SINCE I TOOK THE BREATH TEST, IS IT POSSIBLE TO FIGHT MY OVI / DUI?
Absolutely! However, not every attorney that is listed in the phone book under the DUI / OVI listing is competent to fight these cases. As a matter of fact, many of the attorneys that list DUI / OVI cases in their Yellow Pages advertisement have never done a DUI / OVI / Drunk Driving trial. Do you want someone representing you who has never had a trial? Do you want someone representing you who only knows how to say “GUILTY” or “No Contest?”
Breath test cases are not easy to fight and they generally require the attorney to have a knowledge of the instrument that you blew into, familiarity with the Ohio Department of Health regulations that regulate the maintenance and use of the breath testing instrument, human anatomy and physiology and general trial skills. Additionally, fighting an OVI / DUI with a blood, breath or urine result over 0.08 can be very time consuming and expensive.
When choosing your OVI / DUI lawyer, make sure you ask them if they have ever done a DUI / OVI trial with a blood, breath or urine test admitted into evidence.
