I am an aggressive DUI/OVI defense attorney.
On average I spend 60 hours a week (or more) working on DUI/OVI issues, either directly on behalf of my clients, or reading decisions from various appellate courts and maintaining the OVI website that I run called www.ovilaw.com or my blog (www.oviblog.com).
The www.ovilaw.com website is a site that other attorneys join for the sake of being kept up-to-date with the most recent decisions coming out of the Ohio Courts of Appeal that affect the way we argue cases in the trial courts.
In 2007, I tried 16 OVI cases and in 2008 I went to trial 14 times. 2009 appears to be headed in the same direction. I try cases for many reasons including the fact that I love to be in front of a jury! After all, I am a lawyer and lawyers should do jury trials! The fact that I handle 150+ OVI/DUI clients a year also lends itself to a high volume of trials as well.
When not in court fighting for my clients, I love to SCUBA dive and the attorney I work with, Rob Lyons, and I have turned our passions for SCUBA and OVI/DUI defense into a seminar that we now host every year in Key West, Florida.
The Diving Into An OVI/DUI Case seminar is a mid-winter mini-vacation that combines fun with learning as we host a legal education program with some of the nations top expert witnesses and Ohio's top OVI/DUI attorneys. Our firm (www.lyonsandlyonslaw.com) also hosts two other seminars each year in order to address the constantly changing area of OVI law. You can check out our seminars at www.lyonslegalseminars.com
