Skilled Ohio advocates challenge drunk driving charges
Attorney Dennison at SRD Law Office may be able to have charges thrown out by demonstrating that an equipment or procedural error resulted in an unfair charge. We will examine whether or not law enforcement followed proper protocol in regard to:
- The stop — Police must be able to demonstrate that they pulled you over based on "reasonable suspicion" that you were acting in violation of the law.
- The sobriety test — There are specific rules that police must follow when administering field sobriety tests, including when measuring blood alcohol concentration (BAC).
- The equipment — Breathalyzer machines have provided inaccurate results in the past, and their reliability (as to the test) can be questioned.
- The evidence — Blood samples and other types of evidence must be stored in certain conditions in order to maintain their integrity.
Our OVI attorney will strive to get you the respect you deserve and the results you desire.
Trusted counselor provide advice on handling OVI/DUI stops
If you are ever pulled over by the police on suspicion of drunk driving, there are several ways you can help yourself:
- Remain calm and be polite — If you are nervous, police officers may think that you are hiding something or are intoxicated.
- Don't allow a search without a warrant — Any evidence police find in your car can be used to support a OVI conviction.
- Get a blood test after release — It’s a good idea to measure your BAC with a blood test immediately after arrest. At trial, your attorney may use that evidence to raise possible defenses.
