Frequently Asked Questions
Is the initial consultation free?
Most of our lawyers charge a reduced hourly rate for the initial consultation. However, the amount varies by attorney and type of case.
What is a retainer?
A retainer is money put on deposit in the firm’s IOLTA (escrow) account. The money belongs to the client until it is earned by the attorney or used to pay litigation or court costs. If the retainer is not earned in full by the attorney, the client is entitled to a refund when the legal matter is concluded.
What is the difference between a DUI and an OVI?
DUI stands for “driving under the influence” while OVI stands for “operating a vehicle impaired.” There is not much of a difference between the two. DUI refers to a person actually being behind the wheel under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Ohio recently removed the requirement that the vehicle must be “motorized.” In Ohio, you are able to be convicted of an OVI operating almost any vehicle impaired. This could range from riding a bicycle to operating a boat.
Can you still be arrested and convicted of an OVI if you are above the age of 21, and your BAC level is below the legal limit of .08?
In Ohio, you are still able to be convicted of an OVI depending on your level of impairment at any age. If you are below the age of 21, the legal limit is .02.
Do I have to blow into a breathalyzer and take a field sobriety test if I’m arrested for an OVI?
You are able to refuse as you are never required to blow into a breathalyzer or take a field sobriety test in Ohio. It is still possible to be convicted of an OVI based upon the level of impairment such as poor driving performance or other indicators. However, Ohio has made refusing to submit to any testing once arrested for OVI a criminal offense.
