If you were arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated (or under the influence of drugs) in Ashland County, your arrest was likely made by the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Ashland County Sheriff's Office or a police department in Ashland County such as the Ashland Police Department. DUI arrests originate either from a routine traffic stop or a sobriety checkpoint. The Koffel Law Firm can evaluate your traffic stop to determine whether your arrest was lawful or not. Unlawful police stops can be cause for charge dismissals or reductions.

Benefits of Retaining The Koffel Law Firm
One of the major benefits of retaining our law firm for DUI/OVI defense is that we are often able to represent you at your first hearing without you having to be present. This can alleviate a substantial burden. Mr. Koffel or another of the skilled attorneys at our firm may also be able to petition for restricted driving privileges, but these can potentially be difficult to obtain. If this is your first DUI offense, you may be eligible for restricted driving privileges 16 days after your arrest. For first chemical test refusal cases, eligibility for restricted driving privileges will not be offered until day 31 and potentially not be granted until the very end of your case.
The DUI / OVI attorneys at our firm are familiar with the Ashland County courts and judges. The Koffel Law Firm makes it a point to build relationships with people in the court system so that our clients are treated with fairness and respect. The Koffel Law Firm is seasoned in this area and you can trust our experience to get you the best possible results in your Ashland County OVI case.
