Delaware DUI Lawyer

If you’re charged with an OVI in Delaware, now is the time to hire a Delaware DUI defense lawyer from Luftman, Heck & Associates. Our savvy Delaware DUI lawyers might be able to diminish the penalties you face, or even possibly get the charge dismissed altogether.

Just north of Ohio’s capital sits Delaware, right at the intersection of three U.S. highways: US 42, US 36 and US 23. As the highways come together, police activity becomes more abundant, and officers will watch you vigilantly for any signs of impaired driving. It isn’t that uncommon to be stopped; the Ohio State Highway Patrol made over 11,00 traffic stops in Delaware County during 2014, according to statistics from its website. If you’re showing signs of alcohol or drugs in your system, be ready for a field sobriety test and the possibility of a DUI / OVI.

A DUI in Ohio is known as an OVI. The consequences can be drastic, and they get worse with each repeated offense. A DUI/ OVI conviction might prevent you from renting that house or apartment. Your insurance company might raise your rates. You could even lose custody of your child, especially if he or she was in the car with you.

Your First Delaware DUI /OVI Offense
