To have any degree of success in a DUI case, you must hire a DUI defense lawyer who handles DUI charges on a regular basis and understands the complexities of Ohio DUI Law.
“I am in court nearly every day on DUI cases. All too often, I see DUI defendants represented by lawyers who are clueless about DUI law. Many times these attorneys are relatives, friends of the family, or practice in other areas of the law.” – Dan Weisenburger.
