Aggressive Defense for Repeat OVI Offenders

Call Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima at 513-496-0134 to schedule an initial consultation with one of our skilled criminal defense lawyers.
If you have been charged with OVI as a second- or third-time offender, it is important to work with an attorney who has the knowledge and experience to effectively handle your case.
One of our founding attorneys, Charles Rittgers, was also a founding member of the National DUI College. For more than 30 years, he has been protecting the rights and interests of people accused of drunk driving. He has extensive experience handling cases for both first-time and repeat OVI offenders.
Relying on his experience and that of our other attorneys, we are able to thoroughly investigate claims and effectively evaluate cases involving repeat OVI offenses. Based upon the particular circumstances involved, we craft defense strategies tailored to minimize the long-term consequences of any allegations.
Prior convictions will limit your options. With a second OVI conviction in ten years, you will likely face increased fines, mandatory treatment, a longer license suspension period, immobilization of your vehicle and restricted license plates. With a third offense in the same time period, you may face all of these consequences, plus forfeiture of your vehicle or mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device.
When you don’t know where to turn, we are here to help. In addition to handling the criminal charges, we also represent people accused of OVI in Administrative License Suspension hearings.
If you have been charged as a repeat OVI offender, contact us today to discuss your legal concerns.
