Positive Tests Do Not Mean Guilt
A positive test does not automatically translate into a guilty verdict. OVI/DUI defense lawyer Jay Clark has extensive experience working in the courts of Ohio and will explore every opportunity to get the charges dismissed or reduced.
The smart first step for the driver who has been charged with OVI/DUI (or underage OVI) is to contact us immediately so we can start building a strong case. Failure to request a driver's license suspension hearing means that your license is automatically revoked. We can help drivers with this process, but you must request a hearing within 30 days of the arrest.
