    Please ignore the answer from the California lawyer as the law and procedures are much different out there. Regarding your arguments about the number produced by the machine, you can go that route but only if you can shell out the money for an expert, otherwise it will be deemed a "general attack" and prohibited by the court. Your case is on a Datamaster, not an I-8000 (they don't use the 8000 anywhere in Hancock County) so there are a number of unique approaches that you can take. Also,...

    Yes, if you are found guilty via plea or trial it will indeed be a conviction. The state is well inside the limits set by speedy trial and stat of lim. Blood cases, especially single car accident blood cases, are amongst the most complex we face here in Ohio. Besure to contact an OVI lawyer who has specific training regarding blood testing in OVI cases. I recently had a high test (blood) single car accident reduced to a no-point non-mover for my client and his license was not suspended...

    without question, yes... unless you feel confident enough in your own research and abilities to get the resolution you desire without a lawyer (note, you should not feel this confident in your own research and abilities) then you should hire someone. Moreover, you should hire an attorney who focuses his practice on OVI, Mark Gardner, Joe Hada, or Ken Bossin can handle your case or point you to someone who can.

    If he plead guilty your scope of appeal is very limited but best to contact someone now as there is a 30 day window to commence an appeal.

    No, you must fight (appeal) the administrative license suspension in EVERY CDL OVI case. Call Mark Gardner or Ken Bossin for NE Ohio.

    I practice in BG Muni and focus my practice on OVI work. In addition to the tolerance arguments made by the other posting attorneys (which requires additional $$$ to hire an expert to present at trial or motion hearing) there are many administrative regulation issues revolving around the breathalyzers they are using in BG (the I-8000 if you were tested by BG campus police or city police) and the impact of the new regulations on the admissibility of the BAC Datamaster if you were tested by the...

    When you were initially arrested you may have had (most likely) some duration of suspension imposed for refusing or failing the breath test. Depending on how the 2261 was filled out, it may order the BMV to terminate that license suspension. You need to get a copy of it from the clerk.

    I would delete this post (prosecutors & law enforcement tend to do a bit more work in felony cases) and contact an attorney asap, jeff meadows in cinci and larry denny in dayton are as good as they come.

    Dear Pinto, Sorry to hear about your evening with the mayor's daughter, I think that you being in college is a bonus for your attorney in your matter. Perhaps you should look to the Delta alumni network to find a lawyer. In the event that Otter has not passed the bar yet, I would advise shawn dominey to help you out in c-bus. Keep your head up, remember we didn't give up when the Germans Bombed Pearl Harbor. A diversion may well be in your future so that Dean Wormer will be none the...
