At some point, almost everyone has either experienced a traffic offense or knows someone who has. For most of us, traffic offenses represent an inconvenience that results in a raise in insurance premiums and some out-of-pocket expense. Many people do not realize that the majority of serious traffic violations are actually criminal offenses. In some cases, what a driver thought was just a traffic ticket can turn out to have lasting effects on his or her personal freedom. Many traffic offenses can lead to serious punishment, such as jail time, in addition to substantial monetary fines.
When you are stopped for committing a minor traffic offense, such as speeding, following too closely, or driving without insurance, you are likely to receive a ticket. You can either pay the fine within the time provided on the ticket or you can contest the ticket by scheduling a hearing.
For more serious traffic offenses, such as DUI, hit and run, habitual offender, or driving while license suspended or revoked, you need an experienced traffic offense lawyer. Graham & Graham Co., L.P.A. can help protect your interests.
DUI • DWI • OMVI
In Ohio, driving a vehicle is often a necessary freedom. Our goal is to protect your right to drive. Public perception categorizes people charged with drunk driving as criminals, even before they have been convicted of any crime. Being arrested for DUI in Ohio can be a stressful experience. Penalties may include suspension or loss of license, increased insurance rates, jail or prison time, probation, serious fines, impoundment of your vehicle, and issuance of family plates, which identify you as a habitual offender to the police and the general public. Whether you refuse to take a clinical blood or breath test requested by the police has significant consequences, due to a recent change in the law.
