Cincinnati Criminal Defense Attorney

Cincinnati DUI Attorney

Nobody expects to be pulled over and arrested for drinking and driving, but now you are at the police station and facing criminal charges. According to Ohio state law, you can be arrested at any time you are deemed to be driving “under the influence of alcohol, a drug of abuse, or any combination of them.” Your officer is telling you that your case is open and shut, with no hope of a defense. What can you do? Your first step should always be to call a skilled Cincinnati criminal lawyer for help.

Our Cincinnati Criminal Lawyer Provides Skillful Defense

Our Cincinnati criminal lawyers are smart, aggressive, and ready to fight for you. We have successfully defended clients throughout Cincinnati and surrounding counties against all types of criminal charges, including DUI (driving under the influence) or OVI (operating a vehicle while intoxicated).

You may not have known this, but when you are arrested for OVI in Cincinnati you are entitled to two separate trials. The first is an administrative hearing with the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles, and you have ten days from your arrest to file a request for this hearing. This gives you the chance to fight for reinstatement of your driver’s license, and if you win you could stop your license suspension process in its tracks. We can help you file the appropriate paperwork and present your case before the BMV during this hearing.

The next hurdle is your criminal trial. Our attorneys have years of experience dealing with DUI law, and we know all the proper procedure for an arrest. We thoroughly examine the evidence at hand, from police notes to the results of your breath and blood tests, working with forensics experts and other specialists to expose any gaps in the prosecution’s case or errors in arrest procedure that could lead to a full dismissal.

Drinking and driving carries serious consequences, from heavy fines to jail time even for a first-time misdemeanor. If you are facing DUI or OVI charges in Cincinnati, don’t take chances with your freedom by going unrepresented. Contact us to schedule a free consultation with a top Cincinnati criminal lawyer today.
