The Legal Consequences and Severity of DUI/OVI Charges

Being arrested and charged for a DUI or OVI in Ohio is a severe crime with significant consequences. It can result in license suspensions, fines and even jail time. Depending on a number of factors, such as if ever convicted of a DUI in the past, the consequences can become more severe for repeat offenders.

The Importance of Hiring an Experienced Lawyer for Defense

If you are facing criminal charges involving a DUI or OVI charge, it is critical that you speak with a criminal defense lawyer as soon as you are able to. There are a number of reasons this is important, especially early in the process. The criminal process is very complex and many people make inadvertent mistakes that hurt their case. You may have heard the phrase “anything you say can be used against you” but without a specific knowledge of criminal law, you may not know exactly how what you say or do can hurt your case. That’s the main reason having an attorney present to assist and represent you is absolutely essential.
