Driver’s License Suspension

Attorneys Handling Administrative License Suspension Hearings in Ohio

Regardless of the ultimate outcome of a criminal case related to drunk driving, anyone who is charged with OVI in Ohio is subject to a driver’s license suspension. Anyone who refuses to take a breath test is subject to a similar suspension.

However, if you are facing a potential driver’s license suspension, you have the right to an administrative license suspension (ALS) hearing. At Rittgers & Rittgers, in Warren County, Ohio, our lawyers provide skilled defense representation for these hearings.

Call Rittgers & Rittgers at 513-932-2115 to schedule an initial consultation with one of our skilled criminal defense lawyers.

For more than 30 years, attorney Charles Rittgers has been addressing the consequences of OVI charges for clients throughout Ohio. In addition to being one of the founding attorneys of our firm, he is one of the founding members of the National DUI College.

All of our criminal defense attorneys are well-versed in all aspects of OVI, DUI and DWI law, and are able to effectively advise clients facing these charges. We understand the importance of your driving privileges, and we will work diligently to protect them.

The ALS hearing is much like a mini-trial — and we take all of the steps available to protect your interests and your driver’s license.

First, we will petition the court to reinstate your driving privileges. Then we will challenge the validity of your initial stop, and any evidence collected in support of the charges. We will fully examine any evidence presented to see if the police officers followed proper procedures.

When you don’t know where to turn, we are here to help. If you have questions about your driver’s license suspension following allegations of DUI, OWI, or DWI, contact us today. We’ll help you understand your rights and options.
