We will continue to post information as it becomes available to us. As always, our recommendation is that you don’t drink and drive. Should you get caught up in a jam, however, we have two law firms ready to defend your rights. In Central Ohio we have Hastie Legal Offices. In Northeast Ohio we have Taubman Law. Both firms know how to protect the rights of those accused of OVI in Ohio.
