For drivers young and old alike, and from all backgrounds and demographics, being charged with a DUI/OVI (operating a vehicle while intoxicated) offense is a terrifying thought. Unfortunately, having one too many and getting behind the wheel happens to even the most responsible of people.
If you are arrested and charged with an OVI offense in Dayton, Ohio or surrounding areas, you should contact an OVI attorney near you immediately. An attorney can promptly get to work investigating your case, having evidence against you dismissed, and building your defense. To schedule your consultation with the aggressive Ohio OVI defense attorneys at The VanNoy Firm, use our online form or call our offices today.
Being charged with a DUI/OVI offense is very serious, and even if you can afford the fines and the potential risk of having your license revoked, the humiliation of the offense and the mandatory jail time (between three and six days for a first offense, depending upon a person’s blood alcohol concentration level) can be a lot to live with. Further, if you are convicted of a DUI, it will go on your criminal record. This means that every time a potential employer or landlord asks you if you have ever been convicted of a crime, you are legally obligated to answer yes. As such, a DUI is not only embarrassing, but can also be severely limiting for future opportunities.
An attorney’s job is to defend you against OVI charges and secure the best outcome for your case as possible. As such, your attorney will begin by exploring possible defenses to the OVI charges, such as lack of probable cause for the officer pulling you over in the first place, an improperly administered field sobriety test, defective breathalyzer test, and more.
If having charges against you dropped or securing a verdict of innocent seems unlikely, your attorney will likely work with the prosecution to strike a plea arrangement. In this type of arrangement, you agree to plead guilty to a criminal charge (not necessarily an OVI charge) in exchange for a concession from the prosecution, such as a reduced charge.
While the criminal system is designed to protect you, oftentimes, it doesn’t work that way. Sadly, the longer that you wait to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney, the more your rights may be infringed upon, and the more the odds may become stacked against you. By calling an OVI attorney, you are protecting your best interests and hiring a knowledgeable advocate who cares about the outcome of your case.

As a Dayton Attorney, I have have both worked with Anthony and battled against him in Court for over 25 years. He is a great litigator and a fierce advocate for his client! Besides that, his word is his bond!
Make the Call! Call the VanNoy Firm first!! I spent days, calling around to different firms seeking legal assistance. Our lives can change in an instant and if you are faced with a legal challenge, call the VanNoy Firm! I was blessed to have the support, guidance and overall experience that I did with the VanNoy Firm. Kristie Gotwald represented me in a Child Custody Case. Kristie’s commitment to my case was exceptional. Kristie’s communication, not only with me but also with the court and the opposing layer, kept me confident that Kristie was continuing to fight for justice everyday.…
