Our goal is to protect you from the consequences of a DUI/OVI conviction in Southern Ohio or Northern Kentucky. DUI stands for driving under the influence; OVI stands for operating a vehicle under the influence. In Ohio, drunk driving and DUI are legally referred to as OVI.

At The Law Offices of Steven R. Adams, our Cincinnati OVI and DUI lawyers strive to protect the rights, freedoms, and futures of our clients and fight to secure the best outcome possible. We've helped countless clients get "not guilty" verdicts or secure reduced charges and lower penalties. Let us put this experience to work for you!

We Personally Attend to Your Case

Every DUI/OVI case is unique. This means the facts and circumstances of your arrest will determine your charges and potential consequences. For example, courts may consider factors such as:

  • Whether accidents or injuries were involved
  • Your blood alcohol content (BAC)
  • Your criminal history

No matter the charges you face, you can expect to be prosecuted aggressively and penalized harshly if convicted. Law enforcement and prosecutors are intent on gaining convictions in DUI/OVI cases, and it takes skill to create customized defense strategies that challenge their claims. To ensure your rights are protected at all points of the criminal process, and that you receive personalized representation, you need an experienced drunk driving lawyer on your side.
