Don't step out of line during an OVI stop

Let's say you just left a local restaurant in your Ohio neighborhood where you and a few friends were sharing a few laughs, drinks and a good meal together. Not long after you exit the parking lot, you see flashing red and blue lights in your rear view mirror and your blood pressure immediately begins to rise as you realize a police officer is pulling you over. You know that situations like this have a tendency to lead to OVI charges and that's the last thing you need.

Have you been accused of traveling over the absolute speed limit?

Many individuals have faced the scenario of driving along the roadway when they suddenly see blue lights in their rearview mirror. Commonly, police officers pull over drivers for traveling over the speed limit. If this type of situation has happened to you and the officer issued you a ticket, you may wonder whether you have to pay the ticket or if you have other options.

What do you call a DUI in Ohio?

You may have heard the saying somewhere in Ohio or elsewhere that a bird is still a bird by any other name. In essence, it means that it is not the name that makes a particular item what it is; rather, it is the item's substance. Call a bird another name and it still doesn't change the physiological makeup that makes a bird a bird. You can call it a dog if you want, but, scientifically, it's still a bird. The same goes for certain legal terms, such as those describing driving under the influence of alcohol.

Accusations of shoplifting may seem unexpected

Retail therapy acts as a stress reliever for many Ohio residents. As a woman who enjoys such activity, you may look forward to having a day out to do some shopping and treat yourself to some new items. However, your enjoyable venture may turn into a nightmare scenario if someone accuses you of shoplifting.

Ohio's controversial ignition interlock law

Your recent arrest for operating a vehicle under the influence has likely changed your plans for the immediate future. Until the court decides the outcome of your case, you probably think of little else. After all, the consequences for impaired driving convictions include fines, jail time and license suspension that increase in severity with each subsequent offense.

Attack an assault charge head on with a strong criminal defense

Ohio does not take lightly violent crimes of any sort. For instance, if you are facing an assault charge, whether at a misdemeanor or felony level, the consequences can be rather severe. You do not have to let such a charge ruin your future, however. Attack an assault charge head on with a strong criminal defense.

Five ways to sabotage your own DUI defense

You've been pulled over for drinking and driving and are now facing a DUI charge. These cases tend to move quickly, so it's important to begin assembling your defense right away. It is strongly encouraged that you seek the help of an attorney who focuses on DUI defense.
