DUI Case

A Relieved Client

“Joe Suhre represented me on a DUI case and made an extremely stressful situation much more tolerable. Throughout the process, Joe was easy to get in contact with, extremely responsive, and highly motivated to get me a decision of Not-Guilty! Joe made me feel like his only client, and went above and beyond on several occasions to explain to me the particular hurdles of my individual case. Joe proved himself to be a complete professional and skilled expert in his field time and time again. Joe secured me a decision of Not-Guilty!”

DUI Case

A Grateful Client

“Joe Suhre is the best attorney you will find to represent you. Along with having a stellar reputation in the legal community, I can also speak from personal experience that Joe is a highly skilled litigator and secured me Not-Guilty decisions on 2 separate DUI charges! Unfortunately, I was pulled over pending my first DUI charge, and charged with a second DUI. Joe navigated every legal issue involved and coached me through the process so that I could monitor the situation as it unfolded.”

We’ll bring the knowledge and experience we have in representing drunk driving cases in Columbus to your case, allowing you to relax and know that we have things under control.

Our Columbus OVI Attorneys are on Your Side

Recently, Forbes Magazine ranked Columbus as the best place in the country to raise a family. Anxious to maintain this image, the justice system seeks to keep the streets of Columbus safe by strictly enforcing OVI / DUI laws.

Being charged with a OVI / DUI in Columbus can be intimidating. If you are like many of our clients, you have never been in trouble. You are an upstanding citizen who may have made an error in judgment. You are not a criminal. We understand and we’re here to help.

Taking care of what matters most after a criminal arrest.

Our first priority is you. We discuss your case with you and together we determine the best defense for your situation. We take into consideration what you need and what you want.

Most people need to drive. We help you to negotiate the labyrinth of the DMV and courts to restore your driving privileges as soon as possible. From there, we pursue the best resolution to the charge against you. This means determining the ramifications a DUI conviction would have on your work, education, or reputation. We then work to minimize any effect.

Our Columbus OVI Lawyer will fight for your future.

Without an experienced Columbus DUI lawyer, a DUI charge can negatively affect your future opportunities and prospects. Our main objective is to avoid this possibility by finding your best defense.

We explore weaknesses in the case against you that could lead to dismissal or acquittal. When this isn’t possible, we work with the prosecution to negotiate a reduced charge to minimize the impact of a DUI on your record. The courts don’t necessarily want to ruin your life, they just don’t want you to ever drink and drive again. Their leniency may be directly related to convincing them that you won’t.

If you have been arrested for an OVI in Columbus, our criminal defense attorneys are here to stand with you and help you through this difficult time. Give us a call right now. Our reputation and experience with the Franklin County courts allow us to win or negotiate the best outcome for you.
