It is not easy finding a good attorney. The first thing you need to do in order to find a good lawyer is to make sure you know what you need them for. There are several different types of attorneys so you will need to figure out which one you need. You might want to find a federal criminal lawyer, find a DUI attorney, or a family law lawyer. The second thing you will want to make sure you have is money. Finding a good attorney is not cheap, nor do you want to pay for a cheap attorney.
So for example let us say that you are not having an easy time finding a good attorney. Then you realize that you need a DUI attorney because you were arrested for operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI) which is what law enforcement in Ohio primarily use. It is the same as driving under the influence (DUI) in other states. So now you know what kind of attorney you need because you have been charged with OVI in Ohio.
After finding a good attorney, you are informed that in some circumstances, in Ohio, a plea bargain of “wet reckless,” also known as a conviction of reckless driving involving alcohol, might be accepted by the prosecution. If you are convicted of OVI in Ohio, you can serve jail time from three days up to six months and you may be required to pay a fine ranging from $250 to one thousand dollars. If this is your first OVI offense it can still result in losing up to six points on your license. After an OVI conviction, you can lose your driver’s license after an Administrative License Suspension (ALS) hearing. What is most shocking, after finding a good attorney, yours reveals to you is that over 1.1 million people in Ohio has had a least one OVI. That equals one in every seven licensed drivers.
