Drunk driving is called operating a motor vehicle while impaired, or OVI, in Ohio, although it is more commonly known as DUI or DWI. The penalties are very serious and can include jail time, fines and a driver's license suspension of six months to three years. When you add the cost of paying high-risk insurance once your driver's license is reinstated, a DUI/DWI conviction poses a significant hardship on your family.
Ohio is a preferred-arrest state in cases of domestic violence. This means that if police are called to your home following a domestic disturbance, somebody is probably going to jail. Once the 911 call is made, it is easier for police to arrest than not arrest, even if they have a weak case.
With the exception of possession of a small amount of marijuana, all drug charges in Ohio are felonies. This "one-size-fits-all" approach to drug crimes has had a devastating effect on the lives of many people. As your lawyer, I can handle the defense of drug crimes that include drug trafficking, drug possession and drug distribution.
Many people who are arrested for sex crimes such as public indecency or soliciting are embarrassed and quickly plead guilty or no-contest with the hopes of making the charges go away. However, the charges won't go away. Any misdemeanor or felony sex crime conviction will result in a lifelong criminal record, which can have a devastating effect on your life. If you plead guilty to a sex crime that is subject to sex offender registration, you will carry that label forever.
I have extensive knowledge of the way law enforcement and prosecutors use the Internet to investigate Internet and computer crimes. I have solid defense strategies to protect the rights of those under investigation for Internet sex crimes and Internet theft and fraud.
Guns and weapons charges can be even more severe when brought in conjunction with a drug crime, assault crime or any other type of crime.
Ohio is a no-fault divorce state. This means that you do not have to prove that your spouse did something wrong to file for divorce. As your attorney, I seek the best possible outcome for the decisions that will need to be made during your divorce. These decisions involve property division, spousal support, child support and child custody.
If you have been injured or a loved one is killed because of someone else's negligence, you have a right to seek compensation for economic and emotional damages. While most personal injury and wrongful death cases are covered by the insurance company of the at-fault party, obtaining the compensation you deserve is usually difficult without a lawyer's help. Boske Law Offices provides strong advocacy to people who have been injured in car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bitten by dogs and sustained injuries through other types of negligence.
