Operating a Vehicle under the Influence of Alcohol and/or Drugs (OVI)
(Also referred to as (DUI) Driving Under the Influence or (DWI) Driving While Impaired)
An OVI charge is a serious matter that can have far reaching consequences to you and your family. The OVI laws in Ohio are complex and have been significantly revised in recent years. It’s crucial that you hire the right attorney to defend your OVI case.
An OVI conviction is to be avoided if at all possible. A conviction can lead to jail time, fines, court costs, lengthy probation, mandatory drug/alcohol treatment, suspension of your drivers license, increased insurance costs and loss of employment. An OVI conviction is an enhanceable offense; a past conviction can be used to elevate the penalties of a subsequent offense and can eventually lead to felony charges.
