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 laws concerning legal limits are complicated in Ohio. For starters, under Ohio law, there are many different ways to determine when a suspected intoxicated driver is over the legal limit. For instance:
Not only are there legal limits under Ohio law, but there are also two tiers of legal limits — low tier and high tier — for alcohol testing. High tier test results mean harsher punishments. For instance, high tier alcohol test results include:
The law concerning DUI testing in Ohio can seem pretty confusing because there are a number of different test limits for alcohol and drug concentrations in the body. Furthermore, Ohio has a high tier of legal limits when it comes to alcohol testing, and if a driver produces a high tier test result, they will face steeper punishment under the law.
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:

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.
