You do not have to go to downtown Cleveland to find the skilled representation that you need. Our skilled Geauga County OVI lawyers know how to investigate these cases and find potential weaknesses in the case against you.

Some of the things we look for include:

  • Was the traffic stop legal?
  • Were field sobriety tests ad ministered the right way?
  • Was the Breathalyzer accurate?
  • Was the new breath test device used , and if so, was the officer properly trained to use it?
  • Do you have medical conditions, such as acid reflux, that may cause the breath test reading to abnormally high?

If this is your first DUI , it is extremely important to fight the charges. A conviction stays on your record for 20 years and can greatly affect your life . If you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), your ability to earn a living could be jeopardized. We are ready to sit down with you, listen to what happened, and help you choose the best course of action to protect you.
