First Offense DUI

DUI Defense for First-Time Offenders

A first-offense DUI charge can take you by surprise. If you're under age 21, the blood alcohol content (BAC) need only be .02 to be charged with Operating a Vehicle After Underage Consumption (OVAUC). Ohio is a .08 state for adults.

Common Concerns for First-Offense DUI/DWI Offenders About Drunk Driving Charges

A drunk driving charge in Ohio is technically an Operating a Vehicle under the Influence (OVI) charge, which includes both alcohol and drug impairment. Attorney Migdal will answer all of your questions in more detail, but most individuals have the following questions:

  • Should I have taken the Breathalyzer test? Many drivers have questions about whether or not an attorney can help them develop a breath test defense if they "fail" a Breathalyzer.
  • Will I lose my license? A driver's license suspension of 6 months is required if convicted of a first-offense OVI. Attorney Migdal has been successful in gaining driving privileges (enabling clients to drive to work or school) for first-offense DUI offenders.
  • Am I going to jail? A typical sentence for jail time and fines or penalties starts at three days in jail and a $250 fine, and goes up from there. Kirk Migdal is a lawyer with a proven record of many successes obtaining acquittals and minimal sentences for clients who have been convicted.
  • How do we fight it? Each case has a unique set of circumstances and facts. Attorney Migdal strives always to find creative solutions to legal problems. If there is a way to obtain an acquittal or minimize the consequences, he will find it.
