How We Can Fight Your DUI Charges

There are many ways in which an OVI / DUI case can be successfully fought. Our Cincinnati criminal defense lawyers love America's justice system, but also realize that there are still flaws and that mistakes can be made. Grounds for fighting your DUI can include:

  • Unlawful DUI stop
  • Police misconduct
  • Faulty breath / blood test

Police officers must have reason to believe that you are intoxicated before they can lawfully pull you over and investigate, such as drifting across lane lines, driving at night without headlights, erratic driving speeds, or a call from a tipster.

Police misconduct can occur during field sobriety tests, as well as during a DUI checkpoint if it is improperly conducted. Breath tests can even be fought, especially if the officer failed to calibrate the machine or to properly instruct you on how to blow into the machine. Blood and urine tests can also be fought if your sample was mishandled in the lab.
