Columbus OVI/DUI/DWI Attorneys
Ohio Lawyer — When You Face Alcohol-Related Charges
In Ohio, the law on alcohol-related offenses is constantly changing, but one thing remains the same: The state takes these crimes seriously and mandates harsh penalties for people who are convicted.
We take defending you and your rights seriously as well. At the Columbus, Ohio, Law Office of Eric J. Allen, Ltd., we handle the criminal defense of a broad range of alcohol-related crimes:
- Underage consumption of alcohol
- Selling/furnishing alcohol to a minor
- Felony OVI
- Vehicular assault/vehicular manslaughter
- Other crimes where alcohol is involved
We represent people who have been arrested for drunk driving (OVI/DUI/DWI) in the state of Ohio. We build a strong defense by paying attention to every aspect of your case. Was the traffic stop legal? Were you given the proper field sobriety tests? Was the Intoxilyzer result inaccurate? We find out. If there were any violations of your rights, we take steps to make sure that the prosecution can't use the evidence against you.
The state of Ohio automatically suspends the driver's licenses of those who refuse to take a sobriety test. Administrative license suspension can also happen for driving with a prohibited blood alcohol content (BAC). At The Law Office of Eric J. Allen, Ltd., we represent clients at administrative license suspension (ALS) hearings to help them protect their licenses and their ability to drive.
Boating Under the Influence (BUI)
Recently, the state of Ohio has increased its prosecution of boating under the influence (BUI) and takes the offense very seriously. Especially on busy holiday weekends such as the Fourth of July, police do surveillance on unsuspecting boaters, often charging them with drunken boating. If you've been charged with BUI, our law firm can provide a strong defense.
