First and foremost, you need to do your due diligence and research your prospective DUI defense attorney in which to insure you hire someone who specializes/focuses on this singular area of law. Tim Huey, Jon Saia and Jeff Meadows in the Columbus, OH area are 3 of the finest in the state of Ohio in the arena of DUI defense -and are personal friends and colleageus to whose work product I can personally vouch for. Their contact informaiton can be found on www.NCDD.com, which is the website for the National College for DUI Defense, an organization devoted to the training and specialization in the arena of DUI defense. -As to any effect your OH dui case may have on your WV license, for now... just know that WV will only take action IF you are convicted of DUI and IF it gets sent to WV. My webiste www.WestVirginiaDUILawyers.com will advise of potential license ramifications if this were to occur based on your case fact allegations. Bottom line: Obtaining quality Ohio DUI defense counsel is your primary concern to which from there, all else can be competently and timely addressed. Sincerely, Harley O.
