Need a Kettering DUI Lawyer? I Can Help!

You thought a drunk driving arrest could never happen to you or someone close to you, but now you have suddenly realized you need help. You are probably asking yourself, “What happens next?” or “What do I do now?” For over twenty years we have been representing good people who face an OVI charge.

As a Kettering DUI lawyer, I regularly appear in the Kettering Municipal Court representing the accused drunk driver.  In addition, I established KetteringDUI.com and www.KetteringOVI.com to help you access court services and learn about services provided. Access to the court concerns cases arising anywhere in the Cities of Centerville, Kettering or Washington Township.

You can rest assured that the government is going to do everything they can to try to convict you of DUI.  An arrest is a life-altering event with repercussions that may last for years to come.  Whether a bad decision brought you to this point or you were wrongfully arrested, it doesn’t matter; decisive action is necessary. Make the call to an experienced and credentialed OVI professional who is equipped with the knowledge, the expert resources and the skills to win your Kettering DUI case. In addition to a top-notch attorney, you will have a staff that is 100% dedicated to DUI defense. Also, you will not have to guess who will appear on your behalf.

Make A Right Decision Today

Today, you have an opportunity to make the right decision — a decision that may save you months in jail, thousands of dollars and a permanent criminal record.  Most people arrested for a Kettering DUI are good people. Therefore, it is apparent that they just made a mistake.  Due to bad circumstances, they have been wrongfully accused of something they did not do. An arrest can be unfair. If you are stopped and the police are of the opinion you are intoxicated, you are going to be arrested. What does this mean to you? Now you are facing serious charges and possible jail time. There are ways to fight to avoid these consequences.  Consequently, with the help of Kettering DUI lawyer Charles M. Rowland II and his team of experts you can get your life back.

Standardized Field Sobriety Tests: “Your Drunk Tests Are Hard”

00Field Tests (SFSTs)Tags: , , , , , , ,

Standardized Field Sobriety Tests

standardized field sobriety testsOne of the areas where a DUI attorney’s experience is most obvious is in the cross-examination of the arresting officer on the issue of the standardized field sobriety tests.  The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) determines which tests, if any, is correlated with impairment by alcohol. Due to extensive testing, NHTSA determined that three tests were specific for alcohol intoxication: the HGN (horizontal gaze nystagmus), the walk & turn test and the one leg stand test. This three-test battery are now referred to as the “standardized field sobriety tests.”

Why Is This Important?

Because the officer is using the non-standardized field sobriety tests to establish probable cause for an OVI arrest, he or she is on a faulty scientific and legal footing. Therefore, your DUI lawyer will challenge these tests as not probative of intoxication and that they are irrelevant for purposes of determining impairment. Hence, Rocky River v. Horvath, 2002 WL 538755 (Ohio Ct. App. 8th Dist. Cuyahoga 2002) has decided that these non-standardized tests are improper because they have no standardized application and they have not been approved by NHTSA. [Note: this opinion was written by now-Supreme Court Justice Terrence O’Donnell].

In addition, the Second District Court of Appeals ruled that non-standardized tests can come in under the totality of the circumstances used to reach a probable cause determination. State v. Rajehel, 2003-Ohio-3975. The Ohio Supreme Court ruled that the tests may be used as lay evidence of intoxication. Brooklyn Hts. v. Yee, 2009-Ohio-4552.

“All I do is DUI defense”

Since 1995, I made a practice of defending the accused drunk driver since 1995. Twice a year, I volunteer at the police academy as an instructor. I teach potential police officers how DUI attorneys challenge the standardized field sobriety tests. Especially relevant, I lecture on topics related to the standardized field sobriety tests. Credentials are important. Therefore, I have been certified in the field tests. I am as qualified as any law enforcement officer to administer and evaluate the tests. In addition, I have trained as a DRE (drug recognition expert). It is my goal to provide you with a thorough and complete defense. Call me at (937) 318-1384 to schedule a free consultation.

Are You The Best DUI Lawyer?

best DUI lawyerAre You The Best DUI Lawyer?

Someone called my office the other day and demanded an answer. “I want the best DUI lawyer, Is that you?” Believe it or not, I have encountered this question a few times. I always answer by saying, “I have experience, credentials and a great track record, but you should sit down with me and see if I’m right for you.”  The truth is that you have to choose an attorney who is qualified.  Once they pass that test, you have to judge them on a more intuitive level. Do you like them? Has their staff treated you well? Can you get to their office easily? Does the attorney answer your questions? How much will you pay?

What Do You Think?

All of these factors musts be taken into account. I may be the best DUI lawyer on paper, but if you do not believe you can put your full faith and trust in me, you should consider another attorney. So where does that leave us? I hope that after reviewing my credentials you will call my office and sit down with me for a free consultation.  If this article raises any questions, please contact me and I’ll do my best to give you an answer.

As always, thanks for taking the time to review DaytonDUI and all of the hard work I have put into becoming the best DUI lawyer I can be. Remember my motto, “All I do is DUI defense.” (BTW, I have no idea how the indentations will turn out below!)
