Why Do I Need An Attorney If The Cop Or A Friend Told Me To Go To Court Myself

We regularly hear from prospective clients that say a cop or a friend told them to go to court myself and ask the prosecutor for a reduction to reckless operation – so why do they need an Attorney for a DUI in Cincinnati?

Sometimes a plea to a reduced offense is not a bargain at all if the police did not have reasonable suspicion or probable cause to pull you over, ask you to take the Field Sobriety Tests, or place you under arrest for DUI.

Reckless Operation carries most of the same penalties and consequences as a DUI conviction.  In Ohio it is 2 points less on your license and has lower exposure to maximum jail time and fines.

I always recommend that the client makes an informed decision on all the facts after my office makes a thorough analysis of the state’s case.  Who knows, maybe we can beat the charge altogether.

If you or a family member have been arrested on DUI in the Greater Cincinnati area and need assistance with an upcoming court appearance in Butler, Clermont, Hamilton or Warren Counties, give us a call at our 24 Hour Emergency Number at 513.333.0014 for affordable and professional help.
