Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol

At Rittgers & Rittgers, our attorneys have been at the forefront of Ohio drunk driving law for decades. Our lawyers have argued several OVI cases before the Ohio Supreme Court and we understand how new laws and rulings may impact your case.

You can benefit from our knowledge — whether you are our client or not — because we have written an OVI White Paper to help those accused of Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol.
