Being charged with driving under the influence (DUI) can be one of the most overwhelming experiences of your life. If convicted, you may face the harsh effects of steep fines, jail times, a driver’s license suspension, and increased car insurance rates. Fortunately, a Grove City DUI lawyer from Luftman, Heck & Associates can help improve your situation and ensure that you are treated fairly. We have over 10 years of experience building strong cases for clients in Grove City and surrounding areas who have been charged with a DUI.
Founded in 1852, Grove City is approximately 16.73 square miles and located in the southwestern part of Franklin County. It is admired for its small-town feel and short 10-minute drive to downtown Columbus. Although Grove City is booming with friendly faces and businesses, it is also a city where DUIs do arise.
DUIs in Ohio are known as operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OVI). Anyone charged with an OVI because they were caught with a blood alcohol content (BAC) that exceeds .08 percent may have trouble landing a job and supporting themselves financially, earning trust from their loved ones, and maintaining a good reputation in their community.
If you’re arrested for or charged with a DUI / OVI, you should contact our experienced Grove City DUI attorneys at Luftman, Heck & Associates at .
When you are charged with a DUI, your future and freedom are at stake. Therefore, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to consult an experienced Grove City DUI lawyer immediately. Our attorneys, Ben Luftman, Dan Sabol, Chase Mallory and Joe Kunkel have over a decade of experience defending DUI clients. Our understanding of how the other side thinks paired with our creative defense tactics can make it possible to get your penalties minimized or in some cases, get your case completely dismissed.
Even though a first-time OVI offense is a misdemeanor, it comes with serious consequences. You may pay a $1,000 fine, spend three days to six months in jail, be required to take a special DUI class, and lose your driving privileges.
You will likely begin the Ohio DUI court process at Grove City Mayor’s Court with a pre-trial and arraignment. During this time, a highly skilled Grove City DUI lawyer can advocate your rights and increase your chances of obtaining a positive case result.
When you make the choice to hire a Grove City DUI lawyer, you can expect them to prepare an OVI defense strategy targeted towards reducing your charges or dismissing your case altogether. A Grove City DUI lawyer may challenge the way that the breathalyzer test was conducted. They may find that the test was improperly calibrated and resulted in an error.
They may also challenge field sobriety tests and point out a flaw in the way a police officer administered it. A field sobriety test may have been administered incorrectly or graded in a way that does not adhere to the guidelines by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Miranda rights are intended to remind police officers that individuals they arrest have the right to remain silent, the right to have an attorney present, and other constitutional rights. A Grove City DUI lawyer can challenge the arrest process if a police officer failed to recite these rights or denied you any of your constitutional rights.
Regardless of the defense strategies that an attorney uses, their main goal is to find mistakes that can help prevent a DUI conviction. The right defense strategy can make all the difference in your current life and future.
