In Ohio, being charged with Operating Vehicle Impaired (OVI) carries heavy penalties, which have the potential to impact every area of your life. At the VanNoy Firm, our experienced Troy OVI attorneys understand how these charges can threaten both your personal life and your financial security. With over two decades worth of experience handling these types of cases, we provide the professional legal representation you need to strategize your best course of defense.
OVI laws listed under Section 4511.19 of the Ohio Revised Code authorize law enforcement to cast a wide net in pulling over drivers suspected of OVI. In addition to using OVI checkpoints, officers may use driving behaviors, such as weaving in and out of lanes or problems in maintaining speed, as well as circumstances such as being out in the late night/early morning hours to warrant making a traffic stop.
Under Ohio’s implied consent law, drivers who are pulled over and refuse to submit to blood or urine testing could face a mandatory one year driver’s license suspension. If you do submit and your blood alcohol content (BAC) level is .08 or greater, you could face the following penalties:
For a fourth or subsequent OVI, you could face felony OVI charges, which may include fines in excess of $10,000, jail sentences of three years or more, and revocation of your driving privileges.
If you are a driver under the age of 18 and are found to have a BAC of .02 percent or greater, you could end up being charged with Operating a Vehicle After Underage Consumption (OVUAC). According to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), these charges carry severe penalties, which include fines, revocation of your driver’s license, and mandatory drug/alcohol classes. In order to get your license reinstated, you would need to do the following:

I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case. From the first time I met with my team to our last interaction, I always felt like I wasn't a number or a case, I was a person. The whole team was professional, responsive to my calls and concerns, and fought for the outcome I deserved. They even sent me an Ele cupcake for my birthday. I recommend this firm to everyone I know and will return if I ever need services in the future!
I am giving this firm a five-star rating for two reasons. First is the professional way in which I was treated. Every person I spoke with at this firm was professional and extremely courteous. I felt as though I was being treated as a natural person and NOT just a client. In many professional settings, clients are treated as such clients. Therefore they are held at arm's length. This gives off the impression a client is just a number, and there is a coldness and sterility to the service. I was NOT treated in this manner at the Vannoy Firm.…
Anthony VanNoy is an absolutely top-notch attorney. From start to finish, my case was handled with empathy, efficiency, and utter professionalism. The outcome was better than I'd dared to hope for and I cannot recommend him or his firm highly enough.
I first want to thank the staff and the company itself I work with Brittany and Patricia and it was so smooth on my end they took care of everything. They had no problem working with me even when I live the incident happened in a different state. Very very professional in my eyes and my family’s.
Keara Dever took the initiative to advocate for me in my very difficult situation. When no one else would listen to me, she did. She was very supportive and understanding and I am very appreciative for her services. She went above and beyond what I would have ever expected. Thank you so much Mrs. Dever. And by the way, she is AWESOME!!! Carl. M
Great experience and I would recommend to anyone in need of counsel for any civil/ Legal matter. They have people that specialized in certain areas and they can give you information or tell you which way you need to go with the case. I had a great experience and my friend called last week and the same professional help was given! Call them you won't be sorry!
