Our firm regularly represents people accused of DUI / OVI in Knox, Morrow, Licking, Coshocton, and Richland Counties The correct term in Ohio is OVI, meaning operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs in violation of Ohio Revised Code Section 4511.19. OVI laws apply to cars, boats, bicycles, ATVs, and many other modes of transportation.

OVI cases involve more than just guilt or innocence. They involve license suspensions, jail time, insurance issues, job loss, alcohol classes, driving privileges, and other collateral consequences. These cases are even more difficult for people who drive for a living, including CDL drivers. We pay close attention to detail and provide practical guidance to achieve our clients’ specific goals.

OVI cases also require aggressive defense. We aggressively analyze every aspect of the case in hopes of undermining the allegations. This includes investigating what the clients has ingested, how that may affect the body, why they were stopped by the police, the administration of field sobriety tests, the results of any alcohol tests, and all other areas of the case. We build this aggressive defense off our experience and education.

Our goal is to get our clients out of their charges, but there is more to these cases than guilt or innocence. We offer professional service by clearly explaining the process, guiding you along every step of the way, and by making the experience as easy as possible for our clients.

Morgan E. Giles takes these matters seriously and strives to offer the highest quality of service possible. To achieve this goal, Morgan has taken the following OVI specific coursework:
