Client Testimonial: 3rd OVI Violation (https://goo.gl/2Fhzp8)

A DUI or OVI charge is serious and can have a major impact on your life.

We have helped hundreds of clients in the Columbus area during what is often the most difficult time in their lives. We love hearing from former clients we helped with their case.

Here is one of our recent client testimonials:

_"I was facing my 3rd OVI with other traffic violations. I was in a very bad situation. Fortunately, Bryan took my case and immediately went to work collecting evidence from the state. Brian's attention to detail was impeccable. He was able to find that the police officer's stop was done improperly. He filed all the proper legal paperwork and this state dropped all of my charges with the exception of the expired tags. Truly amazing! He is very aggressive and I highly recommend him to anyone facing a DUI."

If you find yourself in a similar situation, facing your 2nd or third DUI and/or multiple charges, please schedule a free consultation with us immediately. The sooner we speak with you, the better!

We are available 24/7. Call The Columbus DUI Defenders at (614) 300-3025 or visit our site for more information: https://goo.gl/jv8Bjh

Can Police Go Off of an Anonymous DUI Tip? (https://goo.gl/k9Hahv)

Although the original incident happened in California in 2008, the United States Supreme Court "recently held that law enforcement can go off of an anonymous tip of a potential drunk driver."

What does that mean for you? It means that the law is not on your side if you are charged with an OVI.

As the article states:

_According to the [Supreme Court ruling], if the tip bears "sufficient indicia of reliability," officers need not observe driving which would give rise to the suspicion that a person was driving under the influence, or even that the driver committed a traffic violation. They only need the unverified and unsupported anonymous tip. _

The bottom line? Driving under the influence is never worth the risk and, if you have already been arrested for a DUI, you will need experienced legal guidance to navigate the intricacies of DUI law.

On a Boat? The Truth Behind 6 Boating Under the Influence Myths (https://goo.gl/TGCWNS)

Summer is the season for relaxation, vacation, and beautiful weather. If you're lucky enough to own a boat (or have friends or family who do), your summer weekends probably include a refreshing few hours on the water.

We all know it's easy to get carried away when you're having a good time, and those relaxing hours spent on the sea (or lake or river) are no exception.

Just because you're not on a highway doesn't mean OVI and DUI laws don't apply. Before your next "booze cruise" takes off, read this list of 6 truths behind common myths of drinking while boating.

1. Just as it is with driving a car, operating a boat with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher is against the law.
2. Boats are capable of seriously injuring, even killing, people, especially one operated by someone who is under the influence:
Boat operators with a blood alcohol content of .10 or higher are ten times more likely to die in a boating accident than sober operators.
3. If you are caught operating a boat while under the influence, your boat may be impounded and you could be arrested, just as a driver would be for a DUI. Fish and game wardens and police boat crews are equipped with Breathalyzers and chemical tests to check if you have been drinking or using drugs.
4. Even if your boat doesn't have a motor, you can be arrested for BUI (Boating Under the Influence)
5. BUI includes smoking marijuana (even in states where it is legal) and taking prescription medications that are forbidden from being taken before operating heavy machinery.
6. Swimming after drinking is extremely dangerous and dramatically increases your chances of being swept away in sudden currents, drowning, and hypothermia.

*Is Drinking Alone a Warning Sign? * (https://goo.gl/ctDCUo)

This blog post from The Huffington Post, discusses recent studies that show a connection between teenagers who began drinking alone in order to escape difficult home lives with their eventual alcoholism as full-grown adults.

Is it possible that the act of drinking alone can trigger alcoholism, or is the alcoholism triggered by the emotional stress the subjects endured as children?

How Much Can I Drink Without Getting a DUI? (https://goo.gl/ypSaA3)

With car-sharing options like Uber and Lyft, in addition to the availability of public transportation and cabs in most major cities, the best way to avoid a DUI is to never get behind the wheel if you've had even one drink of alcohol.

According to these two charts published by Business Insider, most men and women who weigh 250 pounds or less could possbily register over the legal blood-alcohol-content level after only one or two drinks.

For this reason, many drivers who thought they weren't breaking the law are now facing DUI or OVI charges after being pulled over by a police officer after sharing a beer or two with co-workers at happy hour.

Unless you wait long enough for each drink to process through and leave your system (which can take up to an hour for each drink), you could blow past the legal limit even if you don't feel intoxicated.

If you have found yourself in this situation, please call us today to schedule a free consultation regarding a DUI or OVI. Please call The Columbus DUI Defenders at (614) 300-3025 or visit our site for more information: https://goo.gl/jv8Bjh

Misdemeanors Can Have Major Consequences for the People Charged (https://goo.gl/6SPmUa)

Despite the fact that misdemeanors aren't considered as serious as felonies, having one on your record can have consequences. However, more and more people are pleading guilty to misdemeanors without meeting with a lawyer first...even if they didn't commit the offense they are being charged for:

Petty offenders are routinely denied counsel even when they are constitutionally entitled to a lawyer. If counsel is appointed, public defenders carry so many cases--some literally have thousands--that they can devote only minutes to each one.

Because so many misdemeanors are charged each year and most states have a huge backlog of cases, files and data are routinely lost or mishandled.

Record Expungement in Ohio (https://goo.gl/mvLrBY)

Approximately 10 million misdemeanors and one million felonies are filed each year in the United States, which means that many people will have at least one infraction added to their record during their lifetime.

The State of Ohio offers first-time-offenders the opportunity to have their record sealed to
prevent their crime from permanently jeopardizing their careers and livelihood.

But not all crimes can be expunged and a specific process must be used to apply. In most cases, the applicant must attend a hearing after submitting their request for expungement. At the hearing, the prosecutor of your case will have the opportunity to object to your expungement.

What can be expunged from your record?

One felony conviction
OR
Two or fewer misdemeanor convictions
OR
One felony AND one misdemeanor conviction

Although most misdemeanors and some felonies may be expunged from your record, there are exceptions. Review the list and the process for requesting a record expungement here: https://goo.gl/mvLrBY

If you have questions about whether or not your case qualifies for expungement, we will meet with you for a free consultation on your case so you have a better understanding of your options before it's too late.

Client Testimonial (https://goo.gl/jv8Bjh)

Getting a DUI or OVI is usually the darkest time in a person's life. We are proud of the work we do for individuals who feel confused and depressed about their legal predicament.

Nothing makes us happier than hearing from a former client who benefited from our services in their time of need. Our team just received this recommendation from a recent client:

"Outstanding attorney! I was facing 5 years in prison and Brian fought my case, which ended with my only having to serve one day in jail plus 3 years of probation. I would not be where I am today without him. He did an excellent job when it mattered the most. He is very trustworthy and gets the job done!"

DUI Information: The DMV Hearing (https://goo.gl/zV4dEG)


As it is in the majority of other U.S. cities, getting a DUI or OVI in Columbus, OH, comes with serious consequences.

Even if you are a first-time offender, you will be required to attend a hearing with the DMV. At this time, your license will be suspended from anywhere between 90 days to 5 years if you failed or refused a breathalyzer test.

Losing your license means you will not be able to drive to work. You will have to become reliant on your friends and family if you aren't lucky enough to live near reliable public transportation.

Even when your license is restored, you may be required to install an ignition interlock in your car that will test your blood alcohol level each time you get behind the wheel.

The good news is that your lawyer may be able to attend the hearing with you, especially if you are facing a felony conviction.

We will meet with you for a free consultation on your case so you have a better understanding of your options before it's too late!
