Many Ohioans find themselves charged with driving under the influence for being behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
A driving under the influence (DUI) offense, also often referred to as operating a vehicle while impaired or as an “OVI” in Ohio, is a serious criminal offense that can carry mandatory jail time, hefty fines, and a suspension of your driver’s license that can last for years.
A DUI/OVI conviction will also result in a criminal record, the installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle, an increase in your auto insurance premiums, and can cause you difficulties later in life when it comes to certain employment opportunities in the future. A DUI conviction has a significant and long-lasting impact on your life. That is why it is so critically important to fight your DUI charges with a strong defense. Let a skilled and experienced DUI attorney help you fight your charges.

The legal limits for alcohol tests drop significantly for drivers who are under the age of 21 years old. For these drivers, the legal limits include:
