DUI Law in Ohio

Posted April 29, 2011 By Richard Leo

It is important that those arrested for drunk driving in Ohio consult with a Cleveland DUI Attorney rather than Denver law firms.  Local jurisdictions determine not just what constitutes driving under the influence, but the penalties that accompany a given offense.
