The DUI/OVI Process in Columbus, Ohio

The Hemminger Law Firm will help you through the DUI process. Your first court appearance is usually within five business days of your arrest. You should contact Hemminger Criminal Defense prior to that time. We will contest the OVI by entering a not guilty plea, file a license suspension appeal, plus ask the court to reinstate driving privileges.

Our office will also ask for a copy of the prosecutor’s evidence including test results, police reports, videos and other information. Once our office has a copy of the evidence, we can begin our investigation and we will decide together how to defend you against the charges.

Contact an Ohio DUI lawyer as soon as you have been arrested for DUI/OVI. Since time is of the essence, you should contact us any time of the day or night if you have been arrested.
