Getting pulled over in Ohio and getting arrested for an OVI (operating a vehicle while intoxicated) is a serious offense. Even if it is the first time that you have ever been pulled over, you should consult a lawyer for your case.
Here are some reasons why you need a lawyer for an OVI in Ohio.
Usually prosecutors will offer a plea offer, especially for first time offenders.
If you want a better deal than what they are offering, you should consult with a lawyer.
However, if you were involved in an accident or injured someone else, the law is not as forgiving.
You will need a lawyer to help you through a trial if you have caused injuries to someone else or done damage to property. They will discuss possible defenses in order to dismiss your case or lessen your crime.
If it is not your first offense, your lawyer will work with you to get the best deal possible.
The law is not generally as kind to those who have already been convicted of an OVI. You will need an experienced lawyer to weaken their case against you.
By hiring an experienced lawyer, you will spend less time in court.
A good lawyer will have your case all prepared and he or she will be ready to fight for you. There may even be times when you won’t have to show up in court because your lawyer will be able to handle it.
