If you are facing a DUI / OVI charge in Cleveland or in Northern Ohio make sure you employee the services of a skilled drunk driving defense attorney.
Law enforcement and prosecutors take OVI/DUI charges seriously in Cleveland and throughout Ohio. If the police have probable cause to believe you are driving while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol or drinking and driving, they can ask you to submit to a breathalyzer test or a test of your blood and urine. In Ohio, driving is a privilege, not a right. The field sobriety tests (FST) are not scientific by any means, but are recognized and accepted in a court of law to support probable cause for an OVI/DUI or drunk driving arrest if the police substantially complied with the standards. As a licensed driver, you agree to take a breath test as a condition of your right to drive in the State of Ohio. This is called Implied Consent. If you refuse to take a test, you will lose your right to drive for 1 year from the BMV. We can help you to get driving even if you refused a breath test because we are skilled DUI defense lawyers fighting for your rights
