follow police protocol during the stop?
- Was the breathalyzer properly tuned, and was the officer properly trained?
We will challenge any faulty or illegally-obtained evidence and work to get charges reduced or dismissed whenever possible. We will discuss your options and goals during the criminal defense process. Our lawyers are not afraid of the courtroom, and we can aggressively represent you before a judge.
Commercial Drivers And OVIs
Ohio OVI charges are disastrous for commercial and professional drivers whose livelihoods are in jeopardy. Even a first-time OVI charge can lead to a commercial driver being barred from driving for a year. If you are a commercial driver charged with an OVI, we will work to protect your job and freedom.
