Not only is your livelihood on the line, but your reputation can be permanently damaged as well. Voted Top DUI Attorneys in the State of Ohio by the National Advocacy for DUI Defense, we have the experience that is necessary to create a powerful and effective DUI and OVI defense for commercial drivers in Dayton.

Getting pulled over under suspicion of DUI as a commercial driver can be the beginning of a legal nightmare. The choices you make can hurt your case and you may not even know it. If convicted, you could lose your license for one year for a first offense or permanently for a second.

  • Three to six months in jail
