Will I Loss My License or Driving Privileges?

Depending on the circumstances of your charge, you could be up against serious penalties. Certain factors, such as being underage or being a repeat offender can aggravate your charges. That is why it is crucial to know what penalties may be involved in your case. Most importantly, losing driving privileges can be detrimental.

These OVI / DUI offenses bring about the following license suspension:

  • First Offense: 6 months to 3 years of license suspension.
  • Second Offense: Between 1 and 5 years of license suspension
  • Third Offense: Between 2 to 10 years of license suspension
  • Fourth Offense: 3 years to permanent license suspension

Your Defense Against OVI Charges in Ohio

By working with VanHo Law, you can wield the personalized defense needed to secure a favorable result. Armed with the insights of a former prosecutor, we know how to challenge the evidence against you. Many field sobriety tests are unscientific and easily argued against; not even blood or urine tests are infallible.

For example, if there was a procedural error or if equipment was wrongly calibrated, our Akron OVI defense lawyers can work to get this evidence thrown out of your case. If your rights were violated, such as if you were pulled over and arrested by an officer who didn’t have the probable cause to do so, our Summit County OVI attorney is ready to fiercely assert your rights and beat your charge.
