Fighting License Suspensions

Have you been arrested for driving under the influence or for a related traffic offense? If so, it is very likely that your privilege to drive has been suspended. An experienced OVI defense attorney at the Meadows Law Firm can help you appeal your driver’s license suspension and work toward getting your driving privileges back. You must bring your appeal to the court’s attention in a very timely fashion, so call us immediately so you don’t miss the filing deadline!

Why Was Your License Suspended?

Reasons for a driver’s license suspension include:

  • Failing to appear in court
  • Driving without car insurance
  • Driving with a BAC over the legal limit
  • Refusing blood alcohol test

How A Butler County DUI Attorney Can Help

The lawyers at the Meadows Law Firm have represented clients in 13 counties on driver’s license issues. It is important that you do not drive with a suspended license; otherwise you will risk additional charges. If your license has been suspended as a result of DUI or OVI, you have 30 days following the initial court appearance to appeal the suspension to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). We can help you prepare for your hearing and defend you accordingly. We will likely examine a variety of options to determine a suitable defense strategy. This may include examining the details of your arrest and law enforcement’s behavior to ensure everything was handled according to procedure.

How long will my license be suspended?

The period of suspension you may face depends on all of the related factors involved in your arrest. If you had a previous conviction on your record, it will likely affect the length of time you are unable to drive. We would be very happy to explain this and more to you during your initial free consultation with a lawyer from our firm.

The length that your driver’s license will be suspended is primarily based on a few factors, including:

  • The number of prior DUI convictions (if any)
  • Your blood alcohol content (BAC)
  • Whether you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol
