    Licking County Drunk Driving Attorney

    When you have been arrested and charged with DUI/OVI in Ohio, you need to engage an experienced and knowledgeable DUI defense attorney like our law firm immediately. OVI stands for operating a vehicle while impaired and is just another name for drunk driving similar to driving under the influence or driving while impaired. If you are charged with OVI, you are facing the loss of your driver’s license for up to one year, a $1000 fine and three days in jail. In addition to those charges, you will receive a criminal record that will have a negative impact when you apply for a job, attempt to receive credit or travel abroad. At The Law Offices of John P.M. Rutan, Criminal Defense Attorney, we will provide you with a zealous and thorough defense against the DUI charges you face. Our goals are to have the charges against you dismissed and your good name promptly restored.

    We will leave no stone unturned in your DUI/OVI defense. There are many questions that we will ask the police in order to find information that can help us to have the charges dismissed or to win your case. These questions include but are not limited to:

    1. Did the police collect your blood, breath or urine samples collected withing the three-hour time limitation?
    2. Did the police use approved testing devices?
    3. Were the testing machines properly maintained and calibrated?
    4. Was the 20-minute observation period enforced?
    5. Was the BreathAlyzer machine calibrated within the last 7 days?
    6. Do you have a medical condition that could have affected your ability to perform field sobriety tests?

    There are many more questions that we will ask of the police in order to find a reason to doubt the charges that have been filed against you.
