Medina, Ohio Lawyer Delivers Strong Defense Against DUI/DWI Charges
Aggressive advocacy to confront drunk or drugged driving allegations
An arrest on a charge of driving under the influence (DUI) or while intoxicated (DWI) can happen at any time and throw your life into turmoil. In 32 years of experience at the Law Offices of David V. Gedrock, I have seen people unjustly charged throughout northeastern Ohio. I have decades of experience securing reduced charges, dismissals and acquittals for defendants who have been wrongly accused of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or OVI, which includes DUI and DWI. Even a first DWI offense can lead to a loss of driving privileges and jail time, so if you’ve been arrested, a tough advocate with a successful track record might make the difference between severe punishment and a favorable resolution.
Skilled representation to challenge blood alcohol readings and other evidence
Determining a driver’s blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, is not an exact science. Though the standard BAC level for a DWI charge in Ohio is .08, a reading at that level is not always reliable. I can help fight the evidence against you and assist with special circumstances, including:
- Testing problems — Flaws can occur at any stage of an OVI/DUI/DWI prosecution. Overzealous policing, poor testing procedures, and contaminated results often lead to unjust charges.
- Commercial vehicle operators — Drivers of commercial vehicles are in violation of the law if their BAC reaches .04. Special penalties can apply to commercial license holders convicted of DWI who transport hazardous substances, even while operating their own vehicle.
- Young drivers — The legal BAC limit is much stricter for drivers under the age of 21. For these young people, a reading between .02 and .08 results in a misdemeanor charge and license suspension, along with possible fines and jail time.
Even when your situation seems hopeless, the Law Offices of David V. Gedrock examines every single aspect of your charges to detect and exploit errors in the case against you. I will not allow police or prosecutors to intimidate you or force you into surrendering your legal rights when a proper case does not exist.
