Experienced Cleveland DUI/OVI Attorney

If you have been charged with OVI, or operating a vehicle under the influence (commonly referred to as DUI), you probably have a lot of questions. How much will this cost? How much jail time will I serve? Will my license be suspended? In Ohio there are three main types of DUI:

  • Low tier, which consists of a .08 to .17 BAC
  • High tier, consisting of a BAC of .17 or above, and
  • Refusal to take the breathalyzer

Regardless of the type of DUI you have been charged with, you are facing mandatory jail time, fines up to $2700, interlock installation, and license suspension. These possibilities may seem daunting, but now’s not the time to stick your head in the sand.

An administrative license suspension has to be appealed within ten days. The sooner you have an experienced Cleveland DUI/OVI attorney representing you, the sooner you can secure the driving privileges that will get you where you need to go. Attorney Adam VanHo has helped hundreds of clients in the Cleveland area obtain the best possible outcome for their situation.

Retaining Your Driving Privileges

Work. School. Childcare. Family obligations. Keeping your driving privileges is about more than going to the mall. Like most people, you probably have responsibilities to yourself and others that are non-negotiable. The ramifications of a DUI are especially significant for truck drivers, and other professionals who operate vehicles on a commercial license.

A former county prosecutor for both Montgomery and Summit counties, an experienced assistant attorney general, and a special prosecutor throughout Ohio, Attorney VanHo has even trained officers on DUI.
