A lesson I always have to keep teaching myself is that you can win DUI cases in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is easy to get lulled into a trance-like state where you get routine results for routine clients.
The problem is that when you have a case that should work out by way of a plea, but the state for whatever reason is not willing to deal and the client is not willing to plea guilty.
These cases get tried and sometimes you expect to lose. Well in the last few months I have tried and won two cases I didn’t think I would win.
This is a great feeling for a lawyer to have a plan and see it work. One case was with a jury and the other was tried to a judge.
What is the message to people charged with OVI and other lawyers out there? Don’t panic at the facts you might be able to win!
Have a plan to try the case and sometimes you just have to do it. Both cases would have resulted in mandatory jail or prison over 20 days for my client and I walked both of them out of the courthouse not guilty of anything!
