In Ohio, if you’re convicted of an OVI, or any traffic offense, that traffic offense, or OVI, will stay on your record forever. If you’re charged with OVI again within six years, the penalties you will be facing will be much more draconian that with the first OVI you dealt with. A lot of folks are under the misconception that a DUI conviction drops off your record after two years. That’s not entirely true. The points, which for a DUI conviction is six points in Ohio, the points drop off after two years; however, the conviction itself remains on your record forever.

Even good people can be caught up on the wrong side of the law. You or your family member has never been in this situation before. We’re in this situation every day. We’ll explain it to you, we’ll walk you through it, and you will feel comfortable with us representing you. If you’re stopped by the man, call the man.
