Do I need an OVI/DUI Defense Lawyer?
OVI/DUI Defense needs to start early.
You were driving home after a night out when you see a police car pull behind your vehicle. You get nervous because you had a drink, but you’re not drunk. Are you?
The officer approaches and asks you where you are coming from and asks you to get out of the vehicle. You do what the officer says, perform his tests, and you feel like you have done well and everything the officer has asked.
The officer still arrests you
You are now facing Ohio’s charge of Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated (OVI) also known as Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and Driving Under the Influence (DUI). (The statute can be found here.) You are now confused, angry, embarrassed, angry, and scared.
If this story sounds familiar to you, please contact us so that we can help you gather all of the evidence against and for you as early as possible. Local police departments do not keep videos indefinitely and it is important to hire an attorney who knows where to get the reports and videos necessary to defend your case.
At McMullen Law Office, LLC, we understand what you are feeling. Facing an OVI charge can have dramatic consequences on you, your family, and your finances. We understand that you are concerned about more than fines and jail – you are worried about your professional life and your reputation. Our OVI/DUI Defense practice focuses on resolving your case for you – not just closing a file and collecting a fee.
Nursing applications now ask whether you have been convicted of an OVI. If you possess a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), you can be disqualified from your profession – driving – for a year or longer. To make matters worse, traffic convictions (such as OVI) cannot be expunged and will remain on your record; it will appear on a background check; it could drive up your insurance costs. Convictions for Alcohol Offenses will need to be disclosed on professional applications.
In a typical first OVI you are facing a mandatory license suspension, a fine, a minimum three days in jail or in a driving course and up to 180 days in jail, and a period of probation.
