DUI’S CAN OCCUR ANYWHERE AND WHEN THEY DO THE DAMAGES CAN BE SEVERE.
Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs is prohibited by Ohio law. The laws permit prosecutors to pursue charges against anyone suspected of DUI for operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI) and prosecutors take these cases very seriously.
However, a conviction is not inevitable in a DUI case and the highly experienced DUI defense attorneys at Groth & Associates in Toledo are here to help you.
PENALTIES OF A DUI CONVICTION
Ohio law sets out many penalties for a convicted DUI offender that can be imposed by the courts or by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). Some of these penalties can include the following:
- Costly fines and court costs;
- Time in jail;
- Loss of your driver’s license;
- Ignition interlock device on your vehicle;
- Alcohol education courses.
In addition to the court-imposed penalties, a DUI can affect many other parts of your life. Losing your driver’s license can keep you from attending work or school. If your job requires you to drive, you will be unable to perform your job duties and may risk losing your position. Having a conviction on your record can also hurt future job prospects. In the end, the long-term consequences of a DUI conviction can be serious and our DUI defense lawyers will strive to help you avoid such consequences whenever possible.

WORDS FROM OUR CLIENTS
Our experience with Attorney Stevin Groth was nothing short of life changing.ALFRED & JENNIFER
When we first contacted Mr. Groth, he gave us his cell phone number and we were able to directly contact him day or night. His knowledge of the Ohio judicial system was astounding. He handled all aspects of our case himself, never once handing off our case to jr. associates. Stevin had positive relationships with all the judges, district attorneys and court personal that we came in contact with. Stevin’s persuasive arguments on our son’s behalf cleared him of all charges. Because of Stevin’s abilities, our son is able to move forward with his life without the stigma of a criminal record. We could not recommend Stevin Groth more highly.
