Situated on the northwest side of the Columbus metropolitan area, Upper Arlington is an affluent city that provides residents with easy access to downtown Columbus and all major highways in the area. With U.S. Route 33 and I-270 nearby, DUIs in Upper Arlington do arise.

In Ohio, a DUI and OVI have the same meaning. When a driver is arrested for a DUI, it is often because they were driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and had a blood alcohol concentration that was over the legal limit of .08 percent. However, sometimes a mistake is made and charges aren’t valid. That’s where an Upper Arlington DUI lawyer can help.

What to Expect from an Upper Arlington DUI Lawyer

When you make the decision to hire an Upper Arlington DUI lawyer, you can expect them to negotiate with judges and prosecutors in order to lower your fines, reduce the amount of time you’ll spend in jail, and remove the charges from your criminal record sooner. In some cases, an Upper Arlington DUI lawyer may even be able to get your case entirely dismissed. At Luftman, Heck & Associates, we have the knowledge of how the other side thinks to help obtain the best possible outcome for your case.

Your First Upper Arlington DUI/OVI Offense

The effects of a DUI conviction, even if it’s your first one, can be serious and life-changing. You’ll likely face harsh consequences such as fines of up to $1,000, up to six months in jail, a driver’s license suspension, and the requirement to attend a Driver Intervention Program.

These consequences may hurt your career and professional license, make it impossible for you to own or live in a rental property, prevent you from being inducted in the military, and impact your child custody rights if you are divorced or separated.

Once you’ve been charged with an OVI, you will need to appear in Upper Arlington Mayor’s court for the pre-trial and arraignment. By hiring an Upper Arlington DUI lawyer, you will have somebody there to fight for your rights and increase your chances of obtaining positive results during the Ohio DUI court process.

How an Upper Arlington DUI Lawyer Can Help

A skilled Upper Arlington DUI lawyer will build the right criminal defense strategy for your specific situation. Your charges and circumstances will be carefully reviewed to find flaws in your case that can help minimize your consequences or prevent conviction. When designing an effective criminal defense strategy, an Upper Arlington DUI lawyer may:

  • Challenge the results from a field sobriety and/or breathalyzer test – There are a wide variety of factors such as fatigue, medical history, and nervousness that can lead to unfair test results. In addition, the results from a breathalyzer test may be inaccurate because it was administered incorrectly or outdated.
  • Question the stop – Police do not have the right to stop drivers without “reasonable suspicion.” Therefore, if you were obeying traffic laws and driving at an acceptable speed limit, police may not have had reasonable suspicion to pull you over.
