I have been practicing law in the Cleveland Ohio area for almost 25 years. The last 10 years have been devoted to defending drunk driving cases. You are probably contacting a DUI defense attorney because you have been charged with drunk driving or as it is now called OVI. Being an OVI defense attorney, I know you have suffered probably the most traumatic and degrading event you have ever experienced.
You were handcuffed, put in the back of a police cruiser, fingerprinted , photographed and put in a cell. Your license has been taken away and you cannot legally drive. I want you to know that you are not a criminal. I would venture to say that at least 95% of the population, including judges, prosecutors, and even OVI/DUI attorneys have committed the crime that you are now charged with.
From here on out you will no longer be treated like a criminal, you will be treated with the dignity & respect that all citizens deserve.
I know and study the ever changing laws relevant to criminal drunk driving DUI/OVI charges. Equally important, I know the Cleveland area judges and prosecutors. Every judge views and handles a drunk driving case differently. By way of example, some courts require specific procedures to have your impounded vehicle returned while others do not. The same is true concerning granting occupational privileges.
One of my first goals in representing my clients is to have their vehicles returned to them and getting them back on the road legally so they can get on with their lives. Once those goals are accomplished I take the legal procedures that protect your rights as any OVI/DUI lawyer should. I am available 24/7.
