Operating a vehicle while impaired is a serious offense, and if you are caught, charged, and convicted of a DUI (driving under the influence) or OVI (operating a vehicle under the influence) charge in Xenia, you could be looking at harsh consequences. At the law offices of The VanNoy Firm, our Xenia DUI lawyers are here to help you understand your options and defend yourself against charges whether this is your first DUI offense, or a subsequent offense.

Being charged with a DUI can be very scary, and you may have questions about what your rights are, what your options are, and how you can protect yourself against the worst of consequences. If this is a first DUI offense and you have never been involved in the criminal system before, you may be very worried about how the offense could affect your life and your reputation; it is true that a DUI offense can have an effect on your ability to maintain a professional license, secure employment, or even secure housing.

Your attorney will review all of the details of your case, including the evidence against you. In some cases, your attorney may be able to have evidence against you withheld – breathalyzers are not always correct, and field sobriety tests are not always properly administered.
