DUI Defense Lawyer Delaware, Ohio

Defending clients against DUI charges for more than 10 years

Ohio’s DUI laws are among the toughest in the nation. If convicted of driving under the influence, you could end up paying dearly for your mistake.

At the Owens Law Office, we offer defense strategies built upon an intimate knowledge of the law and the ability to use technology to our advantage. Delaware, Ohio DUI defense lawyer Robert M. Owens uses cutting-edge technology such as multimedia presentations to build your case.

What can happen with a DUI conviction

You can be issued a ticket for driving under the influence (DUI) by an officer who believes you are impaired by alcohol or drugs. The legal limit for your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is .08, though the laws differ for commercial and underage drivers. Because of the severity of Ohio’s laws, a conviction may lead to:

  • License suspension
  • Fines
  • Car insurance hikes
  • Mandatory ignition interlocks
  • Court costs
  • Jail time
  • Yellow DUI license plates
  • Loss of vehicle

The punishments associated with a DUI conviction may affect your personal freedoms and your ability to provide for your family. At Owens Law Office, your Delaware, Ohio DUI defense attorney works hard to keep your penalties to a minimum if they cannot be eliminated.

We challenge the DUI arrest in every way

Since the time of our Founding Fathers, criminal defendants have been assumed innocent until proven guilty. At Owens Law Office, we mean to put the prosecutors fully to the task of proving every element beyond a reasonable doubt. We offer creative strategies designed to help you avoid the harshest penalties, even if you’re not a first-time offender. We may build your case by:

  • Challenging the stop. The entire case may be dismissed if the original reason for the stop wasn’t legitimate. We review police records and conduct interviews when necessary to discover any unrevealed truths about why you were stopped.
  • Challenging the Breathalyzer®. The Breathalyzer is most commonly used to determine your BAC. But incorrect calibration and outside mitigating factors may render the test inconclusive — and perhaps inadmissible as evidence against you. We explore whether we can eliminate your DUI arrest based on a faulty machine and test results.
  • Challenging the field tests. Law enforcement officials often cite field sobriety tests as their proof of your intoxication. But you can fail a field test when too tired or too caffeinated. We challenge the field tests’ accuracy every step of the way.

Sometimes the best defense is a good offense. Your DUI defense lawyer in the Delaware, Ohio firm Owens Law Office builds your case using whatever resources are at his disposal to offer you the best possible options.
