Drunk driving is one of the most common types of criminal charges filed in Montgomery County. In Ohio, intoxicated driving is typically referred to as a DUI (driving under the influence) or as an OVI (operating a vehicle under the influence). If you were arrested for a DUI/OVI, it is imperative that you take immediate action. You should be represented by a defense lawyer.

No matter the specific circumstances of your arrest, our legal team is prepared to advocate for your rights. To get immediate help with your case, please contact our Montgomery County defense lawyer today for a confidential consultation.
In Montgomery County, DUI/OVI charges are generally brought under Section 4511.19 of the Ohio Code. This statute makes it a criminal violation to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. For alcohol, a motorist is under the influence if their blood alcohol concentration (BAC level) is at or 0.08 percent. Though, for certain drivers the maximum BAC level is lower. For drivers under the age of 21, it is a criminal violation to drive with a BAC at or above 0.02 percent. For commercial drivers, it is a criminal violation to operate a vehicle with a BAC at or above 0.04 percent.
If you were arrested on the suspicion of intoxicated driving, you need to consult with an experienced Montgomery County defense lawyer who can prepare a strong, fully individualized defense strategy on your behalf. The worst thing you can do is to simply take no action. You will likely face harsh penalties if you go through the system alone.
The most effective defense strategy for your particular case will depend on a number of different factors. In some cases, our defense lawyer will focus on limiting the penalties that you will face; to be sure, not only will we work to keep you out of jail, we will work to help you keep your license. In other cases, the charges may be wholly illegitimate. Our Dayton DUI lawyers are always prepared to aggressively defend you against overzealous law enforcement officers and prosecutors.
