Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated (“OVI”) is a serious charge and can have extreme consequences, including high fines, loss of driver’s license (and therefore, potential job loss), higher insurance premiums, driver intervention programs, and possible incarceration. These consequences can have a major impact on an individual and his/her family. Our Criminal Defense Group, comprised of two former prosecuting attorneys, has the experience and lengthy history of successfully representing clients charged with OVI or DUI. Both attorneys are well-respected by prosecutors, court administrators, and judges in Hamilton County, Clermont County, and elsewhere within the State of Ohio. The attorneys in the Criminal Defense Group help guide clients and their families through the overwhelming court process defending against OVI and DUI charges to achieve the best possible outcomes. We are available whenever you need assistance.
Our Criminal Defense attorneys have successfully handled many appeals cases for clients that have been convicted of OVI/DUI offenses. Convicted defendants have the right to appeal their convictions on the grounds that legal errors on either the conviction itself or the sentence imposed have been made. An appeal can result in a full dismissal of the case or a re-trial or re-sentencing. Examples of legal services provided by our Criminal Appeals attorneys are:
- Represented an individual in appeal of conviction for DUI. The conviction was reversed unanimously by the Ohio First District Court of Appeals and case dismissed.
- Represented an individual charged with DUI in Trial Court and Court of Appeals. The Trial Court dismissed all charges on pretrial motions. The Government appealed the dismissal and the Ohio First District Court of Appeals unanimously affirmed the Trial Court and dismissed case.
- Represented an individual in appeal of conviction for DUI. The conviction was reversed unanimously by the Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals and case dismissed.
