If You're Facing Drunk Driving Charges, Our Firm Is Ready To Fight For You

Being charged with drunk or drugged driving — known as OVI in Ohio — is a threat to your freedom. A drunk driving charge doesn't just come with a ticket and a fine to pay. Instead, you could be facing driver's license suspension, limited employment opportunities, and serious disciplinary action from your college or university. However, even if you are facing charges, you still have rights — and we can help protect them.

At The Sharp Law Firm, LLC, in Columbus, our criminal defense attorney has years of experience helping people who are facing OVI charges navigate the criminal justice system.

We treat our clients like people, not case numbers. Your well-being is important to us, which is why we will be your steadfast advocates throughout the legal process.

Building A Drunk Driving Defense

Many people are under the impression that there is little you can do about an impaired driving charge. If the arresting officer said you failed a field sobriety test, or you blew higher than a .08 on a breath test, how can you challenge the charges?

The fact of the matter is that the evidence supporting a drunk driving charge is often not as strong as you might think. We will conduct a thorough investigation of your case to determine whether any of these issues or others occurred:

  • Improperly calibrated breath test machine, which may result in an incorrect reading
  • Unfair field sobriety test such as being asked to take the test on a hill or on uneven ground
  • Lack of probable cause to pull you over in the first place

Under 21? We Can Help.

Not everyone charged with drunk driving is of legal drinking age. However, an underage DUI/OVI charge can have severe repercussions on a teenager or student's life. If you or your child is facing these serious charges, we can help.
