My name is Robert Healey and I am a lawyer that limits his practice to OVI defense in southwest Ohio. This blog is written by me to help potential clients in the Cincinnati area that have been charged with an OVI.
If you are charged with OVI you might also be suspended. The best you can hope for initially is that you will not be suspended right away.
However, even in the best case, you can be suspended at the initial appearance if the Judge finds your continued driving is a threat to public safety.
You can also be suspended upon conviction. Most likely you will be suspended and have to deal with reinstating you license even if you beat the OVI charge.
This is because a dismissal or finding of not guilty on an OVI charge does not automatically terminate an administrative license suspension.
The best way to reinstate you license to to first show proof of insurance to the BMV. Then you will need to pay the fee of $475.
You will have to pay this for OVI, Physical Control, a municipal OVI ordinance, or public safety suspension. If you charge is reduced upon a plea to reckless operation the fee to get your license back is only about $40!
The reduction in fee is not the best reason to resolve a DUI or OVI case. Being found not guilty is. I encourage you to hire a lawyer that limits his practice to OVI defense as soon as possible.
And remember, if you or a family member has been arrested for OVI in the Cincinnati Area – including: Hamilton, Butler, Warren, Clermont, Montgomery, and Greene Counties – call me, ROBERT HEALEY, or one of my qualified associates at 513.333.0014. We are available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Because now is the perfect time to put a team that includes a FORMER POLICE OFFICER and a FORMER PROSECUTOR to work….for you!
