Dublin DUI Attorney
Arrested for DUI? Take this opportunity to talk to a Dublin DUI/OVI attorney at the Koffel Law Firm to find out what you can do to contest your charges and avoid a conviction.
Drunk driving is most frequently referred to as DUI, or driving under the influence. In Ohio law, this offense is referred to as OVI or operating a vehicle impaired. A driver may face DUI/OVI charges if he or she is accused of being in control of a vehicle (including motorized vehicles as well as bikes, scooters, lawnmowers and even golf carts) under either or both of the following circumstances:
- While with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater, as proven by a valid breath test or blood test; and/or
- While "impaired" by alcohol or a controlled substance, including illegal drugs and prescription or even over-the-counter drugs.
The government will use field sobriety test results and breath or blood test results in an attempt to secure a conviction against a driver. It will be up to your
DUI defense lawyer to challenge this evidence from every possible angle in order to seek a dismissal or acquittal.
Why You Need a Dublin DUI Defense Lawyer
Dublin DUI/OVI charges are a technical matter. Though you took and allegedly failed a breath test, for example, a skilled lawyer will know what to look for in errors or violations of your rights in the administration of a test of this kind. The same applies to the manner in which you were arrested as well as your performance on field sobriety tests. All of this evidence may be challenged in one way or another; your attorney will need to determine the best possible approach.
