Ohio Administrative License Suspension
Defending clients who have been charged with drunk driving, or driving under the influence of illegal or prescription drugs, is challenging. DUI and DWI defense attorneys must always be prepared for new developments in legal and scientific procedures used to prove guilt.
The criminal defense lawyers at Yavitch & Palmer have years of experience in dealing with DUI and DWI cases. Their knowledge of the scientific and legal aspects of Breathalyzer, urine and blood tests used to determine BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) and drug use enables them to effectively question the accuracy, reliability and validity of these tests during court proceedings.
Being under the influence includes more than simply drunk driving. If you are found to be under the influence of illegal or prescription drugs while driving or operating heavy machinery, you are also subject to these charges and their penalties.
Administrative License Suspension (ALS) means that if you are stopped for drunk driving and you refuse to take a sobriety test, or if your test results exceed the legal limit, the law enforcement officer can take your driver’s license on the spot. Your suspension begins immediately.
