Warren Traffic Ticket Attorney
You do not have to be a criminal to be in need of a criminal defense. If you have been arrested for drunk driving or given a traffic ticket, you want a lawyer who can help you take the steps necessary to protect your rights and your license.
At the law offices of James E. Lanzo L.L.C., our Youngstown OVI/DUI attorney has been protecting the rights of the accused in Ohio courts since 1998. We understand that these charges can impact anyone, and we have experience guiding people just like you through the criminal justice system. We will keep your future in focus.
While it is commonly referred to as DUI and DWI, the official term for drunk driving in Ohio is OVI, or operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Whether you had a few too many drinks and made a small mistake or you are facing felony OVI charges for multiple offenses, our firm is prepared to help you through the entire process.
In Ohio, there is an immediate administrative license suspension for drivers who test over the limit or refuse to take a breath test. In order to defeat your automatic license suspension, you have to appeal it right away. Unless you take action, the first consequence you will see is your license suspension. Luckily, there are multiple things we can do to make sure you can still drive.
Some traffic charges carry serious consequences and one of the most problematic charges facing Ohio drivers is driving under suspension. There is a major bureaucratic problem with license suspension in Ohio and many people do not even know their licenses have been suspended. Some people even have their licenses suspended for incidents that occurred out of state many years ago. Whatever the case may be, we can help.
Our firm also handles typical traffic charges such as speeding and reckless driving. If you are a truck driver or drive for a living, a traffic violation can have a big impact on your life. So make sure you have the best possible defense from the start.
From our offices in Youngstown, we protect drivers facing OVI and other traffic violations in Ohio. Open during weekly business hours, we also offer evening and weekend appointments. Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation.
